Unhappy Problem with my sound card.

It's probalbly been about 2 years now since my sound stopped working. A few days before it went out for good, my sound was shutting off every once and a while and would stay shut off for a few hours. I have looked everywhere to try to fix this problem. Ive downloaded drivers, reset my audio and made sure my volume was all the way up. Windows says that the device is working properly. I have a Realtek AC97 Audio and the drivers from their site didnt help. I have a eMachines W3050 Windows XP and my system manufacturor was Gateway. Im pretty sure my sound card is integrated into my motherboard. I just want some advice on what to do. Are there any drivers out there that would work. Any way to figure out if my sound card is broken and if so, can I buy another one to put in my computer. All help is greatly appriciated.

Try downloading drivers from here: Realtek

Your eMachine probably doesn't have the latest drivers. Try that for now.

I have already downloaded the driver for windows xp. I went to realtek website, clicked on downloads, then AC97 audio codecs (software), accepted and downloaded the driver right above the linux part but my sound still doesnt work.

Did you download it from Realtek.com.tw? They have a different set of drivers.
