You can use vista drivers, and maybe even XP, if you install it in compatibility mode. to do that right click the installer>properties>compatibility mode>check OS

Let us know if you need help

Hiya pal

Your system spec shows that you have "creative live 5.1" sound card aswell.
Why don't you disable your "sound max" on-board card from the bios and use the creative one instead

I recently upgraded this old Dell M1530 Vista x64 laptop to Windows 8 Enterprise x64. Apparently the sound company for it (Sigmatel) went out of business before Windows 7 was even released and their latest drivers are some ancient Vista drivers. Should I download and install the Sigmatel...
