The message I read is: WIndows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. Driver may be corrupted or missing [Code 39] Because I am unable to learn what Code 39 is, what the heck is the sytem telling me, what corrective action is needed? Fedback appreciated.

Go into the device manager and remove the audio drivers. Then reboot and windows may reinstall the drivers for you.

IF not, click here
SIW will ID the audio manufacturer and you can get new drivers.

Code 39
Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)

Recommended resolution

Reasons for this error include a driver that is not present; a binary file that is corrupted; a file I/O problem, or a driver that references an entry point in another binary file that could not be loaded.

Uninstall the driver, and then click Scan for hardware changes to reinstall or upgrade the driver.

C-Media audio drivers can be downloaded from its website:

C-Media onboard sound chipsets are remarkably good, especially in view of their very modest price.

Realtek is perhaps slightly superior but there's not much in it.

Thanks Stuart for the link. I use C-Media--No problems yet, but it's always handy to know where to find the right link.
