Exclamation DRIVER NEEDED: Itronix XC-6250-PRO-300 / ES1983S Maestro-3i @ W2K

Have a Itronix XC-6250-PRO-300 (circa 2000), that I have just upgraded to Windows 2000 Professional from W98SE.

Onboard audio works fine in W98, but no drivers are available for W2k. Wondering anyone has had success getting the sound to work by utilizing "other" audio drivers.

I've downloaded a variety - most will not install, or lock up the system during installation.

Here's the specs:

Motherboard: NS Geode GXI/GXLV/GSm, 300mHz
Chipset: Cyrix Cx5520 Cognac
Bios: Systemsoft
Audio Adapter: ESS TEchnology ES1983S Maestro-3i Audio Accelerator

I've read reports that some folks have had luck using generic SB16 drivers - but that didn't work for me. I think they must have the 266 Mhz motherboard, not the 300Mhz.

Using the ESS device ID utility, it identified the sound card as a ES198X. I've downloaded the ESS ES1980_2K1166 driver from their web page - but that locked up the system. Using the Everest analysis program, it identified the board as ES1983S. The ESS web pages states that thet ES1983 is a propriety model for Dell, and to visit their web page for support. I downloaded drivers for a Dell Inspiration 8100 that uses the ES1983 board. This also locked up the system when I tried to activate the device. Apparently still a difference between the Dell ES1983 and the Itronix ES1983S...

Hoping that someone can point me in the direction for a substitute that works...

Thanks -

Itronix probably installed their own code on the machine that prevents generic drivers from working. Laptops must use the driver made by the manufacturer.....
