Have a 700mhz celeron, 128MB ram, new clean install of Win me. The driver for the sound card is an INtel 82801AA AC97 SigmaTel codec and It will install via windows update, but as soon as the computer is rebooted it loses its driver. It also returns to never dial a connection for the modem, when I keep putting it as always dial my default connection. So each time the computer is rebooted, you must change this setting also.

no irq prob(checked) and it is a new clean install of Windows ME. I think it must be downloading the driver from windows update and then it is not installing correctly, so that windows does not know where to look in the event of a reboot. Going to try udating the chipset drivers for it ( 4 in one miniport kinda thing) As for the slip of the modem settings-- no idea..

To set the AutoConnect value in the registry key to 1, follow these steps:
Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type regedit, and then press ENTER.
Locate and select the following registry key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\RemoteAccess\Profile\<ConnectionName>

In the right pane, double-click the AutoConnect value, and then reset the value from 0 to 1.



Not sure if that will help or not.
