Sound/audio driver for Hp probook 450g1

HP Recommended
HP ProBook 450 G1
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am trying to find a sound driver for my notebook. But I couldn't find one. There are no sound drivers listed in the drivers' lists for HP ProBook 450g1. Where can I find one?

You're very welcome.

 

Sorry that driver didn't work.

 

Since you are stuck with the generic HD audio driver that W10 installs, there are no audio enhancements.

 

What you have now, is all you will have.

 

I guess you can see if there any USB powered audio devices that would work on W10 and provide a better audio experience.

 

Unfortunately, I don't know anything about those devices since I have never used one.

Hi:

 

Yes, that is a problem.  No W10 IDT audio driver.

 

The W8.1 driver used to work, but I don't think it does anymore.

 

You can give it a try if you want.

 

Otherwise, this is the only other driver that has any chance of working for you.  Install and restart the PC.

 

6.10.6492.0

On some model notebooks this driver sets the headphones as the default after it installs, so make sure the PC speakers are set as the default device if the driver installs.

thank you very much for the reply. I tried it. It didn't work. I just need to know one thing. How can I use equalization in w10?
I use headphone A4tech bloddyG530. It has a software named "tonemaker" which can tweak the sound. I can not use it. I have tried everything. I didn't have any audio installed previously. I think it's not working because I have no audio driver installed. Can you look into it? Mainly How can I use equalization in windows 10?

P.S: Can I use an external sound card in my current laptop? In the case that I don't get audio driver for windows 10
