  • Dear Micro,

    I have an HP pavilion dv1000 Limited Edition laptop and I am also getting the error message in device manager>audio>high definition audio>properties>"This device cannot start. (Code 10)Click 'Check for solutions' to send data about this device to Microsoft and to see if there is a solution available." is the error code I have.  I have searched for the last two months and have had no luck finding a solution.  I cant believe that I am the only one with this audio driver and not a soluion in site.  I am on VISTA RC2 Build 5744 (supposed to be the final beta with corrected audio issues) and no update.  I noticed you are releasing your final Vista is coming out in two months.  I hope this issue has been rsesolved before your release. 

     

    Any suggestions would be helpdful.  I am participating in the error reports back to Micro in hopes of a fix.  Other then the audio issue everything looks and works great.

  • Make sure you install the Microsoft UAA (Universal Audio Architecture) Bus driver first then the audio driver. You may need to manually point to the drivers rather than letting the installer set the drivers.

    Download the drivers if you haven't already,  install them and see if you can point the device manager to the folder in which they were installed under and see if that resolves it.

    Right now it sees as though Vista has issues with HD Audio devices.

  • I recently installed Vista RTM on a Pavilion DV1000 (DV1610TN) and found the same problem. Downloading and installing the latest drivers for Windows XP from HP fixed the problem:

  • DACTech,
    Help.  I had similar problem as original poster with Gigabite MB.  I initially had sound working by instruction as your message above.  Then, somehow I screwed up while trying to get scanner works, long story.  Anyway, I try to reinstall UAA and then audio driver.  It simply will not work.  How can I remove audio drive and UAA clean so that I can reinstall and make it work?  I tried device manager to uninstall.  It just won't work for me.
    Your help are greatly appreciated.

  • Had the same problem and found this file "vista_R155.exe" which works fine in Vista but is giving me problems in Medievil 2:Total War where everything sounds like it's underwater.  You can find links to the file at our Japanese collegues forum:

  • Hi,

    It took me 2 hrs. but I got it.  First, uninstall all the conexant sound and modem drivers and download and install  

     

    a microsoft file kb888111xpsp2 HD Audio.  Shut down the computer and restart.  When the system reboots the found new hardware wizard will pop-up and will be looking for hdaudbus.  Unzip the above file and browse to the unzipped file and install the hdaudbus.  Then the new hardware wizard will install the Conexant HD Modem and HD Sound.  The sound should work great.

     

    I hope this helps, John
