Windows 7: SO close - Conexant AC-Link Audio Driver

22 Nov 2009   #71

Windows 7 Professional RTM 7600 (32-bit)
SOLVED! Can anyone point me to the right audio drivers?

None of the previous drivers mentioned in this thread have solved my problem.



With the exception of the lack of sound, I am happy to say that Windows 7 looks and runs perfect on this old HP Pavilion DV1000.

Thanks for any help.


In a last ditch effort to get the sound working on the laptop, I installed the XP version of the audio drivers. To my utter amazement, that worked!!!

I've tried the links posted but most aren't working and the ones that are dont resolve the problem. Hopefully you can help me as i cant seem to solve this on my own.

The hardware ID's


Thank you in advance if you can find the drivers. You seem to be a big help around here.

I'm going to kindof pre-write my next tutorial here so other folks can see how I find these drivers. Ready? Let's go...

Please post back with suggestions, etc. as I'm going to use this post as a source for my next tutorial...
Make this a sticky starting with your post as first.

Like he said, used 7zip or WinRAR not WinZip. WinZip doesn't understand how to extract EXE files that are self extracting archives. 7zip is way better than winzip anyway, it's free and it's what all the cool kids are using Download
Sometimes self extracting archives dump the files and proceed to installing the driver. Some what annoying.

Gateway 7320, Win 7, Conexant Audio, No Sound

I'm just about ready to give up! I've located the "correct" win 7 driver at MS Update catalog...downloaded & sound. I've downloaded the XP driver from Gateway but I can't run the installer (even in compatability mode) and when trying to force the update by manually choosing the driver I get "the system cannot find the file specified" error message.

I'm running a Gateway 7320GZ with Windows 7. The device info is:

Any ideas?
