I want to get rid of Vista on my new Dell laptop '1735'.
I have installed XP but cannot get the sound to work.
I went to this page...which was mentioned here and other sites:
got all of the drivers there.
When I try to install the IDT PC Audio Driver it tells me to wait while it update the audio hardware configuration....the I get a pop up saying that 'another instance of this setup is already running. Please wait for the other instance tofinish and then try again'.
....nothing else is running...I can reboot and go straight to this install and get the same message.
When I install the AMD HDMI Audio Driver it seems to work.
When I install the 'Unknown Audio Device' I get a pop up saying 'setup has detected that the service pack version of this system is newer than the update you are applying...there is no need to install.
Then the second part of the unknown driver part says to update with the AMD HDMI driver.
I have installed and reinstalled and reinstalled and reinstalled and reinstalled and reinstalled and punched things and fucking screamed but even those last 2 things do not help!!!
How the hell do I get some sound on this thing. There is not really anything complicated to do here so don't see what I could be missing.
