    Default GA-MA790X-UD4P and Realtek

    At every boot, I am notified of new hardware "Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus" - but I am unable to successfully install it.

    Device Manager says I should reinstall the drivers for the Internal High Definition Audio Bus. But what driver would that be? None of the drivers on my mainboard disk work and nothing I have download from RealTek works.

    My speakers do seem to work (though the volume seems a bit low), but I can't get rid of the nag. There are no other issues in DM.

    WinXP sp3.

    Your Radeon 4550 has a built in Realtek sound processor for the purpose of sound over HDMI. This requires the Realtek ATI HDMI driver which is available from their website. The driver is also included in the latest Catalyst driver package.

    hey, thanks for that. Who knew?

    Its getting hard to find drivers amongst the jungle of services offering to sell what can eventually be found for free.

    Having had no luck with the RealTek drivers I found one from AMD that was just out last Monday. However, after installing it (it installs as a Catalyst driver) and rebooting, I found myself back at the same old square;

    "The hardware was not installed becasue the wizard cannot find the necessary software". I tried installing it manually (ATiHDAud.inf 6/2/9) but that wouldn't go either.

    I can't uninstall the device (needed to boot) nor roll back the driver (no backed up version), nor update (button doesn't work) it from DM.

    OK. I've made it all the way to no sound at all!

    Removed the old ATI drivers from Control Panel, reinstalled frm the display card CD - and presto! No sound device at all.

    You know, it wasn't this hard with Windows 98 on my Iwill K266! What's up with "modern" motherboards?

    I always try the Gigabyte driver updates first. This reduces finding a needle in a haystack.
    Maybe this will help: scroll down and choose your OS----->

    Gigabyte lists the R2.25 driver and I'm already using the 2.26 ...

    Sounds fine (though quiet on DVD output) but it doesn't address the hardware not found issue.

    I tried the latest HDMI driver from Realtek (HDMI_R229) but on install I continue to get

    HD Audio Driver Failure
    H-error code 0xE0000227

    This was at the top of the page when I googled that error code: computerboom: Install Realtek Audio Driver Failure!! Error code: 0xE0000227

    Follow the steps there and see if that works. I recommend you uninstall all sound drivers, reboot, follow the steps in the link then re-install the Realtek sound drivers.

    If you don't want to be nagged about a driver for the GPU sound not being installed, it's OK to disable the component in device manager. This should stop it trying to install drivers for that device.

    Your DVD playback volume is probably nothing to do with this issue, no reason at all why it should be. You sometimes have the option of turning up volume in a program as well as on the task bar. These two volume controls may be independent of each other, ie one could be master volume and the other could be wave out volume.

    Install the ATI Driver and choose custom when installing and then be sure the HDMI is checked. You can safely disable this in device manager and not worry about it at all if you do not use it. Then you would not be asked to install a driver for it
