Default Sound Card updating drivers help.

When i goto download the driver i come here

<http://www.soundcard-drivers.com/drivers/247/247464.htm> ..

It seems like thats the latest driver for my soundcard? So i go and download the driver from the provided link, and during the middle of the installation this error message pops up

"Driver not found! Reboot your system, and run this setup again."

So i reboot, do it again, and it still has the same error...

My sound card is listed as this:

DEVICE:
Name: SoundMAX Digital Audio
Manufacturer ID: 1
Product ID: 100
Type: WDM
Default Device: Yes

Version: 5.12.0001.4010 (English)
Date: 1/13/2004 16:40:28

Try going to your motherboards website and downloading it. There might be a problem with the driver from that website.

Look for the logo and product number on the motherboard inside the case.. Then google the product number.

Get the sound driver from the manufacturers site itÂ’s a lot better that way.
