I have a Fujitsu Lifebook C-6631. I have reformatted and done a clean install ox XP Pro. I cannot get the sound working. Device manager shows it as "Intel AC"97 Audio Controller" with a yellow exclamation point. Under those properties Device Status shows "This device cannot start. (Code 10). I do not have the original install disks. I check the Fujitsu site and they have the sound listed as Yamaha AC97. I have tried every download I could find for both and reinstalled XP 3 times and stellcan't get audio. Any ideas?

Don't know how old it is. It belongs to a neighbor. He had XP logon password protected and couldn't remember the password

I can see on Fujitsu site, they have drivers for Win 98 available for your laptop, so it may be pretty old.
I suspect, sound chip may be dead.

Don't think it's worth changing motherboards.

I don't think so, either.
Did you try headphones?
