Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Computer shuts down periodically with error message

\015 Error report was sent to windows and they said problem was caused by windows R WDM driver for realtek ac 97 (alcxwdm.sys)\015

Answers :

You have one of two reason for this problem. The AC97 is your sound device in your PC. When windows went to use the AC97 either the device it self is defective or the software somehow became corrupt.
\015\012Lets check the driver in your PC. Left click the start button, slide up to & open control panel, open System icon. System Properties window will open. Click the hardware tab, than click the device manager button. Scroll down to the + sign next to Sound, video and game conreoller. Do you see a yellow ! point any where? If your answer is yes than your sound device AC97 needs the driver software re-installed. You did not post the model number of your PC or the manufacture's name for your PC.
\015\012Ex: Acer, Dell, Hp ect.
\015\012Model numbers ex: Aspire E500, Inspiron 530, Pavilion a6450z ect.
\015\012With that information I can go to their web site & find your correct (possible updated) software for your AC97 sound driver.
\015\012I can guid you to the web site & have you download the driver software & save it on your PC. (untill than).
\015\012Your PC came with a manual & Cd's. You can load each cd & search for the sound driver for your AC97 sound card. Once found you can install the sound cards software for your version of windows.
\015\012If you post the requested information I will find your needed software.
