Solved!

Conexant Flow?

HP Recommended
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?

"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...

Why are HP support so unhelpful? The OP states there's no documentation and their response is to call them???

@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.

I had the same issues with corrupt Connexant ISST audio drivers and flow.exe on a 6 month old machine. The Sound would stop intermitently and when it did work had latency issues. Only a disable/enable ISST Audio sound from device manager would temperarly fix the no sound (not the latency delays) so I got HP to send me a recovery USB flash drive and the problem was finally resolved following a factory reset using the HP Product Revocery USB Drive they sent me.

(HP ENVY X360 15-aq104na running Microsoft Windows 10 x64 and Connexant ISST Audio driver version  9.0.40.1 dated 27/5/17) Hope this helps
