    Question Which AC97 driver on the MSI site?

    I just reinstalled Windows after adding RAID to my box and of course I lost my MSI driver disk

    When I go the MSI site, and choose K7D Master, it doesn't list any audio drivers. When I select onboard audio, I'm presented with these two choices:

    Realtek Avance ALC AC'97 Audio Drivers
    -
    Sigmatel AC'97 Sound Drivers

    Which one do I use?

    Not sure it may vary depending on the version of your board, but if you look close enough on the motherboard itself, you should be able to see which chip it is on the motherboard.

    If you have any trouble with the drivers you get from MSI, check out this thread. It was an interesting thread on the subject of drivers, specifically for Windows 2003. In that thread, someone posted a link to some newer Realtek drivers and they worked really well.
