Need OLDER SoundMax Drivers - Where to Download?

2008-02-29, 20:53 PM
I've constantly had issues with my sound card and I do believe it is because of the new driver.  My old problem was that with the new driver, my microphone would not activate until I plugged in an external mic and then unplugged it.  After a lot of trouble, I went on to just format my laptop and then re-installed everything fresh.  However, the problem still exists after a clean format.  I did not have this problem with the original shipping driver but do not have a copy of that driver.  Does lenovo have an archive of older drivers somewhere?

Super! That solved it - someone should test these drivers further.  I doubt I'm the only one affected - especially if the driver gave me the same problem on a clean system format ...

but on another note, I'm having issues that I hope this system format will resolve; i had problems where the driver randomly gets disabled at boot.  Restarting again normally fixed it, but it was EXTREMELY irritating.  I had this problem on clean installs (per the instructions in the readme files) for both the old driver and the latest release.

Let's see how this plays out for now ...

If you have a factory installation you can find all drivers and applications which were installed from the factory in C:\SWTOOLS.

Re: Need OLDER SoundMax Drivers - Where to Download?

Unfortunately, I bought my laptop with the Vista license. Later I manually downgraded to XP.
So is there another way how to obtain older versions of software / drivers? If there are older installations of sound drivers, there could be installations of other software / drivers as well.
I was looking for it via the ftp mentioned above, but I was not succesful.

Thanks
Michal

Hello Andy,
I'm having the same issue, I need an older driver.  I am an IBM Global services tech, and I still can't get my hands on the original release of the WinXP NVS 140M driver, for the T61.  (Only the original release, 6.14.11.0133 from 5/18/2007, supports a certain video accessory card we have been using on the T60's)
 
I searched all of the video driver releases in:  ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/pc/pccbbs/mobiles/ , and the only one listed in allfiles.txt that's still actually in the folder is 6.14.10, for the N100 on a Lenovo3000.
 
Does anyone know if there's another location for archived driver releases?   Or, anyone with a first-run T61 who has that driver?
- Don

I finally decided I'd chase down why I had to do this with my microphone using the advanced dock.

It would work with placyback, but not record until I unplugged the microphone from the advanced

dock and plugged it in to the laptop itself.  Then when I plugged it back in to the advanced dock

it would work.  This only happened with record. Playback was ok.  Very wierd.  But I decided

to chase it down.  Going back to the older driver in this thread fixed the problem.  I can't believe

Lenovo hasn't fixed this!

Hello,

 

The link above seems to be broken, can it be reactivated?

I am in the same position where my SPDIF output does not seem to work with the latest drivers and I cannot seem to find any older versions online.


Thanks.
