ok so I hope this is the right forum to post this topic in. If not, I apologize. Anyway I had to recently dump my system and start over with a clean slate. I got everything re-installed. I'm running Windows XP Home Edition. However my speakers are not working and I'm guessing its because I need to install the drivers for the audio hardware in my computer. It is the factory hardware. and every time I try installing the drivers for it, I get an ikernel.exe error. I've looked everywhere online for help and I've tried almost everything to fix it, but I'm still getting the same error. Its saying I'm missing the ikernel.exe file and it cannot be found. Is there some way I can download the ikernel.exe file online? or what else can I do? thank you.
