Hi!

I've got a error similar to http://www.geekstogo...l=code 10 sound

What I tried to do was run everest and find the drivers. The everest shortcut is outdated however, so I also got a driver from driverguide. My problem is that the installation guide for the driver says:


"

1. Click Start -> Settings -> Control Panel.

2. Double click System.

3. Click Device Manager.

4. Double click PCI Multimedia Audio Device.

5. Click Reinstall Driver.

6. Click Next.

7. Click Next.

8. Click Specify a location, then type d:\sound\Wolfson\win98. Now press ENTER.

9. Click Next.

10. Click Next.

11. Put the Windows 98 CD disc into the CD-ROM drive, then click OK.

12. When the files have been copied, click Finish.

13. Click Close.

14. Restart Windows 98 and for changes to take effect.
"

But I do not have a Windows 98 CD

What should I do?

Thank you in andvance

Monker, this forum is for Windows XP, 2000, 2003 and NT. Your post belongs in the Windows 95-98 forum here:

http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/Windows-98-95-f3.html

I'll see if I can get someone to move it over there for you.

One thing I will say though, you will need a Windows 98 (probably SE) CD to install a device driver as the install utility almost always asks for it, even if you are reinstalling a driver.

Your win98 files may be on your hard disk, in which case you don't need a CD. There may be a folder called win98 or Install, or look in Windows/Options for a folder called cabs or Install. You can also use Search and look for files with a .cab extension. There are about twenty of them in the installation folder.

Just point to that folder when the driver installation asks for your CD.

Hey.. the driver I was give seems to want me to have windows 98. This is the only driver I can find. I have windows XP Professional. And somehow XP Professional isn't so professional. It won't let me select wherefrom to take the driver. Maybe you know where I can find a better driver?

My Everest scan showed me that:

Sound Card: 82801FBM ICH6-M AC'97 Audio Controller (B2)

Furthermore

Operative system: Windows XP Professional
Driver: 810/E Chipset AC97 Codec 82801 AA/AB from DriverGuide.com

The Link in Everest doesn't work for me:
http://support.intel...audiodriver.htm

thanx
Fredrik

I seem only to be able to either choose from a list of drivers or suggest to the computer where it search for drivers. Not specify and select at the same time. If I want to choose, the computer provides the alternatives.

If you have XP why are you trying to install drivers for win98? Find the drivers for XP, go to the machine makers site, or the motherboard makers site and download the correct drivers for your operating system. I think that is an Intel chip, you may be able to get them from Intel.

Some who didn't know what they were doing posted them to Driver Guide, get the right thing.
