Have a Quantex PC that has on board sound. Need the driver for it but having a tough time getting the one I need since Quantex went belly up.

The Motherboard is a M6TWG with Intel 810 chip set. Says it has a AC 97 2.1 Sound Codec Onboard.

Believe the driver may have been by Crystal.

Thanks

I'm guessing you've searched for the drivers at www.driverzone.com

Don't lose your head updating email signatures!

Do your end users still have the wrong email signature? Do email signature updates bore you or fill you with a sense of dread? You can make this a whole lot easier on yourself by trusting an Exclaimer email signature management solution. Over 50 million users do...so should you!

Compaq has a few types of this driver:

here's the link for the Win2K/XP Ac 97 driver:

ftp://ftp.compaq.com/pub/softpaq/sp21001-21500/sp21132.exe

and this one is for Windows 98/ME/2000:

ftp://ftp.compaq.com/pub/softpaq/sp18001-18500/sp18302.exe

they are self extracting executables. SO they wil extract/install all in one shot and ask you to reboot.

and this is the Crystal CS4299 AC97 CODEC Audio Driver for Windows 2000:

ftp://ftp.compaq.com/pub/softpaq/sp17501-18000/sp17790.exe


Crystal CS4299 AC97 CODEC Audio Driver for Windows 98/ME:

ftp://ftp.compaq.com/pub/softpaq/sp17001-17500/sp17248.exe

You may want to go to the main list of "softpaqs" for Compaq machines. You also may have to extract these on a Compaq machine(I never tried on a non-Compaq machine, can't see any reason why they wouldn't extract though), here's the link to the list:

Hey All

Thanks for the input. Will try the suggestions out very soon. Being a holiday weekend and a honeydo list a mile long to do. Don't know when I will get to it.

Please bear with me.

Thanks a lot
