Conexant AC-97 Audio HELP, PLEASE!

Hello everyone,

I hope everbody's doing well. Please, I do really need your help to fix a problem with my Sound Card ''Conexant AC-97 Audio'' I have recently insalled Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit and it seems to be working fine, though this particular issue with the sound card drivers. I have tried a lot starting by the solutions suggested by users on this forum but never gotten to fix the problem.

Here are two photos I have taken from a screan scan which will show you exactly what's wrong, and I know that many people have the same issue ...

It looks like you need drivers for those device with yellow exclamation marks. Can you provide the PCI IDs for those? Hows how to get the info.

Driver selection for your Hardware devices.

Thank you very much guys for trying to help out, I appreciate it

I last thing I tried and it's seems working fine is this method I found at another website and I want to share with the others who might have the same issue and thank you once again

Download the "Conexant AC97 Audio Driver for Microsoft Windows Vista (64-bit)" from http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=US&swItem=ob-51288-1

installing it regularly didn't work but you can make a trick.

1. first, try to install it normally with the driver. it will probably fail but it will be extracted in C:\swsetup\SP35558 by default

2. open the .inf file and locate

[Conexant.NTamd64]
%*WDM_AMCAUD.DeviceDesc%=WDM_AMCAUD,PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_4370&SUBSYS_308B103C
%*WDM_AMCAUD.DeviceDesc%=WDM_AMCAUD_DF,PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_4370&SUBSYS_308E103C

3. add this line to it
%*WDM_AMCAUD.DeviceDesc%=WDM_AMCAUD,<x>

<x> can be found by going to the device manager, open the unrecognized audio device's property page, select "Details" tab, and select "Hardware Ids" from the Property combo. One of the listed strings should be <x>. it was the top one in my case.
In my case <x> was PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_266E&SUBSYS_3082103C&REV_03

so it eventually looked like:
[Conexant.NTamd64]
%*WDM_AMCAUD.DeviceDesc%=WDM_AMCAUD,PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_4370&SUBSYS_308B103C
%*WDM_AMCAUD.DeviceDesc%=WDM_AMCAUD_DF,PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_4370&SUBSYS_308E103C
%*WDM_AMCAUD.DeviceDesc%=WDM_AMCAUD,PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_266E&SUBSYS_3082103C&REV_03

4. now install the driver manually through device manager. It installed as "Conexant AC-Link Audio" which i find weird since it first was listed as "Conexant Realtec AC-97".
