HP D530 PB600a and sound


i have a lot of difficulty to get a correct driver for the integrated sound card of this motherboard. I tried all the drivers from the HP site, but none r working!
It seems it is the AC97 Integrated ADI 1981B Audio, but even this is not working.
I have BIOs 2.44 on this machine, and i can not find where to disable the integrated audio so i can install a PCI card.

Any help will be welcomed!

Hey, I've got an HP Compaq D530 SFF desktop machine whose sound card uses the SoundMAX drivers. The problem is that when I connect earphones/headphones on the front panel, and try to listen to music or...

moz-screenshot.pngmoz-screenshot-1.pngYour front panel audio / microphone connector has an AC97 connector inside which looks like this:

It is probably plugged into the motherboard somewhere. Try plugging it into the soundcard directly if it is in the motherboard. Or vice versa if it is plugged into the soundcard.

Should I remove driver for integrated intel extreme graphics 2 before installing geforce mx agp video card with win xp. What is the proper procedure ?

Hi bhuisingh, I pulled these instruction from the NVIDA forum for removing the drivers.
  • It seems a lot of people on the forums are getting error messages which can simply be solved by making sure old drivers are removed correctly. This isn't always the solution, but its certainly the first step to take in finding the solution. Also, I thought it would be useful to have a general guide on how to do it properly.
  • In order for new video card drivers to work correctly, you must first make sure that all old drivers for the video card are removed, as the old ones can conflict with the new ones, giving various errors when trying to run games ect.
  • Firstly, remove old drivers by navigating to device manager, and select display adapters, double click on your graphics card, select the driver tab, and select uninstall for your video card driver.
  • Download and install driver cleaner pro here
  • Once installed, reboot your computer and start in safe mode, run driver cleaner and select "Nvidia" from the drop down list to be cleaned. This will remove all remaining parts of the old driver. It should be run in safe mode as this has the best results.
  • Once cleaned, restart the computer. Install the new driver.
If this helps, would you please rate the solution. If this does not help, please leave a comment giving me more information on the problem and I will try to help you further.

No sound found

You have to install the correct sound drivers.
It doesn't matter if the sound is integrated on the motherboard, or you have a separated sound card.
One the drivers are installed, you'll be able to enjoy the sound from your system

HP D530 Video card upgrade

If the HP D530 has an AGP slot, which I think it does, then yes you can install the Radeon HD 4350 card.
Make sure you have the correct driver for the video card.

Hope this helps.
Good Luck.

New sound card for HP d530 small form factor..

You just have to look for a "low-profile" PCI card. Creative makes one, Audigy SE SB0570LPVP

Search that for a vendor, or low-profile for other manufacturers.
