Most likely it's a driver issue. Try updating the driver (Control Panel > Hardware and Devices > Device Manager) Check in Windows Update if the driver doesn't install. You can use the Microsoft Compatibility, http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/windows-7/en-us/default.aspx, to check if your audio system is compatible with Win7.

I hope this helps.

(if the driver update doesn't help, try a different set of speakers. I can't rule out a device failure that just happened.)

The quickest way is to use the free download of DriverAgent at DriverAgent.com. The program will scan your hardware device drivers to check for the latest drivers. This will tell you which drivers are out of date including your audio driver. You can then go to the manufacturer's site and download the correct audio driver for Windows 7.
If you subscribe to DriverAgent, you can just download the driver form their site or the manufacturer's site, and you have a way to check for the latest drivers for your system for the next year.
Please let me know if this works out for you and make sure to rate this solution. Thanks.

You just need a valid CD installer of your windows XP Home. Just insert the CD Installer when you start your computer so that it will boot from the CD. Then just follow the installation instructions on screen. You need a valid serial key. And you need to recreate the partitions. Make sure also that your motherboard drivers are ready since all of the needed drivers are shipped with your device package.

How do I recover or repair bootini and bootsect for Windows XP Professional after uninstalling Windows 7 Ultimate?


It's good that you have the recovery cds. Do NOT reformat the hard drive. Restore with the cds so you'll have a clean install . You will need to have any software cds that did not come with the original pc in order for them to rebuild the registry entries. That is the easiest way because there won't be any left over files from Windows 7 after you restore to XP.

Can i uninstall windows 7 from vaio e series?


you can't actually uninstall windows 7, but you can install windows xp over it, simply choose the disk partition with win 7 on it during the set up process. the only problem is you will lose everything on that partition unless you can hook the disk up to a different computer and pull the information off

My M-Audio 410 run well on my XP pc.... after that i try to use it on win7 pc using driver download frm m-audio website but it can't detect. after that i try to test back on my last xp pc but it can't...


HI there
I would imagine the drivers from M-Audio are not signed and therefore may not be proven to be compatible with win7. I checked the website and they have drivers for different service pack levels on Vista (I know yours is win7) which is very unusual. This points to them having issues releasing signed off working drivers. Make sure you know what you have installed, 32 or 64 bit win 7. Do not go by the sticker on the case. Go start>control panel>system and look it up philswift_13.jpg
Both versions of 64 bit and 32 bit seem the same file FireWire_6.0.1_5.10.0.5058.exe

which seems weird too


I would uninstall the drivers and choose delete as well
start>search> type 'dev' and see the results. Click on device manager, open it
under sound right click all devices>properties>click on driver tab>
philswift_14.jpg

then click uninstall but tick the delete driver box too
philswift_15.jpg

then reboot the pc but do not load the driver from M audio
we want Microsofts generic driver to load
After the reboot see if it works.

If not do a system update (start>search>type 'windows u' and click on windows update
Look under optiopnal updates and see if there is one for an audio device and load that

Failing this try the M audio XP driver
If that fails, uninstall and delete as per earlier.

Failing that try the Win 7 driver for 32 bit
If that fails, uninstall and delete as per earlier.

Failing that try the Win 7 driver for 64 bit
If that fails, uninstall and delete as per earlier.


I think M audio has issues with code for drivers and win 7

You may want to look at a new system as it seems M has some bad press with support.


All the best now, but it may be that the drivers are not signed off from Microsoft. If this is the case, you may want to chase up M audio and ask if they can be honest and let you know if there are any issues with Windows 7.
Microsoft are releasing Service Pack for Win 7 first half of 2011 and this may mop-up some issues. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-GB/windows/downloads/service-packs

In XP mode itself install the XP driver.
Else you may go to device manager and on the audio driver you may use the update driver option.

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.
