Be sure to reboot the system so the new drivers will load.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Ok guys. HP dv8305us. AMD Turion 64. 1.25GB memory. AC97 issue with WIndows 7 Ultimate X64. This is a reinstall. The first time I installed, my partition wasn't big enough. However, I was able to get sound working that time. It was a semi-fresh install overwriting and formatting my little 13GB partition. Now I have a 45GB partition and I can't for the life of me get the sound device to work. I either get code 10's or no audio device installed. Here's my device id's:


Somone in another thread mentioned something about grabbing an c97-61410599.exe file and extracting a couple of files from it. But didn't tell where to find the file. I've been beating myself up over this sound issue for almost 3 weeks now. I'm about to dual boot the POS HP GARBAGE with XP32 again just so I can use my Rosetta Stone software to keep learning my Portuguese so I won't be comepletely lost when I move down there next month. Please reply here and to my Thanks
