Audio Doesnt Work...

[ Edited ]
Hello, I have a HP Pavilion DV4 1114nr and I was having some issues with vista so I installed Windows XP and I cant find all my drivers... I currently have 11 missing drivers. 1 SM Bus controller, 1 video controller, 1 video controller(VGA Compatable), and 8 unknown devices. But the most important thing right now is my audio, the red mute light is always on and I cant play or hear anything. when I try to access my volume I get a message : "There are no active mixer devices available. to install mixer devices, go to Control Pannel, click Printers and Other Hardware, and then click Add Hardware.  This Program will now close." I've tried that and installing other drivers and seeing if the audio is set to auto turn on and it is... I need some help.

XP drivers for Your model:

 

Intel Chipset (Install and reboot before other drivers) here


Intel Matrix Storage Manager here

 

MS-UAA for SP2 (required with a reboot before Audio, Modem and Graphic driver) here

 

MS-UAA for SP3 (required with a reboot before Audio, Modem and Graphic driver) here

 

Intel Graphic 4500MHD here

 

Broadcom Wireless here

 

Please check first this link written by Joshua Wood and concentrate in it on problems that may appear when You will be installing sound card. I know then this is guide for dv5 but many hardware and drivers are the same for both models.

 

IDT High-Definition Audio CODEC Driver,

1. sp41698, vista driver, reported work in XP here

2. sp41693, vista driver, reported work in XP here

3. sp39671, vista driver, reported works in XP here or here

4. If You still have old folder C:\Swsetup from Vista somewhere then audio drivers from there may also work for You.

 

When You will install any audio driver with success check is Your sound working.

 

If there will be no sound after restart check this thread. There are informations how to solve this.

 

High-Definition Audio (HDA) Modem Installer and Driver here

 

.Net Framework (required before HP Quick Lunch Buttons) here

 

HP Quick Lauch Buttons here

 

Alps Touchpad here

 

Realtek RTL8102E Family PCI-E Fast Ethernet here

 

ENE CIR (Infrared Reciever) here

 

Cyberlink YouCam Software here (Your Vista driver)

 

JMB38X Card Reader Host Controller Driver  here

 

If you had for 7 unknown devices (buttons drivers), here (New link)

Do manual installation

 

Go to device manager, right click unknown device,

Choose to update driver, No to connect,

Choose install from a list or specific location, Don't search, Have disk,

Browse to the location of machine.inf.

Do it for the rest of unknown devices.

Re: Audio Doesnt Work...

1. SM Bus controller - chipset driver

2. video controller, video controller(VGA Compatable) - Intel graphic driver

3. my audio, the red mute light - HP Quick lunch buttons and audio drivers 

 

I recommend installing system again and starting from the begining. The best results are always when chipset is installed first before other drivers.

 

Try also this guide:

 

First You need to slipstream Your Sata drivers (only ICH9M-E/M SATA AHCI Controller) with nLite.

Here is guide how to do it and here are Sata drivers  for You. Just unrar this drivers with winrar.

 

Be sure also that You are using WinXP SP2 version. If you haven't got SP2 version here you can download this service pack

and here You have got guide how to slipstream this file with Your system again by nLite.

In this program You can even burn Your new XP cd with this driver.

Thank you soo much! I currently have all my drivers up to date but thats not what was bugging me... my audio and all but one lighted button don't respond... i looked in my device manager and i dont have any problems with any of the branches, and my wireless switch light is fine. I did notice that my mute light comes on when my computer is at the windows loading screen and then goes out just after...

Re: Audio Doesnt Work...

So You've got now any problems or not. I'm not sure that I understand what You wrote.

Is this light button for mute working after loading windows?

Or maybe You have situation like this. Light doesn't work but key do eerything what it should do.

Re: Audio Doesnt Work...

Ok, I'm sorry I didn't make myself clear... My mute button doesn't work at all but the light changes to white at the XP Windows loading screen then back to red. and I hear a quiet pop in the  speakers. After windows loads and shows my desktop the button doesn't change when you tap it. and when I try to access my Volume (Start>Programs>Accessories>Entertainment>Volume Control) I get this error :

 

There are no active mixer devices available. To install mixer devices, go to Control Pannel, click Printers and Other Hardwar, and then click Add Hardware.  This program will now close.

 

 Under Device Manager>Sound, video and game controllers I have :

 

Audio Codecs

Legacy Audio Drivers

Legacy Video Capture Devices

Media control Devices

Media control Devices

Video Codecs

 

All the Branches are updated with no errors. Yet my Audio is Still not working in any sense of the word.I hear no Sound While Booting or Shutting Down... And have recieved no other error messages.

Re: Audio Doesnt Work...

I Couldn't Install the "IDT Driver and Aplications" (sp41693). I got this error : The hardware detected is not supported by this IDT Software Package. The install will be aborted.
