Uploader Notes

This driver is for a Compaq Presario 5000 with an onboard ESS Allegro (chip stamped ESS Allegro ES1989S) sound card. This is a friend's PacBell DSL box that came preloaded with WinME and she wanted to upgrade to Win2000. If you're doing the same thing with the same box, this worked great for me.

"Didn't recognize the driver as a proper one when installing it manually,

using the setup gives an error message and stop the install process.

The computer is a COMPAQ 5000 series, runing W2000 SP2 and the ESS 1989S

is clearly visible on the motherboard as a sound chipset.

So, I Don't recommend it, at least for the COMPAQ 5000 series."

"I downloaded 2 windows 2000 drivers, burned them to cd. This one was skipped during driver update and the other one I downloaded (ES1988_S E1167_Sign_5761437) worked."

"Yes, this did work on a Compaq Presario w/ Win 2K installed. But you can't use the setup -see other comments from Mike T.- installing manually works!"
