    This solution is for AD1888 Audio Chipsets with Windows Vista x64 Only
    ==============================================

    I have been searching for some time for a driver for the ADI AD1888 Onboard
    Soundmax surround sound card on my ASUS K8V-MX Motherboard.
    After a great deal of time trying to fix the problem of sound being erratic
    crackling excessive echo etc. reading a number of reviews of the motherboard
    stating that the onboard sound was AC-97 Compatible, I had the idea of
    trying an AC-97 Driver package for Windows Vista x64 (64bit)
    at 1st I thought that it did not work as I heard nothing from the speakers,
    but I had the Audio icon in the taskbar stating :-
    Volume : 60
    Speakers
    Realtec AC-97 Audio for Via (R) Audio Controller

    I switched the Speaker plug to the Line out and hey presto! I now have
    decent sound but not surround support.
    If you have a similar problem with Vista64
    you can obtain the driver package at
