The computer has a SigmaTel sound car. The Creative Soundblaster Audigy
advanced MB is just an extra software package that was an option with the
computer. So, the Sigmatel driver gets installed, then the Audigy software.
Dell has not updated the Sigmatel sound driver on their website since its
release, therefore that is no help.. I already have the most current driver.
Also, Sigmatel doesn't supply any drivers on their own website, they just
refer you back to Dell (or whoever made your computer).
Are you suggesting I remove both of these, then only install the
SoundBlaster software? I don't know if it will work like that, I'm pretty
sure it's just extra software and doesn't have drivers for the Sigmatel card.
