    Sound Drivers Crashing The System

    Every time I install the RealTek AC97 sound drivers, the system blue screens. According to the manufacturer's website, these are the right drivers.

    Well thats pretty generic. If it is onboard sound try going to the motherboard mfgs site and downloading them from there.

    windows update from may 14th i believe. It was a user32.dll issue that "fixed" it but made it load into the memory space the drivers were trying to use. That caused me a headache for about an hour.

    P.S. I'm pretty sure, I've been jumping over forest fires to blow out matches lately so the date might be a bit off.

    Hi,

    1. What message does the blue screen give you?
    2. Anything in the logs about it?

    If it is a brand name machine like Dell, try getting the drivers from their site.

    Also try downloading the drivers again if you haven't done that already........could be a corrupt download issue?

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
