Hello, recently I decided to do a clean reinstall of Windows XP Professional SP3, and everything went smoothly until driver installations.
According to AIDA64, I have an "Analog Devices 1981B(L) @ Intel 82801GB ICH7 - AC'97 Audio Controller [A-1]". I tried various drivers, before going to the IBM website and downloading their SoundMAX Audio driver. Remembering that before I reinstalled, it said I had a SoundMAX device, I was ecstatic that I was finally going to be able to have audio on my PC again. I installed the drivers, restarted, and everything was working perfectly, until my computer started to restart without warning. This happened more than once, so I was forced to uninstall the driver. After doing so, my computer stopped randomly restarting.
Help would be greatly appreciated.
(Here is a link to the driver I was attempting to use.)
