    specs ?

    I have
    an HP pavilion m7674n
    XP media center .
    the discs are : ms XP media center edition 2005 with update rollup 2 ( 2 discs )
    and a 3rd disc called : HP media center PC supplemental recovery disc


    the sound chip was Realtek ... now it literally doesn seem to exist . its not a card per se so i assume its on the mb ?

    I have DLd the driver form the realtek page and have tried to DL something callesd : microsoft universal audio architecture high definition audio busdriver and so far nothing .

    do you need any other specs ?
  3. Hi :)

    Get the sound driver from HP SUPPORT ...NOT from Realtek...

    All the best Brett :)

    OK in the download process I get this error from the HP drivers page for my specific PC :

    Your system must have the microsoft universal audio architecture high definition audio bus driver before you can install the Realtek high definition audio drivers .......


    however I am unable to DL those ms drivers


    EDIT -- ok i see it in a folder on my drive called : SWSetup ... and am lost .. now what ?
