  1. Hi, during a system cleanup I accidentally deleted the soundmax card and I don't know how to get audio back. If I go to control panel- audio- it says there is no driver found.
    Please help.

    Thanks LookinAround for your message. You're right the driver I linked to before is not the correct one because it's not for Soundmax HD chipsets. We've been looking more deeply for supported versions of the driver since direct downloads from Analog Devices are non-existent.

    Here's one of the more recent Soundmax HD drivers we could find so far:

    And we are adding more as we go:

    Kudos to Erik for looking into it.
