Question about Toshiba Satellite A105-S2101 Notebook
I some how lost my driver for realtek high definition audio, i cant seem to find a driver for it, my computor doesn't have the sound icon that i can get to, ive tried the download manager and it says i have succesfully downloaded device driver for the hardware, but cant find the hardware device, CODE 41
From your question, I deduce that:
1. You are installing a Sound Crad Driver from an OEM Vendor (Toshiba support site).
2. You are runnimg Windows XP. in the case of Windows Seven/Vista, these two platforms support a generic HD Audio Driver (hdaudio.sys as verified from the DirectX Diagnostic Tool)
3.In that case, you need to download and install:
(a). The Intel Chipset Drivers for your device.
(b). The Microsoft Unified Audio Architecture HD Audio Driver , which you can download here as a HotFix (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/888111). Click here to go to the link.
4. Once you have downloaded all these components and installed them, go on and install the Realttek HD Audio Driver from your OEM Vendor.
