I have a system that was designed for Vista but am running XP on it. So, I have to install the chipset drivers manually to get XP to recognise my hardware.

Last time I installed XP was the first time I did it and I had a lot of help from this forum. I went through some trial and error but thought I had worked out which steps worked, so I could duplicate it for this re-install of XP.

However, this time I seem to have missed the Audio Device driver. When I look in Device Manager, I have a yellow question mark against:

Audio Deivice on High Definition Audio Bus

VEN 10EC
DEV 0888

Looked it up on www.pcidatabase.com and come up with:

0x0888 Realtek Azak´lia chipset 0x10EC Realtek Semiconductor

So I had a look at the Realtek site (www.realtek.com.tw) but can't find the driver. Also did a google with no luck.

Now, last time I installed XP I am sure I did not have to hunt for this driver. So, it must be possible to get it somewhere else, possibly where I got the Intel series 3 chipset drivers from. I had a bit of a poke around there but can't see anything related to sound.

I have run the INFINST application from that site (well I had the file I downloaded last time which worked so used that) and that is all.

The computer is running fine apart from sound and to be honest I do keep the speakers on mute most of the time, but now and then there is something I want sound for (video tutorial etc).

Sorry for the longwinded post, thanks for reading and thanks in advance for your help.

I think I found the right driver. Here's how I found it.

From the product specifications for your system: Product Specs

Sound/Audio
Integrated High Definition audio

* Realtek ALC 888S chipset
* Supports up to 7.1 audio channels

Searched for the 888s chipset here - http://www.realtek.com.tw
Found this - High Definition Audio Codecs
