Agree with AubreyS. Unless it's not working, I wouldn't bother trying a new driver.
You said you've changed to XP Pro and want to obtain sound driver for this OS instead of the "XP ones" that have been installed. If you mean the previous OS was XP Home, then the driver is the same for both Home and Pro.
If you mean you don't want the default driver which Windows has installed, a search on the Gigabyte website on your motherboard shows that the onboard sound is provided by Realtek. click here which is quite a large file.
On another site the Avance AC97 codec is described as Realtek Avance AC97, so perhaps they're the same thing.
You can always unroll the driver if it doesn't work properly.
Now have it confirmed. The realtek is the correct driver. It's confusing though because Advent say Avance AC97, Gigabyte say Realtek and my machine says it's Intel. I suspect this driver is there because it's the nearest XP had when it installed. Apparantly the avance would probably work as well.
The upgrade by the way was on top of Win98 because my supplied recovery disc for ME (I hate those things) wouldn't work after I installed a new hard drive.
Thanks for your help. I'm grateful.
