Hello Everybody,

I have searched this term, and there seems to be hundreds of install and fix documents but no.

Here is how it appears in the System Information;

Garmanma,

I thank you.
Your a gentlemen and a scholar ! ,

I have seen this before, and I have viewed that definition, one single time in at least four hrs. of searching and I am positive, I viewed it from your chosen source, however I do not recall how I accessed it, . . if you outsourced that definition from the, "people who have read this , . also read this" category on the side of the editorial, . . I couldn't get that, . . no matter, I may have used the search.

The thing is, . .

What is the purpose of the greyed out column of driver names if you can not access them ?

Is a registration, applicable to using this ?

OK, that seems to be right, but in any case,

What about the ;

Abiosdsk Abiosdsk Kernel Driver Stopped Disabled


Is the status of this driver preventing my PC from installing downloaded programs such as drivers etc. ?

Since I can not get any feedback about abiodsk, can anyone tell me is there a way that restarting this may help the, " No Audio Device " problem, If so how do I restart it ?

As per Garmanma`s explanation. That is used at the very early stages of Windows start-up. A short version. When you first press the power button on a PC, the first thing that is initiated is the BIOS. The BIOS are located on a chip on the mobo. The BIOS then run a hardware check\test on the hardware. Before looking for the hard drive(s) then for the MBR on the drive containing the OS.

A basic explanation HERE.

I believe the reason that driver is being shown in the manner it is, is that it is no longer in use as now that the PC is running under Windows. It is no longer communicating with the BIOS via that driver.

Is it the reason for the problems you mentioned? IMO, no. Am I sure? No.

ThunderZ,
OK, you are referring to the biodsk driver, I look into your info, but if it is disabled that means it isn't coming on then off, . .
and that it is not in use at all. It is puzzling to figure, if it was ever needed at one time, how did it get disabled, . . all this to be answered along the way, I guess it is not part of my audio problem, . . .

At this time I have contacted Realtek and am looking into replacing the SoundMax software with Realtek and see if that will lead me into a new venue, . . as I did have a Compaq Presario
(not the exact model) but close, working with Realtek software at one time.

about that driver;

Name Description

sysaudio Microsoft Kernel System Audio Device


File
c:\windows\system32\drivers\sysaudio.sys

Type Started Start Mode State

Kernel Driver No Manual Stopped


Status Error Control Accept Pause Accept Stop
OK Normal No No



I am guessing this is in a normal condition, but it is manual and that would mean what ?

I`m a bit confused by the disabled status myself. But if that is it`s state by default then I`ll assume it is meant to be that way.

Seem`s I remember reading that you used an OEM disk from one system on another. Is this the machine? If so I believe this is your problem. The cause of which and the fix for it is outside of my knowledge. Sorry.

Affirmative, that is my thought also on the OS, I'll be waiting to see if Realtek has some feedback, . . .maybe some fix has been incorporated into the scheme of things.

Will let you know what comes of it.

Microsoft Kernel System Audio Device
There's actually a download for it on Cnet

http://download.cnet.com/Microsoft-Kernel-...13_4-78520.html

The Microsoft Kernel System Audio Device component provides the SysAudio system driver in the sysaudio.sys file. The SysAudio driver creates the filter graphs that are used to render and capture audio content. This component also includes the wdmaudio.inf file, which provides for the installation of core audio components.
