I installed Windows XP Pro w/ SP2 on my rather old ASUS M200N laptop a while ago, and like many others I am having some problems installing the right driver for the soundcard, which is incredibly irritating as I like to work with music production on my laptop.
When I start up Windows it automatically detects the RealTek AC'97 driver, but all my attempts to install that driver has failed. I have no CD. Moreover, downloading the driver from:
...but that doesn't work either. In fact when I try to do so, Windows crashes and my computer reboots.
I have tried installing different drivers manually, but the sound is not good (it kind of gets stuck like a badly scrathed CD), which I believe is due to the poor incompatibility with my hardware.
If you have any clue what driver I should use, and more importantly where I can download it, your help would be much appreciated.
My system details are:
Mobile Intel Pentium M, 1400 MHz (14 x 100)
ASUS M2000N Series Notebook
Intel Montara-GM i855GM
502 MB (PC2100 DDR SDRAM)
***Current multimedia driver***
Intel 82801DBM ICH4-M - AC'97 Audio Controller [B-1]
