I've tried getting drivers from both the ACER website and Realtek
website to no avail. I've also updated the chipset drivers from nVidia
(6100 chipset), then attempted to reinstall the drivers, yet still am
unable to locate a sound device and hear any audio. Both my speakers
and my headset work and I have tried using them in both my front and
back audio ports.. again to no avail. :( Help please!

Hi. If it worked fine when on Vista, try to uninstall the existing audio driver and then download the latest available audio driver from acer for your notebook. I suspect that the native driver from XP is what is being used.
if that does not work, try to uninstall the audio driver again and try to download the Univeral Audio Architecture (UAA) from Microsoft by going to the following link: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/888111
From there, you will find the View and Request Hotfix link where you can get the hotfix for the UAA. After installing it, reboot the computer and test your audio again. Be sure to also open Sound Properties in the Control Panel and verify that the default playback device is selected correctly. Adjust the speaker settings as desired. It may alsp be a good idea to test the audio using external speakers or headphones to check if the stutter occurs only using the internal speakers.
Your machine does use the Realtek audio codecs. Try to download the version available on their website. You have two choices - a standard AC97 or the AC97 HD (you may want to try this one first) one of them should be compatible with your equipment.
NOTE: The drivers available from Realtek have a different version number with them but they are basically the generic drivers for AC97 devices.
Its a driver incompatibility issue. Many hardware components designed for Vista are incompatible with XP. This means that the Realtek audio driver may be the Vista version. Also, some hardware has of yet no XP drivers, so your audio components were designed for Vista only. While it may be possible to "force" the driver to work, it may involve a number of hacks to the Windows registry and other files.
This is normal, this is a driver loading for your realtek card. Sound I believe. I think what's happening is that it's not being done in the background as it normally would on perhaps an XP system. Also remember that vendor drivers and programs don't always work perfectly with Windows.
It's nothing to worry about, if your sound is good, then it's doing what it should.
I hope that gives you some ease of mind.
Try searching on google for KB888111. It's a microsoft software that is for the HD Audio bus that corrects a lot of problems. Run driver update and point to the software you downloaded for 888111 and then install the software for the audio.
is there any other way to solve the audio problem? after i install win xp sp3 in my acer aspire 5550,i get stuck in installing audio driver.i have download the driver from many website even in acer.com, but still cant solve it..please give me some idea..
