The best and easiest thing to do if you're not to techie is to go to Fujitsu website and look up your model number. It should have a spec of whats in the pc. Also if there are any updates for the soundcard they might be on there. click here

If you mean windows sound recorder (not the best)

Try 'Start/accessories/entertainment' for that one.

Or 'start/control panel/ Sounds and Audio/ Audio tab.'
could be something that has been unticked after a system crash

Issues with Vista and Realtek sound recorder, I have (without knowing the model number of your laptop) what I think is the same sound chip in my Acer laptop.

The confusion arises from the two available either have the High Definition Audio chip (likely, and the one I have) Or the standard Realtek 7.1 chip. these use different drivers, and the built in mixer facilities will not work with Vista. If you can post back with the model of your machine, we can give more information, but the link for downloading both of these is click here

Note that you need to uninstall the old ones first and if you are running Vista, then choose the driver only option.

'easiest thing to do if you're not to techie'

Have you ever tried SIW, cannot be anything easier for finding out all about your PC.

If you are thinking of downloading the Realtek onboard sound standard or HD drivers, best not to use the Realtek website, which is notoriously slow; use MajorGeeks or Softpedia instead.

The Realtek drivers, especially for Vista, are being updated on a very regular basis at present and both the websites mentioned feature them immediately they are released.

Tries to install the newest 7.1 drivers but after re-start it bleats about incompatable device driver....I have reverted to the old one for now.
