I don't know which model HP laptop you have - please update your system specs.

Is this the version you installed?

As you uninstalled the IDT Codec (your sound card drivers) and it works goes back to what I originally said about the "HD Audio Codec" that is also installed. That is the generic, basic function, Windows installed sound driver. As its working now says it should be uninstalled and then your IDT reinstalled. There is no "HD Audio Codec" listed in the downloads at HP for your specific model. Only the IDT.

The HD Audio Codec, from your posts, is most likely interfering with the IDT and the reason it doesn't work or work correctly.

If you are installing the IDT driver, the HD Audio Codec should not appear. Windows appears to be installing that without you recognizing that its being installed.

Could you provide each of the following reports? they'll provide a lot more detail and hopefully better understand your problem

1. List any Problem devices
  • Make sure devices are connected and powered on
  • Click Start->Run, enter: msinfo32. Click the + sign next to Components to expand it
  • Click Problem Devices. Anything appear?
  • If yes, click on it, Ctrl-A to select all, Ctrl-C to copy it, Ctrl-V to paste into next post
  • On the other hand, if no devices are listed, tell me so

2. Generate and attach a DirectX report
  • Click Start->Run, enter dxdiag and click OK
    ===> If you’re running 32 bit Windows, dxdiag will launch on its own
    ===> If you’re running 64 bit Windows, you’ll see 64-bit DxDiag. Click it to launch the 64-bit version of dxdiag
  • Notice progress in lower left window corner
  • When done, click Save Information button and save as a text file to your Desktop
  • Click paper clip icon to attach the file to your next post

3. See How to Report your Device Manager Data. Be sure the data is SAVED AS in "tab delimited text" format. Attach this report as well

Each entry in Device Manager represents a device. This indicates you have two different HD audio devices on your system. One uses the IDT "hardware specific" driver, the other is still using the Windows "generic" driver. Determine what the other device is to find out what driver it needs.

/* edit */
It's also worth noting that the "device name" that appears in DevMgr is defined in the Device's driver files. If no driver is found, the "device name" that appears is whatever name was burned into the device firmware by the vendor.
