I have a Realtek ALC 880, so its the HD Audio chip. Its an on board chip. So I check realtek.com, and they had one labeled XP/2000/Server 2003. However, I checked the zip because the exe won't work, and it was only for 2000 SP4, XP SP1, and XP SP2 (And server). Anyone know of any drivers?

A quick Google search shows that you're probably looking for a setup file called wdm_r274.exe. It can be found on several websites that aren't the official Realtek page.

Alternatively, you could run a scan of your device using something like Driver Magician to see what driver it recommends for your audio device.

Edit: It is on the Realtek website, too. It's probably the same version you tried before. Have you tried installing it using the inf method?

Just try the XP SP2 drivers. They might be a little old but should still work.
Don't use the setup exe, go to device manager and update the drivers manually.
Failing that you can try DriverPack Solution Online. https://drp.su/en
I use it at work, just don't install the optional software crap that it recommends.
