Hi. Hope someone can help me with this one. Computer (eMachines T6412 with integrated Realtek AC97 audio) has no sound.
Speaker connections are fine. Volume is not muted.
When the sound effects manager in the control panel is opened and I run the speaker test, they're fine. (When I try to run the HRTF demo, there is nothing.) No other sounds work at all, not even the computer's sound effects.
Don't know if it's related, but I've also noticed that the volume control on the keyboard is not responsive. Strange. Any ideas?

Old out of date AC97 drivers may be left over on your system.
Uninstall, reboot, cancel install then search for left over files.
They start with "alc" like this one "alcxinit.dat".
Make sure you include system folders in your search.
Delete these left over files then install your AC97 drivers.
