I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop. I downgraded it from Vista to XP Pro. When I play my game (Archlord) It gives me a BSOD saying something about the pci.sys. Then I went into device manager and found 'Unknown Devices' Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus With an apostrophe next to it. I have a Sigmatel STAC9228X @ Intel 82802HBM ICH8M - High Definition Audio Controller [B-0] Installed. I suspect that it is that that's not functioning. I reinstalled all the drivers from Dell.com and its still there. What can I install to make that thing work?
