  • I have soundmax intrgrated digital audio hardware too(using Asus P5RD1-VM motherboard). But when i doing a force install on that driver, is device is ok. The problem is here, when i install the device software, the windws got error for the sound driver, after that i can't install the sound driver anymore even i uninstall it and re-install again.

  • I can confirm that the issue happens on more than one computer. I have a Toshiba Qosmio F20-155 notebook and the automatically-installed audio driver does not produce any sound. Vista refuses other drivers, and if forced, Vista will fire a BSOD, die, and eventually fail to reboot unless the driver is removed from Safe mode.

  • Hello,  I have an IBM laptop z60M (2529-EAU) with the integrated High Definition Audio Device that doesn't work and MS Win Vista Business.    My high def audio device shows "working correctly" and the speaker has an "x" also just as Kwaya is seeing.  I have gone to Microsoft and we performed upgrades to the driver from MS Windows Vista but still no sound.  They sent me to IBM support and IBM support tells me that I need to get a high def audio device driver from soundmax.  Does anyone have any ideas on where I get that driver or have one?  Thanks....

    When I use this zip file to install my audio driver,it warns like this"smwdm.sys is missing". How could it be,and how to resolve it?
