ESS Technologies ESS 198x Audio Driver

Company: ESS Technologies
Model: ESS 198x
Operating System: Windows 2000 (Note: might work with other versions of this os.)




ESS Technologies ESS 198x Driver. Last year I upgraded my Compaq 5BW250's operating system from

Millenium to Windows 2000. After

the upgrade, the ESS 198x sound card stopped working. Recently, I found a solution. From the Compaq driver site


I downloaded the following two service paks

SP17455.exe (dated 5/16/01)

SP17311.exe (dated 4/11/01)

SP17455 upgrades the System ROM and SP17311 installs the ESS 198x sound card.

After installing the two files I now have sound.
