As explained above migration to windows 7 is not going well! I hope my ignorance will help others...
I could get into the story of how I convinced my wife this version is the answer to some of her problems I have tried all drivers, windows xp, windows xp 64 (since the wnidows 7 version is 64bit), (Vista both versions drivers because supposedly windows 7 was built of that frame work) Also got mass Storage controller (problems) Multimedia Audio Controller (problems) PCI Modem (problems) I have had problems ever since one of the disc I burned for restore purposes for windows that came with the system (windows media edition) bit the dust. Any Help would be greatly appreciated in advance, or fathers day will be a complete bummer 🙂 Thanks take care and God Bless Ray

This method was reported as working in Vista64 and Windows 7 64bit version on Dv8000 models.
2) Solution for other problems:

Click with right button of Your mouse on each yellow sign and choose properties. Then go to bottom details and paste here Hardware Ids. This way we will know what it is.
Below You've got example how to do it:

Thank you so much for this example! It worked on my RTM version for zv6170us laptop audio driver. I'm now going to install the released version and see if it worked. I'm looking for a modem driver too. So I'll try your example for it too. I had to repeat your example but click on the actual file for it it work. Clicked twice. Any advice for modem is appreciated.

I've got an HP DV8310US and I've tried the fix (No Sound with Windows 7) you've explained here with no luck. Am I doing something wrong? There's another line under that heading. It is:
Am I supposed to delete it or leave it?
I've tried deleting it and leaving it and neither way has worked. Any suggestions?

Just found a routine for the Conexant AC Link audio. See:
On the unidentified Mass Storage controller, I found that the driver for Vista on my dv8125nr actually installed the onboard card reader without question. It was the sp35308 driver that worked. Now I have Sound, and Mass storage.
The only device not yet found is the PCI Modem ddevice still listed under 'other devices.' I'll lleave that alone for now.

PCI Modem Hardware Id's for the DV8000 reads as follows:
EDIT: woops, backed it up and posted the ID's to the wrong thread. Sorry.
