C-Media AC97 Audio Device Driver
Can anyone point me to were I can locate the C-Media AC97 Audio Device Driver for a Packard Bell P.C.
I just reinstalled XP on this PC and I could not get any sound, so I looked in Device Manager and found that there were several drivers missing.
I managed to install them, however I can not locate the above driver?
I have also noticed that there is no sound mixer when I try to play any audio media, so it looks as though I need the drivers for my sound card.
Done various Google searches which have thrown nothing up that can help.

Using Belaric Advisor I have found the following info that might help:

Operating System
Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3 (build 2600)
Packard Bell NEC P842010401
System Serial Number: 035013020301
Bus Clock: 100 megahertz
BIOS: American Megatrends Inc. 1.0y 01/31/2004
C-Media AC97 Audio Device Driver

Many Thanks in advance for any help/suggestions.

Hi Pappy
Thanks for the link, I was going round in circles.
I have downloaded the HWVendorDetection.exe and will run it tomorrow (Getting too late and don't want shouted at) just to make sure I download the correct drivers for my system.

Thanks Again
