oh you did remember sp2 and direct x update before the ATI driver ?
won't install otherwise.
what i am trying to do is find a english nec laptop where the laptop meets or has teh same spec as yours , may mean looking at many different models but there has to be one. i can't see them doing just that model for the jap market only, its listed under another model number for another country i just have to find it.
So, The ADI provided by NEC site didn't work either.
In fact it's a SP1 windows, you were just mentioning the the fact that I had to have the direct X9c (which I have).
So now I'm downloading SP2, but It will take some time (in fact 5 hours more or less, the network is so low I don't know why).
For the Omega thing, I haven't install it because I don't understand... it is a video driver, so why for ?
yes install xp sp2 , don't go to sp3 just yet, seems to add to problems with downgrading.
take your time i am trying to find info on your ATI chipset.
this is getting to me a little and i will find the answer one way or the other.
spec say ADI ( won't load )
conexant ( won't load )
realtek loads ( won't work )
id string say's ATI
you have one of those problems that at the moment has me stumped , i don't like to be stumped so will read my backside off now and see if i can find the answer.
ok i have had enough of reading for now , been at it for over two hours.
alot of people looking for Analog Devices AD1981B(L) @ ATI SB400 - AC'97 Audio Controller PCI
almost all in japan.
what i have just done is rip apart a dell ad1981b driver and when i say ripped apart i mean just that.
if you look on the bottom of this post you will find a winzip file.
download it and fully unpack it.
now go in to device manager , call up the trouble some sound.
right click and select update driver.
browse to the folder you unpacked highlight any files listed and click next.
lets see if windows will do the work.
this is the wdm driver only, no fancy install package , no flash anything just the windows driver for the AD1981B taken from a dell.
So, you can stop your download now.
I've completed the download on my part, and installed the ADSB24, and you know what ? I hear !
I don't know how you have find this page but I greatly thank you for finding it. I never thought It would be this hard to find a sound driver, but you never gave up even if it means to go and translate every little word of Japanese.
A great thanks to you ! You're a savior.
I think this is exactly what I need, I gave up trying to translate all the japanese pages. could you put that zip file of the drivers for Japanese NEC up for me to download from your link? I need drivers for:
Analog Devices AD1981B(L) @ ATI SB400 - AC'97 Audio Controller PCI
ATI Radeon Xpress 200M (RS400M) Video Adapter
driver seems to have gone walk abouts.
i changed host twice since i done this.
i will try and track down that zip file in the backups i have.
i will post a link later for you
That had the drivers I needed, they worked! You are awesome. Thanks!!
i also have the same problem
i have NEC versapro VY17F/LX-W , also no sound
can i also ask for drivers to make sound work
I alos use AC 97 sound driver in my PC . It have no problem and install auto.
Its working and sound is best .
Please could you unlock the zipfile with driver CD for the NEC VERSA PRO VY17F/LV-U so that I could download it.
I have read through this thread and I think it may solve my problem.
No problem file is now unlocked and will remain unlocked for 24 hours.
