How about opening the case & finding the Realtek audio chip on the motherboard? That way you'll know without a doubt what the model number is....

The driver from Realtek doesn't work (there at that link it is mention also from Realtek the following "Audio drivers available for download from the Realtek website are general drivers for our audio ICs, and may not offer the customizations made by your system/motherboard manufacturer. To be sure you obtain the full features/customizations provided in your original audio product, please download the latest drivers from your system/motherboard manufacturer's website."

I have tried also the driver from my motherboards manufacturer again with no success, so this only way to find a solution is to find the name of the audio chip but if I open up the case I don't know where 2 search and it is best done with the software Everest Ultimate edition (from Lavalys). It is great software since it tells you all the information you need to know about the system of your computer, but I don't know where, in which tab I must search for the name of the audio chip.

Try Belarc Advisor as well.

What's the manufacturer/model of your computer? You didn't provide that information. Though you provided what I assume is the MOBO.

Follow the quote posted in #3 above. There are an infinite amount of variations available even for chips in the same class.

Using drivers from Realtek is a last resort.

I just tried that software but it sucks, under the area "Multimedia" where only the following:
MusCDriverV32 (8x)
Realtek AC'97 Audio

While the Everest Ultimate gave a lot of information (which and because I have no idea about these things, I can't find it). See some screenshots from the Everest ultimate:

You still haven't provided the Manufacturer/Model of your computer.

You mean that you don't know the model of your motherboard?

Belarc and Everest are old news. Everest hasn't been updated in years.

The best utility for determining everything about your computer is SIW.exe. Get it at the link below.

After determining the motherboard model if you can't find the driver site post back with the complete brand and model number and we will assist you with a link to the site.

Sorry that I didn't provide the information about the manufacturer, I didn't show it, my PC is self made.

This software (SIW) indeed is the KING, I found aaaall the information about RealTek AC'97 Audio and it is in the following screenshot:
http://reptilesalonica.com/aaa-vari...

screenshot from the processors:
http://reptilesalonica.com/aaa-vari...

screenshot from the motherboard:

I cross fingers that the information I have provide you above is useful, so you can help me. There are so many days I try to figure out and it drives me mad.

Might be able to track down something using the info from SIW.

What, if anything shows under the heading of System Summary? The brand of the board may show there.

You probably mean the name of the manufacturer in the header? It is showing in one of the screenshots above (Turbo X) but it's just a name. One computer company in Greece is making self-made computers from scratch, so..nothing like Dell, Acer etc...

It would also help for you to look at the motherboard itself. Somewhere around the border you should find a model number.

Di you try the SIW System summary?

You didn't respond to my questions. Did you look in SIW at the System Summary. The make of the motherboard may be listed there or at least a hint.

Also, somewhere on the motherboard printed circuit board there will be additional info printed. Usually on the border.

BTW, did you look in the BIOS settings to verify all sound listings are enabled. Some boards have two sound chips onboard with only one functional.

And, you didn't answer my question although you reposted my comment and posted a link to something (that I won't click on....)

Did you read that post carefully? There were several suggestions there.

JenniferSUMN, I have read the messages at that link and if you see at the last post one user gives info on how to have a system summary of my PC with the help of the software. The other info of that topic didn't helped because my PC is made from a computer company and it doesn't have any brand.

That's what I've did. That link is the txt file of the system summary of my PC.
Why you won't click at the link? I don't understand :-(

Yahoo won't allow me to email an attachment over 10MB. The file is 19+MB.

Below is the link. The file name is c-media 9737 9761.zip

You will need to register at the site. registration is free. The file is on the page I am linking.

edit

BTW, your motherboard appears to be a MSI (MicroStar International) model.
If you browse through their archives for boards with a socket 775 and the other info you linked to in your last link you should be able to track down the model number and get all the info on it.

I have downloaded the file, at the 94% of the installation again the message that this driver is not tested under the windows logo appeared and because I didn't had any other solution I decide to proceed with the installation. Then I've asked for a restart of the windows. I pressed Ok and later while the windows were loading, I heard the starting sound of the windows YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!

I can't thank you all enough for your involve and to try to help me with my issue and of course especialy OthHill. What do you want to send you from Netherlands?? (Don't say an airplane ticket, it's a little too much LOL)

Thank U, Thank U, Thank U guys, YOU ARE THE BEST!

Go to the link below and look at all the socket 478 motherboards that start with 4865.

I believe one of those boards is the one you have. Compare by other features. You can then download ALL the drivers and the manual.

http://www.motherboards.org/mobot/m...

Below their logo is a list for BIOS, Drivers, Manuals, Motherboards.

I think you have the 4865G
