Question about Dell Inspiron 8500 Notebook
I have the same problem with my new Intel D945GNT motherboard that has Sigmatel on-board audio. I have installed drivers, updated INFs, updated my BIOS, tried to enable/disable audio in the BIOS, swapped video cards, turned off extra parallel/serial ports, etc. with no luck.
I alwasy get the error "Device Object not present" when trying to install the drivers. I am usually pretty good with drivers and hardware, but this one is kicking my tail
The error you got means the device driver cannot initialize certain ports on your audio device. It normally indicates an incorrect driver. PCs/Laptops normally come bundled with drivers but on rare cases, they will have some compability issues with OS service packs/upgrades. I suggest you follow these steps:
First, you must be sure that your chipset drivers are the later one, otherwise download it from Intel Website directly.
1. Completely remove all your previously installed audio device drivers.
2. Restart your computer
3. Download the correct audio driver for your system.
In your case its a SIGMATEL Audio Controller 9750.
Try to get it from their website, instead of using the bundled driver
4. Install the audio driver
