post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
hi guys.
i have recently installed sp 3 for xp, since then i get this found new hardware box telling me it wants to install high definition audio bus. Everything seems to be working ok. i have downloaded a separate package (ATI) with the HDAB driver and installed it, does that completely but when i reboot, same thing . Any advice ?

What's happening is the built-in audio controller on your 3870 wants to output sound through your computer speakers, as opposed to through an HDMI connection (which is what it's obviously meant for). The way to disable this is by going to Control Panel / Sound -- you should see something like 'HDMI Digital Audio Output' on the list. Simply right-click it and hit Disable. It should stop trying to install now when Windows loads.

hiya
thanks again for the advice. did what you suggested, it does not come up with the new hardware window anymore, but if I go to my device manager it still shows High Definition Audio Bus with the ever popular yellow question mark. Everything seems to be working ok though, sound goes through the soundcard, graphics 100% etc. So it seems to be looking for a driver still.
Even if I point it to the installation cd or the separate driver I downloaded it just tells me hardware cannot be installed.
Any ideas anyone ?
