    Help with missing drivers: Intel H67 SandyBridge chipset (DH67CL motherboard) with Windows XP:

    I have used an an Intel DH67CL Sandy Bridge "6 Series" H67 Chipset motherboard, (to serve as an upgrage for an old Intel D845WN PC) running Win XP SP2, replacing the motherboard by an Intel DH67CL Sandy Bridge "6 Series" H67 Chipset motherboard, and did an XP "repair installation" by the book.

    All in all the installation went pretty well (I had to change BIOS configuration from AHCI to IDE, though). The repair installation goes through a new "Hardware Enumeration" and updates the HAL. Then I loaded some of the new drivers from the mobo driver CD.

    The problem is now, when the PC boots it says: "New Hardware Found", but it can't find the driver (nor can it be found in "updates"), and when I open Device Manager and look for missing drivers (so-called: "other devices"), there are three yellow question marks (which stand for missing or bad drivers):

    1. "Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus": "VEN 8086 DEV 2805". (Vendor 8086 is Intel. 2805 must be about the chipset). I can't find "DEV 2805" on the Net. (Sound/audio are working fine, BTW).

    2. "Unknown Device": "VEN 8086 DEV 0102". Vendor 8086 is Intel again.
    I found this: "Intel SandyBridge HD graphics" at this site: http://www.driverskit.com/hwcat/pci_ven_8086_dev_0102/devinfo7223.htm, but I don't want to install the "www.driverkit.com" driver locator software - I suspect spyware/malware.

    3. "Unknown Device": "VEN 1095 DEV 0680". This is a Dynamode Silicon Image IDE/ATA PCI storage controller card, for which I have installed the driver and it's working fine (including IDE disk access). I don't understand why it's showing as a missing driver.

    Can you help with finding/installing the drivers? Your help will be appreciated. (By the way, I have updated the mopbo BIOs - it's up to date).

    Thank In Advance - Gail H

    HI Gail

    If you have used an already installed HDD with Windows XP on it that was used on the older motherboard and even doing a repair install, it does always work. You really need to do a new clean install of Windows XP to remove any hardware driver issues as the older hardware drivers may not be fully removed.

    But you could try the below

    Install the Chipset driver from HERE and reboot, must reboot to properly install it, then install the Microsoft UAA driver from HERE (you need the UAA driver to allow audio to work in XP SP2, if you had SP3 then you would have the UAA driver already, but dont install SP3 just yet, install the UAA driver) and again reboot, then install the Audio driver from HERE and reboot and test your sound.

    *oh as a side point, I would never advise using a site that your not confortable with and for drivers in the main, dont use a driver finder application or any driver webostes, unless its the original makers or a well known safe downloads site.

    Solved. Here's the report for whomever encounters similar problems

    1. First, I backed up the C: drive, made an image using CloneZilla. (Good tool, terrible user interface, + doesn't have yet NIC drivers for Intel Sandy Bridge).

    2. Installed the WinXP SP3 upgrade.

    3. In "Device Manager", I right-clicked the yellow sign for the missing driver for the Dynamode Silicon Image IDE storage controller, using their supplied CD. This time the system accepted the file and loaded the driver.

    4. I then found at the Intel web site (couldn't find before) and downloaded an installation file for both the HD video and audio bus of the "6-Series" H67 chipset, and installed it - it went fine. Vendor 8086 (Intel), products 2805 and 0102. Interestingly, Google didn't find it, I found it on Bing.

    It's a go.
