For several months now I've been having an audio problem. The problem PC is an older Jetway V266b running XP SP2. The O/S keeps identifying the embedded audio as a C-media product, which it isn't, its VIA/Avance using the VIA 8233A chip in VIA's K266A chipset.
I know thw audio works as I can dual boot the PC into a clean XP SP1 O/S and the audio is identified as VIA/Avance and works OK.
I can't roll back to SP1 as too many changes have been made to the system. I know I could reinstall the OS or install a separate sound card but I'd rather fix the problem rather than work round it.
I've read the postings starting at http://www.daniweb.com/forums/thread25517.html and followed the instructions carefully but so far no joy. The problem has become personal know *!"%$$! and I really want to beat it. If I could find the location where the OS gets its C-media reference from I'd be in with a better chance, so any assistance would be gratefully received.
