Intel945GNT audio driver is not installin?object not found error?

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

Solved Device Object not present on VAIO VGN-FE31Z by Kevski2 - 11/23/06 3:22 PM In reply to: No sound on Dell Inspiron 5100 by tlove258 After a whole day on this particular issue I managed to resolve it - well for me at least! I had just done a clean install of Windows XP Pro (with SP2 included) on a Sony Vaio VGN-FE31Z.

It seems that the order you install the device drivers is critical, and unfortunately, like many other out there it would seem, I got the order wrong and so was stuck with the error message "Device Object not present..." when ever I tried to install the Audio drivers. The device was showing in the Device Manager as "PCI device" with the usual black cross on a yellow background. I knew it was an audio device, I also had the "as supplied" Sony drivers in "C:\Drivers" but running the setup.exe still caused the error message above.

I had done numerous "Windows Updates" but curiously enough I did not have either KB888111 nor KB835221 installed. After much googling I found a copy of the file kb888111.exe on a download site and tried it.

Voila!

Immediately after the install of KB888111.exe, the Vaio (by itself - no clicking by me) started to detect the SigmaTel High Definition Audio and install drivers etc.

Wonderful - or so I thought. BUt even when all this was done and after a reboot - still no audio device. I then ran the Setup.exe again and this time it did not come up with the error, and the sound drivers (and Modem - now what is the tie up there I wonder?) installed, the sound device was recognised and I now have wonderful sound. Well, **** actually because the speaker are inbuilt diaphrams and not something of a higher cost/quality - but you get the idea.

Hope this helps someone. Excuse any typo's, mis-capitalisations etc - I've had three beers this evening while I have been pulling out what little hair I have left!

I Tried to ddownload Sigmatel HD Audio Driver Version 6.10.0.5274 the Response was:device object not present My CPU Processor: 2.8GHz Pentium D 820 Memory: 1GB DDR2 Storage: 250GB hard drive Optical D


Hmm.. interesting,


Checked the typical settings
?

- Volume control settings are normal (Sound on/not muted)

- Device Manager can detect a sound driver ~ if not, install it

- Driver File did not download correctly ~ try re-downloading the file

- If using audio jacks (usually known as the "green" cable), make sure that they are working properly


If this didn't solve the problem, reply to me thanx.

Audio Driver is not installing?


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
