Do I have hardware-failure?

I have tried a lot of other SoundMax drivers, they usually install nearly all the way until the installation stops and says something like "driver couldn't be found"...
So far trying to update the nVidia audio driver has been in vain. I'll try and keep looking...
Sometimes the audio works just fine.

Short of contacting Compaq\HP and maybe they can supply a drivers disk for that model (Highly unlikely give the age of the system) I think this is going to be the only way to completely finish this system completely.

Do you have any preference to manufacturer?
What kind of layout would you like 3.1, 3.1, 5.1, 7.1
What would your budget be for a replacement?
I can try to find some suggestions for you.

I really don't have any preferences as to which make it is. I figure that it should be at least 16-bit, but I don't know much about the layout?

Standard 2 with a power connection?
3 with a sub
5 2 front, 2 back and a sub
It will make a difference which card you purchase.

Thanks for your suggestions for cards, I will try and look for something like that. I've heard many good things about SoundBlaster, but maybe I'll rather go with a less expensive brand since it's an old system.

It's been quite interesting trying out some of the many Linux flavours out there - Great with all the alternatives, but it makes deciding which one to install that much harder...
