Since windows me can kiss my ass, i reformatted to windows 98se (my emachine doesn't like handling xp considering it's a dinosaur) which my comp did not like. Under device manager i constantly saw "pci audio card" with the tell tale ! next to it. I looked everywhere for this thing, on driverguide too. This is it, I promise ) dload it, unzip to your desktop, click setup, and the rest is history.
