You should not...download system files from the Internet.  If it's not a system file but a driver...then you need to download it from the manufacturer of your system or the component provider.


From what I see...file belongs to NTI, so I (again) have no understanding why it would be a cross-platform problem since it would entail an installed program.

how are you trying to run Ubuntu when you get the error message? Ubuntu shouldn't need a windows file.




is that a bird?  a plane? nooo it's the flying blueberry!

Sounds like a hardware issue to me, because if it were a software one, the new OS (Ubuntu) would load the driver & sound would be up & running. Ubuntu or any other Linux based OS is totally independent of Windows, those OS's finds & installs the needed drivers for your system to run.


If you feel comfortable in doing so, you could open the computer & make sure that wires/plugs are intact.


Here is the page where your drivers are (you may need to select your model again). Audio is the 1st driver listed & for XP, should have everything you need, for that OS.




I second hamluis, it's bad practice to download files from the Internet, as who knows what's bundled in them? As in malware/other infectious code that can damage not only your computer's OS, but also monitor your activities & potentially steal your identity. Most OEM's carry at least the original drivers on their home site for years after the computer is shipped.



Performing full disc images weekly and keeping important data off of the 'C' drive as generated can be the best defence against Malware/Ransomware attacks, as well as a wide range of other issues.
