"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This usually happens if other important drivers are missing or haven't been installed yet. Always start with the chipset drivers. Then many intel and realtek soundcards require another driver installed before the actual driver. It's usually called something like UAA driver. So check the homepage of your manufacturer, get those drivers and install them before installing the sound driver.
