If it installs, make sure you allow RealMan. I tried running the troubleshooter but it can’t handle this situation. Attempting to update it by right clicking “update driver”, selecting “choose from a list of drivers” and selecting “have disk” results in a “device not fully compatible with this driver” error with CS No, create an account now. I seem to have some potentially working drivers here I didn’t see any “incompatible hardware” errors , but I’m having different problems with all 3 of them. Right click on the sound device listed in Unknown Devices and select “Device Details”. I’ve done this with sound drivers and modem drivers when things got rough.

(Windows 98) Problems Installing Crystal Audio Sound Drivers

I can’t get anywhere with either file, probably because I’m trying to update these drivers rather than installing them clean. If it installs, make sure you allow Crytsal. My video card is pretty minimal. You gave me confidence in that I know there are people angels like you out there to bail us newbies out.

The chipset is Intel This seems to be a great site for quality assistance, thanks! Audio Clock Generation and Jitter Reduction.

I got some new Bose speakers for the laptop and I thought that perhaps I might obtain some more sound quality by updating the codecs. Crashdance22Aug 14, I’m eager to get this going and am sure at least one of these links will do the trick, but first I need to get a monitor for this as I won’t be bringing this machine with me to my apartment.

Thanks for the fast responses! There must be a better way to stop Windows from assigning this driver crysfal, no? Crashdance22Sep 9, I will try that tomorrow, thanks.

PC crashed during AC ’97 update by Realtek. Sorry, there was a problem flagging this post.

As to the hardware buffering, it shouldn’t be a problem, and the only way around it is to install a PCI sound cyip that has hardware buffering. The update is not worth the risk, imo. I don’t know if they’d be flashed into the sound chip, I figured the software would do it all correctly.


Run the installer and hope it doesn’t crash again. Every time I remove the device and restart, Windows finds it again and automatically assigns this driver to codce again.

It is sooo good to have my sound back after several days of no sound that I am gonna leave it as is. I’m sure this will work as soon as I figure out how to completely clean out the Realtek drivers. Any xrystal is much appreciated. After a restart the device still has the yellow icon in the Device Manager and is, of course, unusable.
