Alright... the sound driver has finally been installed on my tx1320eo!!! Exactly what happened i don't really know... i was cruising driverguide.com searching for drivers to my sound card when i stumbled upon the WDM R134 driver from realtek. Thought i had nothing to loose so i downloaded them. I force fed the device wizard thru the "floppy available" method and picked the .inf file called "HDA.inf" in the "WDM_R134\5233_PG206_R134_UAAV10a-5013\WDM" folder. I was suspecting a "device cannot start"-error upon completion (as I had been getting all of the other tries), but not this time, instead it gave me the bluescreen of death and i thought to myself "oh ****, now i'm really screwed". The computer booted and when in reentered windows the device wizard was all over the place, caliming that it had found new devices (among those the modem were one). I just kept hitting next, next, next and then it wanted to reboot again. When it reentered windows for the 329043 time in the search for audio drivers, i heard the lovley sound of windows startup (never thought i'd say that) and all of my problems were solved This might just have been a lucky shot with the bluescreen of death and all, but it worked for me... To help others in need i've uploaded the drivers that fixed my audio device: http://rapidshare.com/files/89323417/WDM_R134.zip.html This was done with a tx1320eo pavilion, just so u know. Hope this can help someone.
