I am using SP3, Everything was working except the audio, i tried restarting the MS-UAA device and sound starts working but when i logoff the laptop and login again the sound was not working.
i tried restarting the stacsv file also but no use.
again Sound was working when the whole system is restarted and then restarting the MS-UAA. Is there any solution for this issue? any one facing this problem?

Please follow the steps given below. I copied them from post no. 5 from the link suggested in the post above. But it needs slight modification. Please follow these steps and you 'll get the sound back :
If you found the sound was not working after restart, do the following steps
1. Download devcon command line utility, here
2. Extract and copy the file to c:\windows\devcon\i386\devcon.exe
3. Make command line to restart MS-UAA automatically .
The command line as: C:\windows\devcon\i386\devcon.exe restart "PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_293E&SUBSYS_3607103C&REV_03"
1. The location of devcon.exe is in c:\windows\devcon\i386\devcon.exe if you change it, you need to edit idt.bat
2. "PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_293E&SUBSYS_3607103C&REV_03" is hardware ID for MS-UAA, if you found it in a different name change it.
3. Place idt.bat in c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
4. The sound will be restore within 6-10 seconds, because of that there is NO sound of XP start-up
This solution was written by Rakhmad.
Correction to step 3 (NOT the Notes no. 3 but STEP 3 ) given above:
The should be a "@" , without quotes, in front of the PCI\VENxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx command.
Practically for me, the restarting of the device didn't work. So I made it to uninstall and reinstall the driver evertime it reboots...
If you log off and log on then no sound again. So either you have to manually run the batch file or re-boot again. Therefore I slightly modified the above steps and made a new batch file to run everytime you boot, as given below.
Make a .bat with the following commands.Then name it idt.bat and follow the remaining steps from there. The idt.bat file should contain the following lines:
Find the actual device ID from YOUR computer by right-clicking on the UAA listing on the Device Manager and copy and paste it in place of the PCI\VEN_8086xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx listed below.
C:\windows\devcon\i386\devcon.exe remove "@PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_293E&SUBSYS_3607103C&REV_03"
This will fix the problem nicely.It worked for me. Let me know if it doesn't work... Cheers
This solution will ONLY work if the sound works after installing the drivers but does NOT work everytime you reboot.But works after rebooting if you uninstall and reinstall the UAA driver.
This whole thing fits on a SINGLE line in the batch file created:
C:\windows\devcon\i386\devcon.exe remove "@PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_293E&SUBSYS_3607103C&REV_03"
The CODE box above mistakenly shows the whole thing as THREE lines instead of on TWO lines.
Alternatively get MY FILE from here. Then just edit the @PCI\VENxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx value from YOUR computer and follow the rest of the steps above.

Hi, this is to correct the devcon.exe command line, i had researched everything on the net and googled it, it's true that i had trouble with the hp pavilion dv4-1106em windows xp sp3 professional and i should say "join the club" headaches and wants to contribute to this, i found out that the devcon.exe will work properly if you put it only at your system folder "c:\windows\system32", of course without the quotation marks, and also, for the right command, that i've just tested and blown my guts out for not sleeping 18 hours of probing the net and this forum especially, it should go like this:
c:\windows\system32\devcon.exe remove @"PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_293E&SUBSYS_30F7103C&REV_03"
this should be written on that idt.bat that our master pjr had made and i also put "@echo off" to not to let that ugly but useful cmd.exe to show what it is doing, i troubleshoot that first command line on the command prompt but just goes with the unknown commands or batch file errors or it just recognizes the first lines then after the &DEV keyword it goes haywire and doesn't worked at all.
also, just to remind you, you should put idt.bat which was originally named as idt.bat.txt if you downloaded it on this forum in:
c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
i hope it solved everything.
btw, should you can't identify your ms-uaa, it's here at your device manager under system devices and named as
Microsoft UAA Bus Driver for High Definition Audio
double clicking on it will bring about the property window of it then go to the details tab and there should be a drop down menu and look for the Hardware Ids. It should display everything about the MS-UAA device drivers and what it is named as. This is all for advanced user tweaking only but if you just follow the right steps given here it should be fine.
thanks pjr! cheers
will be clicking on the kudo stars for you too.

You don't need anymore idt.bat file in Your system. Just second ago I updated audio and other drivers for Your model. If You don't remeber link here it is.
Before You will use new audio driver uninstall old one first.
Tnx for Kudos.
You don't need anymore idt.bat too.

First of all forgive my English language, I was using Devcon solution it was working good in my DV4 but little bit irritating, it takes long time to start the sound & never hear the windows start up sound, after I checked most of DV series I discovered that most of the hardware are almost same, I was trying to know the real cause of the problem & I discovered that Microsoft did not want to support the drivers for XP a7 they want only to support Vista & seven witch I used both of the OS and I was not satisfied, lots of security & incompatibility problems & I discovered that the real reason for the Audio problem is the Bios itself, any way I am running windows XP SP3 in my DV4 1225EE my sound card is working even before the windows login, I can hear my sound when I swipe my finger in the fingerprint for login to windows, just upgrade your Bios & install XP SP3, install all drivers in the forum & believe it or not your sound will work as the OS is designed for your laptop
Please download the Bios driver from this link; please give feed back to the other users if it’s helpful for you to help them as well

While Magdy may have found the perfect BIOS for his/her model_I would advise caution. Flashing the BIOS always holds a small risk,even when using the proper update posted on your models pages. Using a generic file can be even riskier due to different configurations on various models_especially Intel vs AMD.
The Devcon utility may be a bit clumsy approach, but is safe on all machines,afaik. If you are going to update your BIOS, please, first check your model's driver page at HP and try one from there.
Magby, for clarification could confirm if the BIOS you posted is from your models pages at HP, or a modded BIOS?
