Well if someone could point me in the right direction it would be a great help I have a dv4 1435 with the sound problem. I have download everything I could find with no luck. I do have a the UAA installed. I just install devcon but have only yellow in the device manager for sound. I think part of the reason if the many failed driver trys I have made. If useing the devcon is my only option what drivers do I load to make it work?

in my case it worked with the devcon ... no audio driver! but the UAA driver it loads the audio driver installed and works only when the system Reicin the audio was muted ... if you go into "msconfig" You will see the service "audio service" stopped. then did the following:
inside. devcon the bat arises net start "service name" worked.
devcon.exe restart "id of UAAA"
net start "name service audio"

3. Choose option: Download drivers and software (and firmware)
4. In ' For product ' search box type your p/n.
5. Click on ' Go ' and choose your current system.
You will find there Bios update.
It's very important to check compatibility section for this update to be sure then it is supported by system which you are using now. If it's not listed then I do not recommend to use it.
How to update Bios?
First check which Bios version you've got now. This information may be very helpful if ther will be any problem.
Connect the notebook to the AC power supply.
Disconnect from the internet. Exit from all programs that you are running. Switch off any anti-virus and firewall.
Execute the Bios update exe file. It may take some time. Allow the notebook to restart after applying the updated BIOS.
While this update is running do not:
- switch off your laptop,
- disconnect AC power supply,
- try to run any software or do anything on it .
Bios update is always very risky and may corrupt your notebook. So be careful and have full patience. You will perform this update at your own risk.
