  1. Are you sure that is the driver you need? It may not be installing because it can't find the hardware. http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f10/solved-cant-finish-installing-realtek-ac97-pc-restarts-546265.html
    Where did you download the drive from? Have you checked the computer manufacturer's site for audio device downloads?

  3. u shud be sure about the sound chip on ur motherboard, loading realtek ac97 driver on sigmatel or soundmax chips can cause syatem restart, try locating the soung chip on the motherboard , bottom left corner, and download that model from net, or best way is to locate ur exact motherboard model on net and downloading sound driver
