Hi there I recently installed a new PSU in my computer and now the on-board sound will not work. Windows media player says

"Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device. There may not be a sound device

installed on your computer, it may be in use by another program, or it may not be functioning properly. Then when I checked

the device manager I get "This device cannot start.(Code 10)".The problem lies in the avance AC97 audio. PLease help me with

this problem. Thank you.

Need more details. You've probably lost the sound driver. What type of computer is it and what model number is it?
