Did this sound card come with the pc? If so, I'm thinking it might be a good idea to download the driver from the pc manufacturer's website.

I would go into 'Add/Remove Programs' in Control Panel and delete the old one, download a fresh copy and install it.

Your also going to have to go into Device Manager and remove the realtec AC97 multi-media device.

start>control panel>system>hardware>device manager

look under 'sound, video and game controllers' for that realtec AC97 multi-media device

Here are some instructions on how to install the drivers:


I would install the drivers in safe mode. Press F8 every second on bootup to get there.
