"Finally This is a driver for the card CMI8330 that really works.I tried several others here and none of the worked. You have to unzip it in a folder inside the c:\windows\system32\ and then execute devmgmt.msc and then update driver for each of the functionalities that comes with the sound card(uninstalling those who couldnt be updated, and then windows will reinstall them

"you need a file called cmpci.cat as well. i found it inside another c-media download - the cmi8338. you have to unzip the above file to your hard drive and locate the cmpci.cat file in the same folder. then go into device manager and update the driver on each listed cmi8330 item. reboot after all updates and all should be ok."
