Uploader Notes

*** DON'T RUN SETUP.EXE!!!! **********

This file contains the extracted files from Compaq SofPaq 17311,

which is the Windows 2000 driver for the ESS Allegro on-board

sound chip in Presario 7470 and many others.

The self executing SofPaq did not seem to install the drivers even

though installation and reboot went as expected. I copied

these files while SofPaq executed, before it automatically erased them.

After that, I just went into System Devices and updated the driver,

pointing to this directory.

I suspect you really only need a1.inf & ES198X.sys, but since all

the files were in the directory when I updated my driver, I figured

better safe than sorry.

Sound works great now, hope it works for you too.

Good Luck,

Steve
