Hi there,

I am not being offered Service Pack 1 via Windows Update, and I was wondering why... I have the AC'97 Audio as my audio device, and I know that there are driver conflicts with it, but I have a greater version than that described here

At that website it says that it will not offer you SP1 if you have "For x86-based computers: Alcxwdm.sys - version or earlier", but in the picture shown below, I have version which is greater than the number stated on the Microsoft Webpage.

I was just able to download a driver update from Windows Update for AC'97, but am still not offered SP1 that is why I ask.

Can anyone shed some light on why I am not being offered SP1?

As far as I'm aware windows update will not list SP1 as long as there are conflicts, wether you have the latest version or not. If there is a conflict it just won't be listed there.

What driver you should exactly get for your soundchip to be able to get SP1 through the windows updater I don't exactly know however. A list of downloads available for windows you can find here and it says its been last updated 15's feb. 2008
