Nevermind, I went back and found it.     lol

Yes, the one you want is the version.  It's the only one that 
shows up as an audio driver, but it's actually good for a variety of chips 
and operating systems.

The dates on these releases tells us that they haven't been updated in a 
long time (2002, 2003), so it's doubtful that installing any of them will 
help your system.  However, the fact that you reported something very 
different than what's offered for your sound hints that your system has 
become a little confused on what it should use.  Just about every system has 
multiple options built into it for audio, video, various controllers, etc., 
so it's possible that your system lost track of the one it's supposed to use 
and 'switched' over to a different one, causing the problems you're now 
having with your sound.  If that's the case, installing the right one should 
repair the issue completely.  But place some emphasis on the word 'should' 
in that last sentence.       lol

The file will be downloaded as "wdm3516b_Cadenza.exe".  All you need to do 
is to run it and it will put itself where it needs to go.
