I've been reading forums and trying everything for hours now... I hope you can help. I just reformatted and did a fresh install of XP Pro. My sound doesn't work now. I set my BIOS to onBoard sound (which is listed as AC'97 Audio in the Bios). My sound options in the Device Manager are Audio Codecs, Creative Game Port, Legacy Audio Drivers, Legacy Video Capture Devices, Media Control Devices, and Video Codecs. Sometimes, depending on the last trick I tried, Multimedia Audio Controller is flagged as a problem without any drivers. I though I had SoundMax on my mobo, but none of those drivers will install. I get the error message saying Driver not found, Reboot and try again. This is extremely frustrating to me. Let me kow what else you need to know to try and help, I'd appreciate that. Thank you!
