Topic: [IMPL] Audio IDT driver Dell Optiplex 210L

Hi all, my first post here.

I have just built a universal XP image using your fabulous software, I will donate shortly as it is most definately a handy bit of kit you guys have created.

The only driver missing in my case was audio driver/device: IDT 92HD71B

Is it possible for me to download the driver myself and paste copy into the C:\D directory? Would driverpacks utilize the driver if I did this manually?

I did download the latest XP driver packs, unfortuantely, didn't seem to be included.

Many thanks,

Rob

Donated guys - thanks for the software smile

Re: [IMPL] Audio IDT driver Dell Optiplex 210L

Could you please post HWID's, &/or laptop/desktop model for clarification.

Re: [IMPL] Audio IDT driver Dell Optiplex 210L

sure, it's a Dell Optiplex 210L. It's formatting atm, but service tag is 8nqgb2j if that helps?

If it's not too much trouble, is it easy for me to manually add the driver that I have downloaded from Dell?

Re: [IMPL] Audio IDT driver Dell Optiplex 210L

I would to assume that this is an add-in card, as dell support insists that it has a sigmatel codec.  http://www.dell.com/downloads/global/pr … 10l_en.pdf      http://support.dell.com/support/downloa … p;impid=-1
Please post HWID's with this program linked by OverFlow http://tppc-support.nl/driverpacks/Nigh … eHWIDs.exe

Hey, OverFlow, may i link to this program in my profile?

Re: [IMPL] Audio IDT driver Dell Optiplex 210L

That's interesting, when I typed the PCs service tag into Dell's website, they confirm it is an IDT and offer the driver for download. I will post HWID shortly, just waiting for Windows install to finish

Re: [IMPL] Audio IDT driver Dell Optiplex 210L

The link to eHWIDs.exe didn't work....

Re: [IMPL] Audio IDT driver Dell Optiplex 210L

Use the link in my signature.  None of the tppc-support.nl links work anymore.

Is that what you are looking for sir?

Re: [IMPL] Audio IDT driver Dell Optiplex 210L

no luck with D/S/I/STHDA.inf from SoundB?

Re: [IMPL] Audio IDT driver Dell Optiplex 210L

I used sound a and b, can try manually?

Re: [IMPL] Audio IDT driver Dell Optiplex 210L

Hmmm, I just tried from sound b d/s/i Returned the following:

IDT High Definition Audio Codec

An error occurred during the installaiton of the device

A device attached to the system is not functioning

I assume this is indicating a hardware fault? Or am I wrong?

thanks for your help

Re: [IMPL] Audio IDT driver Dell Optiplex 210L

I think you are right, it isnt an IDT device.

I tried to install the driver from Dell - Wrong driver... Possibly sigmatel?

Re: [IMPL] Audio IDT driver Dell Optiplex 210L

Sorry if I am spamming here - Just to let you know, the Sigmatel driver from the Dell website works.

Am I able to inject this driver manually? If so, would it be possible to provide me with some guidance please?

Rob

Re: [IMPL] Audio IDT driver Dell Optiplex 210L

The driver in SoundB 'D\S\I8\STHDA.INF' is newer than the one on dell's site (07/27/2006,5.10.5143.0 - no 'control panel').  I don't know if it will work for your HW, though.

Re: [IMPL] Audio IDT driver Dell Optiplex 210L

You're correct, it doesn't work. Do I have another option?

Re: [IMPL] Audio IDT driver Dell Optiplex 210L

When I try to install from D\S\I8 I recieve a 'files needed' prompt.

The file 'sthda.sys' on SigmaTel High Definition Audio WDM Driver Disk is needed

Re: [IMPL] Audio IDT driver Dell Optiplex 210L

DriverPack Sound B D\S\I14\STHDA.INF is the closest match.  But still not a direct match.  An .inf edit is required.
Change line 63 (first of the HWIDs) from

%ST.DeviceDesc%=STHDA,HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_8384&DEV_7690&SUBSYS_102801B5
to
%ST.DeviceDesc%=STHDA,HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_8384&DEV_7690&SUBSYS_102801C5

Please report back success/failure so I know whether to make the change in the pack.

Re: [IMPL] Audio IDT driver Dell Optiplex 210L

I see that IDT (Integrated Device Technology) acquired the PC-audio division of Sigmatel in mid 2006, yet the driver you've mentioned is dated mid 2007.  Would this explain the similarity of this driver to the structure of the IDT HDA drivers?  hmm

Perhaps robf's HDA chip was SigmaTel IP with an IDT logo on it.

Hi,

I made the change, unfortunately when I tried to install, I recieved a copy error.

FYI: Setup cannot copy the file staco.dll

Re: [IMPL] Audio IDT driver Dell Optiplex 210L

Odd, staco.dll isn't part of that driver.

Re: [IMPL] Audio IDT driver Dell Optiplex 210L

I have no idea. Just tried Dell driver again and that worked...

Re: [IMPL] Audio IDT driver Dell Optiplex 210L

OK, I'll get that added in to the next release.
Thanks for testing/reporting.

Re: [IMPL] Audio IDT driver Dell Optiplex 210L

No problem at all, thanks for helping me.

Will the next release take some time?

For time being, can I easily add the driver that I downloaded from dell into the pack?

Re: [IMPL] Audio IDT driver Dell Optiplex 210L

Should be very soon now.  wink
