I've the same issue(s) as Fozzy1990 (I saw his other thread on the DV6000 help). My laptop is a Pavilion DV6525en, originally running Vista, but now running Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit. Although I'm getting a new laptop in one month or so, this issue with the sound card is really annoying me, because I need to use programmes (e.g. Skype) that require a sound device.
Unfortunately, pebbly fix did not work, because after running the driver
(I downloaded the one for my Pavilion model) in compatibility note, I get the message: 'device not located' or something like this.
What I find interesting is that one by one the hardwares installed in this laptop stop working. More than one year ago it was the integrated webcam. Then it stopped recognizing many bus controllers. Now I have the same array of device issues as Fozzy1990 (check Dv 6000 Help
). Plus there's an issue with the WAN port: the computer cannot connect the internet with the cable, just wifi.
I'm starting to think this is part of the planned obsolescence, to force me buying a new computer every x years. This of course is what I'm doing, but, still, I'd like to fix the sound issue meanwhile. What is amazing is that two weeks ago both the WAN port and the sound card were working pretty well. And suddenly they stopped working. I've done all solutions I've found on web forums: nothing works. I even made a fresh installation of Windows 7 and nothing.
So, please, if anyone has any idea of how to solve the audio output issue, please let me know. Have you corrected it, Fozzy1990?
N.B.: No sound device appears in the device manage list, and this is what makes most of the solutions proposed useless.
