Re: Problem with sound card driver?
Before a rebuild, I would try another reinstallation of Windows. There's only two different RealTek Audio drivers, the HD and ac 97 so installing either of those should work. If neither do, reinstall Windows once more and see if that resolves the issue. What version of windows are you installing?
Edit: If you're installing pirated versions of Windows then these can be problematic in nature anyway. If you're not, could chalk this up as a bad install.
Humans are the only creatures that won't live up to the their potential. Give everything your all. When you die, die on E.
So I ask you, what do you intend to do now?
