I just installed Windows XP Professional on my laptop (Gateway MX8734) and my sound card (SigmaTel High Definition Audio CODEC) is not working.

In device manager, it has a yellow error by it, and the error is "This Device Failed to Start". I've tried multiple drivers from the Gateway Site. I'm not sure which ones though. In the CABS folder of the root drive, these are the drivers:
"D00478-001-003"
"D00491-001-001"
Both of those are SigmaTel drivers. I've tried a Dell Insiprion drivers. What else could I do? Help me please!

Have you checked your BIOS to assure yourself that the on-board audio card is enabled?

This is a link I found at Gateway http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers...p;uid=280562081

See if you can find the correct driver I realize the driver above says windows Vista, but the site really wants your serial number rather than the model number.

I had Ubuntu before Windows so I know it is not that. It was working fully on ubuntu. I fixed this last time, but don't remember how >_< Guess I'll just continue downloading drivers from their site haha. Unless anyone knows the EXACT driver I need.

SOLUTION FOUND:
I was downloading random ones from the Gateway Site. Here is the one that actually worked:
