Sorry that didn't work. According to the product number of your notebook that is the only driver available.
Please go to the device manager and click on the audio device needing drivers, and then click on the details tab.
Post the hardware ID you see there.
I want to confirm that the audio chip in your model is the Conexant AC-Link Audio chip.

Those ID's confirm that your notebook has the Conexant AC-Link audio chip.
OK...here is what I did. A little detective work...
I like to use the free 7-zip file utility to extract the component files from the exe.
When I extracted the files from the driver that is posted by HP for your model that I linked you to above, here is the hardware ID for the Conexant Audio chip the driver supports.
As you can see, this driver supports a different Conexant audio chip than the one in your notebook, because the hardware ID you posted is PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_4370
So, I googled the hardware ID and found several drivers that had the main ID of PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_4370, but they had a different &SUBSYS number.
I had to download and extract the files from a few of them before I finally found one that matched the exact hardware ID as yours which is PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_4370&SUBSYS_3091103C
Please see if this one works...

Thank you for your inquiry.
I was unable to locate any updated HP drivers for this computer and Windows 7.
You can try updating the drivers in Device Manage by right clicking on the device and choose update drivers.
I am sending you a link to "Audio output stops intermittently on a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2" click here.
You could also try the MS FIXIT click here to automatically update the drivers.
If you require further assistance please go to the device manager and click on the audio device needing drivers, and then click on the details tab. Post the hardware you see there and I will research further.
