I recently reloaded Windows xp and the sound card cannot start. When I go to Device manager, I get the yellow question mark over the C-Media AC97 Audio Device. I do not have any sort of manufacturer restore disk. I've tried downloading every possible driver for the C-Media AC97 and it still doesn't help. I've unistalled and re-installed the sound card and still no help. I read on one of these chat lines that it's a problem with the motherboard. From all I can see, my motherboard is an AMI EC591. I can't find any sort of driver update anywhere on the internet. I still have no sound and I'm at a loss. I don't know where to continue from here. If anyone can help me figure out how to get my sound card card to start, I would appreciate the help.

I finally got the sound card going. Here's how I did it.
I went to the Lavalys web-site and I downloaded a free program called Everest Home Edition. Thank you user ADMIN for your 7/16/05 posting suggesting I use Everest. Everest is a hardware diagnosis tool that gives hardware information. This software identified the sound device as SIS 7012. I google searched "SIS 7012 driver" and I got pages of sites to download the driver. I downloaded the driver, restarted the computer and I had sound. If only I had this info about 12 hours earlier!!!

Sorry I couldn't help you jrkrown, I too use the suggestion of others to help solve my errors. I'm not much of a computer expert to help others. Hey, congrats on fixing your sound, you practically fixed it on your own!
