I have a Dell GX1 450L Service Tag TL75V.
I have DOS 6.22 loaded and would like to enable the on board sound which is a chipset of Crystal CS4236B-KQ.
I have used the DELL Diagnostic utility and tested the sound ok.
What driver do I need and how do I load it

    you need to seek help from dell for drivers that are compatible for dos mode, not highly likely
    also you need to set them as legacy devices in the bios reserving the irq's & dma's associated to the sound crd (8bit dma 0,1, or 3 - 16bit dma 5, 6, or 7 - irq usually 5)

    Accepted Solution

    Search for CD4236 drivers for DOS. to download you need to either register or use the loginname drivers and password all.

    if the above fails, try driver magic (not free) they claim to find all drivers :
