    Hey there!It’s an excellent help, i just want to ask you something ’cause my notebook plays the sound in speakers and earphones at the same time, so i’d like to know if there’s something i can do to stop listening speakers when my earphones are connected… And thanks again man!

    This also worked for my VGC-RB60G Viao desktop. However, the sound isn’t at full volume but it is better than having no sound at all i guess. Thanks, i have been searching for a bios update but this worked instead.

  • Lalit

    This has really fixed my problem

  • Geoffrey

  • Paul

    I am an IT technician, had numerous problems with sigmatel, in short it is shit

  • Robert

    Alright this is tad bit annoying. Well you see I run last xp (the hackers version of xp/vista) anyways I first installed this driver and it worked like a charm, nearly cried with joy.

    Well after a few weeks I looked to optimize my video to get a game to run a little more effectively and by doing so it jacked up my graphics badly. Now whenever I uninstall the driver and reinstall using this program it never seems to run, keeps giving me that blasted can not start crud. If anyone knows how to get it to work please let mek now asap thank you.

  • Hey all, I have a real hard question, lets see if anyone out there can answer this one. I am an entertainer, I use my new Dell 1525 laptop for some of my music. However I have a Sigma tel High Definition sound card, but I have no bass adjustments. According to Microsoft, and Sigma Tel It should be there but nope not a thing, and it makes my music sound a little tinny without bass, I have tried 7 different Sigma Tell audio drivers and still nothing. Am I doing something stupid, and just not getting it???? Any help will be appreciated.

  • Karani

    There is a proceedure to find sound drivers of different manufacturers in a compressed form. From that, you can unzip and have Windows XP find the driver specific to your system. See There is a high chance you will get the drivers you are looking for.
