    btw... Once you get the HD Audio Controller installed, you should see a device named Microsoft UAA Bus Driver for High Definition Audio appear in Device Manager under System Devices and that PCI Device problem device report should disappear.

    Also, once the audio controller is installed, if still no sound then try the Sigmatel driver on the Dell audio driver page

    ok, i downloaded the ethernet controller. i decided to go with SP3. i can find it on the same site, correct?

    No, run Windows Update. Windows Update should offer you the SP3 upgrade.

    SP3 upgrade runs fine 99% of the time but always worth backing up any personal files first just for that 1% case

    /* edit */
    p.s. just be patient. takes awhile for the sp3 upgrade to complete

    Those 3 are just differently formatted documentation pages. You can also download sp3 directly from the microsoft download center our using Windows Update. Take a look HERE for SP3 instructions...

    i'll be away for awhile but i'll check back later.. :)

    Hi brett747

    A few things.
    1. List any Problem Devices
    • Make sure 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
    • On the other hand, if no devices are listed, tell me so

    2. You're running 64-bit Windows. You need to run 64 bit dxdiag. See HERE for how to run it for 64 bit

    3. If you open Device Manager and look under Sound category. do you see any "High Definition" Audio devices listed? (i.e. the words "High Definition" would be included as part of the device name) Do they have yellow icons or not? (yellow icon means there's a driver error on the device)

    /* edit */
    I tried looking on the emachine support site for your model but I only see bluetooth driver listed on their site :confused: Don't know if that means emachines thinks the generic W7 audio driver should work for your eME730 cuz obviously they're not working :confused: :(

    /* edit2 */
    >> Did you say you downloaded an audio driver on the emachine site? i didn't see one listed for your model?

    i got it sorted out. I went into services and clicked start on the windows audio. i then got an error 1068. (windows audio was not started nor on automatic) after doing a bit of research, i went clicked on the windows audio and went into 'dependencies'. there were 3 items listed there, one of which was 'multimedia class scheduler'. I went to check these devices in the list and saw multimedia class scheduler was not active (nor on automatic) i started that up, then went and started up the windows audio, and, voila. it worked. so the sound is back up and running again. thanks for your response.

    Do you also need help with your Video Controller?

    That's your onboard graphics adapter from Intel. If you also need to find the Intel graphics card driver try Intel Driver Update Utility

    Looks like you're missing many drivers. You have Dell Latitude D800. right? If you go to and click Drivers and Downloads. You can enter your service tag (or let Dell find it for you) to get the full list of possible drivers. But here's some some download links to help as there many drivers on Dell site to choose from

    Do have a network connection? As it looks like neither your Ethernet and Wireless card drivers are installed. Use a USB flash drive to download and save these drivers on flash then plug into D800 to install.

    > Start with the Intel Mobile chipset drivers first
    > Then Broadcom-Driver for the Ethernet card

    You should now be able to connect to the network via cable and download without the flash drive
    > For audio, the Sigmatel-Driver
    > You need the Texas Instrument chipset drivers for you memory card

    You can start with those.. then another Problem Device report

    You should be able to find your audio driver on the Lenovo support site. Use Internet Explorer browser and go HERE. Click on Drivers and Software. You can either enter your model number or try the Auto-Detect tab to let the site detect your hardware

    Alright I've noticed this thread is incredibly old and not sure if you're even paying attention to it any longer but I've got an issue similar to the others. My current computer is a HP Pavilion a6110n PC which was previously an XP but is now a win7 after reformatting the audio has stopped working. My playback devices show my monitor as an option but I'm trying to get my actual speakers to become available.

    After researching a bit I've noticed that my onboard sound card is apparently realtek but the drivers on the website aren't working as I've installed both successfully. I have not tried the BIOS option as that's a big red flag on how to mess computers up in my eyes playing with those type of settings. Troubleshooter is about as useless as Microsoft gets have had no luck using the internet finding a solution so I'm hoping you could possibly find out the problem and weed out something I can do to get it working again. Thanks in advance!

    There are no problem devices showing in device manager.

    The data you reported indicates that only the audio hardware in your monitor is being detected by Windows. (Your integrated audio isn't being detected) You will need to go into BIOS after all. For now, just take a look but don't change anything. Look to see if there's any BIOS menu option for something named like "Integrated Audio". If there is, my guess is it may be disable / turned off. But just take a look if you we find we can talk about changing it

    /* Edit */
    Oh. There's another thing odd I see about your monitor sound. Have you actually tried it? Do hear sound from the HDMI port on the video card? In any case, let's first check your BIOS to see if that option exists
