Re: DRIVER NEEDED: Intel 24D5 (Windows XP Professional x64)
Intel does not make sound cards nor sound chips so try again with a hardware description. Sound chips are made by companies like Realtek, Cmedia, ADI SoundMAX, VIA, and IDT (formerly Sigmatel).
As a last resort (if you're unable to identify the hardware) open Device Manager, find and double-click the sound device, click the Details tab, select "hardware id" and give me the hardware id string that begins with "PCI\VEN", (1st./top line of text only). It should be something like "PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_24D5&SUBSYS_E0018086&REV_02".
8086 = Intel
24D5 = Audio Controller
(not much helpful info when looking for a matching driver)
When you fail to choose the correct interface, we have no way to know if your sound device is an add-on pci card or a chip that's built into the motherboard. It's very important (if you want reliable help) that you provide accurate (and adequate) info when asking for a driver.
Also, read post #12 on this web page: [url]http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f19/solved-missing-audio-controller-driver-216765.html[/url]
It looks like you might need this driver (which is a ADI SoundMAX AD1985 chipset/driver): [url]http://downloadmirror.intel.com/6816/eng/AUD_ALL32_126.96.36.19940_PV2.EXE[/url]
Some board makers have a way to disguise the actual sound chip so in your case it should be ADI SoundMAX AD1985.
Note: You should not create multiple identical threads...... one will suffice to get help. And I just now noticed you are asking for a 64-bit driver. I doubt one exists for this older sound chip. You might want to read the info presented in this thread: [url]http://windows.bigresource.com/Win7-No-Audio-for-SoundMax-AD1985-BKwbb8Lm.html[/url]
The uploader of this file states it's for Windows XP X64: [url]http://members.driverguide.com/driver/detail.php?driverid=640206[/url]
If nothing here works, then try doing a Windows Update to see if it will find a driver for the sound.
