I suggest you find out what parts you have in your system - motherboard in particular - list them and post them in the correct part of the forum. Is it necessary for you to still run SP3 Beta?

Worked great for me on my Gateway 507GR Desktop Computer.
Motherboard: Intel (Augsburg) No CPU Motherboard R0 [Part #102007].

Thanks a lot!  :bonk:

Thank you so much for posting this topic!  I had been trying to figure this out for about four hours, to no avail, when I read tinker_tim's solution in reply #6.  Worked like a charm!

FINALLY!!! A solution that actually worked.
Thank you so much STU - you're a genius. This worked like a charm, just like you described.

God bless you STU.

I came across this problem today, and thought I'd share my solution with you all, in case someone encounters the same problem... :idea:

Basically, I figured it was time for a fresh install of Windows XP, and so to save some time, I decided to slipstream in the RC Beta of Service Pack 3, as well as all the drivers I was likely to need.

After Windows finished installing, all my devices were installed, but there was no sound... Device Manager showed a (?) PCI Device under Unknown Devices, but no driver I tried would work with it.

I tried installing the HD Audio Bus driver hotfix (KB888111) in case that was the problem, but it reported that my service pack version was newer and so this fix wasn't needed...

After much head scratching and fiddling around, I came across the answer thanks to Googling. :laugh:

Seems the HD Audio Bus driver wasn't actually installed, and the KB installer was just confused.

1) I have attached the HD Audio bus driver from the KB888111 hotfix to this topic.
2) Download and extract the files to a handy location (eg C:\HDAudioBus)
3) Open Device Manager, search for the Unknown PCI device
4) Right click on the Unknown PCI device to update the driver
5) Point the driver path to this C:\HDAudioBus folder, or wherever you may have extracted the files
6) The UAA audio bus driver will be installed
7) If you have already installed the Realtek HD Audio drivers, then they will then be installed automatically and your audio hardware will be ready to use. Otherwise, you may now install the Realtek drivers as normal!

Hope this saves someone else a couple of hours headache, you may also find it useful to add this driver to your slipstreamed installation to avoid any future hassle!

Now, for some music... :laugh:


Did everything you posted here, step for step, however it is not showing in my device manager an unknown PCI device.  When I downloaded realtek prior to trying this (and got the error 10 in device manager) the UAA audio driver was showing up in device manager (but like I said, with the error 10).  I don't claim to be anywhere near computer savvy, but I am beyond frustrated as to why this is not working!  Please help!

boys3mom,

Please read the >>Posting Guide<< and start a new topic in the correct area of this forum for your board, and with a link to this topic to say you've tried the suggestions here already, and then we can take it from there.

That didn't help me. I bought GX620, when I install SP3 clean, I have audio device on high definition audio bus, I install Realtek drivers, but no luck, same with this, if I point to the hdaudiobus  files you showed us here, no luck again..

I did, but no help so far.. local MSI support didn't help me either, they told me to use official drivers from the MSI website, which I used in the first place..

I was directed from another board with my problem but the above instructions have only partly solved my problem.
For instance I did not have any Unknown PCI device showing but Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus was showing a yellow exclamation mark but the instruction have cleared that.
However it shows no drivers loaded and my attemts to load drivers (v5.10.0.5605) is still ending with the message Install Realtek HD Audio Driver Failure [Error Code 0xE0000227]
Could anyone offer further advice.
THanks
John

Do this:
Go to device manager, then expand "System Devices", and locate "MS UAA bus" Right click over it, then click "Disable".
Reboot and enter in "Safe Mode", {hit "F8" just after bios post screen}
Once done go to device manager then expand "System Devices", and locate "MS UAA bus"  Right click over it, then click "Un-install".

Reboot PC, then run Realtek driver installation again.
