Installing Conexant CX20468-31 AC97 Audio Driver in windows 7




Last Update July 25 2014.

Here is the driver you will need to install, but please remember sometimes direct installation will failed. So you either need to tweak the drivers or install it manually via device manager.
 
1. Conexant CX20468-31 AC97 Audio Driver and Audio Driver EQ
Download SP34789 (32-bit)
Download SP35558 (64-bit)

2. To save your time, here is the drivers (modified) which I already tested and worked.
SP30399 (mod) (32-bit)
SP35558 (Mod) (64-bit)

3. You can use your original windows XP or Vista drivers, but you need to tweak the drivers or install it manually. You can read on how to do that below. (Note: If you have DELL notebook, you can simply install the drivers by using compatibility mode)

If the drivers failed to install, there are 2 method we can us to install the drivers.

1. Edit the drivers Hardware ID
2. Manually install the drivers via device manager



1. Edit the driver Hardware ID

1. First download your original windows XP drivers, you can use this driver instead:

WINDOWS XP DRIVERS
Conexant CX20468-31 AC97 Audio Driver and Audio Driver EQ
Download SP30399


2. Right click and select run as administrator,(This method does not intend to install the drivers but we just want to extract the driver file.)


3. Then proceed the installation until the installation windows appear.


4. install it and ignore the error, now we already extract the driver file to C:\swsetup\SP30339. Note that if you are using different drivers set or you want to extract this driver in other location, you can extract the drivers using winrar or 7zip software).


5. Now we need to find our audio hardware ID first.

Follow Guide here to find your hardware ID, when you get it remember to paste the hardware ID in notepad (for further reference). The result should be like this, the ID is mine realtek audio and not conextant so your ID may differ from mine:



6. Now open c:\swsetup\sp30399



7. Now in the sp30399 folder find the qta3091.inf and open the files.



8. Now find the values i highlight in the picture below.


9. Then paste your hardware ID below the line %*WDM_AMCAUD.DeviceDesc%=WDM_AMCAUD,PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_4370&SUBSYS_3091103C with your hardware ID  in STEP 4.

so the line may look like this:

[Conexant]
%*WDM_AMCAUD.DeviceDesc%=WDM_AMCAUD,PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_4370&SUBSYS_3091103C
%*WDM_AMCAUD.DeviceDesc%=WDM_AMCAUD,PCI\VEN_10B9&DEV_5451&SUBSYS_0024103C&REV_02


Notes: 
The method above use the SP30399 which is XP drivers, you may also test with SP37489 using the same method.




2. Manual Installation



Before we start, please install the audio drivers first, I recommend to install yopur original windows xp drivers. If you does not have it just download and install the drivers I provided above. Ignore if installation resulting in error we  just want to extract the driver files.

1.First open device manager by click start and select run type "devmgmt.msc" as shown in the pictures below.


 
 2. Then on the audio with yellow mark right click and select update driver.




 3. Then select browse my computer for the Driver software

4.Then select let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer.


5. Then select have disk and select browse

6. Browse to SP34789 and select the Qta3091.inf.
7. Proceed with on screen instruction. Ignore if it complaint.

NOTE:
You can repeat this process by using different drivers to get the best results. (In certain case mic does not work so you need to use different driver version).

  29. most of the time this problem cause by driver, your original driver release by hp is:
    sp33906.exe

    So try to reinstall the original driver, if still did not work try with the other version of conextant cx20468:

    SP30578

    sp29356.exe

    sp28482.exe

    1. to restore back the audio, you need to perform system restore, to do that click START and type SYSTEM RESTORE on the search box, the select system restore on the top.

      Restore your computer by select the date where the audio is still working.

    5. the moded driver should work, it look like your windows missing something, because normally your ID's will end with &REV_02 instead of &REV_03 ,is there any other yellow exclamation mark on device manager, there are chances that ur windows version (like win 7 pro, starter) prevent the audio to install correctly.

    1. Your hardware ID is end with &REV_1000 which often the method on the post above won't work. Normally it will end with REV_01, 02 or 03.
      So, before i gave the moded driver, look at the back of your laptop which you'll find a small sticker on it. you will find you specific series for V3000 such as V3210TU or V3450au etc. post the series here and i'll try to mod the original first before try with other driver sources.

      For now you may try with this driver (sometimes it works):

      1. Download this driver : SP35628

      2. Download and run, ignore the error.

      3. Right click on the Audio in device manager (the one which you got the hardware ID) and select update driver.

      4. Browse my computer for driver software.

      5. Don't search, i will choose the....

      6. Have Disk, Browse and point to this location : C:\SWsetup\SP35682 and select the inf file.

    1. I have read your install instructions (Installing Conexant CX20468-31 AC97 Audio Driver
      in windows 7)
      and all the responses and to be sure I am confused.

