Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC
I am trying to install the realtek hd driver but it hang up and display only a message" hda driver failure", how to solve this problem? pls eply to me at my e-mail email@example.com tnx a lot
I too have a new GeForce 7050M-M version 2 motherboard with AMD Athon processor installed rather than the original CPU. Operating system is Windows XP home edition (SP2) (which I upgraded to SP3.
As you are most likely aware, Realtek audio drivers (I have the ALC662 HD driver) are dependent on Microsofts' DirectX runtime,.specifically version 8.... With my version of XP that would be DirectX version 8.1. Although Microsoft literature states that DirectX version 8.1 is included with the XP installation disk I could only find DirectX version 9.0c on it, perhaps because I purchased the SP2 upgrade without having an XP operating system installed.
Motherboards with an AMD processor require a hotfix in order to work with Reatek drivers (or Audio Codec Chip) from Microsoft and that can be downloaded from their website.
DirectX 8.1 can be downloaded from the internet (use care that the XP version is downloaded). Then DirectX version 8.1 and 9.0c will be both present on the system (8.1 cannot be uninstalled.)
Downloading the hotfix for AMD processor and DirectX 8.1 from the Internet solved the problem for me instantly.

I had the same problem while installing a GeForce 7050M-M motherboard w/AMD quad core processor. I kept getting the message "install Realtek HD Audio driver failure!!" message. After many hours of futility, and reading possible solutions on the internet, I got it working this way: First, go into your cmos setup and disable your onboard audio. Then after you boot up, go into 'control panel' and then 'add/remove programs' and remove any program associated with high definition audio. The Realtek programs that I had tried to install were in mine, so I deleted them. Then I clicked on 'start' and then 'search', and put this in the search window: 'hdaud' for high definition audio. Several files came up, and I deleted them, which put them all in the recycling bin. I didn't empty the bin, in case I screwed up something and had to restore the files later. I then rebooted, and being probably overcautious, let the computer come up and then went back into 'add/delete programs' to make sure there were no HD audio programs in there, and then double checked for any files by going back into 'search' and searching for 'hdaud' files like before. A file somehow had appeared there associated with Realtek, so I deleted it. Then I rebooted, and at reboot went into cmos setup and enabled my onboard audio. When the computer came up, the 'found new hardware' message popped up. When you see this DO NOT let the computer look for the driver. Hit 'cancel', and load your Realtek audio drivers from your setup disc or from whatever location you have them in. You may see the additional message about the driver not loading and your sound not working right, but ignore it, it's because you clicked on 'cancel'. Just let it finish it's install from your setup disc. When mine finished successfully for the first time now, and it prompted me to reboot because of the new drivers just installed, I actually got the 'shutdown' sound out my speakers-the first peep I heard out of them since I started this adventure early yesterday. When the computer came up, lo and behold I had sound. I was about ready to give up and go out and buy a sound card, but stubborness prevailed. So in short review:
1. Disable your onboard audio in CMOS
2. Go into 'add/remove programs' and delete any and all HD audio programs
3. Go into 'search' and type in 'hdaud' and delete those files that come up.
4. Reboot and double check 2 and 3 above.
5. Reboot and go into CMOS and enable your onboard audio.
6. Load your audio drivers from your setup disc-DO NOT LET THE COMPUTER LOOK FOR A DRIVER THRU THE 'FOUND NEW HARDWARE' PROMPT-PRESS CANCEL.
7. Reboot and hopefully, enjoy the sound.

IT might happen that u must installing the uncompatable version of REALTEK HD AUDIO DRIVER.
U must also bring to ur notice that u first have to install UAA BUS for ur REALTEK. After installing UAA BUS driver only u will be able to install REALTEK HD AUDIO MANAGER.
If u are facing some problem with ur version of REALTEK HD AUDIO DRIVER u can have mine version and try it but it is of 23 MB that cannot be emailed. So the second option is remote connection.
