Windows 7: No audio at all

windows 7 home 64bit

Hi there I think it is not Compatible with Windows 7 .. Try the following ..

1. Place the driver installation file on the Desktop.

2. Right Click the driver installation file and select Properties/Compatibility Tab. Select Vista

3. Click Apply/OK.

4. Right Click the file and select the Run As Administrator option to install.

It took a bit more digging but:

HP product specs: Product Specifications | HP® Support

HP Support page (Vista 32): Software & driver downloads HP Pavilion dv2715nr Entertainment Notebook PC

HP support NVIDIA chipset: NVIDIA nForce Chipset Driver

HP support Conexant audio: Conexant High-Definition SmartAudio 221 Driver
--> This is the same audio driver maxie pointed to, just referenced from the dv2715nr support page.

I had a HP F762NR machine and it always drove me crazy trying to find the right drivers on HP and Nvidia.

Try installing the Nvidia chipset driver and then the Conexant Smart audio driver. I did see one post on the HP forum that said their machine complained about compatibility, but their's was a different machine.

As always, please post any errors you encounter.

Well done Bill .. It was all a bit confusing the OP stated in Post 3 >>> I checked on the bottom of my laptop and it says HP Pavillion dv 2500, it also says dv27 15nr. .. The dv27 refers to DV2700 not the 2500 how ever that does not matter now thanks to you ..

If only mfgrs would use the same terminology, dating, and versioning - every users life would be much simpler.

I'll leave this in your capable hands maxie.
