I have installed XP pro 32 bit on my precision 360 and all is ok except the sound driver. Dells support only gived an ADI driver oprion when i enter my service tag. Also when i looked at the BIOS update it only lists a dimension machine. Have DELL changed the motherboard and not put the drivers up. I have tried several AC97 drivers without success. This is a very common problem reported but as yet no solution. Thanks for any help. Andy
This might work-- download.cnet.com/.../3000-2120_4-10238712.html Bios has nothing to do with sound drivers so don't mess with that. Some Dell Precisions and Dimensions have the same motherboards so will share drivers. Make sure you followed the correct order of driver installations here--
Mary G is correct. For example, the Precision 360 Analog Devices ADI 198x Integrated Audio driver R56339.EXE is the same one we use on all of these other models
Dimension Desktop 2300C
Dimension Desktop 2350
Dimension Desktop 4500C
Dimension Desktop 4550
Dimension Desktop 4590T
Dimension Desktop 8250
SmartPC 350D / 450D
You must have installed the Intel Chispet driver and restarted before loading the audio driver.
The driver you mention is the one that the Drivers page recommends - but it did NOT work on my Dell Precision360. I searched for a couple of weeks on forums like this one, and found a lot of ineffective advice. I finally searched on Dell's site under the product model (Precision) rather than using the service tag. On the 7th page of results, I found driver 70756. Installed and sound works fine.
I saw a lot of other dell users struggling with this one; I think that Dell has it wrong when they say that the Precision 360 uses the same driver as the Precision 350.
Correct driver for the Precision 360 is at:
Thank you very much for this information. I have been searching for days for the correct driver. Like you, I found that the Dell recommended one did not work. I have downloaded R70756, and have sound at last.
Thanx to HarryS62 for post this link
DELL Precicion 360 Audio Driver R70756
You save Lifes!!!
Somebody have to repot this error to the "Drivers & Downloads" web site, and stop making people cry
Thanks to HarryS62 for the link and fix.
I am sitting here on June 1st wondering why the support site still has the wrong file given for this model. C'mon Dell, get that fixed! I used to love your company.
I performed A Clean Install of Windows XP on a Precision 360 about a year ago. At that time the drivers worked fine when I input the tag. Now with no tag selected the driver set is completely wrong. The drivers and downloads page has been bad of recent but this units page is the biggest mess up I have seen. The BIOs update listed is for a Dimension Desktop 4590T and not a Precision 360.
The drivers I used were all from the support website in the past when I had no issue. I hope the links help but I realise you can have a different video card:
Well I put the Service Tag in now, 1 driver! and its a Roxio-Patch! How useless. I have reported this mess on the Rockstar forums.
