    What audio device is in the PanP5?

    Hi, I'm dualbooting my PanP5 with Xubuntu 12.04 and Windows Server 2012, which works rather well by the way on the 4 year old laptop. It's using the stock Microsoft audio driver for the audio device in the laptop, but I'm finding a few audio apps don't work and most support forums say I need to verify I have the appropriate manufacturer drivers. The S76 site has drivers available for Windows XP and Vista, but the files are just called Panp4_Audio_windows.exe which doesn't tell me much. Can someone from S76 lookup and post the exact audio chipset or device setup in the panP5 laptops?

    Thanks --

    I believe the Vista driver will do what you need it to. The audio in our laptops is built into the chipset, and is only referred to as "Intel HD Audio".
