I'm having sound issues. Just downgraded my dv6-1050us to WinXP 64. Everything is up and running except my sound system -- I'm getting a yellow! over the IDT High Def. CODEC device that Windows Update installed, and I have an Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus in my unknown devices.
On the first install of XP64, I installed the NVidia driver pack for my graphics card, and it automatically installed the NVidia audio devices, too. Those drivers seemed to work fine and there were no errors reported in my device manager for the NVidia device, but there was still a yellow! over my IDT device. I have tried various drivers from Intel, Realtek, IDT, and NVidia, to no avail -- I still have a "No Sound Device" problem in my sounds controller prompt.
I think the problem is stemming from the fact that my computer has an Intel sound device, but the NVidia device is configured for the same location and is blocking it.
I tried downloading the chipset for my laptop off the HP website, but after downloading the pack made for XP, I get the error "Your system does not meet the minimum requirements to install"and it fails. I checked the chipset and it is made ONLY for Vista, even though I clicked on the XP operating system. The pack that I have downloaded is sp42338, which reports compatability with XP64 on the website.
I have now done a fresh install of XP64 and only run Windows Update -- I have not installed the NVidia drivers yet so hopefully they won't cause any problems as I try to troubleshoot this.
If anyone can help me find the XP drivers for my chipset, or help in any other way, I would be much obliged.
