    Can't get IDT High Definition Audio CODEC to work

    Had to reinstall Widows 10. Since then have no sound. Have deleted and reinstalled IDT HD Audio CODEC driver card several times, still won't work. Yellow triangle over device in Device Manager. Please can someone help? Thank you.

    PC Specs. We are in the dark and trying to guess without it.

    If you delete the IDT driver, will Windows install the generic HD Audio Codec driver?

    Hello Fireberd, yes Windows does reinstall the device, but it does not work, has the yellow trinagle over it.

    Open device manager > click on view > click show hidden files > right click on the row > post an image into the thread for
    the general tab > post an image
    driver tab and click driver details (view side by side) > post an image
    click details tab > under properties > scroll to hardware id and to problem code > post an image of each
    Can scroll through the property list to help with the detective work.

    See if these two link can help:

    Hi Fireberd - it says "Reinstall the drivers for this device. (Code 18)". But when I try to reinstall the drivers - or uninstall and let Windows do it, the same error an code comes up. It is stuck in a loop.

    Hi ZBook, in Device Manager on View, there is no option for hidden files, only "show hidden devices"

    DirectX Diagnostic Tool cannot see a sound card. "No sound card was found. If one is expected, you should install a sound driver provided by the hardware manufacturer."
