I have an HP Pavilion DV6 1030US notebook with Vista/64 bit.  Every once in a while the orange mute light will come on all by itself. I then download the IDT High-Definition Audio CODEC Driver, which temporarily fixes it (for a couple weeks or so), but then out of nowhere the orange light comes back on.  I can keep re-downloading the aforementioned driver, but it’s kind of annoying having to do this every week or two.  Any advice? Thanks in advance for your help.

OK every one i read some more and i think i found out how to fix the problem with no sound:

1 go to Control Panel

2 go to Device Manager

3 go to Sound, video, and game controllers

4 double click the IDT High Definition Audio CODEC

5 go to Driver on the top of the IDT screen

6 click Roll Back Driver...yes it takes away the most recent update but it worked for me

7 after it is done rolling back go back to the IDT screen and go back to driver and click the Update Driver... button...don't interrupt it let it do a search and update

 

if after those steps your audio still doesn't work properly then i cannot help any further

hope your sound comes back

Okay, I have a Dv6-1350 Wdws 7/64 and was having the orange light problem. That fix worked great for getting rid of the orange light - but it used to change whether sound was muted or not. Now I have a constant white "no sound" indicator.

AFWarior, thanks. This worked, but two weeks after, same problem : no orange light when muted. Any further help?
