Re: Audio driver help.
What brand is your computer? HP, Dell, eMachines, Sony, etc.? Or maybe you built is yourself? If you bought it retail, usually if you go directly to the computer's website, they will have all the downloads you need including sound drivers for your particular model PC. Or you can just browse on your System Recovery CD and look for the AC'97 Audio drivers.
*Fact: Microsoft Window's Blue Screen of Death vs Computerforums.org's White Screen of Death. Which is worse?
