If you look at my other posts you will see that I went through quite the crap storm with some serious infections. I managed to get it cleaned up by re-installing XP without the OEM disc, but I'm having an issue with my audio not working.

I've managed to get mostly everything back up running and or installed, except my audio. My mobo is an Intel desktop D915GRO, and of coarse I can't find squat on Intel's site in regards to drivers. My mobo is on-board audio and of the Pentium 4 version. I could provide more information about it if asked.

Anybody have some ideas of how I can get the audio going again?

Thanks, Robert

The D915GRO looks like a manufacturer (Sony) specific board.
Have you tried visiting the Sony website for drivers?

Choose/Type/Detect model number > Type of driver (Audio) > Operating System (XP).

You are spot on Reviver, my system is a Sony VAIO model. Goes to show you, don't trust visiting the manufacturer that is listed on the mobo, you should go to the seller. :thumbsup:

I'll visit the site you mentioned and let you know.

Thanks for your help!!

A big THANK YOU goes out to Reviver for his help.:thumbsup: I've already visited the Sony site, found the driver, downloaded, installed, re-booted and the audio is back up and going.

I appreciate it!!!
