You also will find all of the drivers on the drivers disk that came with the computer.

Under 'Sound, video and game controllers' there is 'Audio Codecs', 'Legacy Audio Drivers', 'Legacy Video Capture Devices', 'Media Control Devices' and 'Video Codecs'.

Under 'Other devices' there is 'Multimedia Audio Controller' for which I cannot find a driver and it has a yellow ? and as an icon rather than the speaker.


Using PC Wizard I found: Chipset : R200 AGP Bridge [Mobility Radeon 7000 IGP]

Hopefully this will help you to help me :)

That doesn't help with the sound. Look under Multimedia and see what it says about a sound device.

Is it the right size (22.19 or so)?

And the name:

001058001_a60xp-realtekac_97audiodriver.exe

I don't know. Try right-clicking the link and using "Save Target As...". That is more reliable. I can't imagine what happened.
