Uploader Notes

Driver from an install CD for Intel MB. When installed, it prevents SOME ONBOARD soundcards (mainly in ASUS MB's) to produce cracking/popping noise. I tested it on ASUS A7V8X-X's sound and it really stopped the cracking noise.

HOW TO INSTALL

1. unzip

2.make system restore point(just in case

3.uninstall old driver(from "add remove programs")

2.run setup.exe

If during the instalation there are files missing, copy the missing files from your original drivers to the folder they should be(in some of the folders of this driver).

Good Luck!
