I also have a Gateway Model GT5694 Desktop computer. When I installed Service Pack 2, my sound no longer works. There is no errors in Device Manager. I currently have a trouble ticket open with Gateway to find out what to do. Has anyone else come across this problem after installing Service Pack 2 for Vista and what did you do to get your sound working again?

In control panel go to sound and audio devices. in this you can test all the audio hardware and mic also.
under voice tab there is also an option for test hardware.

you said that you cannot use the mic in skype or google talk. i think that you didn't configure the mic properties in those software.
just go to start->all programs->accessories->entertainment->sound recording. just record ur voice using mic. if it works then the problem is with the configuration of the software skype and gtalk
hope this helps.

    The microphone bar animates only when it is working.
    to check the play back bar play any song and then see that the bar is animating.
    if it animates then the problem is with your mic or else the problem is with sound drivers.

I am getting the error that there is no sound device on my computer, but i have the Intel Audio device 82801 intalled on my Pavilion. How can this error be fixed?

You don't mention which pavilion you have, nor your operating system, both of which would help to narrow down the problem, but have a look at this search result list from the HP support site, which will have the most detailed information available for your system. (click here). or go here, enter your pavilion #, then search solutions for "sound problem"
Otherwise, there is a sound troubleshooter available for xp or vista at the MS help & how to. site that will help you determine the exact problem.
Usually this error can be sorted out by going to the device manager and checking the condition of the sound device, then updating or rolling back the device drivers for your sound card (or whatever hardware device is not working properly). Sometimes you have to uninstall and reinstall the device, in which case you'll need to have the drivers cd that came with the system, or download the drivers from HP. In either case, here is a link to an excellent tutorial for updating windows drivers.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Intel r 82801 aA ac97 audio controller is not installing i needs driver pl help

You should go to the audio troubleshooting page on Intel's support site. Most likely you need not only the audio driver itself but the Microsoft UAA driver installed prior to the actual sound driver.

Run the wizard and see what it says about your device. Post your results under this thread for follow up purposes.

Driver sound cards

You should be able to use the generic AC97 drivers available from Realtek. If the linked driver doesn't do the trick download the HD AC97 drivers and give those a try.

Post your results back here, especially if you are still in need of assistance or if you run into errors during the install.

Sound card

It’s actually the simple AC97 audio.
Choose your OS and then look for the AC97 audio drivers.
You can also allow windows update to search (device manager, update driver and allow windows updates to search).
