Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC
I am running Windows XP Prof SP2. On restoration from a crash and reinstalling OS, Installation of Realtek High Definition Audio driver fails. I did install the hotfix kb888111 advised by Microsoft Help and support & else. Still I am unable to install the said drivers. Reinstallation of the win XP Prof even does not help. The motherboad installed is Intel945 chipset. No such errors found with wnidows 2000 prof and sound plays fine with this OS (HD Audio). Please suggest a rescue tip.
Have you checked to see if the driver is already installed, and the volume is just turned down? (Start> programs > accessories > entertainment > volume control) If so, try going into Device Manager (right click My Computer > properties > hardware > device manager) See if the sound card is showing up there as a yellow question mark or other error icon, it will stand right out. If it's there, right click, and uninstall it. Now (still in device manager) press the button that looks like a computer screen with a magnifying glass on it, that will scan for hardware changes and pick up the sound card, which windows includes the driver for automatically. If this still doesn't work, try downloading from realtek here, and installing that. Hope this helps.
