And the other message I get if I try to install the modern 2009 realtek drivers...(Just for more info, I did get this error with any driver I tried.)

Hi IcyLava,

could you please update your computer specs so that we can assist you further and they seem to be a bit incorrect, for example you say that you have a PC/Desktop but we can see in Device Manager that you have an entry called Battery.

Thanks!

Yes, you're right. I've fixed them so that they reflect the lappie's specs.

Well I had hoped it would have helped us here to better solve your issue but it seems that your laptop is older than 10 years resulting in that HP deletes everything related to the product

Yeah I was more thinking about receiving drivers and stuff like that.

For example usually you would only get the AC 97 drivers from HP. rather than going directly to Realtek.

Did some searching and found that in XP the laptop used something called "Conexant audio", have you checked if there would be something similar for W7?

Well...now that you say that I looked it up../there is *a* conexant driver for it. Which is weird because windows always thought it had a realtek ac 97...I have found entries for that too. The newest driver is 2003 for the conexant. I will try that anyway. Never know I guess. Is it actually possible Windows was wrong?

Nooe...it must inseed have realtek drivers. I'm not sure why both would appear. The installer displays none of the hardware I have (when it asks me just which one I have) just blank box there. Idk why this is so dofficult for it.

I really appreciate everyone trying to help me with this! I don't think anything is compatible with its audio drivers now, because I don't know, it just doesn't seem to work with anything. I have heard about external audio cards, would any of that help here? I don't know anything about that
