Hey all,

Well, I'm having audio driver issues. I believe it may be related to having the wrong/not updated chipset drivers. This is for a Optiplex GX270 small form factor Dell. It's running XP Pro currently at SP3. There seemed to be a fix on Microsoft's site KB888111 related to SP2, but now that I'm at SP3 it will not install.

Nothing shows up as wrong in the device manager, but there is no sound/no speaker icon in the task bar. When I try to install the Dell Driver from their site for audio I get an error "HDA Audio Bus Driver Not Found". Also, I seem to have trouble installing/updating to Dell's Driver for the Chipset i865pe. UUA HD Bus line in the device manager does not show up at all, no matter what I do.

I have googled and searched and downloaded and tried all sorts of things literally for hours, so I'm here bringing the "big dogs" in. :)

Can someone help, please? Broni, you there?

EDIT: What about this?

There's a simpler way. I looked at the driver details of the Microsoft UAA device and found it used the HDAUDBUS.sys file. Yours may be different. Look in the driver details in device manager. Simply rename the file ( It's found in c:\windows\system32\drivers). Reboot, delete the Microsoft UAA line (now with a yellow ! error so it's deleteable now), restore the file to its original name, load the software for the HD driver, reboot, and the system will detect new hardware, the Microsoft UAA thingy. As long as you restored the filename to original, Your system will now be fat dumb and happy.

Did the issue just start?
You said, you have no sound icon, but do you have ANY sound?

I seem to have trouble installing/updating to Dell's Driver for the Chipset i865pe

Broni, thanks for the reply.

This is a fresh install of XP Pro updated SP3 and then some. There is no sound at all via usb speakers or head phone jack/stereo jack. I'm refurbishing this computer, not the original owner. I suspect a driver problem because of the errors about "driver not found"... could it be faulty hardware? ... I don't know.

I seem to have trouble installing/updating to Dell's Driver for the Chipset i865pe


Means?

I have learned from past experiences that sometimes when you don't have sound or when there is the tiny exclamation point for audio in the device manager this is related to the chipset driver and audio driver compatibility. Usually, just update the chipset, and new hardware is found... problem solved.

I suspect a driver problem because of the errors about "driver not found"

I assume, this is from Device Manager?

Yeah, chipset driver is the one, you install as the very first one.
However, as the sound goes it's all about motherboard. We need to find a driver for your specific motherboard sound chip.

Broni,

It wouldn't install. It said, "Setup did not detect required components"..

And, NO, this is not from the device manager.

I assume, this is from Device Manager?

As I stated in my first post, I get that error when I try to install the recommended audio driver from Dell's site. It will not finish the "SoundMax" install and gives the error "HD Audio Bus Driver Not Found". Also, the pic below, shows what is NOT in the device manager... Microsoft UUA Bus Driver... (click on it to see a bigger picture on photobucket) I believe this is the problem... related to the chipset, right? Let me know what to do next, =( Thanks Broni!

P.S. All-in-all I think I need a better chipset driver that will detect the Microsoft UAA Bus Driver... See? I've had no luck though... ugh.

Broni, you're going to castrate me. :)

Let me ask you this... How hard would it be to get the sound working if the sound was disabled in the BIOS? :)

Problem Solved. :) Enabled Sound in the BIOS, Saved and Exited, computer booted and found the audio driver/necessary hardware to install it, and VOILA! SOUND!

Thanks for your time BRONI !!!! Apparently this came from a business (friend told me to check the BIOS because many businesses disable the sound in there to prevent employees from goofing off and stuff at work)
