  1. Basically when i install the "SigmaTel High Definition Audio CODEC 6.10.0.5609" it installs it properly and on the device manager it says it has been installed, but there still is no audio device shown when i go to the sounds and audio device settings.

    Anyone know whats wrong???

    Thanks In Advance

    OH! I just realized that kyl1125 posted in someone else's thread.

    @kyl1125
    Normally i'd tell you to start/post your own thread (this helps keep problems and individual facts clear among different people with same symptoms)...

    But as we hadn't heard back from htmltroyf5 yet....

    So kyl1125:
    > Are you running XP SP3 installed?
    > Have you run Windows Update, clicked Custom and installed all hardware optional updates? (repeat Windows update till you it says no more updates)
    > ONLY if the answer is yes to both the above then do the following

    See if Windows reports any problem devices
    • Make sure all your devices are connected and powered on
    • Click Start->Run, enter: msinfo32. Click the + sign next to Components to expand it
    • Click Problem Devices. Anything appear?
    • If yes, click on it, Ctrl-A to select all, Ctrl-C to copy it, Ctrl-V to paste into next post
    Generate a DirectX report
    • click Start->Run, enter dxdiag
    • Notice progress in lower left window corner
    • When done, click Save Information button and save to your Desktop
    • In TechSpot, use the paper clip icon to attach the reports. (If you don't see icon you may need to first cick Go Advanced)
