Question about Acer (54.AA806.001) Sound Card

Computer not picking up sound card

I changed from Vista to Windows XP Home Basic edition and now I have no sound. Seems the computer is not picking up the sound card (I don't know the name of it by the way). My computer is an Acer Aspire AM1200-E1520B.
I would very much appreciate any help I can get with this problem. I have tried to find drivers, but have not been successful. Even with the program, Driver Robot, it get's the file for me but it seems it's just files and not drivers, as I can't get anything to install from it.
Thank you in advance.

This is one of 2 or 3 problem... This is usually a driver issue. Either the wrong driver or driver not installed. Less likey is a bad port on the motherboard that the speakers plug in to. Another could be, if the computer came with Windows Vista, which I also do not like, the components could possibly be incompatible. Most likely, you are not finding the proper driver. If www.acerpanam.com is not helping you, you might want to either open the machine to check the brand of the sound card or take the computer back to the place of purchase if recently purchased. If the computer has another slot where the sound card could plug in, try that, just in case it's a bad slot on the motherboard.

According to the Acer support site your machine uses a Realtek chipset for the audio - you should be able to use the AC97 HD codecs available from their website.

Post your results or any errors you receive under this thread so I can follow up with you with necessary.

I want change vista to windows xp in my thoshiba satellite u 300-153


First, you'll need to either purchase a genuine copy of Windows XP (these are getting very difficult to find, because Microsoft has withdrawn this software from marketing; so, you'll need to find a small computer-store that may still have a copy on its shelves). Or, start with a "non-genuine" copy of Windows (and hope that it's not already virus-infected) and then when it is detected as being "non-genuine", then use your credit-card to purchase a "Windows Genuine Advantage Validation" kit, to convert your "bootleg" version into a "genuine" version.

Then, you'll have to be aware that Toshiba may _NOT_ have created device-drivers for your computer for Windows XP. It's possible that some of your components (wireless, video, sound, network) will _NOT_ work, due to the "missing" device-drivers.

You'll be much further ahead if you upgrade to Windows 7, which addresses many of the issues that were problematic in Windows Vista.

It will install the driver automatically for you, just download it from the link below and run the ".exe" file.
