Yesterday I started doing the updates suggested in Health Check. One of them said I had to have UAA Bus Driver installed before I did the update (for the IDT High Def Audio CODEC), so I downloaded & installed that 1st. After that was downloaded & installed I didn't have any sound whatsoever. I'm not a complete novice, so I right clicked on the Sound Icon down on the system tray, chose "Playback Devices" and made the "Speakers & Dual Headphones" the default. Everything seemed to be working fine. A few minutes later, no sound again. So, I did a System Restore Point back to before I did all the updates.
I've got other updates waiting in the Health Check & I'm scared now to let them download & install.
Have you any thoughts on this?
Thanks in advance,

I never trust Health Check with downloading updates for my laptop. Go to your driver page and manually check for any new drivers/software:

Thanks so much for your reply, CherylG! I've gotten the sound fixed but now have another problem....I downloaded & installed the IDT High-Definition Audio CODEC Driver . As soon as that was done, I totally lost all sound again. I went back a restore point a couple of days ago & have left it alone since then with no problems.
I keep getting messages : "HP Digital Monitoring has stopped working" and "HP TV Monitor has stopped working". I am scared to death to download & install anything else, as I'm afraid it'll stop something else from working!
I have a HP Pavilion dv7 1464nr which is running Windows VISTA 64 bit Service Pack 2. I probably will never use the TV monitor or the BluRay DVD player, as we have a 52 inch LG plasma and a LG BluRay DVD player.
I guess my question is, do I need to do these updates if I'm not going to utilize these things on the laptop?
Thanks for taking the time to answer me!
Have a wonderful weekend!
