Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus driver error commonly occurs on Windows 10, 7 & 8. As you can see, in Device Manager, a yellow exclamation mark is next to the device. It means that Windows has identified a problem with the device. To fix the problem, just use the solutions here.

There are three solutions to fix the problem. Try them one by one until you find the one that works for you.

  1. Uninstall then reinstall the driver

You may have tried to uninstall then reinstall the driver. But it doesn’t work. In this case, you can update the driver manually or automatically.

Method 3: Update the driver automatically

The steps above may help resolve the problem. But if they don’t, you can use Driver Easy to help update the driver automatically.

Driver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct drivers for it. You don’t need to know exactly what system your computer is running, you don’t need to risk downloading and installing the wrong driver, and you don’t need to worry about making a mistake when installing.

3) Click the Update button next to a flagged display audio driver to automatically download and install the correct version of this driver (you can do this with the FREE version). Or click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of all the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system (this requires the Pro version – you’ll be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All).
