Been having audio problems for a week & download driver

I am trying to download the SP40170 which is apparently the newest driver for this HP notebook. It won't install. I'm getting an X on my speaker--the conextant High Def stereo, beats me. I have lost the icon of the speaker in the box, the driver, as well, and I'm going crazy. I have the dv6704 0r 6700 not sure. The tech guy from HP said he sent me the newest driver to download, which was the one above. I was working last night, but today all sound stopped

Hi there,

Ok, I've had a look, and there are 7 dv6704 products. You may have a Realtek Audio device. You can take a look here:

Can't find any reference to SP40170 though, but give these a shot and let me know how you get on

How can Install a sound device


You need to download and install the audio driver for your laptop, by following these directions:
You can download your audio drivers from HP's Software and Driver Downloads page here:
http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/support_task.html?pageDisplay=drivers
Type in the product number of your computer in the product field and press enter. On the next page, click on the link corresponding to your exact product. In the first field, select the Operating System (be sure to select the 32- or 64-bit version correctly) you will be using with these drivers. Next find the newest driver in the list of drivers available for this product and click on the linked text of the driver. This will take you to a new page that gives the exact directions to complete the installation of the driver you need.
You may need to restart your computer after this installation, and your sound will probably not work until you have restarted.
Your sound device will now work!

When i am installingconxtant audio driver it is telling media device not found and not installing


Typically, if you are getting a "device not found" error upon trying to install an audio device driver, there are a number of issues that could be going on at one time.

First: You may have the wrong device driver or version of the device driver for the device intended for. Check the hardware version number and verify on the website of the hardware device (the audio card if it is an independent audio card that is what you are referring to) what is the latest revision of the driver. Download the driver and install it.

Second: If your device is an external audio card, make sure it's fully inserted into the PCMIA slot (seriel port if being used). If so, then accomplish the following procedure: Power down your PC. Remove the Audio Card and reboot PC. Allow PC to recognize no audio card, then shut down PC and reinstall Audio Card. Reboot PC and install with new Audio Driver

One of the two steps above should rectify the problem. If it doesn't, then the last resort is to assume the Audio card is faulty if it's an external Audio card.

If you have an internal Audio card, then there can be a faulty portion on the sound portion of the motherbood, which then would require the entire motherboard to be replaced. But before you result to this, be sure you have the newest Audio driver for the Audio Codec and installed correctly.

Please keep in mind, Conexant is an OEM supported Audio Codec and you need to refer to the maker of the PC itself for driver support. I.E. it may be a Conexant Audio chipset installed in a HP PC. So, be sure you go the manufacturer website such as "HP" for the audio driver support.

Hope this helps,

Sound problem


Check Windows Audio services is running.

Click "Start"button, Select "Run", type "services.msc", press enter.
Scroll down till you find Windows Audio, make sure the services is started and configuring it to start up automatically by right clicking on "Windows Audio" and selecting "properties".

If you have somehow or by mistakenly uninstalled the audio driver,your sound won't work.

Right click on "My Computer" icon, Select "Manage", Click on "Device manager ", expand "Sound,Video and Game controller" and make sure your Audio driver is listed there.

In case you are missing the driver, I'm giving you the download page link from where you can download the Audio driver.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=3177516&

Select the Operating System and install the driver if the driver files are missing or corrupted.

Hope this will solve your problem.

Did u download the Sound Drivers for Windows 7, if so then whether you have the correct drivers or not. If you still face the same problem then Download & Install Driver Max software which is available at www.drivermax.com.
