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. ;)
