You are setting up a new laptop with Windows XP. You may have used a disk image from another laptop that used a SoundMax sound card. Even though you removed the SoundMax software, there is a registry key that remains and causes a conflict with the IDT drivers.
Locate this service :
and delete the whole key.
Also delete the file C:windowssystem32driversAEAudio.sys
I have the same scenario on DELL Latitude E5510 , i have tryied this solution but i didn’t work. iam using an image from another laptop of XP sp3.
Check the registry for drivers related to your old sound card. It may not match these instructions exactly.
Great post, spent nearly a week trying to resolve my issue, Scenario was i moved HDD from HP 6710b to a newer Dell E5500 & the soundcard issue just wouldnt work whatever I was trying.
Did this and searched for the sys file – located elesewhere – rebooted and went through the setup of IDT without errors 🙂
