Can you tell me specifically what your motherboard specs are? I know it may be an OEM PC and i know alot of them like HP, emachines etc... have used the ATI chipset with realtek HD audio (ACL 880-882) - it may be that your not actually using the actual HD driver from the realtek site. There are seperate downloads for regular realtek ALC 650-655-658-850) - then there is a link to the actual HD audio drivers seperately. Also look in your device manager and tell me what you see (yellow checkmark?...)

Also remember to have your speaker setting to correctly correspond to your paticular setup both in the control panel/sounds, and in the realtek configuration utility that runs in the systray.

mother board is a intel 101dggc went on the intel site downloaded drivers for audio halfway through installation error message: microsoft bus drivers must be loaded before installation completes, so i downloaded all drivers for motherboard again but still no joy. went into hardware manager and pci modem is marked with yellow icon?

Tru looking for an alternative site - i saw that Sapphire has alot of boards with that chipset. Just make sure you're installing the SB450 ati chipset driver (though maybe SB480 will work the same?) . I would try installing then in safe mode, but before i did any of that i would uninstall the sound drivers, then uninstall the ati drivers(without restaring), then boot down and boot into safe mode and install the ati chipset drivers, then the sound drivers after a reboot into regular XP mode. Past that i would try emailing Intel about it and see what they have to say.

thanks guys
It was the bus drivers there is a uaa bus driver that had to be downloaded but found it and works like a bomb.

Glad you found it and got it working, but i have set up 4 ATI express 200 motherboards (all Jetway brand) and i didn't need that driver - although all were AMD boards. If you don't mind showing me where that driver download is i would much appreciate it. You never know i might need it, or someone else.

well got them from someone else but its on the gigabyte site lost the link but the gigabyte give you all drivers for the crossfire and is much easier than microsoft and intel i just find there sites to boring and tedious.
To put it nicely full of bullshit.

Wow i didn't realize you were actually running a crossfire setup. Have fun :cheesy:
