Audio driver needed for Sony Vaio VGN-SX61MN/B model laptop with Windows XP SP3!

I recently downgraded to XP SP3 from Vista and cannot find a suitable audio driver. The ones on the Vaio website seem not to install properly. Very frustrating! Please help.

Have you tried running Windows Update to see if it's able to identify/download any drivers automatically? The Lazy Way (tm) doesn't work every time, but sometimes you get lucky, and generally it's pretty good about grabbing updated audio or video drivers. :)

Try this one.

I expect it will do the trick?

But failing that try the... Sigmatel site?
Or even other laptop manufacturers that used that same part?
Persistence always pays off :)

Also I'm assuming that when you run the install for your audio driver you get *some kind of error message/ it indicates that the install has failed*
and not that it appears to install correctly but you still have no sound. Yeah?

Response by poster: That's correct. It appears as if the computer hasn't acknowledged that the audio device even exists as I can't find it in device manager etc!
