I have just built a brand new machine, fresh build of xp etc and would appreciate any input on a problem that has come up. The Gigabyte motherboard I am using has a Realtek HD audio chip, and for the life of me I cannot get the driver into it. The build was all finished and I realised that audio was missing. The category "Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus" within the Device Manager has an exclamation mark, no driver. The motherboard cd runs and reads that all devices are installed. I have tried to individually install the driver from files on the cd but get right to the end and have an error code. I try to update the driver in device manager, it searches, finds the cd, loads the driver and then fails, saying the data is invalid. I have downloaded the driver from Realtek as well but it does the same thing, goes right through the process and then fails at the end. I suspect Windows has decided its file is the only one and refused to change its mind. Any suggestions would be received gratefully :)
