I would start here.
Conexant: Modem Driver Assistance
As it's the manufacturers actual site.

You may actually have to write them I can't find any dedicated audio cards mentioned on their site... which is odd.

Have you actually set the Microphone volume level? That is in the Sound Panel.

If it's not a volume level setting issue, with the mic problem you list, I doubt that drivers will do anything for that. Have you tried an external "Computer" mic? Most that are using PC's with on-line voice applications use a combo headset/mic type to minimize feedback problems.

My new Lenovo laptop has the Connexent audio but the driver for it won't work on your PC. Chip manufacturers such as Conneexent, RealTek, IDT, etc, only make the chips and the motherboard or PC vendor is the one that supplies the drivers since they are customized for their motherboard and/or PC.

If your PC vendor does not have one, you are probably not going to find one that will work (or install) anywhere else.

Reinstall what version the PC vendor has and see if that helps.

Same problem

I thought I was going crazy because I am pretty good about figuring these things out. But there seems to be no Windows 7 drivers for the Conexant high def smartaudio 221 device. As everyone seems to note, the microphone function has been nearly rendered useless. Quite disappointing since this notebook was made by HP and it isn't that old.

I am trying to figure a workaround because I am trying to do online video chat as well as record audios for business purposes. I hate to think I am going to have to buy another machine just because of this.

The only thing I can think of at this point is to start digging for ANY conexant win 7 drivers you can find, and see if any of them happen to work with your device. I'm actually using a driver for a different audio device than the one I actually have, apparently the main chip is the same though. So it works perfectly (with the exception of the original crysis which sputters noise constantly) I can deal with one issue in a old game to have everything else work right though.
