HP a1010y Sound Card problem "Can't find Match HDAudio Inf File" when installing sound card driver.

I am having troubles installing Realtek Audio sound card drivers for
my desktop HP a1010y

I got the drivers from the HP site:
http://www.yqcomputer.com/

Every time I try to install the driver it comes up with the error "
Cann't find Match Realtek HDAudio Inf File ! " followed by "
Realtek HD Audio driver Setup Failure "

The setup does allow the wizard to finish installing the drivers after
the error and prompts to restart when finished. A similar error pops
up while uninstalling.

the driver listed in the installed programs list but no sound card is
recognized.

I read in another thread that the Microsoft Universal Audio
Architecture (UAA) Bus drivers needed to be installed first to help
recognize the card (or something). I found the UAA drivers here
thanks to another google groups thread (link below). But I installed
it and got the exact same error.

Everything with smoothly on my xp install except this sound driver
that is driving me crazy. Thanks in advance.
