Well that didn't give me the information I need. Lets try this:


Please download CPUz from my signature below

1: Save it to your desktop.
2: Click on the icon it creates and let it run
3: I need the following information from it.
4: First click on the Mainboard tab at the top of the window and give me Manufacturer and Model number it shows

Also if you could provide the make and model of your system if it is a brand name
Please include in your next reply

Go HERE and scroll down till you find the Sound heading and under that you will see this:


Driver Name Realtek High Definition Audio Driver
Version 2.04 (5700)
Release Date 2008/09/09

Update Description
Special Note
File Size 46.9MB
Support O.S Windows XP ; Windows XP 64bit edition ; Windows Vista 64bit ; Windows Vista 32bit



This is the driver you want. Under this you will see the links to the driver with the following:

Taiwan USA Europe china

Most likely pick USA and download then install the driver. You may be prompted to reboot. If so then do and check your sound then. Let me know if it works then. :)

Download Realtek AC97 driver

Go to the link and get the AC97 HD driver and install it.
Go back to post 10 and revisit the site there. Find the chipset driver and install that. It may fix the problem also
