    Hi guys! Ill make this as short as possible: I installed win vista x64. I got 3com gigabit lom installed using device manager. When I try to do this for my Soundmax AD 1980/AD1888, nothing but fail happens. First my device manager says under sound controllers "ATI T200 unified AVStream driver" installed on RADEON 9600 series, 'this device cannot start.' When I try to update the drivers using the x64 bit soundmax drivers i do update driver software>browse my computer for driver software>let me pick from a list....>have disk>browse> now when i select the soundmax 64 subfolder SMAXWDM/W2K_XP it autoselects smwdmAL3.inf. there are also smwdmCH5, SIS, VI3. no matter which one i select, it wont install: "Windows encountered a problem installing the driver software for your device,Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. the driver may be corrupted or missing (code 39). Now ive installed vista x64 before and had sound a long time ago, and i know i got the soundmax drivers to work. I might be over looking something small, but any help as to how to get my sound working would be great guys. Oh and I have UAC turned off if that makes a difference. THANKS GUYS!!

    tried that link, and the setup.exe said there was a file missing. When I used device manager to install manually, it gave me "this device cannot start" (code 10). Any suggestions? and i do have onboard audio turned on in bios.
