    Hi guys, im in a serious trouble here and i need help from you guys. My computer is working fine , but just recently , i've download the latest realtek driver,R228, from the realtek official website. During the installation , the program requires me to uninstall the current audio driver , which they did it automatically for me when i click the ok button. After they had uninstall my current driver , i reboot , following all the instructions given , and now im not able to install the realtek audio driver. I recieve "Install realtek hd audio driver failure error code : 0x00000057".

    I did search for solutions for days, but all the solutions doesn't apply to me. I've tried the famous solution , which is to disable and uninstall the UAA driver, but the problem is, i don't even have the UAA driver in my device manager. Im using Window Vista business 32 bit. My motherboard is biostar g31-m7 te.

    I've uninstall all the realtek drivers , and do a driver cleaning with a driver sweeper program. I've even disable the on-board audio in the bios setting.

    Any idea how can i solve this problem? Really need help. Thanks alot in advance.

    Have you tried System restore to a date and time before you installed the latest driver

    Nope , i just got the latest driver from the realtek official website. And during the installation it requires me to uninstall the current driver. It automatically uninstall the driver for me.

    As for system restore , my computer doesn't have any restore point , so a system restore is impossible for me. I also cannot rollback the audio driver , since the driver is uninstalled by the program , and not updating the driver in the device manager itself.

    Ya , i turn off the creating of restore point , since im a person who handles and takes good care of my CPU , i don't really need any reformating or system restore. But recently , i just encountered this audio driver problem. I guess **** happens lol.
