Right, let's start from scratch. Open your Device Manager, locate the audio card, and uninstall the driver. Leave Device Manager open.

You should be running Vista, but you also need to know if you are running Service Pack 1, as Vista and Vista SP1 need different drivers, so does the the 64bit.

The drivers can be found here:

Once you've downloaded the driver, unzip it and run the setup. If there is no setup.exe, then go back to Device Manager, click "Scan for hardware changes" and it should automatically find the driver.

I can not instal realtek audio driver it says install failed

Usually driver install problems are caused by the driver file itself being corrupt.  Try downloading a new driver from the manufacturers website.  most manufacturers have a downloads section or support section where you can find it.  
If you have the same problem then you have to find out if the card itself is working.  Easiest way is to install it in another computer and try updating driver.  If you get same results more than likely the audio car is failing, however; if it is onboard then you cant do that.  
Also you could try installing a different driver from the same provider and see if you have same problem of install failure.  You may find you have limited functions but *** works or you may find it works fine.  
hope this helops
