[SOLVED] Windows 2000 does not detect I/O sound ports

Recommended Posts

Hello, this is my first post here, but alas, it is a question.

I have recently installed a copy of Windows 2000 Advanced Server SP4 on a Compaq SR5610F which had originally run Vista. After some of Vista's black screens of death it was decided to start fresh...               with Windows 2000.  After a couple driver problems the computer ran smoothly and I installed Blackwingcat's KernelEX, (Amazing project!) Media player 10, .net framework 1.0-4.0, VC++ 2005-2010 redistributable, IE6 SP1 & 3, Chrome, Firefox, and all post SP4 updates except for an update for Microsoft Data components 2.8 that would not install at all.

During this time there was no sound whatsoever on the computer. Windows 98 era speakers that are hooked up correctly and work flawlessly are not at all recognized by W2K. Another set of speakers and headphones were also tested, but to no avail. A new Realtek sound driver was also installed but it didn't help fix the problem.

I have been led to believe that the W2K is simply not able to detect the audio device ports on the computer. The computer has one port on the front and another one in the back and none of them are recognized. There are two unknown devices in the device manager that could be the source of the problem. https://imgur.com/4JsBBNC

Help is greatly appreciated!

Which HardwareID matches the unknown devices?

Which audio driver did you install?

https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c01530047
Seems to be a HD Audio ALC 888 chipset.

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/888111/universal-audio-architecture-uaa-high-definition-audio-class-driver-ve
Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) High Definition Audio class driver is required first.

Try Realtek R2.74 drivers

How can I view the Hardeware ID? I tried using "set DEVMGR_SHOW_DETAILS=1" but it never showed up.

I had already installed the Realtek R2.74 drivers and installed them again using the link you gave to me.

Unfortunately, the UAA High Definition Audio class driver didn't help fix the issue. https://imgur.com/d1sMaGz

The realtek 0001-WDM_R274.zip expanded.
There is a file MSHDQFE\Win2K_XP\us\kb888111w2ksp4.exe

I wonder: does kb888111w2ksp4.exe support 2000 Advanced Server SP4?

Did you run kb888111w2ksp4.exe?

kb888111w2ksp4.exe expanded
0001-WDM_R274\WDM_R274\MSHDQFE\Win2K_XP\us>kb888111w2ksp4.exe /x:.

There is a file WDM_R274\MSHDQFE\Win2K_XP\us\commonfiles\hdaudbus.inf
%HDAudio.DeviceDesc% = HDAudio_Device, PCI\CC_0403

Does 'devcon hwids *cc_0403' list the 'PCI Device' ?
What does list 'devcon driverfiles *cc_0403' ?

Does device manager list a system device '* UAA Bus Driver for High Definition Audio' ?
If not, then select the 'PCI Device' update drivers and choose the MSHDQFE\Win2K_XP\us\commonfiles directory.

Are drivers installed?
Then reboot. Do you get new hardware 'Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus'?

WDM_R274\WDM\HDXRT.INF
"Realtek High Definition Audio" = IntcAzAudModel, HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0888
This should match the HD Audio ALC 888 chipset.

Does 'devcon hwids *HDAUDIO*' list a new device?
Which HardwareId does devcon list?
Does match 'HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0888*' ?

Try the WDM_R274\WDM directory anyway.

My crystal ball asks for a break ;)

It said that that DevCon.exe is bundled with Visual Studio. I have the 2005 version, but there is no DevCon.exe.

It closes as soon as I open it. I made sure I was using the 32-bit version.

Only for the record, devcon became Open Source (and redistributable), and here there is also a pre-compiled build (though it has to be seen if it works on 2K) here:

Same thing occurs. :o

Okay the sound is now working, however the volume control icon does not appear on the taskbar even when "Show volume control on taskbar" is enabled.

EDIT: A simple reboot made it appear on the taskbar.

I wasn't sure how to use DevCon but I got this to pop-up in the Command Prompt.

Quote

devcon.exe Usage: devcon.exe [-r] [-m:\\<machine>] <command> [<arg>...]
For more information type: devcon.exe help

There is still one unknown device in the Device Manager named "PCI Simple Communication Controller"

Thank you for the help so far.

I don't know Advanced Server from Professional, but maybe the first link here will work:

@broken120x120

Open a command prompt, that is in Start->All Programs->Accessories->Command Prompt.

You will have a black background Window, with something like:

C:\Documents and Settings\yourloginname>

and a flashing underscore.

In this window type:

devcon.exe hwids *cc_0403*

and press [ENTER]

What happens?[1]

jaclaz

[1] You will need to change the current path to where you actually stored the downloaded devcon.exe, to change path (to - say - D:\Downloaded\devocndir ) type:

CD /D D:\Downloaded\devcondir

and press [ENTER]
