View Full Version : [all variants] Sound card driver

July 3rd, 2010, 11:23 PM
Perhaps the entirely wrong website to post on, but i've just switched back to Windows from Ubunutu and I desperately need some help finding some drivers.

I'm looking for a driver for my sound card, it's an ATI IXP SB400 AC'97 Audio Controller. I can't find anything anywhere and am stuck without sound.

I understand this isn't Ubunutu related, but this forum has always been very active and helpful in the past.

Sounds like a built-in card - I think IXP is what ATI calls/-ed their chipset-series before AMD stepped in. Have you looked at ALSA's matrix at alsa-project.org?
Anyway, what does

modprobe | grep snd-card-atiixp produce?
(If entering 'modprobe -i snd-card-atiixp' gives you working sound, you may have to have that module load explicitly during start-up. I think I should wait for someone better suited for explaining how, though.)
