Greetings,

So I was ridding my computer of codecs so I could start sorta fresh with a new set. I went to add and remove programs and started removing the installed codec packs. I must have removed something that shouldn't have because now I have no audio.

However

I do have a yellow exclamation mark under Device Manager. It says PCI Device. Under the hardware id it says it's 8086 (Intel) and a 27D8 (High Definition Audio). I tired to download the sound driver and installed it but that didn't work. I tried installing the chipset software (drivers) but that didn't work either.

I have tried to install Realtek High Definition Audio software (which was in there before) but that did nothing.

Restore is turned off :thumbsup:

I am using a Toshiba Satellite A100 Laptop with Windows XP Home.


Short of wiping the HD clean, I am willing to try anything.

Have you tried system restore? Roll back your computer prior to the delete.

I have read that UAA could have something to do with it. I am using XP SP3 and am told it should be included but I do not see it listed in Device Manager and I do not know how to get it back.

Does anyone know anything about the UAA and if this could be my issue?

I downloaded SP3 for XP (even though I already had it installed) and re-installed it. After the reboot, it told me that it was the High Definition Audio Buss (something along those lines) and it asked me if I wanted to search for an existing driver. I said yes and it found it and installed it.

I know I have done this in the past and can never remember how to fix it. I would have saved hours if I could remember.
