Help me please i cannot get the Idt High definition audio to work on my laptop. it worked with vista fine, but when i downgraded now it doesnt work at all, i tried every driver in the world possible, every hotfix talked about none of them work, most of them don't install since they don't have 64 bit versions.

I am missing the Microsoft UAA BUS in my device manager and i cannot find a 64bit version of that.
I Read about kb88111, but they don't have a 64bit version or at least one that works for me.

Please what can i do to fix this?? i am running windows xp pro x64 sp2 on a gateway p-6860fx, which is designed for windows vista, but i did a clean install of windows xp x64 with sp2

thank you

You must extract the fies to a folder and then manually install the drivers. This guide should be a good reference for you:
*note: your not installing wireless drives as in the guide - it will just show you how to do it though.
good luck.

Maybe we can walk through and find the drivers from the manufacturers...
1. Right Click on My Computer, Left click on Manage.
2. Click on Device Manager, you should notice on the right hand side icons with a yellow symbol next to them, this shows the device is unknown, or drivers are not installed.
3. Right click a device you are looking for, left click on properties.
4. Click on the Details tab on the top of the menu that popped up.
5. You should see some code in the middle that looks similar to this:
The important peices are:
  VEN_14E4    is    Vendor 14E4
  DEV_169C    is    Device 169C    for     Vendor    14E4

You can take this information to the website http://www.pcidatabase.com and find the specific device information for the drivers, then go to the manufacturer website and see if they make drivers for Windows XP, some hardware is Vista specific and the manufacturer's do not have driver support for Windows XP.

*Once you are in the Vendor and are searching for the Device you can hold CTRL and press 'F'.
-This is the Find feature, type in the Device ID and it will find it much quicker, since some pages are quite long.

Hope this helps!
