Realtek AC97 Drivers

I have an Optiplex GX280, XP with Realtek AC'97 audio card factory installed.

I recently UpGraded to IE8 after reboot found I lost all my sound drivers plus desktop tool bar sound Icon.

On Realtek web site I am "Unable" to get there download servers to download drivers. They donot answer EMail.

 

Any suggestions?

William

Reinstall this driver and restart the PC. Then, check the sound.

That driver is on our Dell FTP site, not RealTeks. In my previous post, click the hyperlinked word, "driver".

The only Service Pack Disk I am aware of is the Dell operating system CD?

Operating system service packs can be downloaded from Windows Update, which you can access from Windows Control Panel.

Chris, I found one, It's a Windows XP Service Pack 2 Disk to be used on Dell computers only.

I have download the required "Ksuser.dll" but I cannot get it installed. Any suggestion?

Re: Realtek AC97 Drivers

Chris, Interesting item:

I did a Start/Search Ksuser.dll and have 5 on my computer including

C:\windows\system32. Yet your referenced program stilll tells me to Install it for Service Pac 2 Disk.

Will continue to play with this or I'll live without sound.

Keep you informed.

Re: Realtek AC97 Drivers

Good Morning Chris,

Rceived this E this AM from PC Tek Realtek:

 

 

"Please tell me the model name of audio chip in your system .
You can try to read the model number of audio chip on your motherboard .
The model number starts with "ALC" and followed by a number.(e.g. ALC 650)
If you can not find it , please try to contact your computer manufacturer or vender to get it ."

Any way to check other then open the Box?

William
