Speakers not detected in Spectre XT Laptop

HP Recommended
HP Spectre XT Laptop
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have volunteered to help refurbish a Spectre XT laptop for donation to a school support program.  i replaced the hard drive and installed Windows 10 home edition.  Here is what the device manager reports


Also no speaker or sound device



I have tried all the suggestions I found listed on any forum including reinstalling IDT Drivers for Windows 10 and 8.1 and a bunch of other drivers none of which have solved the problem.  This laptop has Beats Audio speakers but are not detected. Spectra XT drivers for windows 10 do not show sound drivers.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.
