Realtek FTP is known to be sluggish. Links are working here. Try all three one after a another (.ZIP or if you prefer .EXE)

No, he was right, I just edited the links before you tried them :)

I should have said it sorry

When realtek has a newer driver, they directly delete the older ones, so the links should be directly changed... :P

I try to update this as much as possible, but sometimes I haven't got the time for it, or I just forget about it :)

hi,

your forum has been a useful resource since I stumbled upon it yesterday. respecT!

I'm using a satellite p30 and have installed the TVS. Right now I'm updating to latest realtek ac97 drivers..

- those are now at 386 not 385 so you may want to update links again...

the reason i'm googling for info on toshiba sound is that in my swedish XP the sound control panel lets me choose some semi-useful configurations of speaker-systems (like headphones, 5.1 or 7.1 etc) but doesnt allow me to edit the list nor does it have a 2.1 option. Initially I wanted to find a means for adding the 2.1 configuration but have so far failed.

on top of the already excessively useless configurational chaos I managed to get Sound Effect Manager to work (last realtek install perhaps??) which gives me another set of equaliser and set-up options I dont really need to use.

after 30minutes of tweaking I now have pretty good sound, but I also have 3 controls (4, countin AC3) for sound output... it seems like serious overkill. :)

do any of you have any good suggestions of what to delete and how to streamline the audio setup? Sorry to barge in on your forum like this but you seem like the only people I've seen so far who posess the skills.. :)

School, Study & Job are first, then RealLife, then LV2Go. It's just a hobby... but then for me it's sometimes exactly the other way around :)
