Windows 7 - Realtek ALC655 Sound Card is incorrectly recognized as C-Media AC'

Asked By DefaultUse on 05-Mar-07 12:25 AM
Dear Sir/Madam,

The Realtek ALC655 Sound Card is incorrectly recognized as C-Media AC'97 in
Windows Update website (because it is also stated as AC'97). If the stated
driver in the Windows Update website is installed, the sound card shown in
the Device Manager may have a yellow sign, and the driver will be unable to
be loaded by Windows (even after rebooting). This happens in both Windows
2000 & Windows XP. Actually, the correct driver for this sound card is

Please remove this item from the Windows Update driver list. Thank you.

Hi there, The AC' 97 ( realtek amongst others) card uses the same
like blue screens that is.

If realy needed ( if it ain't broke do not try to "FIX"it) go to realteks
website and download drivers from there.

Best regards,
Michel Denie
