Windows 7: Altec Lansing in-built Speakers not working?

Altec Lansing in-built Speakers not working?

Okay. In my HP-Pavilion dv5000 (dv5201) it has Altec Lansing speakers, and I can't find any drivers. I had to clean install 7 because my sister isn't smart, and installed Mandriva over XP. I don't even know it's model, because Win7 doesn't recognise it. I installed all but the language updates, still nothing. I know there isn't any 7 drivers, but I can't even find the Vista ones. I'm on my Cell, so I can't download and try every driver out there. A direct link would be nice. Thanks,
Rangi.

Along with installing the OS, you also need specific sound drivers. XP drivers are not compatible, but usually Vista drivers will work. However, finding drivers may be difficult at best. I just rebuilt a desktop with an Intel motherboard. I found all the drivers except the SigmaTel sound drivers. I tried what Intel had for Vista, what I could find on the web at various places and none would install and work. I finally installed a separate sound card.

I've seen cases, on Dell laptops, of this and the only option was to use a USB connected sound device (alsong with external speakers or headset), to have sound.

Seriously? I build Desktop pc's out of boredom, but I thought there would at least be Vista drivers. My DriverGenius doesn't even note the missing driver. I really wish it was a Mainstream device. I did plug in my Headphone's then Speakers. Wow, this really sucks. Thanks anyways, dude.

So, really the only choice is to dig out my XP Disc? Not gonna happen, I paid alot for Windows 7. Guess my Laptop is soundless. Oh well, at least itunes will still allow me to download.

Hey Guys

Found a solution to this. Download a SWSETUP file it could already be in your windows directory.

Open the folder and run the setup file and you should be sorted.
