I mirgated from XP to Vista and I cant find any audio drivers

Hello there, my problem is as such, once I upgraded from XP to Vista-Business I noticed that I lost some features within the laptop. I do realize that this Sony Vaio VGN-S170B was designed with XP in mind but I upgraded anyway. Do you know where I can find a audio driver suitable for this OS Vista-Business?

Hi,

This is the best way to download the drivers of all your devices which are connected to the system for free.

You can download the Driver Magician from this link :

http://www.toggle.com/lv/group/view/kl34858/Driver_Magician.htm

Download the reg key from this link :

http://public.box.net/paul123

then doule click & select ok.

Run the program and select update drivers, it will list the list of pdated drivers.

Select the drivers and select download drivers.

If it does not download just select the driver you need and at the bottom you would see a link,

Just copy that link and download from your browser or download manager, I use orbit downloader.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.

Cant install realtek hd audio player error 401


Hello,

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.

Good luck.

Tip

Which Windows Vista Edition are you?


If you are upgrading XP to Vista, make sure you backup and have the program "Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor"

Download Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=42B5AC83-C24F-4863-A389-3FFC194924F8&displaylang=en

Be Sure to Backup with a removable media such as CD's, Floppy Disks or USB Flash Drives, External Hard Drivers.

Windows Vista Editions:

Windows Vista Home Basic
Windows Vista Home Premium
Windows Vista Business
Windows Vista Ultimate
Windows Vista Starter
Windows Vista Enterprise

These also include 64-bit.

Lastly, if you have XP and if it's Vista Capable, you don't need to use the upgrade advisor, you are allowed to use any, but you must download the drivers after upgrade.

I down graded from vista to xp cant install drivers


Hello,

As for your problem Toshiba is not did not bother creating a Windows XP compatible drivers for the Model L500-018 as it is their high end Notebook for the year 2007 and discontinued it on 2009. what you can is to upgrade from Windows Vista Home to Vista Premium for more functionality and XP compatibility or upgrade to much better Windows 7 as the Vista drivers are accepted by windows 7 OS.

Hope this helps.

I am recently upgrade win7 hp nx9110 audio output device not installed msg getting how to resolve


Ok this is kind of common with Windows 7. Although everyone thinks its new its really not just a fairly bug free OS. The HP models running Win7 actually are using the Vista or XP driver for audio. I just ran into that issue a few months ago when upgrading a Pavillian model.

Previously i had windows XP SP2 and then i upgraded to VISTA BUSINESS..now the problem is that the sound driver is having problem in installing..what should be done now..my laptop is compaq presario...


Hi,

Please download and install this HP update utility.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=ob-56632-1&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&os=2100&product=1147426&sw_lang=

Then go to device manager and find the audio driver which has yellow exclamation mark in front it ie. Conexant AC-Link Audio Driver. Right click on it and uninstall.

After this open the HP update utility and scan for the updates. It will install the audio driver.

I hope this will work. If not please get back I have another option if it is not working. But coz of this limit of the message I can not post it.

LG Notebook driver upgrade


Install a program called Everest and identify your wireless device. Google search this device.
Option 2: if you have the XP driver for the device, try a force install. some XP drivers can work in Vista.

Big Problem


Hey, the reason is because vista does not have the drivers for your laptop, you need to go to the laptops manufactures website like www.acer.com for example. and go into support and drivers download, and look for the model of laptop you have.
once you are in there should be drivers for vista, download the ones for the items that dont work like, audio, bluetooth & webcam and it should get you working,

All the best

You have to download XP drivers from the manufacturer's website. This normally happens because your harware was designed for the new OS(Vista).

Just go to hp.com and search for the model of your Laptop.
