Have partitioned the harddrive on my Vaio notebook (PCG-GRT30CP) and installed Windows XP-SP3 on this. I used OEM software from my other laptop (Lenovo 3000 series) to do the installation. I know, it's WRONG, but there is a very good reason for having to do this.
A few problems have followed, the main one being no sound. Have installed new drivers where indicated by 'Driver Detective', checked threads here at TSG and followed up on 1 of them by running 'MG Everest' diagnostics to find my motherboard (Sony <DMI>), have tried to find drivers for this but without success.
I have checked the BIOS, there is no information on the sound system in there.
I am now at a loss, I have a large amount of info from Everest scan that means very little to me. Can anybody help me through the next steps?
Many thanks.

Hi Jazz (or anyone else who might be able to help).
Are you able to offer any advice on the driver I might be missing based on the report from PC Wizard?
Many thanks,

Hi Jazz,
Many thanks for your reply. I have downloaded and run aida32 software, the multimedia report is attached.
As you suspected the audio device is SiS 7012, I will now follow the next link that you gave me to obtain the driver, install and see what happens!!!

Hi Jazz,
A follow up from my earlier message. Have tried to install the SiS 7012 audio driver but receive the error message "-536870397" (without the quotation marks). Is this of any assistance to you?
Grateful for any further advice you are able to provide.
