Sound Card Woes
Posted on 2001-07-30
Well I just installed Windows 2000 Server and I love it and i couldnt say enough good things about it but finding the right sound drivers is a pain! Ive been working on it for a couple days to no avail. Seems like every corner i turn leads to a dead end. First the basics. I'm running an Athlon AMD 800 Mhz processor with 192 meg RAM and 15 gig HDD with an Onboard PCI Stereo AC '97 Codec PCI Sounds soundcard. For some reason i cannot find any drivers that are compatible with Win2000. I got the Win98 drivers and they worked when i had Win98 installed but now that i have installed Win2000 Server i am in a bind. so im figuring the drivers dont exist? anyone, anyone? anyway i gave up finding the drivers for the onboard sound card so i figured i could just grab a sound card from work and install it. i have picked up a Sound Blaster AWE64 sound card - Model CT4380 from Creative Labs and i am going to try to get the drivers but once again i am finding that they dont exist for Win2000. Can someone point me in the right direction please? Thanks alot.
