Use Windows XP Driver for Windows 7 on Dell Dimension 4600

RE: Dell Dimension 4600, Windows 7, new install, missing audio driver

Use the Windows XP audio driver to install a missing ‘Multimedia Audio Controller’ in Windows 7 Device Manager:

  1. Download the Analog Devices ADI 198x Integrated Audio driver from Dell’s support page.
  2. Extract to folder (a new? right-click menu option)
  3. “Locate and install driver software manually” in Device Manager.

The device manager screen will refresh the drivers list automatically.  SoundMAX Integrated Digital Audio is created in Sound, video and game controllers.
