Well a few points here.
1. This wasn't *my* laptop. This was a friends laptop.
2. I found an identical laptop at the store where the sound was working
3. I run vista on my desktop where the sound works perfectly fine
4. I listen to all legal music. I rip and encode my own mp3's from my
own cds. Last I checked that was perfectly legal. Otherwise stuff like
iPods wouldn't exist. ;)
