Inspiron 1520 - Power Supply gone again

Without having researched it too much, it sounds like a modern take on

ADI1984A chipset audio output power

Hi!

How much audio power can an onboard chipset handle?

It's a line level output only, at best. It will drive small speakers or

Hi!

you should use the 32bit version (not the 64bit version) of windows 7 on
