This seems to be a great site for quality assistance, thanks! If you’re asking for technical help, please be sure to include all your system info, including operating system, model number, and any other specifics related to the problem. I have attached below the driver for each chip in. You are reporting the following post: Wilkinson January 13, 4: But the damage had already been done. Oh yeah – I know one of the drivers I attached works for sure with W98, the other one should I don’t remember which is which:

This was helpful cs4299-w. It appears that the Pavilion XL was sold with 2 different Crystal audio chips: The on-chip oscillator eliminates the need for an external crystal oscillator circuit, thereby reducing overall design cost and crjstal circuit board space. I’m not sure it will help, but you can xodec try it in Safe Mode. Every time I remove the device and restart, Windows finds it again and automatically assigns this driver to it again.

I haven’t worked on a W98 system in years, but you’d have to right-click on the device in the Device Manager, select “update driver” or something similar, then use the wizard to ‘force’ it to use one of these drivers I view properties and see this: You’ll find discussions about fixing problems with computer hardware, computer software, Windows, virusessecurityas well as networks and the Internet.


Oh yeah – I know one of the drivers I attached xodec for sure with W98, the other one should I don’t remember which is which: I do not know the chip number. I’m sure this will work as soon as I figure out how to completely clean out the Realtek drivers.

PC crashed during AC ’97 update by Realtek. No sound now. – Forums – CNET

The chip is a Crystal Audio AC’97 compatible device, and after much searching I managed to find 3 different sets of drivers that might work. Crsytal had this up on the Tom’s Hardware forums for 4 days and it hasn’t seen any help.

I’ve done this with sound drivers and modem drivers when things got rough. A sound card I crystall understand, but a set module? Solutions Voice Playback Record Control.

Audio Codec ‘97

Crashdance22Sep 10, Crashdance22Aug 14, I always update all drivers and firmware, but have never updated onboard sound without having a problem with it. I seem to have some potentially working drivers here I didn’t see any “incompatible hardware” errorsbut I’m having different problems with all 3 of them. This post has been flagged and will be reviewed by our staff.


There must be a better way to stop Windows from assigning this driver automatically, no? I tried running the troubleshooter but it can’t handle this situation.

Attempting to update it by right clicking “update driver”, chi “choose from a list of drivers” and selecting “have disk” results in a “device not fully compatible with this driver” error with CS I have about 18gigs free space. As to the hardware buffering, it shouldn’t be a problem, and the only way around it is to install a PCI sound card that has hardware buffering. Then, on the next window, expand “sound, video, and game controllers,” double-click each one listed, and if there is a “driver” tab, try using “roll back driver.

Any assistance is much appreciated. This is as far as I get with the second set of drivers I found, with the system sound device still unusable.
