Please Help!

I have a Toshiba Tecra 9000 notebook and recently discovered the sound was no longer working. I am unsure as to exactly when it first stopped working but believe it was either with MS Windows 2000 Updates or when cleaning up PC after Spyware attack. Upon checking the actual device (Yamaha AC-XG Audio Device) it has the every so helpful " ! " with a 'Code 10 - the device cannot start', within the 'Device Status' screen.
I have removed device and allowed windows to detect & install, no success, then downloaded and tried many device drivers and generic drivers, and
even the latest as suggested on a Toshiba support website I located

Driver Date: 22/05/2001 Version:

I am at a complete loss as to why it stopped working and what to try next to try and resolve the problem. Any
assistance or advice would be greatly appreciated.

It is possible that after installation of some MS Updates that the audio driver is blocked from loading to your system and no sound can be heard.

If you want you can try to install this driver:

It helps after installation of SP2. I am not sure if it will help in your case but you can try it.
