Common problem with Realtek Audio Driver installation
Question: Realtek High Definition Audio is on the motherboard. Attempts to install drivers for it, from various sources including the CD supplied with the computer as 'XP Drivers', a file recommended by DriverDetective and one from Realtek site, fail towards the end of the installation process with a cryptic 'failed' message. One error code announced is 0xE0000227 Does anyone know what this means and what has generated it? I wonder if anyone else has encountered this sort of problem with sound in a dual boot? The Vista installation partition is Hidden and Vista has not been booted at all when I try these installations. The Installshield runs for quite a long time, extracting many files and it is almost at the end of a progress bar when it fails. This seems to imply that it thinks it is installing to the correct hardware??
ANSWER: I searched Google using the error code you provided and found this problem to be very common. The most common solution was this:
1) open device manager click "system devices" disable "microsoft UAA bus driver for high definition audio"
2)uninstall "UAA bus driver" make rescan devices (Note: Not all had this step. You may want to skip it.)
3) install realtek driver the realtek driver includes the UAA driver too.
