Hello, i've gotta similar problem. i lost sound after an xp pro install. then in my hardware profile i have the question mark next to the multimedia audio controller. i ran belarc and got the "None Detected" under "multimedia." i've exhausted all resources to find audio drivers. i have an hp pavilion zd8215us and hp has nothing for it. any help getting my audio back would be GREATLY APPRECIATED.

hi,
try this link to get the driver you need:

yeah, i tried already. as i mentioned, HP as nothing for it, which is surprising. hey had all the other drivers i needed except for sound. thanx anyway

when you install this driver click yes, this time only on search windows updates, itll install the correct driver.

Hello,

Nothing about any integrated audio device

Neither in Belarc,
Nor in the Product Specifications http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00379693&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=uk&lang=en&os=228&product=500252
Nor in the drivers provided by HP http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00379693&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=uk&lang=en&os=228&product=500252

I suppose the audio device is hidden because it's included in the chipset. Try to reinstall the Intel Chipset Installation Utility http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=ob-30950-1&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=uk&lang=en&os=228&product=500252
thanks, i've checked the specs and i already tried reinstall the chipset utility. i thought that would work too. very good suggestions but it's like my sound just disappeared i have a usb sound device as a temp fix Hopefully) but i'm gonna just have to pull apart my laptop so i can visually see what audio manufacturer chip is inside, i just haven't gotten around to it yet. thanx again though
