"Works on Dell Vostro 1400 upgraded from Win XP to Win 7"

October 28, 2014  |  By 1Volklskier

 |  Version: SigmaTel High Definition Audio CODEC 6.10.0.5609

Pros

I upgraded my system because XP is no longer supported. After installing Win 7, I had NO sound. The system said everything having to do with sound was working. Nope. I installed this driver (R167846) after removing the original Dell driver (R171789) which wouldn't work with Win 7. This one WORKS!!

Cons

No cons that I've found so far.

Summary

This driver is supposed to be for a system with Win Vista. Well, it works with Win 7 also. If you've upgraded from XP to Win 7, and you have no sound, you gotta try this driver. It worked for me and there are no issues!

"Works on a Dell Inspiron 1420 Windows 7"

January 06, 2013  |  By rvalens2

 |  Version: SigmaTel High Definition Audio CODEC 6.10.0.5609

Pros

Works as advertised and sounds pretty good.

Cons

It really doesn't have any. If it works for you it's great; if not, then of course you'll be unhappy. I hope it's the former and not the latter for you.

Summary

After upgrading my Dell Inspiron 1420 from Vista to Windows 7 the audio on my laptop was no longer working. I went to the Dell website and downloaded the latest Sigmatel audio driver. It immediately kicked out an error indicating the driver was the wrong one for my computer.

Frustrated, I decided to search around the internet and thank goodness I found this one here (version R167846.EXE 9/20/2007). I downloaded and installed it and my PCs audio is now working perfectly!

You would think the newer Dell approved version (version R171789.exe from 12/20/2007) would work, but it doesn't. Down grade to this older version and it will more than likely work for you.

By the way, the older R167846.EXE Sigmatel Audio Driver is on the Dell website, I just overlooked it, just click on previous versions link.

Please note: There are four versions available at the Dell website. So, if you're having problems with your Sigmatel audio driver, I would try them all.

"No luck with Sony VGN-AR590E"

October 17, 2010  |  By Bidibob2

 |  Version: SigmaTel High Definition Audio CODEC 6.10.0.5609

Pros

If it worked, I'd be ecstatic because my HDMI digital 5.1 audio hasn't worked for 5 months since the Sony update.

Cons

Attempted installation however an error prevented installation from completing ("ExitError: Error = Device Object not present, restart the system and run setup again.")
I restarted and ran setup again, same problem. Any help would be appreciated!

Summary

Others have had success with this, so there must be something I'm missing. I've also tried updating the driver directly using the INF file but I receive a Windows error message stating "A device attached to the system is not functioning."

"Worked the First time in about a year"

August 18, 2010  |  By cdberkman

 |  Version: SigmaTel High Definition Audio CODEC 6.10.0.5609

Pros

I have a Sony VGN-FZ460E. After Upgrading to Windows 7, HDMI Audio did not work. I had to use external speakers.

Cons

None at all

Summary

Finally after almost a year, WITHOUT Sony support, these drivers worked like a champ. Bottom line. You willl have to downgrade your driver to get this to work. I tried the Vista Drivers for sony but they did not work. These are Older drivers from Dell, and they work for my Sony. Who would think. Thanks CNET
