I reinstalled Windows XP and I am missing the driver for "Modem on High Definition Audio Bus". What is that?

Asked by buckyboy28 (4938points) February 18th, 2010

I have no clue what it is or where to find the driver for it. I have a Dell Latitude D530. Do I need the “Modem on High Definition Audio Bus”? Should I just uninstall it from the device manager?

You could disable it in device manager. If you uninstall it might pester you again later.

Though having a modem can be handy. I am surprised about twice a year when the need arises, either for faxing or when broadband is unavailable.

It might be the driver labeled “Conexant D330,HDA,MDC,v.92,modem” on this page:

I am guessing HDA = High Definition Audio

Also I would recommend installing the Intel chipset driver. On recent fresh installs, I found the chipset driver was not installed from the disk or Windows update, and getting it cured some performance woes.

@jaytkay Thanks for the help. That was the right driver. I also threw the Intel Chipset on there too.
