Most likely, you have an integrated soundcard on the motherboard. Most laptops have an integrated, soldered chip on the motherboard. The best bet for an upgrade is buying a pcmcia or usb soundcard. A pcmcia souncard is easier to put into the sytstem and not think about it. Better external soundcards are connected via a usb cable. What makes this better, is that there is no electrical interference with the soundcard functions. Of course, this is only an audiophile purist issue. You can find an example of each card by looking at SoundBlaster laptop soundcards as a reference. They make both.

Sound drivers download


If it is a soundcard which is combined in the motherboard then find the name of the motherboard (use system information or speccy or siw) And then go to the motherboard manufacturers website and download from them direct.(Google!)
If it is a separate soundcard then find the name of the soundcard as before and go to the soundcard manufacturer's website and download

I can't find a soundmax Integrated Audio driver for Win7 Ultimate OS. I would like to have one before I upgrade my Win XP to Win7 since it was the recommendation of Win7 compatibility Advisor. Thanks...


First, shame on Microsoft! Second, many are having the same issue you are now experiencing. What has worked is installing the Vista driver package.


Click on the link below and download the file.
Go to device manager and uninstall the current driver for Soundmax Intergrated Audio soundcard.
Double click on the downloaded program to install your soundcard driver.
If the program has issues installing the driver (due to incompatibility with Windows 7) go back to the device manager and right-click on the Soundmax Integrated Audio soudcard
Select Update driver
When searching for the updated driver, direct the search (or select manual search) to the folder the file created when you double clicked on it (swsetup>Sp36530>i386>Vista)
This should enable your soundcard.

Best of luck!

Afetr upgrading WIN XP SP3, we have sound problem .Its not installed. please help


When you installed the service pack 3 it did not include a driver that matched your soundcard. You just need to reinstall the driver for your soundcard. If you don't know what driver you need you can download drivermax to find it for you. This is a free program and is available online. Hope this helps you.

No sound card detected even though I can hear CDs from PC


first check that you are having no problems with your soundcard, go to control panel>system>hardware>device manager and see if there is a yellow exclamtion mark next to the soundcard.. If there is then try updating the drivers for it, or uninstalling it by right clicking it and choose uninstall then reboot the computer, the soundcard will be picked up as new hardware and should be installed again. Before you do this though you need to be sure that you have a pci soundcard actually installed and not an onboard chipset soundcard. If you have an onboard soundcard then it may not be good enough for games to be played. A lot of games require a minimum type of soundcard. Check to see what you have. Go to control panel as explained and write down the model number of your soundcard. Then check the minimum requirements for the game you are trying to play.

Speakers not working


It's not your speakers that you need to get the drivers for, but rather the soundcard inside your computer.

you can approach this one of two ways- use the driver discs that came with your system, or download upgraded drivers from the soundcard manufacturer's website.


Downloading Drivers-

If you have a prebuilt made by a major manufacturer (such as Dell, eMachines, HP, Compaq, or Acer), and haven't added a soundcard since then, you will need to go to their website, and download audio drivers from there.

if you have a Custom-built (otherwise known as a Clone) computer, for example, one put together by a specialty computer store,- you will need to find out what your soundcard is, and go to the soundcard manufacturer's website. (if you are having trouble figuring out what the model is, look inside your computer- it should be labeled on the card itself, usually engraved into the circuit board, or on a white sticker)

If you are using an onboard (Integrated) soundcard, go to your motherboard manufacturer's website, and they should have a driver listing there.
