HP DV6 6053, beats audio missing after installing windows 8 (windows developer preview)

hi,

 

I am after installing the latest version of windows.  Windows developer preview.  Now I cant locate beats audio or some of the hp software that came with the machine (i.e software that would keep the machine up to date with updates).  How can I reinstall these ?  Is there a url to download it ? I didnt get any dvd's or cds with my machine.

Hi,

 

Using the link below, choose your  particular Model No. and choose Software and Driver Download in the following page. Note:  Beats Audio is installed when loading your Audio Driver.

Re: HP DV6 6053, beats audio missing after installing windows 8 (windows developer preview)

thanks very much for the url. I get installation errors when I try to run the audio drivers.  "the hardware detected is not supported by this IDT software package"

 

 

The system I got with the machine was windows 7 64bit.  I am running the windows developer preview.

 

Do you know why there would be any errors with the installations ?

Hi,

 

I guess these are the sort of issues you are going to experience with a developer preview - it may be worth trying the dirver on the link below, but there's no guarantee this will be any more successful.

Re: HP DV6 6053, beats audio missing after installing windows 8 (windows developer preview)

it didnt work..

 

its says the hardware detected is not supported by this IDT software package.  This installion will be aborted.

 

Thanks for the post anyway...

 

i guess this is just typical of using a developer preview but i do miss the beats audio.. 

 

When I put my earphones in the laptop there is nothing coming out.  Its another bug I would love to fix... the speakers on the machine work fine though.  Any ideas ?

You could try running it in compatibility mode. (Right click on the setup package->properties->compatibility->run program as..Win 7)

running it in compatibility mode is not something I have tried, where do you get the setup package to right click ? I miss my beatus audio already

Well you can't expect the drivers  to work fine after switching to Win8 Dev Preview. So, go to the hp support page, download the driver for your laptop (make sure you're downloading the correct bit version, 32 or 64) then right click it->properties->compatibility->windows 7.

Re: HP DV6 6053, beats audio missing after installing windows 8 (windows developer preview)

Hi there, I´d got a similar problem but this is with windows 8 pro (the final version)

I installed windows 8 as a new installation, so when I tried to install the audio driver again from HP webpage, It success but beats audio didn't work, only the "HP normal audio" but without the "Beats audio effect" So I had to install again windows 7 and then install windows 8 again over it as a "update installation" and now all is perfect. Everything works perfect with beats audio just like it was in windows 7.

 

I know is a long process, install windows 7 and windows 8 over it again, but worth it to have everything working perfectly.

 

Give it a try, if you did your recovery DVD's or something, you should try it

 

Sorry for my english, actually I'm from Mexico and I had the same problem and HP mexico didn't help me neither that's why I'm sharing my experience, may be it can help
