I just built my computer and everything was working great, but then i realized the my sound wasn't working. This is about 3 days since i loaded all the drivers and got the computer working the way i want.

My sound is integrated into the mother board, and the driver i installed for sound is "Realtek AC'97 Audio CODECs" or something close to that.

I have tried reinstalling the driver, and that worked once but the a few hours later my sound went out again and installing the driver again didn't work.

Can anyone help me?

I attached the DxDiag.txt, so hopefully that works.

Well, i just started up a game of Unreal Tournament 2004 and the sound worked. So i guess i don't need the help anymore. But if you find anything unusual in the DxDiag i would appreciate the information.

Thanks

What motherboard do you have?
Goto the manufactuers website and look for updated drivers.
Run DxDiag again and do the sound test, post errors back here.

Go Here

Download the one that say's Windows 98gold/98se/me/2000/XP/2003.

I ain't expecting this to work but because the dxdiag showed you were using a driver that is not digitally signed you might as well give it a try. When a drive is digitally signed all that it means is that MS has tested the driver to be compatible it does not mean that it won't or is not working.

If this don't work and the system is otherwise stable/running good I would just get a sound card and install it, it does not have to be a expensive one. There seems to be a lot of sound problems lately on new builds using this onboard sound chip and the only way around it at least that I have found is to purchase a card.

Disable the onboard sound in bios before installing a sound card.
