Windows 7: Advent T9403 - No Sound

Advent T9403 - No Sound

I've upgraded this machine from XP to Win7 but the drivers for sound (CMedia CMI9880L) and Network (Creatix 405 PCI 802.11g wireless) don't install. They were ok for Win7RC.
I've spent a day searching for compatible drivers but nothing works.
Any advice out there?

the drivers (if they are vista, or xp drivers) need to be installed in compatibilty mode. to do that you right click the file>properties>compatibility mode.

Let us know if you need help or it doesn't work

I've tried various compatibility modes but none install the drivers. Previously they worked fine on XP SP3.
They did work when I did the same on Win7RC. Perhaps the difference is that RC was Ultimate whereas I've now bought and installed Home Premium?
Any further advice?

Hi there: I have the same problem. I can not find a driver for my sound card CMI9880L after I have upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

I gave up and remained soundless pending purchase of a new machine.

Well, it's not that bad. Since I have a desktop computer, I can buy an extra sound card and just plug it in. Or you think that won't work either??!!!

Sound in Windows 7 for C-Media CMI9880L

The following works.
Extract the driver in XP with a driver backup program (driver checker, etc).
Store it in a folder. (It is in the attachment: downlaod and unpack).
Goto Device Manager, right click Audio and select Update driver.
Point to the driver folder in next menus.
Ignore the message that the driver cannot be checked.

Thanks a million Karl123 for the link to the sound drivers. Downloaded them and installed onto a windows 7 machine. Worked right out of the box with no rebooting.
