Ok so I've had this problem before but now it doesn't seem to want to be fixed.

Windows Update installed Realtek audio drivers, which effectively disabled my sound altogether. Great. So I went looking for a fix. Apparently that fix is to download the Realtek '97 drivers, and install them, after uninstalling my previous driver. So I do that, but during the setup for the driver windows says it cannot verify the author blah blah blah, what's new? The problem is, when I click install anyway, it pauses for a minute or so and prompts me again.. I went through this little runaround about six times before I gave up. Any ideas?

Run the exe as administrator and it could get through more likely.

Anyways. Go to motherboard/computer(if it's a factory-built box) manufacturer site and download latest audio drivers, not just any Realtek AC97 drivers some random person on teh intrawebs links to you. Then do the above.

I ran it as administrator, no go. Went to compaqs site, downloaded the original and updated drivers, neither would install, returned this error:
Error: C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Temp\pft6684.tmp\
3052: Uninitialized Variable or undefined function
If (OSLangDec=="1028" || OSLangDec=="2052" || OSLangDec=="3076") Then

That's all the info on the error. Ran them both as admin.

Ok well I fixed it. I couldn't honestly tell you how, but I did. Thanks for the help anyway ;-)
