I HAVE JUST INSTALLED XP-SP2. BUT I HAVE LOST MY MOTHERBOARD S/W. NOW,HOW COULD I INSTALL MY REALTEK SOUND MANAGER??? I NEED IMMEDIATE HELP. PLZ.


First download Realtek* ALC Audio Driver .

How to Install
1. Download this file to a folder on your PC.
2. Double-click the filename to launch the installation
IMPORTANT: Audio drivers may fail to install in Windows* XP 64-Bit Edition. Symptoms may include error messages, such as "Error in installation" or "Unknown error". Microsoft's Update for Windows XP x64 Edition (KB901105) fixes this issue. After installing this update, the audio drivers for Windows XP 64-Bit Edition will successfully install.

Downgraded from Windows Vista Home to Windows XP, no sound.


Go Here courtesy of Acer Support:

http://us.acer.com/acer/service.do?LanguageISOCtxParam=en&miu10einu24.current.attN2B2F2EEF=3750&sp=page15e&ctx2.c2att1=25&miu10ekcond13.attN2B2F2EEF=3750&CountryISOCtxParam=US&ctx1g.c2att92=453&ctx1.att21k=1&CRC=2054404012

Then Choose Desktop, Aspire, M1100.

From this point choose Windows XP Home Edition. There will be two audio drivers. One says Realtek and the other says Foxconn.

Choose to download Realtek and save the file to the desktop if you can. Then after its done downloading, you can double-click on the file and install it and see if windows picks up on it.

If for some reason it doesn't, then download the foxconn and install that one. I remember that most of the Aspire's had a realtek sound driver chipset.

It should take to one of them regardless.

NO SOUNDS...


Here is a link to the Windows Xp audio drivers to try for your motherboard/audio:

http://www.opendrivers.com/driver/258452/powerspec-v201-realtek-audio-sound-driver-5.10.0.5288-windows-xp-free-download.html

You need to click the link on this webpage near bottom to go to download. Let me know if this does the trick. It definitely sounds like an XP issue.

Realtek AC'97 Driver Problems


Well,
This is the last piece of solution I can give you, in case you already knew it, please ignore.

Your motherboard has a 6-channel non-HD audio, consequently you might have probably downloaded drivers meant for 2 or 4 channel or HD ones.

The appropriate driver for your motherboard is
Realtek ALC650
you can download it here:
http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/NETWORK-CARD/REALTEK/ALC650-v349-02092003-Win-98-ME-2k-XP.shtml
Since it is just 6MB , I suggest you give it a try as a last option.
Hope it help !
