I checked your link and I have no CD for soundblasters or Santacruz that I can find (Its not with the rest of the CDs that came with my comp anyway. I downloaded the Integrated ADI 198x Integrated Audio driver version A08 from dell (from 2003) which seemed to have installed and is working fine. The ADI 198x Integrated Audio version A22 driver which I found a link to from these forums and was from 2005 is apparently not supported be Dimension 8250 (according to the text when you click the install file). The install file and presentation looks exactly the same though, both say soundmax, both are from the same company. Why would one work but not the more recent one? I am going to attach both files to this post, one that worked (from 2003) and one that wont (from 2005) if you could shed any more light on this for me I would appreciate it.
