Realtek is the audio driver in most cases. So, by uninstalling it, you have uninstalled the audio driver. You need to re-install it. Here is a link to download the driver. The download will begin automatically. Just click on run: You might also want to install the codecs for the realtek high definition audio from the link: If you wanna try something new, go for SRS Audio Sandbox. It is small and better.

I hav downloaded intel dg31pr audio driver for windows xp but while installing it appeard as "this driver version is older than the system one". please solve my problem...,,,

Well mahatab9, you have not told us if there is any audio driver installed on your computer or not. But the error message clearly stated that, you have an audio driver already installed for your motherboard model. So, if the driver is not properly working or you just want to upgrade it, you should use Intel Auto Driver Updater for best result. This will show if there is any updated version of your installed drivers are available or not. To do this, click on the following link to automatically identify and update your drivers and softwares.
Automatically Update your Driver
Now click on "Check Your System for Latest Updates" to start analyzing your computer. This will show whether your system requires an upgrade or not.
IMPORTANT: This utility is for Intel Motherboards only.
But still, if this utility doesn't show any upgrade to your audio driver, then you can manually download this driver as your motherboard INTEL DG31PR supports the Realtek HD Audio driver only for best response. If you have already installed any other audio driver than Realtek, please uninstall that and install this one. To download this, click on this following link:
Download latest Realtek HD Audio Driver
This installation will remove any previous version of Realtek and install the newest one automatically.
Hope this helps, Regards,

I Assume you have got Realtek Audio Driver.. First you have to Install Microsoft High Defnition Audio Patch (MSHDQFE) i.e., "kb888111xpsp2.exe" and this patch can be obtained by googling or downloading from Microsoft Site.. After this installation.. re-install your audio driver.. it will works.. sometimes virus may not allow to playback and disables your audio driver.. for this you re-start your computer in "Directory Services Restore Mode" and check whether sound is working or not..

Failure of realtek audio driver installation

I had the same problem while installing a GeForce 7050M-M motherboard w/AMD quad core processor. I kept getting the message "install Realtek HD Audio driver failure!!" message. After many hours of futility, and reading possible solutions on the internet, I got it working this way: First, go into your cmos setup and disable your onboard audio. Then after you boot up, go into 'control panel' and then 'add/remove programs' and remove any program associated with high definition audio. The Realtek programs that I had tried to install were in mine, so I deleted them. Then I clicked on 'start' and then 'search', and put this in the search window: 'hdaud' for high definition audio. Several files came up, and I deleted them, which put them all in the recycling bin. I didn't empty the bin, in case I screwed up something and had to restore the files later. I then rebooted, and being probably overcautious, let the computer come up and then went back into 'add/delete programs' to make sure there were no HD audio programs in there, and then double checked for any files by going back into 'search' and searching for 'hdaud' files like before. A file somehow had appeared there associated with Realtek, so I deleted it. Then I rebooted, and at reboot went into cmos setup and enabled my onboard audio. When the computer came up, the 'found new hardware' message popped up. When you see this DO NOT let the computer look for the driver. Hit 'cancel', and load your Realtek audio drivers from your setup disc or from whatever location you have them in. You may see the additional message about the driver not loading and your sound not working right, but ignore it, it's because you clicked on 'cancel'. Just let it finish it's install from your setup disc. When mine finished successfully for the first time now, and it prompted me to reboot because of the new drivers just installed, I actually got the 'shutdown' sound out my speakers-the first peep I heard out of them since I started this adventure early yesterday. When the computer came up, lo and behold I had sound. I was about ready to give up and go out and buy a sound card, but stubborness prevailed. So in short review:

1. Disable your onboard audio in CMOS
2. Go into 'add/remove programs' and delete any and all HD audio programs
3. Go into 'search' and type in 'hdaud' and delete those files that come up.
4. Reboot and double check 2 and 3 above.
5. Reboot and go into CMOS and enable your onboard audio.
7. Reboot and hopefully, enjoy the sound.
