I downloaded and installed Windows XP gamer edition because I wanted better performance out of my games. I have installed the graphics drivers and they seem to be working, but I can't get the sound to work. My motherboard is an ASUS M2V-MX ad has a Realtek HD audio device. I don't have the installation disk, but I've downloaded driver after driver from the sites that have the Realtek HD audio drivers, but none of them work. I could buy a soundcard, but what's the point when my computer already has on board sound. What do I need to do to get it to work?

No such thing as "Windows XP Gamer Edition", as far as Microsoft is concerned :thumbsup:.

A direct link doesn't work, you'll have to fill out the search windows

Here's a link to the direct download from Asus: java script:downloadfile(this,'M2V-MX','misc/audio/RealtekALC883_Audio_V51005345.zip','1','24','7','2','RealtekALC883_Audio_V51005345.zip')

XP sound devices often rely on the KB888111 update. It's included in most audio drivers, but not all.
Install the driver listed above. If the KB888111 update isn't present, the Device Manager will list your audio device as working (but it won't) - and there'll be another Hi-Definition device that's listed as unknown.

If this is the case, post back and we'll work from there.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

I downloaded and installed the audio driver (RealtekALC883_Audio_V51005345.zip) and guess what ... still no sound, I'm thinking of abandoning trying to get the motherboards own sound working and using a separate sound card instead.
