[AFTER REFORMATTED MY WINDOWS XP HOME EDITION]<br><br>
Ok. I've been having troubles with this damned driver for a while now..<br>
I got rid of all my drivers with Driver Cleaner, Then reinstalled the Realtek AC97 Windows XP Driver. Then when i started my computer up again, it just kept resetting. So, i went into safe mode, and checked the driver in Device Manager.<br>
It came up with this<br><a href="http://img467.imageshack.us/my.php?image=***yt3.jpg" target="_blank">
</a><br><br>
I didn't know what the 'WINNMM' one was, but it said 'It has now finished installing windows components, please restart your computer' So i did, but then before i got to log in, it restarted again. SO, i went back into safe mode, and now it looks like this.<br><a href="http://img467.imageshack.us/my.php?image=uhhbd2.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://img467.imageshack.us/img467/4541/uhhbd2.th.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"></a><br><br><br>
Finally i got it somehow just to have the 'Realtek' driver showing, but still, each time i start up my computer with it enabled, it just restarts itself.<br>
SO, i disabled it, and was able to log into my user.<br><a href="http://img209.imageshack.us/my.php?image=workxj9.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://img209.imageshack.us/img209/8748/workxj9.th.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"></a><br><br><br>
So, it's installed etc. Just restarts my computer all the time when enabled. Anyone know what the problem may be.. :/<br><br>

It could possibly be a power supply problem.<br><br>
As far as your computer constantly restarting. That's what it sounds like to me.

The constant restart problem is most likely to be because of an error or conflict with the driver. I know because when I was installing a 56K modem once, after I restarted after installing the drivers, my computer kept restarting only a little time into the windows login screen. Can you obtain the AC'97 drivers from anywhere else? The way I fixed my problem was to completely uninstall all the drivers, re-download them from somewhere else and re-install. Good luck.

I just tried to install a SoundMax Inbuilt Audio driver, because that's what i used to have...Buuut, it didn't work.<br />
Would someone be able to point me to a SoundMax AC97 Driver?

Long shot but have you tried to disable it in the BIOS, do a full reboot remove drivers, then the shut down reEnable in BIOS, reload drivers.
