guys do the following thing
* Step 1

Go to Start > Run and type Regedit

* Step 2

This will open up Windows Registry Editor. Next, follow the location of the key below by navigation through the little [+] signs you see next to the folders.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Windows\CDSVersion

* Step 3

Change the value of the CSDVersion Dword and give it the value 200. and restart

* Step 4

Try to install your driver again, you should not get the error this time. Once installed, restart your computer and resotre the registry key back to 300.

Note: The 300 refers to the service pack you are running. In this example we fooled windows into thinking we had service pack 2, although we are actually running service pack 3!

Once you have restarted your machine you should have a fully working sound driver!

Yes and I have tried to use these drivers. Another forum told me that I had to install the "Chipset: INF Update Utility for 845 Chipset-Based Intel Desktop Boards" first....restart the computer, and then install the audio driver. I did this and still it didn't work. The audio driver for my MoBo "Audio: AC 97 ADI* " does not work. The program goes through the set-up but at the end it says "No Driver Found! Restart computer and run set-up again." (something along those lines). So I'm not sure what else to do.

You need a MS patch to recognize the onboard sound properly. I forget which KB, but it gets installed by default with SP3 - you should be able to update XP and then the driver should install.
