Mmm .. lets get our terms right for clarity, I guess you mean sound OUTPUT not input? Also the CPU (Central processing Unit) is the engine that does the work, the Vista OS is the brains behind the magic that makes a computer run, allows human input, shows output, controls all the peripheral devices of a modern computer and creates useful work for the CPU to do. So we say that the OS (operating system (VISTA)) is not finding the drivers that make the audio device work correctly.

First thing to do is to check your device manager (Start ==> control panel ==> device manager) open up sound devices and see what is installed.

Then get back to us to say if the device appears installed or not, if there is a yellow exclaimation mark or red cross then something is wrong. If it is then right click the device and un-install. reboot your computer. Then when Vista restarts it will say "new device found do you want to install drivers?". Get the disk with your drivers and put into cd/dvd drive and click yes. If you do not have the driver disk then click okay and vista will look for the drivers online. Let us know how thing proceed.