      Some responses seem to indicate that your procedure will work for a 64-bit installation
      and some indicate it will not work.


      I have a HP Pavilion zd8000 CtO Laptop (circa 10/2008) on which I have now installed Win 7
      Pro 64-bit.

      As somewhat expected I have no sound. In fact moving the pointer over the red-xed speaker
      in the taskbar says "No Audio Output Device is installed.

      I have been unable to determine exactly which Conexant AC97 Audio Device (by number ,e.g. CX......)is
      installed so that is as much as I can identify it.

      I tried to install the Vista 64-bit driver and that did not work.

      The following are the three devices for which there are no Win 7 64-bit drivers and show up
      in Device Manager with the yellow Exclamation Point.

      Mass Storage Controller
      PCI\VEN_104C&DEV_8033&SUBSYS_3082103C&REV_00

      to download and where to get it from? I would then like to follow your procedure since you
      seem to have helped many. Thanx

  62. Hi Black, I have HP Pavillion dv6502au notebook initially with vista installed. Later I installed win 7 for the past 2 years everything was working fine. But suddenly for past few weeks my Audio comes and goes. When I play a video for a couple of minutes the sound works then its gone. If I don't play for few min sound returns n then the cycle continues.
    This was my previous driver - sp37732 - Conexant High-Definition Audio Chip
    Upate by windows update to - sp40170 - Conexant High-Definition SmartAMC Audio Chip.

    My hardware i is:
    Conexant High Definition SmartAudio HD2
    HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_14F1&DEV_5045&SUBSYS_103C30CF&REV_1001
    HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_14F1&DEV_5045&SUBSYS_103C30CF

    Please, I hope you could help me on this.

    1. If few weeks ago it worked and suddenly stop working, system restore would solve the problem.

      1. click start and type system restore on the search box.
      2. select system restore from the result.
      3. Select choose from a different restore point. NEXT
      4. tick the box "show more restore point".
      5. Select the available date which your audio still working properly.

      then select next and wait until system restore finish and restart.

      Delete
    2. I tried system restore but to no avail. After I restart sometimes the sound icon is ok sometimes its crossed. Right now my sound icon is crossed when I check my device manager under Sound,video and game controllers it shows as unknown device. Right click I get No drivers are installed for this device. If I try update driver software from there it says Conexant Raptor HD video capture (Philips TUV 1236D)driver software is up to date.
      I tried re-installing my sound drivers for conexant (sp37732 - Conexant High-Definition Audio Chip.exe and sp40170 - Conexant High-Definition SmartAMC Audio Chip.exe) it gives error - Driver Installation failed: could not find the device for this driver.

    3. The problems is sometimes sound working and sometimes not, Reformating is the last thing to check either hardware faulty or system corrupted by windows update. Windows update is good especially for security but sometimes mess with the hardware drivers.
      Try manual installation, right click on audio - update driver - browse my computer for.. - don't search i will choose... - have disk - browse to c:/swsetup/SP37732 - uncheck show compatible hardware and select conextant audio.

      other thing to do is when it has the cross sign try right click and see if there are eneble option available. if yes enable it. You can also right click - select properties and select roll back drivers.

    1. There are 3 ways to install your driver:

      1. Try this mod driver for SP37732 : Download link

      2. Download this driver:
      SP37732
      or
      SP40170
      right click on the driver file -properties -compatibility - set to windows vista. Install and reboot.

      3. If 2nd method failed, you will have 2 folder which is SP37732 and SP40170. Install the drivers using the "manual method" i describe in the post above.

      report back the progress.

    2. Hi Aziz. Thanks a lot for replying.

      while installing both the above drivers i am getting this error message " Driver installation failed: could not find the device for this driver. "
      i have done exactly the same way u have mentioned above. but still same error.

      also i have tried installing driver with the method where we have to select Have disk & then from C drive - swsetup folder & then select the file. but still getting error message as This device cannot start. (Code10)

      i am really fed up now as no audio to my laptop since 3-4 months.

      also my cd/dvd drive icon is missing .

      please help

      Delete
    3. There is one more explanation for your problems, I think your windows is missing the core/important windows system file. This happen because during the windows installation, some of the file is not completely installed on your system. This also would explain the missing DVD icon on your system. The hard way is to figure out what is missing, the easy way is to reinstall windows. I prefer reinstall windows using USB stick and avoid using DVD/CD.
      This happen to me more than 10 different laptops i repaired. Can you reinstall your windows, If not it is difficult to workaround this problem.

