Need driver for PDS/Aopen XC Cube Audio ??

folks
anyone know about this model PDS or Aopen 'XCCube' model EZ915-M? apparently the maker can't keep their notes straight so they have a "Realtek high definition audio" driver for Vistax86, but when you run it, it says "device not found"... i.e. its not the right driver for the IC.

I'm stumped for the moment. not at all sure what part is actually on the MB.
Everything else is installed, working, activated

ahh... damn... it's that driver detective.. don't use it

here are drivers for your system from the manufacturers site: http://usa.aopen.com/download.aspx
you may have to look around for a similar system that has your hardware as aopen made no drivers for win 7 for the ez915

you can try one of the HD audio drivers from the realtek site, but if your sound is working with the generic driver that came with the windows 7 installation, just stick with it.

yeah I am trying that now. w7 could not load anything, so no worky

update: failed. dunno why. The W7 troubleshooting loop at least has some diff messages this time, going through a bunch of checks & stuff to no avail.

I have the similar issue with video: video works ok, looks ok, but its generic and gets a !bang in device manager.
sure wish i had one good set of specs that tells me for sure what these devices really are

hey, I noticed something I have not seen before on Windows 7. If I go to Device Manager, with the W7-supplied High Def Audio driver installed, it shows the device "working properly", i.e. no more bangs. HOwever its not true: If I go to the control panel and lookup the Audio Device, it shows "No Device Installed".

is that "normal"? in other words it has a driver unattached to any hardware, but considers the registry of the driver to be "working properly" ???

Found it.
Finally got a magnifying glass out and went chip hunting. found the IC: Realtek ALC880

so now I know the question to ask: 'anybody got ALC880 drivers for 7 Home Premium 32-bit' ?
