Let me first off by saying I use a Mac, why? For this very reason, generally they just work.
Anyways, I keep getting an error message with Windows Vista when I install an audio driver, 'This device cannot start. (Code 10)'. It seems pretty common, but when I resinstall the drivers Vista says, The driver is up to date.
You may be using an incompatible driver. If it is not an exact match against your hardware, the driver will appear to load, but the device will not initialize itself. This is a common problem with the "standard" AC97 sound hardware. You'll need to find the exact type of the computer motherboard or sound card, and visit the manufacturer for the latest drivers. Naturally, a hardware failure cannot be excluded.
