SOLVED! BEATS AUDIO NOT WORKING OR MISSING AFTER ANY WINDOWS UPDATE

ENVY dv7
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

If your Beats Audio disappeared after any type Windows update. Here is the solution. I’ve posted this on a previous thread that is now outdated so since Microsoft recently released a major update, here is the solution to the missing Beats Audio disappeared – again.

SOLUTIONQuick answer and solution: Download the IDT driver (it includes the Beats Panel after you do reboot).
(a) Download from my GoogleDrive here:
IDT High-Definition (HD) Audio Driver With Beats - sp59654.exe
(b) Install it
(c) REBOOT

EXPLANATION: The link above contains the IDT driver that includes the Beats Audio Panel and Sound. I used if for my H0P ENVY dv7-7243cl but I’m pretty sure that it is NOT model specific and will install on any HP laptop that has the red Beats Logo on it. So if your system did not have Beats originally installed, you may get a message to that effect and won’t be able to install the driver.

Much time and effort was spent on trying to get the Beats Control Panel back. I also tried getting drivers from the HP site but they are no longer available for the HP ENVY dv7-7243cl.

When the laptop was purchased years ago, I downloaded all the available drivers (including a Service Manual from another site). There are 35 individual drivers that I had downloaded before the links were removed from the HP site. These include the original Cyberlink products, DriveGuard, CoolSense, SimplePass, RapidStart, ProtectSmart, and a bunch of other original drivers. If you need any of these, here ya go:
