It will install, and require a reboot
If it still does not work, then follow the same procedure, but at point 11 choose “IMA ADPCM

WHY DIDN’T MUSICMATCH FIGURE IT OUT?
So I did it and it did not work just made it worse!!! Everything has sound except browsing the internet and playing games and when windows loads. I can't even get sound on youtube videos. I have tried to do a restore but it hasn't worked. I really need to get this fixed before my husband gets home!!! Thanks so much.
The pc is a compaq presario sr19wm if that helps. Windows media player has sound.
