    There is also one component in the embedded XP called "RFI_Marlin"

    HW ID:
    PCI\VEN_104c&dev_a106&subsys_080117B6&REV_02

    It was enlisted as PCI device on Windows XP and thanks to rescueing all drivers, this is now installed as well.

    looks to me that is not an audio port, but more like a port for sound as in beeps and alarms like the sound a heart monitor may make.
    You might consider modifying that case to use a more standard atx pc motherboard, it may be easier than attempting to use a board not intended for the purpose your trying to do

    The "problem" is, even the manual advices to use the standard Windows Sounds (WAV files) to test if the Sound is actually working in this built in Embedded XP.

    I could imagine IRQ interrupts or another tiny complication, that just dont end up in a windows error message...hence the idea of placing a jack connector between the speakers and
    the Sound Plug...then again...

    Of course I thought about just adding a mini PC into the housing...but then it wouldnt be a Medical Ultrasonic Device anymore, that plays games and mp3's. =)
    It would be just a PC. :)

    And thats my goal for now.

    I disagree, It would still look like a medical ultrasonic device. The difference being is that you could do a whole lot more with it because on the outside you can not tell the difference. It would make for a very nice mod.

    I love playing on the original hardware, instead of just fancy modded cases. :)

    Also, in case of selling it, it could still be turned back into a UltraSonic Device. ;D

    Or, what about a dualboot ? UltraSonic-Device and Classic Gaming PC...

    Windows XP and all drivers installed. Works just like a normal (old) PC. I bought a USB Soundcard and attached all the cables and a Logitech 2.1 SoundSystem to the device.
    Now it has (very) loud sound and a nice bass. But from now on, no further modifications !

    Oldskool XP games run just fine (thanks to Intel 915GMS chipset) :
    -FlightSim 2004 everything at ultra high 800x600 (also attached my Logitech Wingman 2 Joystick, runs like a charm)
    -GTA 3 (640x480) ;S
    -FarCry (runs decent on mid settings, using 3D Analyze)
    -Resident Evil 1-3 on hi
    -Resident Evil 4 (quiete a bit laggy)
    -Fifa08 excellent on hi
    -NFS Most Wanted

    So, Retrosystem done. :)

    But also MAME (nearly all arcade games with filters) zSNES on 1024x768 with all filters on, Dosbox...Winamp...720p videos, all at 50fps+.

    Now I could go further and tell you about all the DOS Arcade Emulators, DOS USB Stick Support, DOS web browsers and DOS MP3 players...and how interesting it would be to let this device run in dos 6.21 mode...but thats another story.
