I have a Dell Dimension 4700 which the SoundMAX Integrated Digital Audio system is built into the Motherboard. This computer was given to be and one day, I lost my sound altogether. I have finally got back my computer sounds, but can hardly hear anything I try to play. I want to record some of my own music, but when I try to set-up the music program to record, my computer immediately goes black screen or blue screen. The black screen, the computer will restart, the blue screen I can't even shut the computer off. I have to unplug the whole system, wait a few mins, plug it back in, then it will restart. When I first recieved the computer, the sound worked okay. After I reinstalled the files for the SoundMAX, I can't seem to get it to work properly. I have the Audacity program, as well as one I just installed. Even the one I just installed does the same thing. So I'm thinking it is a computer problem, not a software problem.

Does anyone possibly know what the problem is, so I can fix it? I have done a system scan, and everything seemed okay, but towards the end DMA popped up. Are there configuration settings to set-up SoundMAX? If so, Ican't find them. Or would I have to write a specific .ini, .bat file to do it?

Thanks for any help you can give me.

Sounds like you might have the wrong driver, or it got corrupted. Is this the one you used?:
Installation instructions are at the bottom of the page, click on the +

Here's the page with all of the drivers for that model
