Solved IDT High Definition Audio Codec - SOLUTION

November 22, 2010 at 14:46:37
Specs: Windows XP, 2 GB

Just stating that I do not have a problem anymore, I had this problem and solved it. I am giving a SOLUTION to the problem so the people who come across this issue can find the answer much easier.

I was installing Windows XP Professional on a Dell Dimension E310 for a customer of mine. After the OS was installed, I started to install the drivers..chipset, network, video, audio..etc. After I was finished, the only thing that had a yellow ! at the end of it was "IDT High Definition Audio CODEC"
I tried looking up the CODEC and found it off CNET's web site. I downloaded it and installed it. It seemed like it was going to install and it went pretty far into the driver install then I got a

"Cannot Setup this Device. Code 10" error message.

I couldn't figure it out for the life of me. I tried looking up this code and NOBODY had a SOLUTION to the problem. After an hour with messing around with this, I went into the driver details and found the driver I was looking for.

ftp://ftp.dell.com/audio/R107035.EXE

Once I installed that, it worked. It came up as Sigmatel High Definition CODEC instead of IDT High Definition Auidio CODEC.
So since my problem is solved, I am making this post so if someone else is having the same problem, they can just download the driver above and it will solve their problem. Thanks!

Hey there, sorry to hear about that. Go to your desktop, right click on my computer go to properties.

Click on hardware tab

click Device Manager

Now, anything with a yellow "?" mark, should be something like "Audio or Sound"

Now right click on the missing driver with the yellow ? and click properties.

Click on the "Details" tab.

Now, in that drop down list (Property) the Hardware Ids is selected.

Then you will see something that says

HDAUDIO\FUN_01&VEN_(numbers)&DEV_ <so on>

I want you to follow that path on this web site and download that particular driver and install it. See if that helps. If not, email me. AaF1218@aol.com I can help out!

Chris

Go to this site and try to navigate to that driver with the Hardware Ids.

You got the Code 10 because you installed the wrong driver:

All you had to do was google Dimension E310 drivers & you would have found what you needed:

I already did that. Where do you think I got all the other drivers???

If it's already on Dell's web site, then how comes when you go to the Audio portion, it only gives the SigmaTel Driver R114282.exe, that covered the Audio portion. But there is an Audio Codec driver that is NOT on the E310's driver downloads. I looked under Driver Instances in my computer and it gave me the following for the codec driver:

R107035.EXE

That file isn't under Dell E310's Audio. So that's why I had so much trouble figuring out what was going on. I'm a computer tech and been doing this for 10+ years, the manufacture web site is the first place I go to for drivers when doing a new OS install.

Thank you so much. I had lost sound in one speaker for a year and had long since given up trying to fix it. Then I came across your post and I have my sound back.

You are welcome! Glad I was able to help you! This problem definately sucked a lot for a lot of people. Dell doesn't give the correct codec driver for the E310. It took me a little while to figure it out but I did. I am sorry to those who have this issue, you can thank Dell for such a wonderful driver support page. If you have any questions on any other computer issues, you can e-mail me aaf1218@aol.com . I'm a computer tech that works remotely with anybody. Just send over the questions and I'll get back to you asap! Thanks!

To Aaf1218, I'm sumwhat of a Numb Nutt when it comes to computers and have been dealing with my sound issue for about 8 months up untill now! I have tried everything from every post, web site (Dell included!) & every so called expert and nothing worked?!?! I have damn near spent about 7 to 8 hours trying to fix my problem but after stumbling up on your post it literally took me about 5 minutes to fix. Although I have learned some things (always a good thing) I wish I would've ran into this a long time ago, THANKS!
