  1. " High Definition Audio Controller Failed. "


    Hi there, guys. I booted up my computer yesterday ( I've had it since 2018 ) and there was no sound.

    I decided to look in Device Manager, and it said that High Definition Audio Controller had failed with the error code:

    This device cannot start. (Code 10)

    {Operation Failed}
    The requested operation was unsuccessful.

    I have tried to uninstall the driver, restart the PC. No Success.

    I checked for windows update. No Success.

    I tried to roll back the driver. I couldn't as it was never updated, it just stopped working out of the blue. No Success.

    And finally today, I just reset my whole pc and wiped the whole thing. Guess what?

    NO SUCCESS.


    HARDWARE:

    Intel I5-8400

    4GB GTX 1050TI

    ASUS PRIME-H310M-K

    1TB Storage

    8GB RAM



    If anyone would be willing to help me, I'd really appreciate it as I have tried a lot of things and it's not working.

    Please and thank you!

    :)

    Code 10 for High Definition Audio Controller

    On an Asus N55SF, upgrading Windows 10 from version 1607 to 1709 (a reset install from USB, since numerous attempts through Windows update had failed to complete) caused havoc in that the High Definition Audio Controller (Device Manager – System devices)
    subsequently refused to start; the dreaded Code 10 error. No such issues ever noted under version 1607.

    Having then tried a host of suggestions posted online, and several combinations thereof, including Windows’ Troubleshoot – Playing Audio and Troubleshoot – Hardware and Devices, checking under Services if Windows Audio is running, removing and reinstalling
    different versions of Realtek High Definition Audio drivers, Intel graphics and chipset drivers, modifying the registry (deleting UpperFilter values), all to no avail, the issue looked hopelessly deadlocked. An external USB DAC (Denon DA-10) was working fine
    all the time.

    However, one BIOS (ver. 207) setting on this Asus N55SF machine presents an apparently working work-around, if not a real solution: under the “Advanced” tab, when “Play POST Sound” is set to “Yes”, it enables the High Definition Audio Controller to start
    when loading Windows, and the Realtek High Definiton Audio devices (both speakers and microphone) to work again. One then has to live with a sound being played at Windows startup and shut-down, but the “Speaker Volume” for this sound can be set to low (“1”)
    in the BIOS settings.

    The Realtek High Definiton Audio driver 6.0.1.7571 was automatically installed by Windows, but it did not work well; the best results so far on this machine with Windows 10 version 1709 have been with the Realtek High Definiton Audio driver 6.0.1.6413 (for
    Windows 7) from Asus Support. It does, however, fail to install Asus Sonic Master. That does not matter much to me. The most recent driver versions 6.0.1.8219 and 6.0.1.8228 found at the excellent Asus driver resources site
    Blog - Ivan Ridao Freitas install OK, but run less stably in this case than version 6.0.1.6413.

    Windows High Definition Audio Controller Code 10

    Hi all, my High Definition Audio Controller shows up in Device Manager with a yellow exclamation mark and has code 10 in its Properties. I can't play any sound at all. I've tried:

    -Uninstalling the High Definition Audio Controller and restarting my computer to no avail

    -Using Windows Troubleshooter which couldn't identify the problem. It just said "High Definition Audio Controller has a driver problem".

    I'm using Windows on a partition in my 2012 Macbook Pro running Mojave. The Windows partition was installed using a bootable USB.
