You are not installing the proper driver.

I'm installing the realtek AC'97 audio driver that was recommended by the lenovo website. Can you suggest a different driver and send a link to the free download?

All I know about the machine is that it's an IBM Lenovo thinkpad T43 #26686DU serial#L3AP3G7. I hope that's enough info OS is XP SP3

Hi

I strongly suggest that you uninstall the driver

1.Start Windows and log on with the user ID authorized as an administrator for Windows 2000/XP.
2.Depending on the operating system choose one of the following paths:

?For Windows XP, click Start, and then click Control Panel.
3.Double-click Add/Remove Programs.
4.Click SoundMax, and then click Change/Remove or Add/Remove.
5.Select Remove or OK, then click Next or OK.
6.Click Finish or OK and reboot the system to fully uninstall the drivers.

Go to this page and download the proper driver to install:

Good luck
