Audio drivers needed

  bob. 23:34 PM 17 Dec 11

Anyone know where I can get the audio drivers for a Packard Bell I-media 1208 running XP home.

The drivers on the install disk do not work and a visit to the PB site brings up nothing. No look with google.

Thanks in advance.

Even no luck with google.

Navigate Desktop and iMedia here for PTxxxx numbers.

Or click Old Link for older models.

They may not reference it as a 1208.

Try SIW Freeware download to see if you can find another model or look again on the label.

Go through Packard Bell's site, follow instructions for your model.

thanks robinofloxley and rdave13.

Already done all that. It's on board sound, realteck '97. Even the the motherboard website hasn't got the drivers and the realteck one's will not work.

Could be that the on-board sound chip has died. I'd look for a sound card to fix the problem.

SIW will tell you exactly what Realtek you have. Check the Realtek website again. Maybe you got the wrong one.

Sorry I can't suggest anything more. Good Luck.

Starting to think that rdave13 is right.

When realteck drivers installed there are no conflicts in device manager. When opening sound and audio devices in control panel it reports " no device ". Speakers are fine and work on a windows 7 and Mac.

Will close thrtead and order a pci audio card for it and report back if it gets going.
