I have no sound on my "ECS H77H2-M3" motherboard, installed the Realtek driver from the official driver page but no yet there is no sound, I understood I have to install a patch "KB888111" but when I try to install it I get this error "This KB888111Srvw2k3 is for a different hardware platform." What to do ? How to solve my issue ?
Thank you in advance.
OS: Windows Server 2003 x64 (latest SP and updates)
make sure you've downloaded the right patch. If you downloaded this from a computer other than the 2k3 system, and let the site autodetect, you might have downloaded the XP version.
If you're on this page: http://support.microsoft.com/hotfix/KBHotfix.aspx?kbnum...
at the bottom of "section 1" click the link to expose the downloads for all platforms and languages.
Sorry, I was too quick in my first response. You're right, only x86.
But after googling some, I'm not sure you need this patch if you're running the latest SP on 2003.
If you've installed the right driver from RealTek, and there are no hardware issues in Device Manager, then I would start troubleshooting else where (physical connections, volume/device configuration settings, headphones instead of speakers, etc).
