Additional Notes

I have the Aureal 8830 working just fine on both my XP Professional and Windows 2003 server. I have had the XP driver (which is the same I used for my 2003 install the other day), since I upgraded my system back in 2000. No sound problems whatsoever. It has volume and the advance volume options. Never a problem. I guess because I had the driver loaded when I upgraded ME to XP years ago.

Just extract the zip file to a directory and then run the add/remove hardware and specify the location of the extracted files. I ignored the warning that the driver was not for 2003 (which I am sure XP will warn) and when ahead and loaded the driver. Again after a reboot, all worked great. I am a network engineer/MCSE etc, so I take chances as I can always get back.

  3. Click the Update Driver button and follow the instructions.

In most cases, you will need to reboot your computer in order for the driver update to take effect.
