ALC888 soundcard invisible?

    I can't install the beta Vista drivers from the Realtek website for my ALC888
    onboard audio because of the apparently classic missing Microsoft HD "bus
    driver" error (AKA the Microsoft UAA - Universal Audio Architecture driver).
    I've scoured the net searching for help and can only find solutions for XP or
    2003 server. One would think that the Vista driver would SOMEHOW install in
    VISTA. Contributing to my setback is the fact that the soundcard doesn't
    even appear in device manager. There are no unknown devices and no question
    marks in ANY of the branches. The soundcard works fine in my XP boot so it's
    not a hardware problem. Any help in fixing this problem would be greatly
    appreciated. Thanks.

    Yeah, that's the one I got. It tells me that I need to install the Microsoft
    HD Bus Driver before I can install the drivers.

    Have you tried windows update to see if drivers are available. MS posted
    one's for my ALC650.
