I don't n know much about computers but I try anything before I ask for help.
So this is what happened
I had an old windows 10 build that wanted to upgrade all the time and after that gave me a blue screen, finally I gave up and did a clean install.
I now have windows 10, build 1709 x86 based systems on a medion notebook
My audio device and sound were gone after the install. Roll back not possible. I guess it was incompatible.
Windows update told me the notebook was completely updated. Troubleshooter didn't detect any problems.
I tried driver update with Driver Easy but this tool keeps saying drivers have to be updated although device manager says the driver is updated.
I got code 10 This device cannot start. Insufficient system resources exist to complete the API. I tried to fix that to no avail. I try to find upper and lower
filters to delete them but I couldn't find them. I do not know much about the registry. I needed to create more memory? but the file name PoolMessageMaximum already existed and I couldn't do that.
I also got code 13 in device manager with system Intel Atom Processor 12C Controller.
Driver uninstall and restart didn't work also, or detect hardware changes.
So I finally downloaded:
This download installs the System-on-a-Chip (SOC) drivers for Intel® Compute Stick STCK1A32WFC, for the following system devices: Audio. (and more)
Now I have
an audio device but no sound.
The code 13 is also fixed and gone.
and the realtek I2S audio codec is fixed although I do not have realtek in the device manager anymore.
I attached a snapshot of the device manager what I have downloaded so far in sounds video and game controllers but didn't work.
Realtek had a yellow triangel.
After the SOC driver install I got audio inputs and outputs in the device manager.
I have attached snapshots.
Please help and let me know what other info you need. I am afraid my netbook is too old for this new windows version.
kind regards seja
