Windows 7: SoundMAX AD 1985

14 Mar 2010   #11

Perfect working adi 1985 windows 7

The right way is:

1- Download the windows xp driver from named: "AUD_ALL32_5.12.1.5240_PV2.EXE"

2- Unpack the executable autoinstalable driver using "winrar" for example.You must drop the file using the right mouse button after installing winrar , and decompress the file in a folder.

3- Go to device manager in control panel, click on the not working audio device , and just update the driver using the path where you decompressed the executable.

Thanks to you all from Catalonia!!

That Intel brewed file was a pretty good decision. The juice also works. In both of them you have to select this driver file that says 5CH. There is one thing though that is getting on my nerves. The 5.1 channel sound will only manifest itself when you watch DVD or AVI with the appropriate sound. It it also possible with WMA files coded for multichannel. Now when I am listening to mp3 files it will only play the 2 front speakers and that is terrible. Despite of that they are stereo my Windows XP was able to deliver sound trough all the speakers. I tried Winamp as it traditionally works that way but to no avail. Can someone help me with that issue. There is something wrong with Win7 DSP definitions I think.

I was trying to get on-board audio working for a couple hours, it was frustrating.

That driver enabled me to run "Windows 7 starter edition 32 bit" on "Intel Desktop Board D865GRH"

I had to force the driver to install (ie : device manager, "have disk") but it works perfectly.

Here are some keywords for Google :
