Audio driver problem after upgrading OS from Windows 98 to xp

I upgraded OS from Windows 98 to xp recently. The new OS is fine, except that the audio system is not working. It says either the hardware is nto responding or no audio drivers. I cant seem to find the Audio driver path.
I tried adding hardware but to no use. The Audio was working on 98 OS.

You could also try:

Do you have Service Pak 2 installed, it has a lot of updated drivers.

Remove all audio devices in the control panel > System > Hardware tab > Device Manager. Then reboot and let XP redetect the audio hardware.

Another idea is to run Windows Update and see if there's an update to the driver.

Hope that helps...

If you could not get an audio driver it means one thing. The type of audio driver you have is no longer supported either by manufacturer, nor by Windows 7. there is only 1 solution to this problem, go to any computer store and get your self an audio card which will be comparable with your PC and which also can be supported by Windows 7. It does not have to be expancive, just as long as it affordable for you

I am recently upgrade win7 hp nx9110 audio output device not installed msg getting how to resolve


Ok this is kind of common with Windows 7. Although everyone thinks its new its really not just a fairly bug free OS. The HP models running Win7 actually are using the Vista or XP driver for audio. I just ran into that issue a few months ago when upgrading a Pavillian model.

Windows drivers


Windows Xp PC ran Logitek web cam perfectly on Skype until PC was upgraded with MS Media Player 11 now when Skype is selected the PC reboots! Skype recommended updating all drivers. Windows searched and this was done fine until the Realtek Audio driver was replaced when message Code 10 fault came up and there was no audio at all on the PC. Audio returned when I reloaded the Realtek Audio off of the original Gigabyte motherboard CD. Audio for all programs is fine except Skype where reboot problem no exists. Help would be appreciated.
