I have an Intel AC '97 SoundMAX card and need to replace it but can't find any info on compatible cards. I'm using a Dell Optiplex GX520 CPU. I'd appreciate it if anyone can help me on this. Thank you so much!
First Soundmax is Analog Devices not Sigmatel IDT.
Second the AC97 codec is soldered onto the motherboard.
There are Drivers for the Soundmax codec for ALL versions of windows.
DirectX June 2010 is also Highly Recommended.
Download file, Extract to a folder, RUN DXSETUP.EXE as Administrator.
The Analog Devices AD198X codec does have WHQL drivers from the Microsoft Catalog.
