I am confused by your question. Are you asking if the same driver works on XP Pro 32 bit, as compared to the XP Pro 64-bit I was asking about?
Intel only has one driver for XP on their website.
I also have XP Pro 32-bit loaded as a multi-boot on the same system and the sound driver installed okay.
Thanks for the Realtek link.
And yes, I know that the driver is from Realtek. How could I miss the installer warnings?
The other thing I need to try is the Microsoft update mentioned on Intel's website.
Have you checked whether this driver works on Windows XP? (Make sure to uninstall any other sound driver and software that you have installed previously)
I was referring to the RealTek driver.
Okay, there is no solution.
Intel's website instructs users to download Microsoft's KB901105 update before loading the sound driver, but when I did that I was informed by Windows that the update is older than SP2, so it will not load. Maybe Microsoft forgot to include it in SP2 or maybe this bug will not be solved.
I also tried Major_A's suggestion to download Realtek's driver, but that accomplished nothing.
Now I truly understand what Intel means when its documentation states "The Desktop Board provides minimal BIOS and driver support for the following operating systems: ... XP ..."
P.S. I formatted the drive and started from scratch to make sure my old drivers were not interfering.
I think your problem is rather different. In my opinion, the DH67 boards are very stable for Windows 7. I have loaded lots of them with W-7 Professional or HomePremium with no device driver trouble at all.
I just looked at a DH67CL running W-7 Pro with no sound or video cards. Under "Sound, video and game controllers" I see two listings:
- Intel (R) Display Audio
- Realtek High Definition Audio
I wonder if one of your other devices is causing a conflict.
