    Hello all, I've been up for the most part of the night trying to solve my problem with a few of my drivers not working.
    Most of the time I can figure this stuff out on my own, but this one has me stumped. I will provide pictures of the drivers that are not working, and have the "Code52" error.

    The things that I have tried to do:

    1. Ran sigverif.exe - the files was not signed
    2. Tried to rename the files and re-install.
    3. Booted into Advanced Boot Options and disabled driver signing.
    4. Started in safe mode and installed the drivers, but after reboot I had the "Code52" again.
    5. Ran a full system scan with Trend Micro.

    I could be leaving out something, but I been all night trying to get this problem fixed. Any help would be nice, but I really don't want to format unless that is the only way I can get this fixed.

    Well it looks like I have found a fix for the error "Code52". It looks like if you go into the boot menu, and turn off the driver signature enforcement it will work. I thought I was doing this correctly before, but I wasn't. I could not get my Advanced Boot Menu to pull up while starting my PC. I went around that and pulled up msconfig. The only thing wrong with using msconfig to open the menu is, it will start the computer in safemode. In this case, it didn't work. Safemode allowed me to install/sign the drivers but would not stay installed/signed once I rebooted. I tried once more to spam the f8 button until it put me into the menu, which after a few tries it did. Once I got into the menu I then chose the driver signature enforcement option. I launched windows and bingo, I have sound again. Although this may be a temporary fix, i'm not sure yet. I may have to disable driver signature every time I launch, but if it saves me from a format I can live with that. Hope this helps someone down the road.
