Re: HD Audio Hardware

You are all very bright, as I have the intel 945GZ exp chipset, and have been forced to install win 2K, XP, XP64, Vista, and Vista64 (and a demo of win7). I've simply been trying to find the SATA driver for win XP 64, but so far, every download from Intel fails (luckily Intel won't let you nuke you're system too easy) Don't be afraid of installing Intel software, GO FISHING! the installer will auto-terminate if you do not have the device it is installing the software for. I just hope that they have a driver for the XP64 SATA on my schools crappy boxes that came with no install disk, but let me warn you, if you plan to use win 2K on these 9xx Intel chipsets, you won't get very far with graphics.

Re: HD Audio Hardware

Hi, To be able to help you on what audio driver to install, pls specify brand, model and version of your motherboard. If not printed on the MB itself, maybe you can check the info on POST or visually check the audio chipset on the mobo. Pls post back the info/details. Kind regards.

Audio & video is not working

You downgrade from Vista to XP right?

Installing your audio drivers on XP:- ***important
You have to install the "Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) Bus Driver for High Definition Audio (sp33867)" first, before intalling the audio drivers Conexant CX20549-12 Audio Driver for Microsoft Windows XP (sp41836.exe).

If you reverse the procedure your audio won't work.

Hope it helps.

How to solve ploblem it's error number 0xe0000227 realtek

here goes amed

There is really only 1 way to install the Realtek HD Audio drivers properly. No matter what all other forums say. Service Pack 3 is the main culprit as the drivers see that its above SP2 and dont install. I personally face this situation and was really distressed because it looked like either i will have to reinstall Windows Xp or have my new supercool and super monster computer without sound. Imagine having a monster PC with a motherboard with HD Audio and your driver doesnt install.
Both scenarios were something which i would never have approved of. Anyway so i Googled. I got 10s of solutions but most didnt work. Only 1 worked and i will put it here hoping that Google dear will catch it and people who face this problem installing the Realtek HD Audio 0xE000027.
  1. First Step is to make sure all instances Realtek Audio and its associative softwares are uninstalled from add remove programs and device manager. This includes Intel High Definition audio.
  2. On your PC change the CSDVersion registry key to Windows XP SP2:
    HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Windows\CSDVersion value=200
This problem arises as the patch thinks that SP3 includes a better version of the patch itself and hence doesn’t install itself.
3. Download the latest drivers from the Intel website, navigate to the KB888111 patch.
4. But before installing the patch, goto your device manager and disable the UAA. Now uninstall the UAA.
5. Install your patch now.
6. Install the Realtek drivers now and things should work.
7. Change the SP version to 300 again.
If it didnt work, try once again. Hopefully Error 0xE000027 is fixed now.

My intel motherboard audio driver installation failed.

You might have to install MicroSoft Universal Audio Architecture before installing Audio Driver, ensure you install the right audio driver version for your mobo series. On the BIOS setting make sure you have set onboard audio device to enable. Go to this link to get the right audio driver version download, specify your mobo series

Failure of realtek audio driver installation

I had the same problem while installing a GeForce 7050M-M motherboard w/AMD quad core processor. I kept getting the message "install Realtek HD Audio driver failure!!" message. After many hours of futility, and reading possible solutions on the internet, I got it working this way: First, go into your cmos setup and disable your onboard audio. Then after you boot up, go into 'control panel' and then 'add/remove programs' and remove any program associated with high definition audio. The Realtek programs that I had tried to install were in mine, so I deleted them. Then I clicked on 'start' and then 'search', and put this in the search window: 'hdaud' for high definition audio. Several files came up, and I deleted them, which put them all in the recycling bin. I didn't empty the bin, in case I screwed up something and had to restore the files later. I then rebooted, and being probably overcautious, let the computer come up and then went back into 'add/delete programs' to make sure there were no HD audio programs in there, and then double checked for any files by going back into 'search' and searching for 'hdaud' files like before. A file somehow had appeared there associated with Realtek, so I deleted it. Then I rebooted, and at reboot went into cmos setup and enabled my onboard audio. When the computer came up, the 'found new hardware' message popped up. When you see this DO NOT let the computer look for the driver. Hit 'cancel', and load your Realtek audio drivers from your setup disc or from whatever location you have them in. You may see the additional message about the driver not loading and your sound not working right, but ignore it, it's because you clicked on 'cancel'. Just let it finish it's install from your setup disc. When mine finished successfully for the first time now, and it prompted me to reboot because of the new drivers just installed, I actually got the 'shutdown' sound out my speakers-the first peep I heard out of them since I started this adventure early yesterday. When the computer came up, lo and behold I had sound. I was about ready to give up and go out and buy a sound card, but stubborness prevailed. So in short review:

1. Disable your onboard audio in CMOS
2. Go into 'add/remove programs' and delete any and all HD audio programs
3. Go into 'search' and type in 'hdaud' and delete those files that come up.
4. Reboot and double check 2 and 3 above.
5. Reboot and go into CMOS and enable your onboard audio.
7. Reboot and hopefully, enjoy the sound.
