Assuming you have XP Pro your driver for your AC97 onboard sound can be found here

Edit: When requesting help of this nature please supply more detail of your system spec's (my crystal ball is in the shop so I have to resort to guess work )

unzip it to c:unzipped (winzip default) and double click the .exe file. It will be a self extracting file, forget about start > run > etc

it doesnt have a button that says "open folder", and its impossible to use Windows Explorer, because the folder that it says the file was extracted to , is hidden.. i think.. all i know is, its not there

If you are unzipping it to Temp files the folder will be hidden for sure, if you unzip it to c:unzipped the folder shouldn't be hidden, if by some weird chance it is hidden go to control panel > folder options > view > scroll down and click the radar button that says "Show hidden files and folders"

EDIT: I have to go get ready for work, I'll be back in 10 minutes or so to see how you got on
