  1. Hi, I just formatted and now I'm having trouble getting my audio driver to work that i downloaded from
    It's the vinyl ac97 audio driver for vt8235 etc. My pc reboots at the end of installation, and detects the device on startup. This repeats until i disable the driver. I've tried uninstalling a couple of times. Does anyone know the problem maybe? :dead:

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Instead of downloading the drivers from the realtek site. Go to your mobo manufacturers website and download the correct sound drivers from there.

    I also suggest that before you do that, you uninstall your current sound drivers from your device manager, and reboot your system.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
