Please Help! HP Pavilion zd8000 Audio Driver

Hey all!
Had my zd8000 on OS XP until oct 22. now that i've upgraded i've lost my audio driver, windows update has tried to install it but it wont. I've extracted the contents, manually installed them myself... rebooted and it just wont work.

This is not a hardware issue
=D

Info on my driver
PCI\VEN_10B9&DEV_5451&SUBSYS_0024103C&REV_02

PCI\VEN_10B9&DEV_5451&CC_0401

Now I was reading on this and many many people have having the same issue... Given this driver info a person on these forums "baarod" came up with this:

Note the PCI Database listing compared to your vendor and device codes: PCI Vendor and Device Lists

So HERE is the real driver: a bit of rebranded ALi code with a Conexant inf...

now he seemed to figure it all out but that link is dead. I've tried getting a hold of him to no avail.

I'm dieing without sound! if you have any knowledge you could shed on me I would greatly appreciate it!

Welcome to Seven Forums. I fell your pain their is a very long thread on this already, it even ptovides the same link. Maybe some suggestions in it that might help. Other than that it appears to be a unsolved issue. Wish I had more for you, other than being directed to a pay for driver program. Fabe SO close - Conexant AC-Link Audio Driver

Well, mine is working now. Had my friend look at it (has a computer degree) he basically said he did a clean install of Vista, installed the drivers, and then went back to Windows 7.

Granted not everyone has access to Vista, but that's what he did.
