C-Media AC97 Audio Device Error

My sound card is giving me trouble. Windows XP finds and device and installs
the drivers, but gives an error "There was a problem installing this
hardware: This device cannot start. (Code 10)" When I do a properties on
the device in the device manager under the Driver tab I show:
Driver Provider: C-Media Inc
Driver Date: 5/20/2005
Version: 5.12.1.49

I have removed and re-added the device many times, each time resulting in
Code 10. The sound card was working just fine before I reformatted my HDD.

motherboard drivers that came with your PC??

Regretfully no. I have misplaced the cd that came with my motherboard (in a
move).

I went to http://www.ecsusa.com/ and did a search for the model number of my
motherboards. Turns out I didn't have the C-media built in sound chipset,
but something else. Hope this helps you.
