Thanks for replying but this Realtek AC'97 A401 is not the proper sound driver for my sound card. I've tried before and it did not work. Do you have other suggestions?

They should be on the motherboard CD if you have that, or from the motherboard manufacturer's site

You can use Everest if you don't know which model the motherboard is

Items in blue which are underlined are clickable to give more information about the process

Download and install Everest Home Edition

Run the programme, click + next to computer then summary

Look on the right for motherboard

Look at the manufacturer’s site for the suitable drivers for your Operating System


If you are unable to find them, please post the make and model here before you download anything

Please set a system restore point before you install anything

I lost my drivers CD and I also downloaded Everest soft. Everest soft showed that my motherboard name is unknown. I thought about checking my mobo but I was afraid that I might spoiled it :whistling: . Untill now, I just know that my sound device's name is Intel 82801DB(M) ICH4(-M) - AC'97 Audio Controller [B-1].

E-Mail realtek to ask which drivers you need

mailto:pctech@realtek.com.tw

The Intel site just refers you to the motherboard site, and there are so many AC 97 versions
