RE: ADVENT AIO 100 cant find drivers for soundcard having a nightmare

THAT question is easy to answer. Advent isn't a real computer manufacturer, it is a name used by DSG Group to re-badge computers from a range of manufacturers. So "Advent" computers are poorly documented and poorly supported.

RE: ADVENT AIO 100 cant find drivers for soundcard having a nightmare

you have to understand the manufacturing chain here

IDT/Sigmatel makes the audio codec chips and sell them to the motherboard manufacturers. The m/b makers assemble the chips in accordance with a master specification guided by information from Intel (Intel supplied the rest of the motherboard chipsets) BUT they tweak the chips to optimize performance - and in so doing often need dedicated drivers. In the case of a machine like this, the motherboard would have been a "bitza" from some no-name Chinese circuit board maker, sold to whoever actually designed and part-assembled the PC (no-one seems to have worked out who yet), then - probably - shipped to a third party european screwdriver plant for final assembly, before being shipped to the DSG group stores


In this case we know its a 92XX chipset from IDT
Its a case of trying drivers until you find one that works. The Intel site is the most likely place to find one that works - I'll have another check later. But first - which version of Windows is that machine running?

It looks as if Dell use the same chipset in some of their machines. Have you tried the audio drivers for the Dell Inspiron 1440/1545/1750 notebooks?

There should have been a copy of the drivers on the hard disk, or was that lost in a reformat?

Make Sure In the Vista Folder All Files Are Together When Updating - In Vista...

I Have Put Them In 2 Different Folders To Show The Location From Where They Came On The Computer.
