    Sorry, it posted my search as the topic.  XP Pro loaded on machine previously.  Reloaded OS, all drivers loaded with no problem.  It's a Realtek AC'97 Driver that we have downloaded from multiple sources.  When we install it, it just turns off the PC.  In the Device Manager, it shows up as Multimedia Audio Controller.  Ran all windows updates, same problem.

1 Answer

The sound card only loads at startup once in a great while for my dell latitude model PP01L

It sounds as if your audio card has died. Start over again, do the following:
1) Turn the computer off
2) Remove the audio card
3) Restart and uninstall the drivers
4) Turn the computer off
5) Install the audio card
6) Restart and let Windows install a driver or install the driver yourself by going to the cards web site and downloading.
7) Run Windows or MS Update to confirm that the most up to date driver is installed.
8) Restart the computer

If after doing the following and the card still does not load at start up very time, the card has died. Sometimes a malware program running at startup can cause these problems so make sure that your machine is clean before doing anything.
