  1. i unfortunately have onboard audio and its the ac 97 audio. I went to the drivers page on techspot and found that there were updates for it, however there seem to be many versions. Does it matter which one? are they all the same? obviously i determined which were xp versus vista but are the ones for xp a fix for everyone who has this or do i need the one that matches my mobo?

    its best to match your motherboard first, and if that gives you problems, then start hunting, starting with a generic version, then other mobo versions..

    Isn't it easier to go to your mobo manufacturer's site and download it from there?

    actually i figured that out and updated it. for whatever reason i didnt think the onboard audio driver was in any way connected with mobo, but a lightbulb came on =). thanks
