I have helped many people getting the correct driver by going to PCIdatabase.com with the Vendor and Device ID. It isn't perfect but it works. Sometimes doing a direct install of XP SP3 results in no sound and a Microoft UAA patch needs to be installed but I am glad you were able to resolve your problem with a new card.

O-boy, I wonder if you can help me with this?  I would love to get my sound back on my Acer!  I googled up your suggestion, I will take a look at it when I got my acer on hand: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/888111

 

If you would like to help me out I will start another thread, or mayb dig up my old one?

 

My drivers seem to be the right ones, but still don't work.  The Acer I got used seems to have low hours on it, so I am still hopefull that an answer will appear for me.

Hello pcpunk,

 

Follow the steps here. I would first uninstall any sound drive you have. You need to change a setting using regedit but after downloading and installing the UUA patch change the settings back. Then reinstall your sound driver.

In the future...please start your own topic, rather than tagging your issues onto a topic initiated by another member.

 

Everyone reading topics...will likely appreciate that courtesy.

You are right hamluis, thanks for starting this thread for me! I am really stoked about this.   

 

And, for JohnC_21's help.  I hope I can follow these directions.  Don't have this pc with me tonight so will do this in the next couple of days.  I will read up on it tonight though to prepare!

If it doesn't work boot a Puppy linux disk and try playing a couple of MP3's. If Puppy doesn't give you sound then I would think it's a hardware issue, For an old XP computer I would use Pupppy 5.2.8 which should pick up older hardware.

I don't work in linux, I already tried, forgot about that.

I guess it would not hurt to try using the UAA patch. Nothing to lose at this point.
