    Question The SOUNDMAX Audio Driver did not load

    Hi guys,

    I've been updating my XP images and i am having some probs with the SoundMAX audio drivers.
    One of the systems has a DQ35MP m/board, and after syspreprepping and imaging, it comes up with the error 'The SoundMAX audio driver did not load. You may need to reinstall SoundMAX.' This error comes in the form of a message window, with the tick box option 'Do not show this error message again'.
    However, sound is working fine, and there are no 'Unknown Devices'.
    I wouldn't worry too much about this, but when you do actually select to not show the message again, it only applies to that profile, and as I use Deepfreeze this will get to annoying to leave.

    Has anyone come across this before, and is there a fix?

    Thanks.

    Is the driver installing during the sysprep minisetup or have you run the installer prior to running sysprep, (or are you not using sysprep?).
    I think this is the same hardware I had some problems with, I think that the actual installer you would run manually will install a service on the PC to coexsit with the actual driver because letting the driver install through minisetup will complete, and looks ok in the device manager, but doesn't work. If you create the image after a manual install of the driver, then create the image it should work.

    Hi Morganw, thanks for the reply.
    The driver is installing during the sysprep mini setup. I will try what you have suggested and see what happens.

    Thanks.
