Sager 9860/9890 Vista no HD sound issue resolved !!!!
Thanks to Computer_Potato, my problem with no sound and 39 unknown devices is resolved. I followed his link to get info on removing the modem. It was indeed easy.
Just go to the www.alienware.com
, click on support and type 'keyboard removal' into the search box. You will get instructions and pictures for removing the keyboard. Then remove the five little black phillips screws
holding down the aluminum shield to expose the hardware beneath. Look up in the upper left corner for the
"postage stamp" sized module held down by two more phillips screws. Remove them, lift the modem out, unplug the small connector and the modem is gone.
Now just put everything back together and install the latest Realtek HD driver straight from www.realtek.com
Voila! You now have sound.
