1) Sigmatel IDT Audio Driver
Very Hard to find a working driver for IDT devices . The company have a website but there are no drivers (I can’t find)
Thank god Most of the windows7 & Vista Drivers are compatible with Windows 8 !
2) Dell Alps Touchpad
Dell Never Release Any Driver for Windows7 ! But the company still supporting the device and making driver for HP and other brands even for dell in other models .
I found a fully working one here is it .
