SIGMATEL STAC 92XX C-Major HD Audio Driver for Windows 7?

This question has suggested answer(s)

Computer: Dell XPS 420

OS: Windows 7 64-bit

Sound Card: SIGMATEL STAC 92XX C-Major HD Audio

I upgraded my machine to Windows 7 64-bit couple weeks ago; however, the sound card is not working properly. I have Logitech Z-5500 Digital 5.1 Speaker and is required to install Sound Blaster Audigy MB Software. When I installed Sound Blaster Audigy MB Software, I got an error message 'sound card cannot be found'.

Without installing Sound Blaster Audigy MB Software, I still able to hear sound from two speakers (not all 5 speakers). I just wonder if Dell has laterest driver for SIGMATEL STAC 92XX C-Major HD Audio?

  • There are Vista 64 bit drivers on the Dell downloads HERE  and they should work for Win 7 64 bit.

    There are no SoundBlaster Audigy MB software on the Dell downloads as this is an optional at extra cost item that also requires a product key to activate.  I don't know if the Vista software will work on Win 7.  It is not a "sound card" it is only a software enhancement to the Integrated Audio and is not needed for 5.1 speaker operation as the SigmaTel will support that as it is.

    Did you configure the speaker type in the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound/Sound Panel?  Select your speakers as the Default Playback device and then click on the Configure button and set it for 5.1 speaker type.  You can test the speakers in the configuration panel.

    Dell does not have any Windows 7 drivers listed which means they are not going to support Windows 7 with this model.  However, since Windows 7 is basically "Vista Improved" it shouldn't be a problem.  Also, keep in mind Dell is in the business of selling new computers - it may sound harsh but it is the reality.

  • There are no 64 bit drivers in the link you gave.

  • Are you looking where I linked you?  It links to the Windows Vista 64 bit drivers.  As I noted the Vista will work for Windows 7.  It has SigmaTel and SoundBlaster Xfi XtremeGamer  drivers.  The SigmaTel will work without problems.  The SoundBlasters are iffy as many Xfi's need Windows 7 specific drivers, which should be obtained from the Creative site however not all Xfi cards are being supported for Windows 7.

  • You're right.  Not quite sure what I was looking at?!

  • Fixed on Dell XPS m1530 updated from vista 32b to win 7 64b.

    1 - Download the driver SIGMATEL STAC 92XX C-Major HD Audio Driver from dell.com - link below.

    www.dell.com/.../InitiateSingleFileDownload

    2 - Remove any sound device from your system manager, then when you are asked DO NOT restart the system.

    3 - Run the R190517.exe and try to install the driver, It will bring and error, such as device not present or something like that. Reboot your system.

    4 - Go to device manager. locate Sound, video game controller. Right over it and choose update. Browse to C:\Dell\Drivers\R190517\, confirm.

    Reboot when asked, when the system come back on check the sound system work as it should.

  • Just try to run Windows XP or Vista compatibility. Personally, for me it worked. Drivers can be downloaded from http://downloads.dell.com/audio/R180044.exe''''. I hope this helps ;)

  • Been having a similar issue and none of the above suggestions have helped. Recently upgraded the memory in my XPS 420 to 6 gigs so I had to switch from the 32 bit build of windows which I never had an issue with to the 64 bit version  Win 7 (sp1) which refuses to accept the driver. I've tried the compatibility for Vista (including the SP's) and XP and I either get the component not found error or it'll install but will display the speakers/headphones as unplugged and can't do anything at all to make it work. I've lost track of how many times i've tried installing, deleting, uninstalling and reinstalling and i've yet to find anything that seems to work. Any help would be appreciated.

  • Weird ... when I installed 7 on a 5150 last weekend, Windows installed a driver for the Sigmatel audio. The same held true when I installed 8 on a 3100.

  • Try to uninstall all Sigmatel drivers you have in both Control Panel and Device Manger. See Windows Reinstallation Guide page 433-434:

    http://philipyip.wordpress.com/dell-community-forums/ 

    Restart your computer. Install the Registry file and then the Vista Sigmatel Driver:
