Just 2 weeks ago my audio driver started giving me problems- it freezes my computer upon start-up. I have an on-board Realtek AC'97 on an Abit IT7 Max2 motherboard. I can open the OS in safe-mode and the hardware manager tells me I have no conflicts. Uninstalling the AC'97drivers allows me to open the computer in regular mode. I have tried the most current and old version drivers. Sometimes I have been able to install the drivers and have my sound work- until I reboot. I have also tried re-delegating the IRQ's in the bios, but to no avail. I reset it all to "auto" again. I cannot adjust the chosen IRQ's in the device manager- I guess it's only auto in XP. There are 2 other items sharing the same IRQ. I didn't have any trouble for a long time until now. Can someone help? Please?
