Can anyone identify the correct drivers I need? In a few cases it will take a new, correct install sequence, to get everything working. My machine is an XPS LX with the 2nd generation i7 and the the series 6 chipset if that ever helps anyone. It shouldn’t be necessary to reinstall the OS because a step was missed; if the machine can’t get to the Internet, the chipset drivers can be download from Dell or Intel and installed over top of the existing ones. If you don’t have it, here’s the generic Audigy 2 driver from Creative, but as the Dell versions of Creative’s cards often use custom drivers I can’t guarantee it will work:

I haven’t had much luck yet figuring out which of the multiple available Conexant drivers it is, and I’m hesitant to guess right now. It looked to me like the M does not have any integrated audio, so no ADI. Thought I’d let others know. Cable Select is the correct position.
