    Go to http://support.creative.com/downloads/welcome.aspx?nDriverType=1#type_1 check that's the correct sound card you have and download the bottom driver (if you click on show details it states it works with windows xp).
    Turn on-board audio off in the bios, disconnect from the internet, uninstall all sound drivers and reboot.
    Install the driver you downloaded and reboot.

    That should do it.

    Hi Guys,

    Just my 2 cents here. The hardware must be detected for the driver to install correctly. Even though the drivers are not installed, the sound card should appear at least as "unknown device" in device manager whether or not it is an onboard or add-in card. if it's onboard that you are trying to use, reset BIOS, double check if the onboard audio is enabled just like what you did and see if it will be recognized on device manager. IF still not, you may want to update your BIOS. you can also try a USB sound card if you have one just for the sake of isolating the problem.

    Welcome. As long as your PCI card will be detected then driver installation won't be a big problem. Good luck...

    Ok..thx for the instructions....but there is a problem,,,I am stuck at steps 17 : ''If the driver for the hardware has not been tested for Windows XP then you will get a message 'The driver is not digitally signed' - advising that the software has not passed Windows logo testing for Windows XP. If you wish to continue with the install, click on Next.'' and 18 :''You should now have the exact device you want to install displayed on the screen (or a small selection of similar devices. If so, choose the appropriate device). Click Next.'' I don't get any of this...I think I'mma quit the sound card...anyone got a solution to help me to make my Alc 658-C Realtek audio to work??..note it isn't shown in the device manager :D

    I've been thinking about this and Lucky09 is right, the sound card should show up in Device Manager somewhere.

    I suggest you take the sound card out and re-enable the Realtek onboard sound in the Bios then see what shows in Device Manager.
