  1. Hi, I found your drivers very useful.
    However, I've tried all that I can find, and I cannot get the audio to work. I tried both of your drivers for audio as well, both of those said that they couldnt find a device for the driver. I'm stumped. Currently it says High Definition Audio Device, and shows a Volume Icon and moves it up and down etc, but no sound. Any other ideas? Thanks in advance.

  2. Oh i'm so sorry i posted wrong driver, now the link fixed, download back the audio drivers. uninstall current audio driver.
    (p/s: work late at night must be i'm sleepy dat time ;p )

  3. You are the man! At first, after I installed this new driver, I still had no audio, but I noticed when you click on the speaker icon, it showed headphones. So I plugged a pair in, and they worked, then I went to the audio properties and enabled the speakers as default, and VOILA! It worked. Thanks a million!

    ReplyDelete
  4. You r welcome, anyways you should be proud too coz figure out how to make the changes at the audio properties =)

  14. Ok, now we solve one by one, first you need to open device manager, click start, select run and type DEVMGMT.MSC and press enter. A windows (device manager) will appear, there you can see devices with yellow. For each of them, right click, select properties, select details and choose hardware ID, copy the hardware ID and post it here. Also do the same thing with your VGA/Graphic controller.

  15. Ok some updates, i installed windows 7 In F731US, then i found that the drivers need to install is

    Nvidia Chipset:
    ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp37501-38000/sp37711.exe

    Conextant HD Audio Modem
    ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp37501-38000/sp37709.exe

    Ricoh Card Reader Driver
    ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp38501-39000/sp38689.exe

    For Graphics, just run automatic updates, select optional updates and select Nvidia 7000, install updates and restart. It will adjust your resolution to 1280 x 800

  38. Hi there,
    Ok do this first,

    1. Check the windows update, is there any update for your driver? if yes install it.

    2. Open device manager (click start on the search box type DEVMGMT,MSC and press enter) look if there any devices with yellow mark.

    report back the progress.

  39. hey brother can u pls help me i need drivers for compque c783tu for windows 7....

  40. hye Black-X i just format my presario f700. all driver function but when i connect HSDPA broadband modem, my laptop detect that modem. when i try to connect ,the error said. FAIL TO CONNECT INTERNET.. how to solve that problem? In windows vista i can connect to internet.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Hi bans,
    1st when you insert the USB modem i believe you already install the Broadband software.
    2nd check your firewall, try to turn it off. (also turn of firewall from any antivirus)
    3rd try to use different USB slot and avoid using USB extension.

    If you use windows 7, you can directly connect from the wireless icon on your taskbar.

    Normally this error occur when your modem not properly connected and you need to plug it until you can successfully connect,

    If you want to check driver problem, open device manager and check for any devices with yellow.

    report back the progress,

  42. Hello

    Mine is F730US.
    When I install Windows 7 Ultimate, almost every driver was installed automatically except two.
    One is VGA and another is Quick Launch.
    For the VGA, I tried Windows Updates but there is nothing about it.
    My VGA is GeForce Go 6100 and hardware ID is
    PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0247&SUBSYS_30B7103C&REV_A2
    PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0247&SUBSYS_30B7103C
    PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0247&CC_030000
    PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0247&CC_0300

    For the Quick Launch, I installed the driver for that and the yellow mark was removed but FN key doesn't work.

  48. Hi guys! I find this blog very helpful and I think this is the place to ask about my problem. After I installed Windows 7 on my Presario F700 and installed the drivers one by one everything problem from device manager was fixed except that I have no DVD device working. It is like I don't have it in the laptop. I tried to find a driver for my DVD device but I as understand there are no drivers for this device. I also checked in bios if it is turned off, but it is not. Please give me an advice what to do.

  55. Just like Mikki I am having the same problem. The display resolution does not go above 1024 x 768 and I would preffer for it to be a little higher. I am also using compaq presario f730US. I used your suggestion to go to NVIDIAs website to download the latest drivers but I got the same message as Mikki. It tells me that “The NVIDIA setup program could not locate any drivers compatible with your current hardware. Setup will now exit.” I have a NVIDIA GeForce 6100 graphics card on my laptop. I also went to NVIDIAs website and I used their option of automatically finding drivers for NVIDIA products. It told me that I have Standard VGA Graphics Adapter 16.38 Installed and that I require an update. It tells me that “The manufacturer of this system requires that you download the driver for your GPU from their support site”. But I went to Hp/Compaq websites and they do not have any drivers for windows 7. Please help.

  79. For XP, You have to install Audio Drivers FORCEFULLY,
    1. Install given 221 driver.
    2. Go to Driver Management.
    3. Right click on High Definition Audio Bus.
    4. Go to "Update Drivers"
    5. Give path of file installed in step1.
    6. After Rebooting, Sound works properly.
    For this, Service centre Excutive took lotz of money..

    1.Open C:\SWsetup\SP40762 and open "Leon_Spartan1.1" folder and the open "V32 folder".

