    I'm desperately trying to get my audio up and working on my 64-bit PC,
    but I can't find drivers that work for the life of me. I tried using
    the AC'97 64-bit installer from Realtek's site, but not only does it
    not work, it doesn't look like it even installed anything (which was a
    big letdown after having to cope with their horribly slow download

    Does anyone have any links to audio drivers that are proven to work on
    Win x64?

    Not without you telling us what sound card you are using. If it is on the
    motherboard, give the mobo make and model. Have you made sure you have the
    proper sound settings in your BIOS?

    Realtek HAS working x64 drivers for ther mobo embedded audio chipsets.
    Please do as John Barnes is saying: give us details about your mobo.

    My mobo is a WinFast 760GXK8MB. IT can't be too old; DirectX 9.0 was on
    the install CD that came with it.

    Thanks for the link, but I tried those drivers and they're not working.

    You need to be more specific about your hardware and your problem. I
    have been using the RealTek 64-bit drivers for over 2 years now and have
    never encountered a problem!

    This says it all.

    The ALC655 is a 16-bit, full-duplex AC'97 Rev. 2.3 compatible six-channel
    audio CODEC designed for PC multimedia systems, including host/soft audio
    and AMR/CNR-based designs.

    Your mobo has an on-board audio which is controlled by the SiS 760GX
    chipset using the Realtek ALC655 codec, providing 6 channels.
    Download your drivers from here:

    My problem is that whenever I download and install the RealTek drivers,
    they install correctly. Then, when I reboot and check the audio devices
    it gives me a "no devices" error.

    I tried the drivers that were on the motherboard site; they're not
    working. Thanks anyway.

    I had to forget the RealTek drivers and bought Creative X-Fi and
    downloaded their newest drivers.

    Too bad you couldn't find one that worked on the older 16-bit audio system.
    The AC97 work fine on the newer 20-bit audio.

    I don't suppose you know where I might find an x64 audio driver for my
    mx7525 gateway notebook. I beleive the sound chip is a realtec but not for
    sure only that the realtec driver if found installed ok but I have no sound I
    checked volume and mute and external speakers no go.

    According to the Gateway support web site, your sound chip is Conexant
    Audio. So, I seriously doubt a RealTek driver will do any good.

    The first step is to contact Gateway. They should be your first source
    of hardware drivers.

    I think you can find more information about your sound by looking in the
    Windows Properties.

    You might also try places like www.PlanetAMD.com

    ! symbol for Microsoft UAA Bus Driver for High-Definition Audio,you have to
    download the hotfix KB901105.

    The most important question is: What are your hardware specs? some of
    the vendors have their own drivers optimized for their specific hardware.

    So, give us some information about your system.
