Windows 7: Sound Drivers for Win7 on Acer Veriton 5800

Sound Drivers for Win7 on Acer Veriton 5800

I just tried putting Win7 on this old Veriton and it seems alright except no sound.

Dxdiag reports no audio drivers at all.

What options do I have? Any drivers for these old Veritons? That's a G945 board. All G945's would use the same win7 driver, would they? Are there any?

Otherwise I have to add in a sound card? Or an audio dongle these days?

Can't go to Win10, I suppose. That would be even worse wouldn't it? Yet more modern, leaving this old machine way behind? If there's no win7 drivers for it there wouldn't be win10 drivers would there?

Windows 10 64 bit

I haven't researched this PC, but most PC's designed for XP and only XP sound drivers will not work in Vista/Win 7 as Microsoft changed the way sound was handled in Vista and thus a new driver was required. In most cases it will require installing a separate sound card (or using a USB connected sound card) to have audio.

To answer your question, if there are no Win 7 drivers most likely no Win 10 drivers. Win 8.1/Win 10 require even different sound drivers as the Vista/Win 7 sound drivers are not compatible and many other drivers may not be available.

BSOD with Acer Veriton M275 after adding Asus EAH4350 Silent
I've recently added the EAH4350 to be able to attach a second monitor. The video card always worked regularly in a previous PC (not with windows though). Now from time to time and in a apparently random fashion the system hangs with a BSOD. The system is always used for very lightweight office...

My PC also takes a while to start up now. I have to shut it off and back on maybe 2-3 times before it'll boot...
