No sound after upgrading

by Rycleve1 / November 19, 2012 1:50 PM PST

Hello.I am trying to upgrade a mx3560u for someone and after installing the Vista H P I can no longer here sound? I know the sound works I put in another hdd with xp and the sound worked. When I had the XP hdd installed it had the 8086 x 24c5 driver installed. Which I am pretty sure is AC'97. I tried installing the AC'97 for Vista off Cnet and a few other sites and it would get stuck 3/4 the way through and I would also get warning signs about an untrusted download or connection? When the Vista is installed all drives work except sound. The sound drive automatically installs Intel82801DB/DBM AC'97 driver but no sound.I troubleshoot and says all speakers and devices are working properly. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Try gateway's web site for drivers.

I'd install the motherboard chipset then the audio driver.

Light bulbs you shouldn't buy

There are plenty of dimmable LED light bulbs, but make sure you don't buy the ones that flicker when you dial them down.
