Hi!

I have a problem with the Sigmatel High Definition Driver for Windows XP SP3 on Boot Camp. It does not install

I've downloaded the driver from Gateway Support Site Map , but when I run the file in Windows XP on Boot Camp, the following error message shows up:

"Device Object not found..."

When I go to 'Device Manager' in Windows, it says that the sound card is not recognized at all.

Any ideas on a solution?

Specs:
- iMac 24'
- Windows XP SP3
- Boot Camp v2.0
- Sound Card: Sigmatel (?) High Definition Audio Driver
QUOTE Thanks

Hi, again!

I got it working now. The problem was that I thought the audio driver was of SigmaTel, but it was actually a RealTek card!

So, I found the RealTek drivers on the Leopard DVD 1 Disc, and succesfully installed them! No "Object blabla not found" this time! =)

But...when I rebooted there were almost no sound at all! I had to wheel up the volknobs to maximum to hear any sound from Windows!

So, I downloaded the newest drivers from http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/...3&DownTypeID=3, installed them, rebooted, and whóla! =)

Hope this will help someone!

Thanks for posting your solution - so often people post "never mind, I fixed it..." without saying how, and we wind up seeing the problem again soon after. That really helps. Anyway, glad it worked out for you.
