Cannot detect speakers

by lernet - 8/16/09 6:54 PM

Hi,

Recently I reinstalled my Windows XP and now, I have problems getting the old machine to detect my speakers. I went to download the driver from Realtek, but each time it tries to install, halfway through, a blue screen will appear and I have to restart the computer. This has happened about 4 or 5 times and I am not sure what is the problem.

I downloaded the EVEREST program and here is the report on the details of my computer.
