XP64bit driver for Sony VAIO VGN-AR71M (High Def Audio Device)

I have XP64bits installed in a Sony VAIO VGN-AR71M (shipped originally with Vista)

When in Vista, HW/codec properties look like this:

When in XP, there's none available., downloaded one XP64 driver through driverdetective, installed it automatically and manually but no success.

Any hints?

    Yes, sorry, forgot to mention: I don't have sound!

    Did as you instructed, here's the info:

    Guess meanwhile attempting to install the drivers I've "placed" the modem device in the Audio Bus. LOL, don't try this at home ;)

    I'm lost, can you please advise?

    Hello Ekse,

    Slightly delayed as I've made a XP fresh new install with all Microsoft critical updates, so you should be able to see it as it shows without any changes yet.

    Not sure what is missing,

    Diligentely seeked for solutions.
    Problem was technically not possible to solve due to heavy HW/SW incompatibility issues, but it surely saved me time to know it had no solution with the available tools and drivers.

    Will use Ekse;s services again.
    Thanks a lot

So you don't have sound on your laptop or what is the problem?

If your missing a driver for a device I need to know the device Pnp Id.

Press start -> then run-> type in: msinfo32
Open +components from the right
Open problem devices.

Send me the PNP ID from the right (full id, all of it.) If theres more than one device that has a problem post them all.

    here is one of the drivers you need.

    "HDAUDIO SoftV92 Data Fax Modem with SmartCP
    HDAUDIO\FUNC_02&VEN_14F1&DEV_2C06&SUBSYS_104D1700&REV_1000\4&159680D3&0&0102 "

    That should get rid of the sound problem, uninstall previous drivers first.

  • Ekse Jul 17, 2009

    No its not a joke, there is a modem on the computer that also needs a driver, that should contain both. Modem and the audio driver since they are on the same device.

    well I can look into it over remote support Click on this link to download the remote support program.

    Run the program, ones started it will give you a ID and a PASSWORD. send those two to me.

  • Ekse Jul 17, 2009

Speakers not working vgn

A couple things to try: First, attempt using a set of headphones to verify if the problem is the same. Second, open the device manager and expand 'sound, video and game controllers' uninstall the problematic device and redetect the device. One more thing you may try is going to Sony's website and look under support for the newest audio drivers for your system.

Sony Vaio laptop vgn-cr520e...fresh install of Vista Home Premium 64 bit edition...getting battery installation warning "the battery might not be installed correctly or may be incompatible with with...

I used to have the same problem, the chipset driver none for vista 64 > system will assume Intel v.8 core driver XP64bit as the driver.
two solution that comes up to me :
1.downgrade to XP32bit most feature works fine (xp64bit = motion eye app wont go)
2.Upgrade to win7 ultimate 32/64bit both works (64bit some missmatch driver found on IDE/ATA Controller >> always goes to standard dual channel)
