Windows 7: Need a good audio driver for HP Pavilion ZE4805US

Need a good audio driver for HP Pavilion ZE4805US

I just installed Windows 7 Ultimate 32 on this old notebook and I can’t find the audio and lan drivers anywhere. I know they work with XP automatically but HP doesn’t have them on their site. Maybe there is a way to pull them out of XP but I'm not that techy.


Please help.

Thanks in advance!

If HP lists a XP driver you can try and install them using compatibility mode. Right click on the setup.exe file>properties>compatibility>select XP>check the box run in compatiblity mode. Run setup.exe as administrator. See if they will install. Thanks. Fabe

I kind of figured I would need to do that. My main problem is that I can't find or don't know where to look for the actual drivers themselves. HP doesn't have any on there website and I haven't found any source on the web for them. Is there a way to extract them from an xp disk or download them from Microsoft? If so please explain/link.

Thanks for taking the time to post

If your audio device has a yellow icon next to it in device manager. Right click on the device>properties>details tab>drop down menu>select hardware id>Copy and Paste the hardware id string. This way we can find out what audio device you have and locate a driver for it. Here are a couple other interesting things to read in regards to your Audio UAA (Universal Audio Architecture) HP Pavilion ze4805us Notebook PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English) Program install for UAA Microsoft QFE Update (KB835221) to Support UAA Bus Driver - HP Customer Care (United States - English) Thanks.

Try one of these from the microsoft update catalog. They are XP so compatibility mode will need to be used in the install Microsoft Update Catalog compatbility mode Compatibility Mode hope this will help, if not post back and we'll work on it. Thanks . Fabe
