    Hi there,

    Running Win 7 64-bit, at some point I had to do a repair install because of a corrupt file in CBS.Log that I couldn’t get rid of. I was aware of that after running the command line: sfc /scannow. My problem is that after the repair install, I was trying to update a Device Driver “High Definition Audio Controller” that was shown as out-of-date by Driver Detective. Every time I run the .exe file to update the driver, I would end up at the end of the setup process with the following error message:

    << We can’t find HD Audio Device >>

    Then, after clicking OK for that message and clicking “Next” on the Setup Window, another message would follow: (See also File attachment)

    "SETUP LOG:
    Installed components:
    None

    fail to Installed components:
    VIA HD Audio Codec Driver v7.9.00.24.100129 :0xfffffffe"

    The weird thing is that I dont't have any problem with my Audio system on the computer. Windows Media Center and Windows Media Player for that matter are working just fine. I did surf some other forums on the web, but to no avail. So many different solutions to the same problem. I came out with the impression that most of the answers were wild guesses. I am hoping to be luckier at WS Lounge.

    Can anyone give me a hint on how to resolve this issue?. That would be very much appreciated.

    Are you sure you downloaded the 64-bit driver?

    Does device manager identify your audio device as the correct type?

    Answer: Ted Pacheco

    I am pretty sure te driver is a 64-bit one since I downloaded it directly from "Driver Detective" which is an app installed on my PC to warn me every time I have some outdated drivers.
    As a matter of fact if I try anything that is 32-bit, I would be greeted with a message warning me about my wrongdoing.
    When I tried to update the same driver In Device Manager, Win 7 would come up with the ordinary result "The best driver is already installed on your computer". Bottom line is the driver is indeed
    out-of-date because when I compare its version and the issuing date with those that Driver Detective is proposing, the one installed on my PC is really behind.

    To answer your second question. I don't recall having to ever update "High Definition Audio Controller"; it was already installed on my PC which is only three-year old. So, it should be the correct type and the truth of the matter is I have never had any problem updating my drivers from Driver Detective before the repair install.

    Thanks for helping.

    Ted Pacheco
