Conexant Flow?

Envy m7-u109dx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I noticed that "Flow" is running in the task manager all of the time, but I can't find any documentation about how to use it, change settings, etc. Bang & Olufsen is also running, but I can open Bang & Olufsen to change sound settings.

 

Does Bang & Olufsen override Flow, and if so, do I need to have Flow running? Or is there a way to open Flow and look at the settings?

@imaref,

Welcome to HP Forums, this is a great place to get support, find answers and tips.


Thank you for posting your query, I'll be more than glad to help you.

I understand that you see that "Flow" is running in the task manager all of the time.

 

"Flow" could be a third party software, we do not have any information about it. You may uninstall the software.
 

You have a good day ahead.

"Flow" is a part of the Conexant audio driver package which came installed on my Envy, and is also installed when installing the Conexant audio drivers.

 

I think you better check your info again...

I understand that the issue is with the Conexant audio driver package which was pre-installed in the computer.


This issue requires one to interaction over the phone, please contact HP phone support for further assistance at the link: www.hp.com/contacthp

@imaref

Already running the latest version and installing it again does, unfortunately, not solve anything.

Only solution I have found is to disable the Flow and MicTray programs, which are normally started via the task scheduler.

If you want it fixed, you're going to have to UNinstall the latest driver:

 

1. Go to control panel, click on Conexant ISST Audio and choose "uninstall".

 

2. After uninstalling--reboot. When the computer starts back up, the volume icon will have a red X since there is no driver.

 

3. Wait for a few minutes and then Windows 10 will install the driver for you (you may have to wait longer if you have a slow internet connection).

 

4. I double checked in the device manager, and Windows 10 installed a compatible driver. Sound now works.

Problem is that Flow.exe crashes on load and it makes no different at all if i uninstall/reinstall the Conexant ISST Audio drivers.

But as I wrote, preventing Flow and MicTray from executing when Windows boots solves the problem for me. 

 

By doing this I have audio and no warnings about crashing applications every time i powerup the laptop.