    2. Open the LEOHERza.inf with notepad and look for this line:

    [Conexant]
    %HdAudioFunctionDriver.Hermosa5051.DeviceDesc% = HdAudModel,HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_14F1&DEV_5051&SUBSYS_103C30D9

    change it to:

    [Conexant]
    %HdAudioFunctionDriver.Hermosa5051.DeviceDesc% = HdAudModel,HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_14F1&DEV_5051&SUBSYS_103C30D9
    %HdAudioFunctionDriver.Hermosa5051.DeviceDesc% = HdAudModel,HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_14F1&DEV_5051&SUBSYS_103C30D9&REV_02

    save and close the notepad.

    On the same folder ull see the setup.exe, right click -PROPERTIES -Compatibility - set to win vista.

  100. There are 2 options here.

    A: SP35682
    1.Download it here ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp35501-36000/sp35682.exe
    2. Run it and it will result in error, ignore it.
    4. Open device manager - right click on Audio - select UPDATE DRIVER SOFTWARE - BROWSE MY COMPUTER FOR DRIVER SOFTWARE - LET ME PICK FROM A LIST OF DEVICE DRIVER FROM MY COMPUTER
    5. Untick the "show compatible hardware" and then select HAVE DISK and browse to C:\SWsetup\SP35682 and select the INF file (wis30B2a.inf) and continue with instruction.

    B. Edit the driver file
    1. Look at my previous method whch i told u to edit the INF file.
    change it to:
    [Conexant]
    %HdAudioFunctionDriver.Hermosa5051.DeviceDesc% = HdAudModel,HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_14F1&DEV_5051&SUBSYS_103C30D9

  112. Normally the XP driver work with windows 7 but we nee to install t manually.

    First install the XP driver, it will resulting in error, ignore it, because we just want it to extract the driver files. Normally the driver file name is SPXXXXX (exe: sp34345) so it will create a folder in C:\Swsetup\spxxxx.

    1. Click start and on the search box type DEVMGMGT.MSC , adevice manager will open.

    2. On the Network adapter you will see your wireless with yellow exclamation mark.

    3. Right click on it and select update driver.

    4. Select browse my computer for driver software.

    5. Browse to the folder C:\swsetup/SPXXXX

    6. Continue with on screen insruction

    2. Look at the device manager, see if there any devices with yellow exclamation mark (!)

    ReplyDelete
  124. yes i have tried all of them..but it said that there is no media device found..help me ..this is anke..i cant install it. .

    ReplyDelete
  125. 1. First of all i need to clarify once again that make sure that there are no device mark with yellow in device manager.

    2. WINDOWS VERSION.
    I'm facing the same problem with f700 (f32US) with windows 7 professional.
    Turn out that using windows 7 ultimate the sound work without any driver installation. maybe your windows 7 version is the problem.

    3. UPDATE.
    Don't run any windows update.

    4. OTHER WAY TO SOLVE IT.
    (download the driver above and extract it using winrar)

    a) Uninstall the audio drivers in device manager:
    under sound/audio controller. Look for AUDIO DEVICE or HIGH DEFINITION AUDIO DEVICE. right click on it and select uninstall.
    b) then click scan for hardware change, a hardware update wizard will appear, select BROWSE MY COMPUTER FOR DEVICE DRIVER - SELECT FROM A LIST OF DEVICE DRIVER SOFTWARE FROM MY COMPUTER -NEXT-HAVE DISK
    c) browse to the driver folder we extracted earlier and select the inf file.
    d) continue with on screen instruction and reboot.

  126. even realtek does not work in my windows 7 ultimate...the sound/audio is not found in the device manager . . even if i scan still there is no changes..even if install the drivers above. . .this is anke . . . please help me . . :(

    ReplyDelete
  127. Your model didn't use realtek but Conextant high definition audio, it kinda weird that there are no audio devices appear in your device manager.
    Try to look again for any devices marked with yellow or any devices have the word "audio". Make sure that you click view and select show hidden devices.

    If still not found any ,I have a suggestion that may seem little complicated and take times, first we must make sure the audio is there, i mean your audio chip is still ok, how about try to reinstall windows XP or Ubuntu, see if any audio devices appear in device manager, If yes it mean we can install windows 7 and work with the audio drivers, I got 3 models F700 which 2 of them have audio chip faulty this month. The early thing happen that sometime the audio appear in device manager and sometimes not.

    report back the progress, ill try to assist as much as i can

    ReplyDelete
  128. yes there is really no audio in my device manager . . .ive already download an ubunto iso file but i dont know how would i install ir..that audio faulty also hapenns to me but now it seem that its never happen anymore int the past weeks my laptop have sound but now i dont have its like it is scheduled to have sounds...i thnk i have a faulty chip also can you still help me.???this is ANKE

    Ok, if last week it work, the are another way. Try to perform system restore and select the date before the audio gone, to do that:
    1. click start - and on the search box type SYSTEM RESTORE.
    2. then click NEXT.
    3. Tick the box SHOW MORE RESTORE POINT.
    4. Select the date before the audio happen. click next and continue with on screen instruction.

