The Code 10 error is one of several Device Manager error codes. The Code 10 error will almost always display in the following way:
"This device cannot start. (Code 10)"
Details on Device Manager error codes like Code 10 are available in the Device Status area in the device's properties: How To View a Device's Status in Device Manager.
Important: Device Manager error codes are exclusive to Device Manager. If you see the Code 10 error elsewhere in Windows, chances are it's a system error code which you should not troubleshoot as a Device Manager issue.
Cause of the Code 10 Error
A Code 10 error is generated when Device Manager can't start the hardware device, a situation usually caused by outdated or corrupted drivers.
A device may also receive a Code 10 error if a driver generates an error that Device Manager doesn't understand. In other words, a Code 10 error can sometimes be a very generic message indicating some kind of unspecified driver or hardware problem.
Error Code 10 Troubleshooting
1.Restart your computer if you haven't done so already.
There is always the chance that the error Code 10 you're seeing on a device was caused by some temporary problem in Device Manager or with the hardware. If so, a reboot might fix the Code 10 error.

2.Did you install a device or make a change in Device Manager just before the Code 10 error appeared? If so, it's very possible that the change you made caused the Code 10 error.
Undo the change if you can, restart your PC, and then check again for the Code 10 error.
Depending on the changes you made, some solutions might include:
•Remove or reconfigure the newly installed device.
•Roll back the driver to a version prior to your update.
•Use System Restore to undo recent Device Manager related changes.
3.Reinstall the drivers for the device. Uninstalling and then reinstalling the drivers for the device is a likely solution to a Code 10 error.
Important: If a USB device is generating the Code 10 error, uninstall every device under the Universal Serial Bus controllers hardware category in Device Manager as part of the driver reinstall. This includes any USB Mass Storage Device, USB Host Controller, and USB Root Hub.

Hi can u pls. help me bec. i can't install my realtek ac'97 audio controller. error code 10. thanks ryan


Hi Ryan,

Thanks for using Fixya.

Here's a link to Microsoft's error code chart.

http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/Windows/XP/all/reskit/en-us/Default.asp?url=/resources/documentation/Windows/XP/all/reskit/en-us/prjk_dec_lgsc.asp

Although MS recommends re-installing driver, that does not always work. Error code can also be caused by a device (IRQ) conflict. Have you added any PCI cards to your PC?

First step is to install chipset and mobo drivers as recommended by nobus. If no help, follow oldgreyguy's recommendations.

a BIOS update should not be required.

I had exactly the same problem whilst trying to install a TV CARD with Nero 6 over Realtek AC97 on board sound card. I resolved by uninstalling Nero, sound card drivers and the TV card hardware, down loading the latest drivers for the sound card and TV card and loading in order, first sound card then TV card then Nero 6. Hope this helps. This took me a week to resolve so best of luck.

HP laptop > echo indigo io > Device error 10


The software driver can't see past the express adapter. You needed to get the card in express format, rather than PCMIA.

Problem in sound card


Have you tried simply removing the device and then rebooting - windows will pick it up again and probably ask for a driver.

I cant install Computer Speakers can someone help me? Computer says audio device installed but not working properly. Gives error code 10. What does code 10 mean?


Code 10 means that the sound card drivers could not start.... try this:


Goto START.
Right click on My Computer and select properties.
Select the hardware tab.
Select Device Manager.

Here you should see the audio device with a yellow exclamation mark by it.

Right click on it and select uninstall.

Once that has happened look for ACTION in device manager ( Up by FILE and select scan for new hardware.

IF this doesn't fix it you'll probably need to try downloading the latest drivers for the card or it could be defective!
