No luck. The only thing that changed is that instead of SigmaTel, I have "IDT Audio1"

Any other ideas/suggestions, or do you know of someone who might have a solution??

Ok try the drivers @ http://download.cnet...0_4-197119.html
If this does not work I feel you may be looking at conflicts amongst some of the software
you have installed previously, the audio codecs and screaming bee etc.

I downloaded the drivers and went to install. I ran the setup.exe, clicked next, and it said "Please wait while the system updates the hardware audio configuration."
After that, a popup in the task bar says "Found New Hardware" and a wizard comes up, asking if I want to install everything.
Then the driver wizard gives me this error: "_ExitError: Error=Device Object not present, restart the system and run setup again"

I noticed the IDT folder had data1, data2, and engine32 in WinRAR Archives, so I decided to try opening one.
"C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Desktop\IDT\data1.cab
The archive is either in unknown format or damaged"

Now, I only extracted the IDT folder to my desktop (as seen above), and inside is where the setup and all that is. Should I extract it to somewhere else, or extract the contents of the IDT folder somewhere else?
Maybe I just got a bad download and should retry.
Any suggestions/ideas?

As I said in post #17 you may be looking at a software conflict here, if it was my PC I would save all the present audio drivers to disk or a thumb drive and then uninstall the lot, reboot and run the hardware wizard again, try one driver at a time until the issue is resolved, the problem with software conflicts and bad drivers is that they will sometimes be reported as having no issues when they have.
If you choose to do a fresh install after you have removed each audio driver run driver sweeper
http://www.guru3d.co.../driversweeper/ to get rid of any remnants that can cause problems, also if you go this route when you first reboot make sure that audio is enabled in the BIOS, "how to" below; you could check this now BTW

Reboot the system and at the first post screen tap the Del key normally and it should get you into the BIOS
In there find either the Advanced, Onboard or Integrated Peripherals areas.
Using the keyboard arrow keys scroll down to the Audio entry and make sure it is Enabled and if not then look at the bottom of the screen it will tell you how to adjust or modify the values to Enable it.
When done make sure to click F10 to Save and Exit with the setting.
You will then be asked to click Y to Verify the Save and Exit
The system will now reboot with the new settings saved.

Hi again, phillpower2. Sorry for the late response, I got a bit preoccupied.
I'm going to try that now. Though, in device manager, when I right click and go to the properties tab things such as Audio Codecs, Legacy Audio Drivers, ect, I get a message that says I have insufficient privileges to add or remove a driver.

Hey, again. Thank you for all the help so far. I'll be trying that very soon (once I get a few minutes free).
Hopefully this'll fix the problem. :)

Well, I did manage to uninstall all the drivers (Albeit, I didn't use DriverSweeper as the site said it was no longer available), and I've been reinstalled afterwards...still no luck...
:unsure: :)
I'll try to see if I can find some other alternative...
