C-Media AC97 Audio Device Sound card

I have a HP laptop that I put XP Home O/S on, the sound card drivers are there but I'm getting a "Device will not start Code 10" error message. What is the "code 10" error and how can I fix it?

Are you sure its C-media AC'97? Realtek also has 'AC97 drivers! code 10 means that, as you know, the device cannot start...drivers are incompatible with OS
go www.testmyhardware.com and dnload the free app..it will poll your system and tell you what kind of sound card it is

SOURCE: No audio device ....on my xp C-media ac97 audio

It usually means that you don't have exact driver installed. But sometimes it's a problem with a Plug&Play Enumerator. I solved this problem several times. First try to install exact driver for your device from cd or website of your motherboard. If after installation of a new driver you have the same issue you may try this:
1. Chek if PnP SW Enumerator is installed on your machine (Device Manager / System devices) - should be listed there!
2. If it is not there then we will probably solve it!
3. Locate "machine.inf" on your OS, copy it somewhere and modify it (find "ExcludeFromSelect=*" and remove the line or simply exclude it from processing by adding a ";" at the beginning)
4. Check the "machine.inf" file for location where SWENUM should be located (mine was reading: SWENUM.CoInstallers.CopyFiles = 11 ; %windir%\System32)
5. Find "swenum.sys" file on your XP installation CD (mine was in DRIVER.CAB) and copy it to the proper location (I am not sure if it is necessary but worked for me)
6. Go to Control Panel /Ad HW and follow the wizard towards manual selection of device to be added
7. Select Add System device
8. Select Have disk
9. Navigate to changed machine.inf
10. from the list select standard devices (in the left list) and "Plug and Play Software Enumerator" in the right list
11. Finish the installation
If it stil does not work reinstall the audio adapters' drivers. It should work now.
And also if you have any Linux liveCd you can boot from it . Linux loads it's sound drivers and after when you boot Windows it usually solves your sound problem ( I resolved this with Mandriva One Live CD).
Good luck!

If your using a card take it out until you have XP installed.
Go into your bios and disable all your audio settings until you have XP installed.
Check and see if your audio is even compatible with XP.
Disconnect the any external devices that are connected to the audio input until XP is installed.

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.
