    Sound was doing fine, not sure what killed it. Can't find original disk, so I need the drivers that will work with XP Professional

  • Anonymous Jan 24, 2008

    a little bit more info: first it ws showing that the Microsoft WDM Audio Compatibilty driver had a exclamation point, stating that a service that it needs was disabled. When I loaded the SoundMax from the Asus website then it was shwoing me new hardware found which was the AC'97 . When it tried to load the ac'97 I get the postcls.sys error and BSOD. Now I can't get back to that point to try the driver you posted but Thanks for the info.

    Yes i hav also the same problem can i hav a solution please do i need a driver.In my pc no sound is coming

  • raddad555 Feb 04, 2008

    Actually found that I did not need the Microsoft WDM once un-installed this and having the AC97 driver from their site installed my sound came back. Not sure if this will work for everyone, but apparently it handles the sound instead of the WDM. Had I paid close attention it said in the error message I was getting that this may be handled by another application.

Before installing the AC97 software drivers, open System than click the Hardware tab than click Device manager. Scroll down to Sound, video & game controllers. Do you see a yellow ! point? If so than your drivers do need to be reinstalled. I could send you to Asus's site but they are a bit out dated so go here for updated drivers. The first one listed under Description will do just fine.

When you open the sound, video & game controller find AC97 & uninstall by right clicking on AC97 & uninstall. Only the AC97, leave the rest alone. Restart the PC than install the new drivers that you saved to your hard drive.
Check driver installed by opening controll panel than open Sound & Audio Device icon. Under Audio tab Realtek AC97 should be listed than click the Voice tab & the same should be listed.
Test both Audio & Mic functions. If either fail your intergrated controller could be defective. Lets hope everything works fine.

    Just for the heck of it enter your bios and disable the on board sound. See if you can get back into windows without an error.

No sound to my home desktop computer asus pundit r P1-Ph1 with window xp. I tried realtake Ac 97 and sound max still no sound, but in my desktop sound icon is there after installation. in the device...


Perhaps it is a hardware issue. Either the speakers or the on-board audio may not be working...

However, in most cases, it is a driver problem. I did some research, and it does indeed take RealTek Ac 97 drivers, but there's a chance the driver is corrupt. I found the driver on CNET.com, originally a dell driver, but they work the same.

http://download.cnet.com/Audio-Realtek-ALC655-AC-97-AUDIO/3000-2110_4-168843.html

Give that a try and I hope it works for you. If it doesn't, try headphones or another set of speakers. If that doesn't work, you may need to look into finding a pci audio card.

Good Luck
