Intel High Definition Audio is not working.

I installed three Intel system driver updates using Microsoft Windows update after my system showed "No Audio Output Device is installed". I checked Control Panel and Device Manager. I saw Intel High Definition Audio is not working and it showed "The drivers for this device are not installed. (Codes 28)". I tried to Update Driver and it showed "Windows was unable to install your Intel High Definition Audio". How can I fix this problem? Thanks.

Hi Silver

The latest Windows update seems to have a bug in it, lots of users are reporting loss of audio after the latest Update

The fix is to go to the support page for your device on the manufacturers website, then download and install the audio device drivers they recommend, those will be compatible with your PC, unlike the ones installed by Windows Update . . .

More than likely on the manufacturers website, rather than Intel Hi-Def Audio, that is Realtek High Definition Audio

I am having the same issue on an

Asus GL553VD

Unfortunately I do not have system restore on.

Where do I find the driver for Intel High Definition Audio online? Windows cannot find it automatically.

Will Microsoft solve this problem in a next update?
