Hey i'm having some issues with my soundcard which is a sigma-tel (stac97n)
I have recently reinstalled windows and have got all the drivers for all
of my other hardware sortred out except for some reason when i try to
install the drivers to my soundcard it does all the installation stuff and
does a system restart but when it boots up again i look in the device manager
and my soundcard drivers arn't there and my sound doesn't work
any solutions/advice would be most helpful
