Install Realtek Audio Driver Failure!! Error code: 0xE0000227


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.

  17. IKThanks it really helped. I have one more issue with Intel mother board 945gcnl and realtelk audio driver. Microphone does not work. chkd on google, guys have this problem but no solution other than using microsoft USB head phone. It is working excellent but I want to use rear panel or front panel head phone jacks with normal head phone.
    Please help

  18. MALIK/DXB,

    See if this helps

    in vista go to the sound icon in the control panel, and in the recording tab right click and make sure that there is a check next to
    show disabled devices" and "show disconnected devices" then after you find your MIC, right click on that and select ENABLE.

    If you are not in vista and are on XP, see if going to the bios and switching to normal audio instead of HD helps. I solved a problem with my front panel this way today

    Thanks for response. I am using windows xp. No option available in BIOS to disable HD. Only option is disable onboard audio. which I did and even installed a PCI sound card. problem remained same, i.e audio output frpm sound card was ok but sound thru microphone was not heared or recorded.

  62. Thanks for the fix, but the sound seems to be a little off, sort of slightly high pitched. Anyone else experienced this, and are there any solutions to it?

    Thanks again.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Thanks - thought the hardware died as I had to reinstall win xp after a power failure (luckily my data was all backed up). Sound didn't work after renstalling os and audio driver installation failed.

    I had to take an extra step - so this may help the few who could not fix their problem. I had to disable the UAA bus driver first, before uninstalling it. Otherwise it gave me an error message - something about descendants refusing the uninstall.

    Hope this helps.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Hi.

    I had the same issue, but after hours I can get sound from my motherboard.

    I had to uninstall the UAA sound driver and reinstall the sound driver without rescan the devices at the device manager. EUREKA!!!!

    Thanks a lot, but it is a big microsoft's mistake, it could be fixed as possible they can.

  70. Hi am sorry but i didnt know how to log a new question hence asking you here itself.

    I have bought a nvidia xfs graphics card and intel motherboard and installed windows server 2003 operating system. The driver installation is failing because the drivers are for windows xp.

    I had a similar problem with my realtek audio driver and your solution here solved that problem. So can you please help me with getting the graphics card to recognise also.
