Soundmax Hd Audio Utility
The generic drivers provided by Microsoft do not provide maximum functionality. The card does not support full duplex operation in Windows 7; meaning I cannot record the speaker audio, or what I hear coming out the computer. Full duplex operation is available in XP, so I know the card is capable. The SoundMax webstie pointed me to my computer's manufacture for driver support; as they do not release drivers. I hope Dell will release a Windows 7 compatible driver. I understand Dell does not have too, however that would make me an unhappy customer. So, this is my appeal.
Please Dell, release a Windows 7 compatible driver. I have tried the Vista drivers, and no cigar. I don't know about 'Soundmax' but there have been a lot of problems with Sigmatel/IDT sound drivers from Microsoft on Dell integrated audio systems (and on all vendor's SigmaTel on one IDT version that Microsoft released in their downloads - and one problem was identical to what you state that headphone works but not the rear speaker output). It's best to use Dell supplied drivers for full functionality. I have seen a lot of posts from users that tried different vendor's drivers or generic 'retail' drivers from IDT and none worked or worked correctly. I can't speak directly for Dell but there will be drivers for some systems and no drivers for other systems.

Keep in mind Dell, like other PC vendors, is in the business of selling new PC's. Most users, based on reports on this forum, of older systems that are not supported by Dell for Vista or Win 7 have installed new Sound Cards that are Vista/Win 7 compatible in order to have sound. One issue with drivers has to do with internal functionality of the sound chip. On older systems there was no 'automatic' detection of anything plugged into a port, such as the front panel headphone or mic, or one of the rear I/O connectors. On new HD Audio systems there is automatic sensing (detection). The new HD Audio drivers assume the automatic sensing is available and the drivers are set up for that.
If the new drivers are installed in an older system that does not support the new HD Audio standard there can be functionality issues in the I/O ports. If Dell supports a device for Vista, the Vista drivers should work as Windows 7 is basically Vista with modifications (and hopefully improvements). If there is a Vista 32 bit version available from Dell that should work on Windows 7 32 bit.
Same way with the 64 bit. The Dell Vista 32 bit SigmaTel drivers for my Dimension E510 worked perfectly with Win 7 RC1 32 bit. I have a (retail) Intel motherboard in my home built system that has the SigmaTel audio. The IDT HD Audio drivers (SigmaTel) that Intel has for this motherbaord are listed for both Vista and Windows 7. Nargis serial dd national wikipedia full.
