  1. hi,

    (first post)

    I have onboard realtek AC'97 audio. With this comes soundman control application for effects etc.

    can i change this for some other application eg. soundmax.

    I have used soundmax on other mobo/audio combinations before and like it. I don't like soundman.

    i google for "soundmax on ac'97" and it shows some drivers including soundmax but i'm not sure if that's ok as they seem to be a few years old.

    hope you can help.

    Go ahead and install the older SoundMax drivers. Your system will tell you if it will accept them or not
