    I want to upgrade my Dell Dimension 3000 desktop from XP to Vista.

    When I used the Upgrade Advisor, it says that it has no information on my Dell's intergrated SoundMAX Intergrated Digital Audio device.

    Does anyone know where I can download the Vista driver for this?

    Thanks!

    I think if you do a Windows Update after installation it will find the drivers. It does on my Dell Optiplex 270s anyway!

    There is a Vista 32bit driver for the Analogue Devices ADI 198X on the Dell support pages under "Dimension 3000". Analogue Devices make the Soundmax products so we can assume it is ok. It will only be available from Windows Update if it has been approved. I can't say if that process has taken place yet.

    ...and it doesn't work, so my old Dell is all Vista-d up but without sound.
    Doh!
