Thank you for joining the Intel communities.
Could you please provide me with the Asus tablet model to better assist you?
It's a VivoTab Smart, which came loaded with Win8. It runs on an Atom, Z2760, if that helps. The Asus model # is ME400C.None of the update avenues worked, Windows, Asus LiveUpdate, and Intel's driver update software failed to see or do anything about the missing driver. Actually, at this point, Win10 only sees it as an unknown device.
Basically any drivers available for your system will be at the ASUS website.
Unfortunately from our end we don’t have this driver available, but you can try the following steps:
Select the unknown device you see there.
Right click on it and select Update Driver Software.
Click Browse my computer for driver software.
Click let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer and see if you can choose one of the drivers that usually appear there.
If it does not work because you don’t have a driver there follows these steps:
Select the unknown device in the device manager.
Right click on it and select properties.
Click the dropdown and select hardware ids, you will see under the values, one or more than one option, copy the first one and paste it in Google, like that you might be able to find the driver.
I hope this can help you, other than that you will need to contact the manufacturer for support.
No, unfortunately Asus has been basically useless. I made another support request, maybe...
There is no information regarding this driver on their site available to a search.
Nor is there on this, the driver info I pulled from the event logs:
or this, for a full text from the log:
I’m sorry to hear that you’re not able to find the driver from ASUS; unfortunately we don’t have this driver and ASUS should be able to help you better than we do. This is an OEM system and the drivers and software needs to be provided by your system manufacturer. I tried to look for this driver at the download center from Intel but it looks like is not available there; maybe you could download it with Windows update.
So, Asus makes and sells a tablet, keeps no audio driver files for the Intel audio device used with its product, Intel has no record of it, like they never had anything to do with it, nor Microsoft, who I thought would be the single largest repository of Windows compatible drivers. After hours of searching and refusing to pay for any number of driver software utilities of dubious use and safety, I find the files I need at DevID. It's working fine, no troubles after 3 hours of music and 1 hour of streaming video. This driver is dated Jan.8 2013, so it didn't come with Win10.
Summary, do you want a copy for your files?
If you would to post the link where you downloaded the driver for others customers to get benefit of it that will be great and really appreciated.
