    Default Windows 8 RP Dell M1330 Sigmatel Audio doesn't work

    Hi all,

    I installed windows 8 Release Preview on my Dell. However, Sigmatel Audio doesn't work. That worked on the Consumer Preview with Dell Driver R171786.

    Anyone know what to do to fix this? I have upgrade to latest driver Dell Driver R171786. Still does not work.

    Why did it work with CP but not RP?

    Read through a few of the threads in the Sound and Audio Forum. Perhaps you will find your answer there.

    Got an solution for you:

    Device Manager>Sound, Video and Game Controllers>High Definition Audio

    Disable High Definition Audio

    Restart Computer

    Try to access audio icon in the System Tray (lower right hand corner of Desktop)

    It will tell you that High Definition Audio is disabled and ask if you want to fix it.

    Say yes.

    It will then re-enable High Definition Audio and might ask you to restart

    Then try to install R171786 again and it may install for you as it did for me.

    Hope this helps

    Hi Rivera, would you be good enough to share the driver details for your SATA card please? I'm struggling but as you have successfully installed on an M1330 I know it must be possible - guess I just need to track down the right driver, but I have drawn a blank. Thanks
