it started to install the ac'97 sound driver automatically with the found new hardware wizard

You should install your driver by executing the .exe file downloaded from the Internet. (no unzipping whatsoever).

Again, make sure all sound drivers are uninstalled prior to installing the new driver.

If you try to download it (and dont worry it wont actually download because there is a major problem)

As far as I know the Realtek website works properly, if that is what you are pointing at.

So, make sure the driver is uninstalled and delete all driver files you downloaded so far. Then go here and download & execute the downloaded file and install the driver.

Hopefully this will be the last file you`ll have to download.

Err.. go to Start >> Run >> write devmgmt.msc.

The Device Manager window will open. Check for any yellow exclamation (!) signs and post the name of the device mentioned, if any.

Also make sure that you have plugged in the speakers in the right jack.

Hope this helps.

There you go! You need an audio driver. Download & install ASTRA32 and launch it. Select System Summary on the left, scroll down to the Sound section on the right and post the data given in that section..

How do you mean "un normal place on my computer"?

Did you install the driver successfully? If yes, is the yellow exclamation in Device Manager still there?

OK, it seems that you haven`t installed the driver which is why you don`t have sound yet.

Since you have issues with unzipping the archive linked above, please click the link below and download & install the sound driver executable.

-CLICK HERE - Win XP Sound Driver-

Then restart the PC and check if the sound works. Also if you have issues with installing the driver file, please let me know.

I suppose that you see a message like the one linked below.

http://digital.ni.com/public.nsf/we...

- If so, click Continue anyway and the driver should install without any problem.. and yes, the driver is for XP. -

However, you can download the driver directly from the Realtek website, which is guaranteed to work with XP, even besides the warning if the OS, which can be bypassed by clicking Continue anyway.

Realtek website sound driver.

Just accept the terms by checking the checkbox on the website & select the Windows XP executable file (it`s sixth on the list).

And again, does the yellow exclamation sign in Device Manager persist??

there is a problem with the site when you tick the box and then press next it comes up with a page saying object moved here

so when i click on the word here it comes back up with the page i just came from!

PS I clicked continue the first time around and it just shutdown it also broke it and took me a long time to fix hence not being online for a while

Sorry about that. At this point you should check if the already installed sound drivers are removed before you go ahead with installing the drivers I gave you in response #12.

Go to Device Manager >> right click Multimedia Audio Controller >> click Properties >> Select the Driver tab on the device's Properties dialog box >> Click the Uninstall Driver button.

A new dialog box will pop up asking you to confirm the uninstall. Click OK to proceed.

After that, restart the PC, go to the website linked below, accept the terms by checking the checkbox on the website & select the Windows XP executable file (it`s sixth on the list).

If you are prompted again for Windows XP logo testing click Continue anyway, as I am sure that you`ll have no problem whatsoever with that driver.

Good luck.

I have a slight problem again


I restarted the computer and when i came back on again it started to install the ac'97 sound driver automatically with the found new hardware wizard unfortunately halfway through it asked me to either browse to find the required file or install the download disc containing the files neither of which i had so i went into the files you orginally gave me which i could not unzipp and managed to unzip them i then went back into the found new hardware wizard but the file it was looking for was not in any of the folders unfortunately i have forgotten the name of the file it was looking for! anyway i closed that down and then came back on to this post but if you try going on the link you gave me there is a problem! If you try to download it (and dont worry it wont actually download because there is a major problem) also as soon as i came back on it reinstalled the driver i uninstalled before i restarted the computer

luckily it downloads it now before shutting down but when I get to the end of the install wizard it asks me whether I want to restart or restart later I click restart later and it reinstalls the Multimedia audio device and Uninstalls the Ac'97 audio DRIVER I have just installed (in other words it doesn't save it) PLEASE HELP

PS The found new hardware comes up every time i turn on my computer now is there any way i can get rid of it because it really annoys me

At this point I suggest you to open a new thread in the drivers section so someone else can give you the correct driver for your PC. Post the model of the sound card there.
Sound Chip SiS7012 Audio Codec

Drivers section.

Also you can mark this thread as solved.
