This is a custom driver for integrated Analog Devices' ADI sound chips (Types AD1984, AD1986(B-Type only, A-Type works unstable), AD1986(Both A & B)
This driver is a mix of files from different driver packages for this device but it works fine and made specially for Windows Vista - it's not compatible with previous Windows Versions. Mostly files inside was provided by AsusTEK driver packages of different versions so this driver is mostly recommended for Asus motherboards users.
Tested by me in Vista (SP1) with
AD1986B - Fine
AD1986A - rare crashes may occur.
Recommended for Vista use and more preferrable than 188.8.131.5200 official driver.
Note: Use manual installation from device manager.
Note: Front panel works fine.

DriverGuide.com - Using DriverGuide's Installer
DriverGuide's installer software (Windows only) simplifies the driver installation process. It safely downloads and verifies your driver and then assists in the installation of it.
You may notice that the file size of the installer software is much smaller than the file size of your actual driver. The reason is that first the installer setup file is downloaded, and then the installer software does the work of fetching your driver from our fastest download server.
The installer setup file has been certified safe by leading-class virus and malware scanners.
Sometimes anti-virus software can report false positives. If this happens to you, we encourage you to submit the file you download to VirusTotal (a free, independent service which identifies malicious content) where you will see dozens of other anti-virus scanners report the file is perfectly safe.
The installer setup file may include a purely optional advertising offer which you are free to decline. We only work with trusted advertising partners.
Note: Windows only. Mobile, Mac OS and Linux users can choose other download options by deselecting the installer checkbox below the download button.
