Re: audio device erased
You have to reinstall your audio driver. Answers to your questions: 1. You can locate it in your Device Manager. Locate and expand Sound,video and game controllers. 2. You don't have to delete legacy drivers because reinstalling your audio driver will update it. Right click your audio software the one you found in the Device Manager and update it. It will find your installation cd of your system drivers. Else, manually install the audio driver.

While I do not know exactly what would cause your computer to display that code, I can safely assume that you are using a pci sound card if you are getting a pci error, and your sound is not working. In short, yes, the pci problem is almost definitely related to your sound problem.
Hi you should try the motherboard website for drivers. Usually drivers that come with Windows XP are generic.
Try going in to Device manager, Uninstall the driver and reinstalling the driver that you downloaded from motherboard vendor site.
You have to double check you system unit in installing your drivers. First, try to check the support & download drivers for your audio. Now, when you already downloaded a copy of driver for your MOBO most likely you still need to download a software for HDA (High Definition Audio ) in order for your audio to function.
2)Right Click My computer 3)Click properties 4)Select Hardware Tab 5)Click Device Manager 6)Click on the cross of System Devices 7)Right Click Microsoft UAA Bus driver for high definition Audio 8)Uninstall this (this is the problem making place and this might indicated as yellow color explanation mark before you uninstall it)Just uninstall it 9)Now install your newly downloaded drivers which i have asked you to download in the previous post. 10)System will ask to restart momentarily just follow the instructions and reassert . Once all the installation and restarting are done your Audio will work with out any issues
Hope this will work and please let me know if my post able to fix ur problem.
Have you checked to see if the driver is already installed, and the volume is just turned down? (Start> programs > accessories > entertainment > volume control) If so, try going into Device Manager (right click My Computer > properties > hardware > device manager) See if the sound card is showing up there as a yellow question mark or other error icon, it will stand right out. If it's there, right click, and uninstall it. Now (still in device manager) press the button that looks like a computer screen with a magnifying glass on it, that will scan for hardware changes and pick up the sound card, which windows includes the driver for automatically. If this still doesn't work, try downloading from realtek here, and installing that. Hope this helps.
Confirm that there is an audio device installed in your PC > right click on My Computer, Properties, Hardware tab, Device Manager button, expand Sound, video and game controllers,
It's got to be there, with no yellow or red marks.
Also in Start, Control Panel, Sounds and Audio Devices, Audio tab, you should have something in Default device.
If none likewise in Device Manager or a yellow or red mark, you have to re-install your drivers by right clicking on the mark and click Update drivers.
If they're there with no marks, ensure that they are enabled.
Perhaps further assistance maybe made available if you can post brand/model of your PC and/or motherboard.
Good luck and kind regards.
