SL300 - XP64 - Audio Driver for Conexant HD SmartAudio 221

2012-12-05, 18:02 PM

Hi,

I absolutely hate Vista,7 and 8 and love XP.

I always used the 32bit version but the 64bit version would be much faster for my system...

Thats the reason why I installed it.

The problem however is that I can't find anywhere a driver for the sound device (Conexant 221) for WinXP64.

 

Could anyone please help me?

Thanks a lot!!!

Hi, Aqua

 

I did some browsing around Lenovo Support and found this driver. I'm not sure if you've already tried to install this one, and I apologize if you have. The driver does not list if it is for x32 or x64, which leads me to believe that it should work on both systems. 

 

Hope it helps,

 

Adam

Hi Gamloi7,

thanks a lot for your help.

Unfortunately, its the standard driver that only works for XP-32Bit

However, I found this driver here: http://www.x-drivers.ru/catalog/drivers/sound_cards/companies/conexant/models/hd_audio/14663.html

 

It supports almost every function, sound and mic is working, but the front jacks for headphones etc. are not working.

Hi, Aqua

 

Sorry to hear that the driver doesn't work for your system. Glad to hear you found one that solves most of your issues, though!

 

Best,

 

Adam
