Any news for drivers
for the AC97? This is weird, but on my old old old Pentium 4 system (3.2 Ghz, 2GB Ram, Ati HD2600xt AGP) the sound is working completely fine, and it is an older realtek sound device, the AC 97. I think the driver
I am using is a mix of Vista/XP drivers, since I see the same old Sound Management program from 2004, and not the new redesigned sound management which I see on the Alienware m15x with Realtek HD Audio. It is better though, because even though it looks dated, I can still apply global equalizer settings adjusted by me and not just some presets. In the other hand, I have to let you know that after upgrading the Bios on the Alienware m15x and finding a process that was taking almost all CPU power and memory, I no longer experience sound issues. The process was the power management from Alienware.
