    Hey guys! This is my first post and I hope I can get some help!
    A few days ago, I set up my desktop and installed a fresh copy of Windows XP Pro. Of course, I had to get all my drivers manually, and I did. Everything was all fine and dandy until I realised that I had no sound. so searching I went until I found the driver I needed: Realtek AC'97 Audio. So I restarted and figured I would have sound. That was not the case. So I went into Device Manager and found a black exclaimation mark in a yellow bubble on my sound driver. I right-clicked it and went to "Properties". In the text box it said: "This device cannot start. (Code 10)"! I cannot seem to fix this issue! I went to RealTek and downloaded them. I went to Asus but could not find the drivers for my model (I am not 100% certain but I think I have a Pundit-S)

    System Specs:

    Mainboard : Asus P4R8L
    Chipset : ATI 9100 IGP
    Processor : Intel Pentium 4 @ 3200MHz
    Physical Memory : 2048MB (2 x 1024 DDR-SDRAM )
    Video Card : RADEON 9100 IGP
    Hard Disk : Seagate ST380811AS (80GB)
    DVD-Rom Drive : ATAPI DVD D DH16D2P
    Monitor Type : ProView Technology - 17 inches
    Network Card : 3COM 3C920B-EMB-WNM Integrated Fast Ethernet Controller
    Operating System : Microsoft Windows XP Professional 5.01.2600 Service Pack 3 (32-bit)
    DirectX : Version 10.00
    Device Audio : ASUSTeK Computer IXP150 AC'97 Audio Controller

    If this isn't enough info, please tell me so I can add to it. If anyone can help it will be DEEPLY apprieciated!

    Go back into the properties window for that device, then click the "Details" tab, then select "Hardware Id".

    There should be a string that has VEN_####&DEV_#### as part of it.

    Advise what the numbers and letters are that follow VEN_ and DEV_ .

    It's possible the audio device is SoundMAX or Analog Devices and not Realtek.

    Well... I got 4 different strings, so I'll give you them all:

    PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_4341&SUBSYS_810D1043&REV_01
    PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_4341&SUBSYS_810D1043
    PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_4341&CC_040100
    PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_4341&CC_0401


    I'm not really sure if there is a reason for there being more than one, but if that's a problem, please let me know.

    From the PCI database site for those vendor and device codes:

    Chip Number: SB200

    Chip Description: AC'97 Audio Controller

    Notes: Usually equipped with AD1981 codec
