    fresh install, XP does not recognize C-Media AC97 audio device

    Hi alll...





    Systemax PC
    System Model SYX snc302eeh
    Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2 (build 2600)
    Enclosure Type: Desktop


    Processor a Main Circuit Board b
    2.00 gigahertz AMD Athlon 64
    128 kilobyte primary memory cache
    1024 kilobyte secondary memory cache
    Board: Gigabyte GA-K8VT800M Via K8T800/8237

    Good morning.
    Hard drive failure. replaced drive. Reinstalled XP Professional. OS refuses to recognize...C-Media AC 97 audio device...have been to Windows web-site...followed instructions and went to site of C-Media...and installed driver...find myself locked in a never ending install loop...I install driver...audio device window pops up...I install driver...window tells me to reboot...I do so...as soon as OS reboots...window opens telling asking me to run program to install driver...whether I do or not...I end up having to reboot for driver is no longer active or available to allow sound for audio device.
    I get error code trying to open Winamp which I use to test audio device...(Bad Direct Sound driver...error code 88780000a)...and I have tried all kinds of different ways and means to get this thing working. Any suggestions would be helpful please. I have been at this for two days.

    get your drivers here at the systemax site:

    No one has any right to force data on you
    and command you to believe it or else.
    If it is not true for you, it isn't true.
