realtek installation problems

Specs: Windows XP
how to reinstall realtek it so I have audio again? none of the sites seem to offer that..only updates. why won't you let me post? it's specific, it's not just asking for 'please help.; geez,.....maybe the question isn't long enough, so I"m emailing more. i mistakenly uninstalled the device that gives me audio sound, realtek and now i have no sound. i think that's pretty specific.

Did you try the RealTek site?

Look here, top row:
WinXP 32/64 and Win2K Auto installation Program

yes, and I got a zip file downloaded and a couple of times a 'driver detective' but no actual realtek...it's been quite confusing. Maybe I just don't understand...it says I have a 30 day free trial then have to buy it, but I still can't figure out how to actually get the software that gives me audio. !!!

Try this:

Download AIDA 32 here:
http://www.5star-shareware.com/Wind...

it will tell you the exact sound card model # you have

then go to Drivers Guide here:
http://www.driverguide.com/

or

to Realtek to download the correct drivers.


Then Right click on
My Computer
Properties
Hardware
Device Manager
Sound, Video

find the Realtek sound card,
Right click
Update driver

Let it try to install automatically
if that does not work, then
click Install From a list or specific location.

Enter the location where you downloaded the drivers from RealTek.

oh! I installed the AIDA, and it gives me different icons..I then went to 'multimedia' but I don't see a sound card. I see windows audio and pci/pnp audio..but don't see any sound card. I'm just so lost! I found 'Intel 82801EB1CH5 AC-97' Is that it? I then tried your next place, but that didn't work...
I have a computer guy that helps me remotely, but he's just not available. Do you do that?

Your question is NOT specific. You don't mention the make/model of your computer or make/model of your motherboard or make/model of your sound card (or integrated graphics). There are dozen of models of ReakTek sound chips, if that is in fact what you have. And if it's HD sound, it won't work properly without either SP3 or the Microsfot UAA HD audio patch.

You also never said if the sound ever worked & if it did, what happened to cause it not to work. And don't use dum@ss programs like driver detetcive.
