Hi I have been browsing through the forums and have not yet found a solution to this problem, but a lot of people seem to be having several similar sound problems. I hope someone can help me solve this.
I have an HP Pavilion dv2 notebook. I had windows XP and upgraded to Windows 7. Everything works wonderful, except for the audio drivers
. Windows automatically downloads Conexant HD Audio Driver
But I have two problems with the audio:
The first is that speakers work fine when you turn the notebook on but the driver fails after resuming from sleep mode. If I restart the computer the drivers load again normally.
The second is that the headphones jack is not reconized... when I plug headphones in, sound comes out from both the headphones and the speakers. This is not a configuration problem as the computer does not even show a headphone set when i try to change playback devices. Only the speakers appear in the playback devices window.
I have tried disabling the automatic driver updates from windows 7, uninstalling the drivers windows provides, and installing different drivers from conexant. However none seem to run or install properly. I have even tried to reinstall the original xp audio drivers provided by hp and that doesn't work either. I have also explored every possible audio configuration in windows 7 and still no success.
I'm running out of ideas, and after reading so many posts from different audio cards and motherboards that have similar problems, I'm not even sure if this is entirely a driver problem or if it's also related to windows 7.
If someone knows the solution to this problem or has any ideas that might work, I'll apreciate them a lot. For the moment I'm seriously considering gettin USB headphones...