  133. I hope this doesn't appear on your Blog "twice," Black. I wrote in "comment" box, but had to "sign-in" before posting. I thought I posted properly after sign-in, but when I refreshed webpage...it wasn't there? I hope it's not a delay to display thing to prevent foul language, etc..

    If so, please except my apology; I'm a 60 yr old semi-computer literate retired pipe-fitter and still learning.


    Hi Black,

    It's apparent, via reading your posts, that you really know your computer poop in general, and specifically regarding HP Notebooks. So, I'm hoping you can help me out of my dilemma.

    I was given a Compaq Presario F739wm - prod #gr970ua that originally had Vista for OS installed, and prior to my receiving it, Win7 Home 32bit version installed "over it" as opposed to a "clean install".

    It was acting very quirky, which is why it was given to me. I've since done a "clean install" of Win7 and I believe I've found somewhat functional Win7 drivers via Windows Update and an application called "Slim Drivers."

    However, when I tried to install the recommended "Coprocessor" driver, I got an error message, that said something to the effect that it wasn't compatible? The Coprocessor, is still showing up in device Device Manager as having no driver (yellow triangle/exclamation mark).

    Also, please note; I'm using a WiFi usb mouse and keyboard instead of touch-pad, and I'm viewing via a separate monitor

    As to the "quirky" behavior, Black, what's happening, is; it intermittently keeps "freezing/locking-up...but only partially? I can click on some things, but other things like page minimize, for example, do nothing when in the "freeze state." I thought it may be the usb mouse/keyboard, but when I try to use the touch-pad, I have same problem. It seems to happen most often when I'm watching a video via youtube or streaming an internet radio station.

    Quirk #2 is; all I have to do to "fix" the above situation/freeze, is; hit "ctrl-alt-del" and open Task Manager. I don't have to do anything in Task Manager, just open it?

    Questions:

    1. Would you have a link to "all" the Win7 drivers you feel would be best for my Presario F739wm as configured?

    2. If not "all" the drivers, would you have a link to the "Coprocessor" driver?

    3. Do you think the missing Coprocessor driver is causing the aforementioned quirky behavior?

    Thanks in advance, Black, I look forward to your response.

    Answers:

    1. All the drivers above suits your model.
    Reason: all the f73X(f730-f740) series use similar driver
    The driver for coprocessor should installed automatically after chipset installation. In your case download this driver and try which work:

    HP Driver:
    SP36240- download

    If direct install failed:
    I. right click on the driver file.
    II. Select properties - compatibility - set to windows vista.
    III. Right click and select run as admin.

    Or you may also use this driver from nvidia:
    http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce_vista_win7_32bit_15.49.html

    2. Use link above =)

    3. By Theory, the coprocessor can be the cause since it control the cpu process to be more effective, but practically from my experience it doesn't.
    Normally the cause for this problems are:
    1. Overheating (use speedfan to check, make sure all is under 65C)
    2. Many start up program (use MSCONFIG to disable unwanted start up)
    3. Installing Antivirus - windows 7 doesn't need AV
    4. Low RAM (at least u must have 2GB)
    5. Corrupted windows/registry/unstable windows installation -reinstall windows
    6.Low disk space (must have at least 4GB for each partition)
    7. Mobo probs (not really the cause for your probs i think)

    P/s: no 1,2,3 and 4 is the most important to optimize.

    You say that if watching video etc cause it freez, check you device manager under video adapter, is it standard VGA?

  137. Hi nice post. I have a few dozen of the f700 and then the hp dv6000 I am loading windows 7 on. I found on the compaq f700 I cant get any of the mousepads to work. I put windows 7 ultimate 64 bit on and everything works pretty much right from install but the trackpads are unresposnsive and I do not even see them in the hardware profile. I do see some exclamation points but those are listed as generic interface items I havent figured out yet...Maybe Its just I used the 64 bit version and not the 32bit??

    ReplyDelete
  138. It is hard to identify trackpad since it not named as "trackpad" or any devices which refer to it. I never test wif 64-bit. Maybe the reason for the generic wif yellow exclamation mark is because u r using 64-bit.
    If you can get hardware ID for the generic interface maybe i can get some info for it. The other thing is sometimes these can be the factor:
    Windows version (ultimate, profesional etc)
    Netframework (should be installed)
    Microsoft visual C++ (etc)

    P/s: So far i installed windows 7 on several f700 and the pads just work fine without any driver installed. (just wonder how u got dozen of them ^_^)

  152. hi malik and rani,
    that happen because windows 7 normally mistaken audio drivers for other drivers and automatically installed other driver, so it not listed in device manager under the sound and audio controller.

    the other thing is after windows 7 installation, don't update(windows update) but install the driver first. Make sure that u are using windows 7 ultimate.
