    A friend of mine needs the onboard audio working with his SY-6VCA motherboard because he wants this PC for amateur radio.

    Thing is i can't access the SOYO site and everywhere else i find the download link (driver sites and such), they send me to the SOYO site, which i can't access :(

    Any ideas?

    Nice find, erocker. If that doesn't work out, try going to http://www.via.com.tw/en/support/drivers.jsp and select your OS, "Audio" and VIA AC'97. You may also want to pick up the "Retro VIA 4 in 1 drivers" from the VIA site as well, as your board as a VIA 694X northbridge as well as a VIA 686A southbridge. Hope this helps.

    I always went to the VIA site for my audio drivers when I was younger and had KT266/400/600/K8T800 based boards, and it always worked even though many of the boards had Realtek codecs.
     
    HTC says thanks.

    Trying now: fingers crossed ...

    EDIT

    I had tried the VIA site already but didn't know the "VIA AC'97" part, which is why it didn't work. This time, i got 2 files: the 4in1 and the sound file.

    Hope these work!!!

    Thanks, dudes!!
