Question about Sony VAIO PCV-RX463DS PC Desktop
Normally, Windows XP is installed into this system. My system ended up actually giving me blue screens and then failed to start the operating system all together.
The PCV-RX463DS does not come with recovery CDs or Windows XP install disk.
I had no choice but to format the computer and install the only operating system I have on disk which is Windows 98.
Everything is working fine with windows 98 with the exception of the sound drivers. ( ADI SoundMax Integrated Digital Audio )
I did find one SoundMax driver that installed but didn't work properly only heard a few sounds like the click of my mouse followed by patterns of static.
Hoping someone could help me with the drivers for windows 98. Perhaps someone knows how to get into the .exe file for the windows xp install utility and snatch out the drivers so I can use them for the .exe install utility is only compatable with windows xp.
If I could just get the drivers out of the install utility it would work fine but I don't know how to do that. It would be easy to just manually install the drivers myself instead of going through .exe install utilities.
I've tried just about every SoundMax driver I can find on the internet but the ones that would work are inside install utilities that request that I run windows xp.
Much apprechiated, thanks.
