HD audio driver won't install HD audio 1.00.00.59 won't install under 64-bit Win 7
Hi-- Can anyone tell me why the motherboard driver that nVidia identifies as beeing the correct one for my computer won't install?

I'm having problems getting audio over HDMI to my HDTV. I am running a Shuttle computer with a NVIDIA GeForce 7050 PV / NVIDIA nForce 630a chipset, using 64-bit Windows 7. HDMI audio was fine until a few weeks ago, when I suddenly lost it.

To fix the problem, I reinstalled the computer's Realtek digital audio drivers. Then I tried installing the most recent nVidia drivers from the nVidia website. I used the site's driver locater, and it identified the 260.99 driver installer as the correct set of display drivers. Those drivers installed without problem. For the motherboard driver, it identified the HD Audio WHQL 1.00.59 installer as the correct set.

I ran the WHQL installer and got a error message saying that the installer's drivers aren't compatible with my hardware. I am puzzled by this error, since the WHQL installer was identified by the nVidia web site as being the driver set for my motherboard.

Can anyone shed any light on this problem? Is there a problem with this driver set? I've seen lots of people with HDMI audio problems similar to mine, but no solutions that work. I have tried all of the usual steps with the Playback Devices page in the Soundcontrol panel. Any help appreciated. Thanks.

I could not get Realtek drivers to work in Windows 7 64bit, so I use Microsoft High def. sound driver.

I use Nvidia 270.61,(1.2.22.1, something like that).

Away mode, is not compatible with 7 64bit.

Do you have a link to the Microsoft high def sound driver that you used? Thanks a ton!

Cant give you a link, I did not have to search for it, I believe it was native to 7 when I set it up.

When I tried to install realtek driver's, I was, in a sense told "no".

And the Nvidia driver were prompted automatic when I use the cd to install my graphics card drivers.

So, try unistalling your sound driver's and re-boot your pc and let windows search device driver's.
