I'm building a new pc and running into an issue w/ the audio driver.
It's a Dell Optiplex 745. The audio driver is an:
Analog Devices ADI 198x Integrated HD Audio
It was taken directly from Dell's site and is the only audio driver avail.
Since downloading it, I get the following error message at each reboot:
"MAX4PNP has stopped working"
Other details are:
Problem Event Name: APPCRASH
Application Name: smax4pnp.exe
Application Version: 188.8.131.52

I can't seem to find any info online (yet), and the ADI tech support folk
suggested contacting Intel (makers of the motherboard).
I read the "Vista Drivers" thread, and see there is an Nvdia audio driver
available. Curious if that might be a better route to go than trying to use
the Dell one?
FWIW, the audio appears to be working, but something w/in the app.is
crashing at startup.
Thanks in advance,
