Hi there. I'm quite a fresh 901 user and have already encountered an issue, that overcomes me. I've installed the one and only game on this notebook, being Grim Fandango and found out that the sound was stuttering.
Therefore i grabbed the driver dvd supplied with the 901, copied the realtek sound drivers and installed them.

Here starts the fun. After rebooting i got a startup message: "Asus ACPI Service Missing Audio Driver Please install Audio Driver"

Sound doesn't work now, and so do the F7,8 and 9 function hotkeys standing for muteing, volume up and down.
Tried installing both the audio and acpi drivers from the driver disk in both combinations (first acpi, or first audio) and it doesn't resolve the issue.
What to do? Having a mute computer sucks kinda big time.

Best regards,
Mr. P.

I had a similar problem with my eee1000h so I googled.  One page suggested going into the  control panel > Sounds and Audio device >  Voice tab > Test hardware option and configure settings there.  I did and all the overwhelming background noise went away.  Still cannot get reasonable volume adjustment from the built-in mike but headset works fine now.

I have the same problem as ruci (but not Lone Wolf)
I reformatted, installed XP Pro with service pack 3.
Installed the latest drivers (12 Feb 2009)
But no audio, and the message:
"Missing Audio Driver, disable audio hot key. Please install Audio Driver"
this pops up each time the system is booted up.
I've re-installed the audio drivers (Audio_XP_080619)
which seems to go smoothly each, and every!!, time, but without effect.

Any help ?

Is this an XP pro issue?
SP3 issue ?
Is there an alternative driver ?

Thanx

(It's not Lone Wolf or Randy's problem as there is NO sound, and the options in control panel > Sounds and Audio device >  Voice tab > Test hardware option etc are all grey....... because there is no driver)

SOLUTION.
I told my brother and he found the answer.

http://www.dashken.net/index.php?/archi … Audio.html

Essentially, the issue is that I had slipstreamed sp3 into the installation
ie sp3 was installed before any drivers.

sp3 has a known(!!) issue with High Definition Audio

You need to download : Universal_Audio_Architecture_High_Definition_Audio_AddOn_1.0

This can be found:
http://www.dashken.net/uploads/technolo … On_1.0.zip

If the link is removed search for:
dashken audio
it's the first hit.

It relates to a known windows problem KB888111 apparently

It is SUPPOSED to be included in sp3, but it doesn't seem to be

Open control panel>system>hardware and point the unknown (audio) PCI to this.
During installation it asks for hdaudbus.sys - just point it back in the folder, its there.

reboot (well i did), THEN install the ASUS audio driver.

Solved the problem.
The link has a good desription and other options
