It is onboard audio, but this doesn't mean it is Realtek AC'97 codec. It can be Soundmax, C-Media or something else. Use Aida64 to find out.
PCI/PnP Audio= Realtek C658@ATI SB400 - AC 97 Audio Controller
Audio Codecs=Fraunhofer iis MPEG Layer-3Codec
(Driver Description) Microsoft ADPCM CODEC
" CCITT G.711 A-Law & V-Law
" GSM 6.10 Audio Codec
" IMA ADPCM Codec
" PCM Converter
(Field) Driver Description= Fraunhofer etc etc ..as above
Copyright Notice= 1996-1999
Driver Features= decoder only version
Driver Version= 1.09
The Motherboard= MSI MS-7184 (Amethyst-M)
The Bios System date= 08/31/05
This looks quite old and maybe there is an update..though always hard to find.
So looks like it is Realtek but maybe this tells you what version of drivers are needed.
Hope this was helpful and I gave enough details about the multimedia
Anyway I now have all systems working...
Line in (Realtek AC 97 Audio)
Microphone (Realtek AC 97 Audio)
Phone Line (Realtek AC 97 Audio)
SPDIF (Realtek AC 97 Audio)
Speakers (Realtek AC 97 Audio)
I did a "properties" on all of the above and there are NO Drivers needed or installed on any of them.
I'm sorry I can't give more details but it looks as though with your very good help and my persistence it has decided to work.
I am really grateful for your help as I would probably have just given up and used the USB Card.
Wait! This is an ATI SB400 AC'97 audio card (VIA 8233 AC'97 chipset), not a standard Realtek AC'97 audio card. So you need different driver. Go to the VIA download site and select 1) Microsoft Windows, 2) Windows Vista 32-bit (or 64-bit), 3) Audio, 4) VIA AC'97 and click to download the driver. Since the setup might not work in Windows 10, extract the files in a folder and try to manually install the driver from Device Manager. The direct download link is here.
I need Help from you. I updated my PC to Windows 10, but the sound doesn't work.
I have a Realtek board and when I try to install his drivers the pc crashes with a blue screen.
How I can resolve this problem?
Ps I'm Italian, sorry for my English
Aparently the old link doesn't work. Try this link to download the AOpen driver and then boot into Safe Mode and manually install it from Device Manager (see my previous posts in this thread for details).
Try this link from drivers base. I just downloaded, it works. I hope it is the same working AOpen audio driver (haven't tried).
I would upload it here, but it exceeds the limit of 8MB and doesn'e allow me. If it does work, please let me know. Download it as long as the link still works.
