    Have you gone into Control Panel>Sounds & check it out in there? I too have had an X on mine from time to time but usually just a reboot fixes it.

    1. Not sure which steps you followed to reinstalled the driver but you should
    > Open CtlPnl->Programs and Features. Look for the Realtek audio driver and uninstall it from there
    > Go to Realtek website and download/install the AC97 driver from there

    2. If still a problem try the MS Audio Fixit HERE
