I've been trying to get sound on my laptop (Asus W3J w/ 10.4.9, AD1986A) for days now to no avail. Azalia gives me control to volume sliders but I get no sound, AC97 just wont work and AppleHDA patch, gives me "Line Out" and "Digital Out" however I still dont have sound. Has anybody gotten this combo (W3J + 11d41986/27D88086) to work? Please tell me your method. This is getting frustrating for real.


Microsoft UAA Bus Driver for High Definition Audio

SoundMAX Integrated Digital HD Audio

As per XP device manager. Can anyone help?

@ bijoux: Hey, I got the same laptop and same vendor and dev ids. Unfortunately, I also got the same problems, and tried a lot of the methods out there. Tell me if you got a fix, I'll do the same if I manage to get it working.

W3J, Soundmax AD1986A - 11d41986, Microsoft UAA Bus Driver - 27D88086

Tried AppleHDA patch method - drag and drop AD1986A txt file into the patcher and it does its stuff automatically
- Line Out and Digital Out detected
- Can't move volume slider
- No built-in audio detected in system profiler
- Tried both audio sockets in my laptop with headphones, and laptop speakers
-> No Audio

Tried AppleAzaliaAudio method - removed AppleAC97Audio.kext, AppleHDA.kext and ALCinject.kext, inserted my ven+dev IDs for both HDA controller and sound card into AppleAzaliaAudio, moved it to Extensions, repaired permissions + ownership, cleared cache, rebooted
- HD Audio Output detected
- CAN move volume slider
- No built-in audio detected in system profiler
- Tried both audio sockets in my laptop with headphones, and laptop speakers
-> No Audio

Tried AppleAC97Audio method - removed HDA, Azalia, etc., inserted ADS78 into AppleAC97CodecAD198x.kext Info.plist, and 0x27d88086 into IOPCIPrimaryMatch key for the AppleAC97AudioIntelICH.kext Info.plist, repaired permissions + ownership, cleared cache, rebooted
- Nothing detected
- Can't move volume slider
- No built-in audio detected in system profiler
- Tried both audio sockets in my laptop with headphones, and laptop speakers
-> No Audio

Tried Azalia and AppleAC97Audio method combined, exactly the same result as trying Azalia by itself.
There are loads of different versions of the AppleAC97Audio.kext and AppleAzaliaAudio.kext files, I've tried several but they don't seem to make a difference. I can't tell if the internal mute is on or not, but pressing Fn+F10, which activates/de-activates it, makes no difference. Same with Fn+F12 which increases the volume. To repair permissions/ownership, and clear cache, I do the following:

sudo -s
<enter in my password>
cd /System/Library/Extensions/
chown -R root:wheel <drivername>.kext
chmod -R 755 <drivername>.kext
diskutil repairpermissions /
cd /System/Library/
rm -rf Extensions.mkext Extensions.kextcache

I also check using kextstat | grep AC97 or Azalia to see if the kext is loaded.

Please help, I'm close to buying a USB sound card, which I don't want to do, since the laptop only has 3 USB ports, all of which I use (USB splitters don't work, always get the too much USB power consumption error message). Thanks!!

When i try to load the modifield kext, Terminal says to me

kextload: extension /System/Library/Extensions/AppleAzaliaAudio.kext/Contents/PlugIns/IOHDAudioFamily.kext is not authentic (check ownership and permissions)
kextload: extension /System/Library/Extensions/AppleAzaliaAudio.kext is not authentic (check ownership and permissions)

start with that command in terminal:
sudo -s

then type your password and hit enter!
then go on with loading the kext file

if that doesn't work check and repair your permissions in disk utility!

hope that helps, not shure cause i'm a neewbie....but got leo fully running on my amd machine today :)
