Same problem with installing Realtek drivers.

Did you install the "The High-Definition (HD) Bus Driver from Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 888111" that is listed as "must be installed BEFORE installing this SoftPaq"? for both the ADI SoundMAX AD1984A Audio Driver for Microsoft Windows XP and the IDT High-Definition (HD) Audio Driver?

Yes I've installed it. But Service Pack 3 already include it. – purple Jan 3 '12 at 2:03
