I have just bought a new PC built by a friend. Mother board is intel D945GTP with NH82801 chipset and 2 x 512 DDR2 RAM 533mhz FSB. It also has an nVidia GeForce 6600GT Graphics card.
We have installed XP Home and Office2003.
We cannot get the onboard Audio to work and keep getting the annoying error box hDevice=ffffffff. When we run the Installer Driver CD it says the Graphics Accelerator and Audio "Failed".
Can anyone help PLEASE!!!!!

Go to intel site and download drivers for the on board sound chipset, might be Realtek, or similar, but make sure it's for your make and model.

Thanks for that. Ended up downloaded a Sigmatel driver which did the trick. This was after emailing intel helpdesk.
Still cant get rid of the annoying error message though. At this stage I am not aware of any problems caused by this but would be good to get rid of it. Any suggestions?
