    Hi litldrummerboy and welcome to Vista Forums

    We need some more information about your system as we need to ascertain that you do have a Realtek codec installed on your motherboard. If it is Realtek, then see here for the latest driver information: Latest Realtek HD Audio Driver Version Save the file to your computer and then run the install from there. Don't try to run it as you download it (especially with their download speeds).
