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

    Hi alll...

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

    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 device window pops up...I install driver...window tells me to reboot...I do 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telling asking me to run program to install driver...whether I do or not...I end up having to reboot for driver is no longer active or available to allow sound for audio device.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.
