I accidentally deleted my sound driver for Windows XP the other day. I did not realize I had done this until I reset my computer and a window popped up saying "Searching for Sound Driver on High Definition Bus". However it could not find any downloads for it, nor software to reinstall. Thus whenever I log on it keeps popping up and I have no sound.

Does anyone know where I can get a free download for a Windows XP Home edition sound driver? Without referring me to the Microsoft page. Last time I downloaded something from Microsoft it screwed up my computer, hence me having to delete allot of things.

Howdy Dangen...

Just download Everest from below and when you open it at the top you will see "Reports" run a report in HTML and copy and paste what type of sound card and driver you have (it will tell you) also there will be a blue link that it gives you..You can click on that and it will take you to a download site.. But just to be sure let us know what it says..

Hey Geek73

I ran the everest report but I couldn't find anything that specifically stated what sound card and driver I should have. Nor a blue link to a download page for it. Should this be at the top of the report?

The closest thing to this that I found was this;
<excuse the copy and paste...>

[ Sound, video and game controllers / Audio Codecs ]

Device Properties:
Driver Description Audio Codecs
Driver Date 7/1/2001
Driver Version 5.1.2535.0
Driver Provider Microsoft
INF File wave.inf
Hardware ID MS_MMACM

[ Sound, video and game controllers / Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus ]

Device Properties:
Driver Description Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus
Hardware ID HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0883&SUBSYS_10250000&REV_1000
Location Information Internal High Definition Audio Bus

[ Sound, video and game controllers / Legacy Audio Drivers ]

Device Properties:
Driver Description Legacy Audio Drivers
Driver Date 7/1/2001
Driver Version 5.1.2535.0
Driver Provider Microsoft

Hardware ID MS_MMDRV

[ Sound, video and game controllers / Legacy Video Capture Devices ]

Device Properties:

INF File wave.inf
Hardware ID MS_MMVCD

[ Sound, video and game controllers / Media Control Devices ]

Device Properties:
Driver Description Media Control Devices
Driver Date 7/1/2001
Driver Version 5.1.2535.0
Driver Provider Microsoft
INF File wave.inf
Hardware ID MS_MMMCI

[ Sound, video and game controllers / Video Codecs ]

Device Properties:
Driver Description Video Codecs
Driver Date 7/1/2001
Driver Version 5.1.2535.0

Hardware ID MS_MMVID

Now it's probably just that I'm not sure what I'm looking for because I can be a little technologically impaired. The only thing relating to sound at the top where all the links are is this;

Multimedia:
Audio Adapter ATI SB450 - High Definition Audio Controller

Does any of that help or have I missed something?

blkeen, you should always start your own thread instead of hijacking someone else's thread. Solutions are specific to a poster and his computer and posting multiple threads into one thread confuses the issue and reduces the quality of advice both to you and the original poster.
