    Please tell me the most important steps while integrating SATA drivers in XP. I recently ran the project and burn the DVD but this bootable media is not getting detected on my laptop CQ-40 144-TU, although the BSOD is not appearing during booting process, which earler was the case with Original XP CD.
    Also in the BIOS (version F.12) options the SATA native mode is not showing, the BIOS has no other options in this model.

    Thanx in advance

    hello everyone! i am also having a problem installing the audio driver since i am using xp sp3. can anyone pls give us any idea on how to fix this one? thanks!

  103. Adnan says:

    I did a clean XP pro SP3 install on my CQ40-108TU today following the saysprasad’s step-by-step instructions. After creating audio.bat file and saving in Startup folder, I rebooted my laptop and observed that sound failed to work. It worked OK before reboot though. Please advise resolution as I have stopped installing further drivers beyond Audio, as I want to follow the order given under Intel based laptops. Would appreciate prompt response.

    • saysprasad says:

      Hello Adnan,

      If you are using Windows XP SP3, Im not sure of the patch will work, And if you are using Windows XP SP2, please follow the steps described as here. Please read the steps over and over , may be you have gone wrong in the phase where the UAA address is copied, normally people copies the whole line, rather that the specified part of it.

      Thank you,

      • Adnan says:

        Dear Prasad,

        First of all thank you very much for your prompt response.
        I took my time whist carrying out Audio installation and I am absolutely certian that I followed word for word as you mentioned. The underline part was carefully copied and verified before pasting across. Sound did work the first time until I performed reboot. I also have a feeling that the patch Audio.bat won’t work with SP3, as it generates an error when hotfix kb888111xpsp2.exe is run the first time. The second time it starts Audio services. If possible, can you please provide remedy with SP3.
        I would have to organise an external USB floppy drive so I can install SATA driver if I were to carry out another clean install of XP, this time with SP2.

  104. anhar says:

    thanks boss so i can instal my notebook, thanks boss, i’m from indonesia

  105. Adnan says:

    Just to add to the above comment. using n-lite to slimstream SATA driver with XP installation files does not allow to generate installation ID in windows activation wizard (once installation is completed), as a consequence to that the user does not pass through windows logon screen and remains on the same window.
    Microsoft help support does not recommend using n-lite.

  106. jcgats says:

    i have xp sp3 and the audio is working now. i just followed the steps above. thanks mr.prasad!

    if it’ll not work you can try to uninstall/install the Microsoft UAA Bus driver for High Definition Audio.

  108. joekobamsel says:

    Hello prasad,

    i have compaq CQ40 104TU, i’m trying to install the audio drivers but it is not working. I’m trying to find ISO file for restore driver & i couldn’t find it.
    Please tell me how to install audio drivers, would you tell me the link address for other drivers..


  109. ratan says:

    Can i install windows xp sp2 by following above listed steps or do i need an xp sp3 for my compaq presario cq40 108tu

  110. Adnan says:

    One other way to resolve sound issue is to flash BIOS to f11c. This way one does not have to go through the procedure adopted by devcon utlity. Flashing BIOS, although sounds easy but without floppy drive it requires additional exercise. Notebooks are not coming with flloppy drive therefore, you’d have to create a VIRTUAL floppy drive first (see web sites how to create a virtual floppy drive). This virtual floppy drive can then be used to create a DOS bootable USB thumb drive. Also, copy BIOS files in the same thumb drive and then move USB floppy drive option in top order in boot menu of BIOS settings. Insert USB thumb drive and reboot laptop. The unit would flash BIOS from f12 to f11c and would shut down during this process. Re-start laptop and verify in BIOS settings that BIOS version has indeed changed to f11c. Once that is done than audio driver can be installed from this web site and would start working even if laptop is power cycled several times. This procedure is one time only and I have resovled sound issue using this procedure on my laptop running XP pro with SP3.
