I have no idea which audio driver to install, I thought I did but none of them have worked so far.

I downloaded Everest, and it says under "Multimedia"

"Field Value
Audio Adapter Intel 82801FBM ICH6-M - AC'97 Audio Controller [B-1]"

I have NO idea what to install for this....the site doesn't seem to have the drivers.

Hi Again,

Try this one: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss...ocid=MIGR-58599

Also I notice that you have SP2 installed I would like to tell you that the latest service pack is number 3, when we find the correct audio driver I advise you to install SP3. :thumbsup:

The AC'97 Audio Controller is a native audio driver for that system. Go to Start> right click on My Computer> Manage> Device manager. Scroll down to Sound, Video and Game Controllers and click on the + just to the left of it to expand the tree. Is there a yellow exclamation mark or question mark next to Realtek AC'97 Audio? If there is, right click on it and click on Properties, Driver, and uninstall the driver. These are native drivers that can become corrupted, once you have uninstalled them restart the computer and the installation wizard will search for the appropriate native drivers and install them.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

@computerxpds

Thank you, however, I installed 1ya210ww.exe and restarted, yet it still seems not to be working.

The Windows Audio service is started, and if I restart it, nothing is different.

If I go to the Volume Control, it says no active mixers are available. D:


@dc3

There are no yellow exclamation marks or questions marks under there, there isn't even a "Realtek AC'97 Audio" there.

This is what it looks like:

Sound, video, and game controllers
-Audio Codecs
-Legacy Audio Drivers
-Legacy Video Capture Devices
-Media Control Devices
-Video Codecs

If I right click and "update drivers" on any of them, then go for the "automatic" option, the Hardware Update Wizard "Cannot Continue"

If you provided the correct specs for that system...the drivers linked to Computerxpds are the same ones I found for that system. There's only 1 possibilitiy for XP for that system.

IBM ThinkPad T43p

Your audio controller may not be reflected in Device Manager (as such) until drivers are properly installed for that function.

What do you mean by "until drivers are properly installed for that function" ? I installed the drivers that Computerxpds linked me to and restarted my computer, the audio is still not working.

And yes, I have an IBM ThinkPad T43p.

I finally got it! Using dc3's instructions. Well, kind of. I followed them up the point of windows searching for the drivers for me, because for some reason Windows "Cannot Continue" the hardware installation. What I did was select the "let me select the driver" and selected the "Sound, video, and game controllers" option, and from there Windows gave me the option to choose the Intel Driver that I needed. :thumbsup:

Thanks to everyone who helped me! I now have sound. <3

FWIW: Driver downloads often come in a package containing the respective drivers for various operating systems. In such cases, unless the user denies the XP auto search and then manually guides XP to the specific XP driver package...XP will not find the correct driver.

For this reason, I download the drivers...open the package to see the contents...and then move the XP drivers out of the folder containing the rest...and then browse directly to the XP driver folder or specific driver I need.
