having recently been given a laptop with a destroyed harddrive and being under the completely false impression that after building several desktops I could tackle a laptop I come to you all on bended knee. :sad:

I am trying to bring a systemax laptop with an intel 852/855 chipset back from the ashes. Unfortunately the onboard audio is proving to be a complete nightmare.

everest tells me that what I need is a driver for an 82801DBM AC'97 Audio Controller (ICH4-M B1 Step)

unfortunately I haven't been able to find an AC'97 driver that has any effect. I have found a few install fine, but when I goto the device manager and check the driver it says "unable to start".

Any and all help would be extremely appreciated.
