were integrated with the modem. Most aren't.
Windows XP Pro; Pent4; 512ram;
Dell #8200; Sound Card = Turtle Beach/Santa Cruz/R44732 drivers.
After installing sound card and latest drivers from Dell, I ran the software test program that indicated software installed correctly and hardware functioning properly - - - but no sound. Speakers check O.K., no problem in system folder.
After many hours and by accident, I installed the modem drivers even though I do not use a modem - - -
then sound came on.
QUESTION: is it unique to this sound card or is it always required to have modem drivers installed to have a sound card function ?
