I'm using a w3j laptop
and i tried AppleAzaliaAudio.kext & AppleHDAPatch
both seems no effect to my laptop
and i found that all those who succeeded in ad1986a were using a Desktop Computer

Ok I have a Fix for Most AD198x sound cards in OSx86 10.5.1 and 10.5.2.

Load Applications/Utilities/Terminal

sudo -s
Enter Password:
cd /System/Library/Extensions/AppleAC97Audio.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleAC97CodecAD198x.kext
chmod 644 Info.plist
nano Info.plist

Scroll Down Until you see:
<key>PNPVendorID</key>
<string>ADS75 ADS74 ADS73 ADS72</string>

Change it to:
<key>PNPVendorID</key>
<string>ADS78 ADS74 ADS73 ADS72</string>

Hit (APPLE)+(0) then (APPLE)+(X)
or on PC
(CTRL)+(O) the (CTRL)+(X)
to Save the Changes

Now Close Terminal

Load Applications/Utilities/ Disk Utility
and Click Repair Permissions

Wait for this to Complete

Once it is complete Load Terminal Again
sudo -s
Enter Password:
cd /System/Library/Extensions/AppleAC97Audio.kext/Contents/PlugIns/
kextload -t AppleAC97CodecAD198x.kext.

Close Teminal

Open Terminal Once More to make it Load this kext every time you boot up.
sudo -s
Enter Password:
rm /System/Library/Extensions.kextcache
kextcach -k /System/Library/Extensions

Close Terminal and Repair Disk Permission to be Safe
reboot

Once Rebooted
Load Applications/Utilities/ Audio MIDI Setup

Click the Properties For Drop Down and Choose the bottom AC97 Audio (PCM)
Change Format on the Right Pane to (6ch-16bit) or (6ch-32bit)
Varies per your motherboard.

Click Configure Speakers
Click Multichannel, Change Drop Down Menu to Stereo
Change "left front" value to 3
Change "right front" value to 6

Enjoy audio on all AD1986a ,b, or c card from HP, DELL, and Compaq
I have tested this on a Dell Laptop and Desktop and had friend use it on HP and Compaqs

If you have any issue you can repeat everything and try changing it like:
<key>PNPVendorID</key>
<string>ADS78 ADS77 ADS76 ADS75 ADS74 ADS73 ADS72</string>
Note I would only try changing ADS75 to ADS7x x="number 6-8" or it may crash
but I haven't had any issues.

It didn't help. I tried all versions of ADS from ADS75 to ADS78. No result. In Audio MIDI Setup "Properties For" not contains AC97 Audio (PCM).

I have it fully working in my laptop Samsung X11cv02 with this installer


How I can uninstall this or correct it, because I can see in System Preferences -> Sounds -> Input:
Internal Microphone - Built-In
Line In - Audio Line-In port

But they are not working and the output has no "Output controls" an I can't control the volume.
I've been using before this the AppleAC97 or the Azalia and at least I have volume control for the output and no input...
SOLVED: I reinstalled: AzaliaAudio.pkg but still no input...

I really need a mic...Please Gurus Help!

Thanks in advance
