    I wiped Vista and clean installed XP. I need an XP version of the audio drivers for the Sigmatel device that comes on the Emachines T3604 motherboard. I went on the Emachines website, and the only drivers there were for Vista, as it was the originally installed OS. I also asked two live support agents, and they cannot help because they say they have no XP drivers in their database.

    At first, I accidentally installed the vista drivers and I got sound, but when I went to the Sigmatel option in control panel, it said "Unable to connect to COM interface." And when I added the volume icon to taskbar, I would turn the volume up or down and it would make the beep noise like when you don't have an audio device installed. I uninstalled the vista drivers and have been looking for an XP version.

    I will be your best friend if you find the seemingly nonexistent drivers I'm looking for.

    Thanks for replying. I ended up using Driver Genius to install a driver called IDT; I think thats who Sigmatel is.
    I still had a beeping noise when changing the volume, but I got rid of that through the registry.

    Yeah it's hard to find the Sigmatel driver for your version since the E-machine website doesn't show the xp drivers. The IDT driver is the same as the ones used on the gateway model link I gave to you if you ever need to save the drivers. Glad to help :)
