I think I have the solution for this issue.....
If the Notebook is being used with Windows XP, we need to install the Microsoft UAA Drivers before installing the Audio Drivers since the Audio Card installed in the Notebook is a High Definition(HD) card which cannot be detected by Windows XP by defaut.
By installing the Microsoft UAA Drivers, XP will be able to detect the HD audio card after which we can install the Audio Drivers normally.
However, for Notebooks that are using Vista, the Audio Drivers can be installed normally.
You can download the Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) drivers from the link below :
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp33501-34000/sp33867.exe

Download and save the file in the Notebook and double click the file to install it once the download is completed. Restart the Notebook once the installation is completed.
Now, once the notebook is restarted, download and install the Conexant High Definition audio drivers for your Notebook from the link below :
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp34001-34500/sp34200.exe

Do restart the Noebook once the installtion is completed for better results.
This should solve the issue.
