SoundMax audio driver did not load after returning from StandBy.

2009-04-21, 16:08 PM
After my computer returns from StandBy, it shows me this message. "The SoundMax audio driver did not load. You may need to reinstall SoundMAX". I have downloaded and installed the latest driver that was supposed to fix this issue on Windows XP T61. Is there another solution?

Hi,

 

Welcome to the forum.

 

am wondering, which model, machine name and OS that you're using?

 

Pls do not reveal your serial number.

Hi,

 

Does this driver fix your audio trouble?

No. This driver did not fix the audio trouble. Also, even if the driver loads sometimes, there is no sound from the speakers. I checked all the wire connections. This has started happening only recently.

Hi,

 

I wanted to confirm, that this issue occurs also to me, and started happening recently. Also the driver sometimes does not start when simply booting clean (not returning from StandBy). I'm not sure,  but I think this started happening after some driver update (I do upgrade my drivers when lenovo updates them hoping they'll fix some of the annoying glitches, but this is what I usually get...).

 

My machine is: lenovo t61 7664-19G

And I also have: windows XP

 

If someone more tech-able would like to investigate this, I would be happy to supply all the details.
