I recently had a major problem after installing SP2. Computer is now working fine except windows media player tells me that it cannot find a sound device. I did have Realtek AC97 Controller but Belarc Advisor tells me that it is no longer there. Checking the add remove programmes shows the drivers are still there. How can I get my sound device back?
just had the same prob due to re-formatting. Go to start>control panel>system>hardware>device manager>sound,video,game controllers and you should see your AC soundcard there. Right click or view the toolbar icon to install the driver. Hope this works.
