Locate Setup.exe. If you kept the default unpack options, it should be in C:\swsetup\SP27103
Right-click on Setup.exe and select Properties
Select the Compatibility Tab
Check the box for "Run this program in compatibility mode for Windows XP"
Check the box for "Run this program as administrator"
Apply these changes and exit the properties dialog

Enjoy your integrated sound card as it was meant to be enjoyed
or
Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll to sound video and game controllers you might see a yellow question / exclamation? ! mark or a red X Right click to reinstall drivers

Making a jump from XP to Win 7 can be a problem with hardware. In Device Manager is that the ONLY Unknown Device? First we need the IBM model. Win 7 32 or 64 bit? What is the Sound Card, Make model? You can sometimes use Vista drivers, change the compatibility to Win 7.

Testimonial: "Refer the S/N plate, my model is IBM Thinkcentre 3320-I58 and Lenovo classified it as M92z(But no effect when using that driver). And I remember that I have use the SoundMAX as driver when using XP."

    All I see is Realtek, not Sound Max? Have you done ALL your Win 7 updates? When you open Device Manager is the Audio device listed?

    Thank you. When I checking for the updates of my Win7, I discover that Windows Update detected my original driver. Thank you for your help.

SOURCE: I upgraded from win XP to Win 7 for my dell

This PC is not recommended by Dell for upgrade to Vista or Windows 7. However, it may still be possible to get it running. You will need to collect the drivers from the individual manufacturers of the parts concerned.

The Network Card is a Broadcom 57xx but you do not specify the exact model of Optiplex GX280 so you will need to check the precise version. Grab the Drivers from here

Audio is an ADI 198x Soundmax device and the drivers are trickier as I think it is pre AC97. I would have a search around for drivers or, better, get a cheap sound card with Windows 7 Drivers and use that instead. It's not like the onboard one is particularly great!

Video is some form of Radeon X300. You can use ATi Catalyst drivers for this which you can get from here

I formatted a dimension 8100 and I install window 7 32 bits now I can't upgrade my Ethernet or sound drivers


I suspect you already tried the drivers. Dell site only has drivers from 2001. You may have to roll back or purchase new cards. It's the same reason I can't use Win8.

IK Multimedia Production IK Multimedia Amplitube 2 Jimi Hendrix Edition Crossgrade/Upgrade (AT200UJHIN) won't play right on windows 7


Have you tried to use XP mode in Windows 7? In Windows 7 you can install XP mode and attempt to run the software from the virtualized environment. For the download for XP mode on Windows 7, go to this website: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx

Another thought that I have is that in Windows 7 - have you searched for an updated signed driver for your sound card? Depending on the model of computer you own - you can usually find the signed drivers at the manufacturers support website. Sometimes, changing the driver you are using for your sound card can also effect how your sound interfaces with different programs.

I hope this bit of information helps!
