Hi, I recently purchased a HP 530 Notebook – GH638AA and have downgraded to XPP (SP2), I also downloaded and installed all drivers from HP site. Yet the system insists there is no audio devices on the system. I double checked all HP drivers as provided on HP site, I decided to reload these i.e.

Conexant CX20549-12 Audio Driver for Microsoft Windows XP
Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) Bus Driver for High Definition Audio (sp33867)

However, the installation of the CX20549 driver failed stating “ Driver installation failed:- Could not find Media device for this driver “ Any Idea's

Download either Belarc advisor (http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html) or Everest (http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4181.html). Both of these applications will tell you exactly what you have (as far as hardware is concerned).
Once you have found out what you are looking for, join driverguide (http://driverguide.com/), run through one of their searches, and you are sure to find what you need :)

Its not the right driver then.

You need to know exactly which model it is.

I had a laptop once where I could not find a WinXP sound driver at all (it previously had Win2000 on it), in the end I made it install the Win2K driver, it complained a bit but I forced it and it worked just fine.

Hi, thanks for help. I found a solution!!!. I reformatted the notebook and installed the Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) Bus Driver for High Definition Audio (sp33867) package first, the notebook then found the audio devicem, I then installed the Conexant CX20549-12 Audio Driver for Microsoft Windows XP package. Stupid that the one must be done first, but that the way it goes. Thanks for input - Botswana

Download the analog sriver set, not the digital set unless you are using the digital output for audio which I doubt...
