Default High Definition Audio Driver

I've installed Vista Basic on a ASUS P5VDC-MX motherboard everything
installed fine except for the Video Drivers which I downloaded from VIA and
it works fine, the only problem I have now is with the High Definition Audio
Controller, it shows in device manager with a yellow ! and says something
about can not find enough free resources.
I removed the driver and restarted the system, it found new hardware and
installed saying successful and to restart the system which I did and it's
still the same.
The audio in sound controllers appear to look ok.

Default High Definition Audio Driver

I would check with Asus for Vista driver, it may have installed a basic
driver through the operating system but it may not be working right. Check
Asus.

If you can't find it on the Asus web site, try

http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/...Audio%20Codecs

You can download it either as a .zip file or an executable, whichever your
preference.

Default High Definition Audio Driver

I tried installing the driver from the Realtek site but it's still the same.
Asus says the motherboard is not supported with Vista, I don't know why, my
suppliers and others here are still selling them.
I had a problem with the PCI cards/slots not working on this board after a
BIOS update so I downgraded the BIOS and everything worked, ASUS posted a
new BIOS last week which I decided to try that out to see if it fixed the
PCI problem which I think maybe the cause of the High definition audio, I
tried downgrading again but it will not let me.

Clayton,

If you can't get your sound working, you can always install a Vista
compatible sound card, provided you have a motherboard slot in which to
install it. Creative has several Vista compatible sound cards available.

Default High Definition Audio Driver

In the BIOS, of course, Plug and Play OS should be "Yes", if that option is
there. Try uninstalling the PCI Bus in Device Manager and let Windows
automatically reinstall it. This will then include
rediscovering/reorganizing the allocations for all the devices under it,
when your computer is restarted. (In the Menu bar, choose "View devices by
connection", to see the list).

Make sure the driver from Realtek is the Vista compatible one.

Uninstalling the PCI Bus didn't work either

You might want to check also to make sure you installed the Chipset
Drivers. And while Asus has Hi Def drivers for my board(p5b) they are
not signed yet.

Hope this helps.

Default High Definition Audio Driver

I've seen in the past that certain motherboards don't like certain PCI slots
used, and it effectively disables an onboard device's PCI capabilities. In
other words, sometimes what you see is not what you get. The slot is there,
I guess, if you choose to disable the onboard device in the BIOS, and want
to use the resources for something else; however, you can't use the slot if
you don't want the onboard device disabled. As to which slot that is is not
always apparent. If you have an empty slot, try moving the cards around to
create a different empty slot, until you figure out which slot is
interfering with the onboard sound's resources. Or try taking them all out,
adding them one at a time, until you see which slot seems to cause the
conflict with you sound device.
