No audio XP Pro 64-bit

  1. No Audio XP Pro 64 bit. I have a Sony Vaio 32 bit laptop that apparently was only configure to run Vista. I installed Windows XP Pro 64 bit on it and I am having a horrible time. No matter what I do I can't get rid of the yellow tag on device manager for IDT High Definition Audio CODEC.

    I have tried 6 different types of driver detectors and 10 different drivers and none have worked. I have done everything I could and I still have no sound. I've downloaded every fix in every forum I could find for over 60 hours now and I still can't get anywhere.

    I also have yellow flags on secondary ide channel, other devices, modem on high definition audio bus, ethernet controller, and two unknown devices. I really don't care about anything but the audio, however I figured one of these might be part of the problem. My audio device is FUNC_01&VEN_8384&DEV_7662&SUBSYS_104d1e00&REV_1002.

    Thanks for any help!

    Try using slimware utilities. It may be able to pick up some drivers for you. http://www.slimwareutilities.com

    You may have to go to the laptops website and try some of the original drivers. For that model. I have have had success with computers. Before going from vista to xp using the original drivers.

    Hopefully someone eles will give you a hand to. That might know of some good websites to get drivers.

    Perhaps the problem is using a 64-bit OS on a 32-bit laptop? I've never tried it, but it doesn't sound very compatible?! :)

    You might be better off going with Windows 7 64-bit...

    http://sigmatel-audio.software.informer.com/5.1/ Might work.
    SigmaTel High Definition Audio Codec Drivers. One thing you must understand about these is that SigmaTel releases drivers on a per-manufacturer basis. So whoever you bought your PC off of has "control" over what driver (and version) you install, even down to the PC-model. You're supposed to go to said manufacturer for "current" drivers.


    WinXp 64 Was a brilliant operating system when it came if it wasnt for the lack of supported devices. try and cressreference with a machine that has Support for Xp-64 or where sold with winxp 64 from the start as in one of the Laptop-workstation series (Dell, HP, Alienware etc) ... But I think you have a much bigger chance to run a 64 operating system With a later version of windows, since the driver support for these are alot more common.
    Good luck!
