    I've just loaded Windows 7 on an old Advent 6522 but have no sound as there is no driver installed. Can anyone give me a hand getting round this problem?

    Many thanks

    Alex

    Hi Alex,
    I've posted the audio drivers for download but they only go up to XP.. Now I have heard of others having some success running the driver in compatibility mode so it might be worth trying. To be brutally honest though I wouldn't have much hope fo getting this to work but you never know...

    You, my friend, are a genius. This driver still works with Windows 7 and so far I have tested it with web based sounds and CDs. I'm assuming it will work with DVD's but I still have some work to do on that front!

    Once again many thanks for your help.

    Alex
