No Audio XP Pro 64 Bit New install

No Audio XP Pro 64 bit. I have a Sony Vaio 32 bit laptop that apparently was only configure to run Vista. I installed Windows XP Pro 64 bit on it and I am having a horrible time. No matter what I do I can't get rid of the yellow tag on device manager for IDT High Definition Audio CODEC.

I have tried 6 different types of driver detectors and 10 different drivers and none have worked. I have done everything I could and I still have no sound. I've downloaded every fix in every forum I could find for over 60 hours now and I still can't get anywhere.

I also have yellow flags on secondary ide channel, other devices, modem on high definition audio bus, ethernet controller, and two unknown devices. I really don't care about anything but the audio, however I figured one of these might be part of the problem. My audio device is FUNC_01&VEN_8384&DEV_7662&SUBSYS_104d1e00&REV_1002.

Thanks for any help!

More about audio install
  1. Never, never, never, never, EVER install XP Pro 64-bit on a PC that did not ship with it. The drivers are VERY hard to get and buggy. It was simply a stop-gap until Vista 64-bit was released, and Microsoft quickly dropped support for it.

    If you need access to over 4GB of memory install Windows 7 64-bit.
  2. I would never install a bulky 64bit OS on a 32bit machine, it will be overtasked trying to run the OS itself, if at all. Install the 32bit XP Pro and be done with it, you seem to only run 2GB of RAM anyways. You want a x64bit OS ? Buy a x64bit machine. You can install a 32bit OS on a 64bit machine and run slower than potential, but not the other way around.
  3. Laptops are mfg. dependent and drivers for other OSs may not be available.
  4. I downloaded the driver from sony, Sigmatel High Definition Audio (Windows 64-bit). It does say that it was made for Vista and that some functions might not work on XP. However I still get the following yellow flags and still no audio.

    I also have three unknown yellow flags:
    Location 65535 (Internal High Definition Audio Bus)
    on Intel(R) ICH8M LPC Interface Controller - 2815
    Device ID: PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2815&SUBSYS_00000000&REV_03\3&B1BFB68&0&F8
    Driver: C:\WINDOWS\system32\DRIVERS\isapnp.sys, 5.02.3790.3959 (English), 2/17/2007 00:31:18, 14336 bytes
    on Intel(R) ICH8M LPC Interface Controller - 2815

    Sigmatel High Definition Audio CODEC (for 64-bit windows)
    I can run Linux Live on it and it works great. I wonder if there is a way I can somehow use the Linux driver? I know that is a stretch, however I am desperate!
  5. Again, you're running x64 software on x32 hardware, you can listen to professionals or go your own way and stop complaining.
