    After a clean install my realtek HD audio (integrated in mainboard) doesn't install correctly.
    It's listed under system devices with a yellow triangle. The realtek drivers could be installed fine before the clean install, but not anymore. If I search for the driver manually in the folder it says there are no new drivers there, but I'm sure they are.
    I've already tried uninstalling the device and trying again, but it doesn't work. It is enabled in bios.

    Any ideas why it suddenly doesn't work anymore?

    Have you tried this?
    Maybe it will help
    The Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) High Definition Audio driver for Windows may be corrupted or causing problems with the audio driver installation.
    To resolve this, try the following:

    1. Click Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs.
    2. Look for the following two items: Realtek High Definition Audio Driver and High Definition Audio driver Package - KB888111.
    3. If these items are listed in Add/Remove programs, remove them.
    4. Restart Windows.
    5. Download the latest audio driver for your PC.
    6. Double-click the filename to extract the files.
    7. Go to the folder where the files have been extracted and browse to the \HDAQFE\xpsp2\us\ folder or the \MSHDQFE\Win2K_XP\us\ folder. (The name of this folder depends on your PC model.)
    8. Double-click the file kb888111xpsp2.exe to install the High Definition Audio Driver Package.
    9. Restart Windows.
    10. Install the audio driver.

    If it doesnt work,try searching in internet for some drivers

    Sorry, should have said that.
    Windows 7 ult x64 sp1 and I don't know the mainboard. It's an asus k73SV notebook.
    Is there any chance it happens because I slipstreamed all post sp1 updates into install.wim using dism?

    And nero100, isn't that for xp?

    Have you tried running the installer under Compatibility Mode (Vista)?

    Also the BIOS setting you mentioned; can you confirm that it is set to Enabled rather than i.e. Auto?

    It can only be enabled or disabled, I tried setting it to disabled and then enabled again to see if it helps but the problem is still there. So yes it's enabled.
    I'll try compatibility mode.

    Atleast you learn something from the 101 time. The next problem is probably myself. 9 chances out of 10 I'll forget therealtek driver needs te be installed first and I'll only think about it when the chipset drivers are already installed. And how hard I try to remember that, it will happen at some point in the future. And then I'll say to myself: dammit you're an idiot! :rolleyes:

    EDIT: Maybe I'm lukky I couldn't go to pukkelpop afterall...

    EDIT 2: I didn't do the clean install yet because of lazyness and the fact that my new external hdd arrives tomorrow and I'm waiting for that.
    But I just discovered that windows recognizes the realtek fine now after enabling the post sound which is part of asus fancystart. So it looks like I have to enable the post sound temporary at each clean install to let it be recognized.
