SigmaTel HD Audio works in RC1 after upgrade to RC2 did not work until I changed driver. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Go to Device Manager and then right click on SigmaTel HD Audio Codec device.  Then go to Update Driver Software. Select Browse my Computer.  Then pick Let me pick from list of device drivers on my computer. Choose High Definition Audio Device and then click Next.  I uninstalled the device and auto updated before I did the above instructions.  Good luck.

  • My sound device isn't showing up in device manager at all.  Tried loading it as a legacy device and that didn't work either.
