I am having a similar problem. When I go to install my sound driver it crashes while installing. So, as a last resort I go into safe mode and it installs. But then I go into Windows normally and it crashes. So then I use the Last Know Configuration (The last settings that worked) and it boots into Windows but no sound card. Here is a Everest Report:

When asking for help with problems with an audio driver install, it's helpful to say what driver file you were trying to install and from where you got it.

Don't you find it strange that almost every piece of hardware on your motherboard is identified as being Intel 82801? There is no such audio chip.... This motherboard contains one of these: ADI AD1885, AD1980, AD1981A or AD1981B codecs.
This chip is made by Analog Devices Inc or better known as ADI SoundMax.

The correct file to download is wdm3516b_Cadenze.exe

It's size is 18.5 MB.

You can download it from this web page: [url]http://downloadcenter.intel.com/download.aspx?url=/12170/eng/wdm3516b_Cadenza.exe&DwnldId=12170&ProductID=825&l ang=eng[/url]

If you need other files for this motherboard, please visit this web page: [url]http://downloadcenter.intel.com/filter_results.aspx?strTypes=all&ProductID=825&OSF ullName=Windows+XP+Professional*&lang=eng&strOSs=4 4&submit=Go%21[/url]

Hi,

These are the drivers from Sony, you have to download the lot I'm afraid. Audio is ADI 1981b which is soundmax. Also you need the Sony Shared Library as it contains INF files.
[url]http://support.vaio.sony.co.uk/downl...s=VGC-V&m=1753[/url]

When you open the download all the files are listed under their name in folders. If it lists a Chipset then install first, then the Shared Library then the audio

Set a System Restore Point before installing drivers just in case
Start / All Programs / Accessories / System Tools / System Restore / select Create a restore point and follow instructions
