Can you specify the brand and model of your motherboard?

This is a driver issue. The driver that you have install is not compatible and or is not the right driver for your sound card.
The model and numbers in your motherboard will be of big help to help me find the right driver for you.

    The best solution for your driver issue is to go to your manufacturer's website and download the sound card driver compatible with your motherboard and your operating system. Please post back the brand and model of your computer.

Hi! I do suspect that the sound card itself is faulty. If you have a built in sound card you will have to install a new one and disable the built in sound card. This will surely resolve the problem for the existing sound card has reached it's break point. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

Go to Device Manager and Un-Install the device...Right-Click..select Un-install. Reboot and let Windows Hardware Wizard find it and install the drivers. There are a couple of options here as to allow windows to check for an updated driver...My gut feeling would be to check the "no" box here, and let it do it's thing. Sometimes this will work...

Another thing to do while you are in the device manager is to click on the view tab at the top and select "Show all Hidden Devices". Return to Sound and Video controllers and click on the "+"...Are there any conflicts there? Cursor down to Systems and do the same thing....Are there any conflicts there? Maybe check several other areas to see if something shows up by clicking on the "+"...wouldn't hurt to check them all

When you open up Control Panel>Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices do you see sound devices installed? Also check under the Audio tab...

If you Start>Run type "dxdiag" without the quotes press OK...Click on the Sounds tab and do the test...Do you hear the sounds? Click on the Music tab and do the test...Do You hear the Music?

By your explanation, I feel that when you installed the original update it corrupted something else or that update itself may have been corrupted itself...Happens with Windows sometimes...I'm pretty sure that the error Code 10 has to do with bad drivers. The drivers installed must be compatible with the device that they are installed on or it will never work...

If you go to Microsofts web site and choose updates, you may well find it isn't needed at all. Did your sound stop working? If it did got to Dell.com and update the drivers from there.

Hi...

Mostly of the sound driver now are need a compatibility if your installed driver is not compatible it will affect the hardware. It's better that you will know the model of your motherboard, if you know the model you need to search the model and download the sound driver witch is compatible.
For now the all motherboard are High Definition Audio.

Good luck!

MY HP SPEAKERS WILL NOT WORK AND NEITHER WILL THE HEADPHONES


Hi,

The simple and the only solution to this is reinstalling the sound card drivers.

Go to device manager > under sound video and game controllers
Right click on the IDT high def audio codec and uninstall it.

Also uninstall the connexant or th realtec audio driver
remember don't install the IDT codec back.. just reinstall the sound driver from the recovery manager > advance options > hardware driver installation.

Regards,
Anup
