Best Sound Driver SQ2500 and XP?

What are the best Sound Drivers for the Aureak SQ2500 and Win XP?

Before I experiment with the old drivers for WIN98 that came with my SQ2500 (aureal 8830 chipset), I thought I would check who has done so already.

The soundcard works with the XP supplied drivers but sound volume is poor.

Every working computer must be improved .... or replaced ...

  1. <font color=green>I answered your reply in the other post about low volume, but I'll copy it here for your convienence.</font color=green>

    What's up Jeff:
    I believe I got a solution for you. Double-click the volume icon in the system tray. Go to Options > Properties > Adjust volume for <b>Other</b> > AC97 Controls

    Check all the boxes under "Show the following volume controls". Click OK.

    Raise all the sliders up, especially for Front/Rear speakers.
