Hello,
My MOBO
ASRock - G41M-LE/H
Audio - 7.1 CH Windows® Vista™ Premium Level HD Audio (VIA® VT1708S Audio Codec)

I'm running XP Pro (32bit) I have no sound, or devices capable of playing sound.

I can't install the codec that's already on the CD. There is nothing in my Device Manager, and I can't search/add anything related to sound....So Does my MB have integrated sound(It's supposed to)? What do I need to do?

This is my system to a T...http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/core-2-overclock,2310.html

I have only the OS and any CD/Drivers that came with the newly purchased hardware...all freshly built/installed.

Please help!

KB888111 can be installed on top of SP3. Follow the instructions below.



1) Use 7-zip or WinRAR to extract

2) Extract KB888111XPSP2.exe to a folder such as C:\KB888111XPSP2

3) Open Device Manager, search for the Unknown PCI device

4) Right click on the Unknown PCI device to update the driver

5) Point the driver path to this C:\KB888111XPSP2\commonfiles\



It should be able to update. Install the audio driver on your machine. Good luck!

Then I found that if I installed all my HP or Toshiba drivers before I install XP SP3 I have success. To install Realtek or KB88811, XP SP3 must be removed.

Thank you
Serious replies only please....use the CD and install all?

Did you even read my post?

To clarify things, When I 'install all from my CD' I get the "We can't find HD audio device"

The CD and ASRock website codec aren't working, mainly b/c there isn't any audio device to recognize...

I'm having the exact same problem, drivers won't work and it refuses to find the onboard sound. I went into BIOS and changed it from "auto" to "enabled" but it didn't do anything, anybody have a fix?

I too faced the same problem when I did a fresh install of Windows XP. I later installed XP service pack 2 (SP2) and then ran the VIA audio driver installation again. This time it worked fine. Try it out.
