Memory Controller : 82GM965

For some reason my Sound Drivers do not work but all other things work properly.

  1. what motherboard are you using? the chipset might have nothing to do with the audio. most motherboards have a separate audio chipset.

    check under Other Devices in the Device Manager and see if there is hardware that is missing drivers.

    judging by the age of the chipset, you could try the Realtek audio drivers for AC97.
  2. After my Intel original mother board malfunctioned, I have recently purchased a Intel chip set base Chinese motherboard since i had 4 GB DDR2 RAM already and a Core 2 Due 2.93 processor.

    Now in my device drivers, its only showing one option for Audio driver, as i have mentioned above.

    I am not able to find a suitable driver that would solve my issue.
  3. Also, I am not able to find "Realtek audio drivers for AC97" that supports Windows 8 ?
  4. there should be a model number on the motherboard.

    is anything listed under Other Devices?
  5. I checked the motherboard version using CPU-Z util, as follows:

    Manufacturer: LORD ELECTRONICS CO. LTD.
    Model : GM965 Series
    Chipset : Intel GM 965 Rev : C0
    Southbridge : Intel 82801GHM (ICH7-M/U) Rev : B0

    Brand : Phoenix Technologies, LTD
    Version : 6.00 PG
    Date : 04/22/2013

    Will this info help to solve my audio driver problem ?

    BIOS ID: 04/22/2013-Crestline-6A79n009C-00

    Please help. I desperately need my Audio drivers to work.

  8. If the system is using Realtek AC97 audio, there are no drivers for it for Windows 8.

    If you can, go to device manager and right click on the audio, go to Properties and then the Details Tab. In the dropdown, select Hardware IDs and copy and paste the first line that starts with PCI\VEN here and I will see what audio it is.
