CRYSTAL CS4299 AUDIO DRIVER
Attempting to update it by right clicking “update driver”, selecting “choose from a list of drivers” and selecting “have disk” results in a “device not fully compatible with this driver” error with CS Did a Directsound test and everything checks out. Crashdance22 , Aug 11, I have attached below the driver for each chip in. All I can suggest otherwise is try to “force” the correct driver by ignoring the message that says “device not fully compatible with this driver” and “force” Windows to accept that driver. Should I be concerned over the fact that the chipset doesn’t support hardware buffering though?

Right click on the sound device listed in Unknown Devices and select “Device Details”. I updated the drivers using the same directory and Windows found a INF file.
I have attached below the driver for each chip in. This seems to be a great site for quality assistance, thanks!
The first listed CS driver does not give me this error, however, attempting to install all three drivers results in a DLL error and an illegal program operation. Looking at the specs cs44299 try and find the motherboard http: The chip is a Crystal Audio AC’97 compatible device, and after much searching I managed to find 3 different sets of drivers that might work.
I seem to have some potentially working drivers here I didn’t see any “incompatible hardware” errorsbut I’m having different problems with all audiio of them.
I ran setup and restarted the machine, and the device now appears as “Crystal Audio Codec” in Device Manager with an exclamation icon. Crashdance22Sep 10, I easily got the video drivers installed and working, but am stumped on the sound drivers.
As to the hardware buffering, it shouldn’t be a problem, and the only way around it is to install a PCI sound card that has hardware buffering. After a restart the device still has the yellow icon in the Device Manager and is, of course, unusable. I’ve done this with sound drivers and modem drivers when things got rough.

I’ll post back with an update when I get a chance. It is in fact a VIA chip, especially since none of the ce4299 numbers appear on the Crystal download page.
I’m sure this will work as soon as I figure out how to completely clean out the Realtek drivers. Crashdance22Aug 14, Since you’re running Win98, I’m way out of practice and can’t offer any pointed accurate advice, I haven’t even seen Win98 running on a PC in at least years I run setup, restart, and now the device appears as such: I can’t delete the file using command audii access is denied for it.
There must be a better way to stop Windows from assigning this driver automatically, no? Crashdance22Aug 11, Maybe you can see it on the motherboard. Do you already have an account?
(Windows 98) Problems Installing Crystal Audio Sound Drivers
This is as far as I get with the second set of drivers I found, with the system sound device still unusable. Let us know how it works out! All I can suggest otherwise is wudio to “force” the correct driver by ignoring the message that says “device not fully compatible with this driver” and “force” Windows to accept that driver. Crashdance22Sep 9, It appears that the Pavilion XL was sold with 2 different Crystal audio chips: Should I be concerned over the fact that the chipset doesn’t support hardware buffering though?
Audio Codec ‘97
It looks like the lucent modem driver works with 98 http: Yes, my password is: My video card is pretty minimal. Every time I remove the device and restart, Windows finds it again and automatically assigns this driver to it again. I hope one of ’em works!
Any assistance is much appreciated.
