Try putting the driver setup file in a folder at the root of the drive.

For example, create a folder C:\driver and run the setup from there. I can't really see what is happening in that photo. Did you open the command window or did the program do that?

Did you get the chipset drivers installed?

-------------------------------

I had another thought. I bet that is one of those old drivers that has to be installed to a floppy and you don't have one, do you? That is why no drive is listed in the drive path.

OK. I downloaded that file and it is an InstallShield installer. Have you had any luck yet?

If not, you can extract the files from within the installer and install the sound driver manually.

ok.. tried the c:\driver thing and that didn't work.
its a laptop but i do have a floppy.
i can try that. all i have to do is move the program to a floppy and install it?
i did try that if thats what you meant by putting it on the floppy. that didn't work.
all i did was drag and drop the file on to the floppy. hope thats what you meant.
also i am not quite sure how i would extract the files and install them manually.

I think your best bet would be to download and install UniExtract. Right-click the driver file and extract all the files to a folder. You can use the default isxunpack option.

Inside the folder, you will see 2 setup files. You can try both of those, the install.bat file, or, you can right-click your sound device in Device Manager and choose to update the driver. Make all the manual choices and when you get to the 'Have Disk" option, direct it to the inf file in the folder where you extracted the files.

If the device is not in the Device Manager to right-click, then run the new hardware wizard, make the manual choices, and direct it to your extracted file folder again.