    4. Hi Aziz.

      i had installed windows 7 for around 5-6 times now using USB stick since cd/dvd drive isn't working on my laptop. & every time i installed OS the problem with the drivers & CD/DVD drive remains the same.

      i don't have original windows 7 setup; i have downloaded it from torrents.com so there may be possibilities that the windows setup which i installed has some files missing in it (please correct me if i am wrong here) or i might have installed it wrongly

      1. Can you please provide me link from where i can download windows 7 & which is defects free.
      2. Can you please tell me the step by step method of installing windows 7 using USB stick.
      OR
      3 Can i go ahead & install windows 7 again with the same setup file & with the same method.

      I have found 2 versions
      1. Windows 7 with Service Pack 1 x64 download
      2.Windows 7 with Service Pack 1 x86 download

      confused between 64 & 86

      My laptop supports 32 bit.

      Please suggest.
      Thanks

      Delete
    7. x64 (64-bit) is for laptop which have 4GB RAM and above. x86 (32-bit) is for laptop which have 3GB RAM and below. If you have 4GB ram and install x86, windows will detect 4GB but only 3GB is usable. So to fully utilize RAM with 4GB capacity and above, x64 is preferable for maximum performance.
      To check your ram capacity, right click on computer and select properties, it will show how much RAM your laptop have.

      From what i know, your laptop only support up to 2GB maximum RAM so x86 (also called 32-bit) is the best choice.

      As per your advice i had downloaded & installed windows 7 from above link also installed all the above mentioned drivers but still the problem remains same. and Hence after all my efforts i decided to take my laptop to HP service center & there i came to know that my Graphic card isn't working & i need to change it. that guy is HP service center is telling me that missing DVD icon & Audio driver problem is due to corrupted graphic card. would u suggest me to spend 4000 INR for new graphic card ? or can i get used one somewhere & i can change it by myself ? or is there any other solution to it?

      Please help.

      Delete
    13. If the problem is graphic, you need to change it because sooner or later it will affect the whole laptop. The price is fair enough because normally it will cost 5500 INR. There is a cheaper way by fixing(instead of replace it) your current graphic but the chance of getting it fixed is 50-50.

      Delete
    14. Okay..i will do that.
      & can i use my laptop's CD/DVD drive & Hard disk on my desktop pc? and what cable do i need.

      Thanks

      Delete
    15. First for hard disk yes you can use it in your desktop as external or internal hard disk. To make it as internal just remove the HDD from the laptop and connect both power cable and sata cable on the HDD. To make it as external there is 3 option, one by using external casing, hdd usb cable, or hard disk docking.

      Im not sure about DVD, but I think there is external case to make is as external dvd device.

      Delete
    16. Thanks.

      Above you have mentioned that there is a cheaper way by fixing graphic card can you tell me how can it be fixed and can i do it by myself? because i want to save my money and i am ready to take chance even if the chance of getting it fixed is 50-50.

      can you please reply

    18. I don't think it is easy to do by yourself, try Google "soldering laptop graphic card". That is how the shop fix the Graphic instead of replacing the Graphic with new one. The different is certain shop have advance tools specifically design to fix the graphic, so the chance for error during the process is low.

    I have upgraded my Compaq V3702AU from Vista to Win7 Ultimate SP1. I see "No Audio Device Installed" error on speaker icon. Also, no "Sound, Video, Game Controllers" under Device Manager. I had Conexant Smart Audio driver earlier.

    1. Hi sonal, this type of error normally cause by windows update or windows version. What you can do right now is don't upgrade to windows 7 from vista but do a clean windows 7 installation. Try to use different copies, version for windows 7. It happened to me many times and i solve it by using different version of windows. Hope this help.

      Delete
    2. Many thanks for your reply. Sorry I mentioned it wrong, I didn't upgrade but did a clean install to Win7. After that I saw the Audio Driver Error, then using Windows update it automatically updated itself and the audio started to work. But with installation of SP1 the issue reverted back. Now I am stuck, pls suggest.

      Delete
    3. Just make system restore and select the date where the audio still working. If you want to get windows 7 with sp1, look the driver name and version on the windows update (or update history) and download it at Microsoft update catalog catalog.update.microsoft.com/‎.

      So simply put:
      1. look at the update history for audio driver.
      2. Download it from microsoft update catalog and install.

      If you just need the audio back, just perform system restore.

      Delete
    4. Ok, unfortunately I didn't have a restore point created for the good configuration when audio worked. Checked windows update history of all updates installed but could not find any driver related update, checked all reco, imp & optional ones which got installed. I suppose that it may part of some update for compatibility from vista to win7 & not marked as specific driver update. Yesterday, I installed rest of the other updates available also, but now also no success.

      Delete
    5. I agree with you there are parts of the updates mess with the driver. I suggest to uninstall the audio driver from device manager and select scan for hardware changes after reboot. See what happen. If there are audio driver installed in device manager but no sound maybe installing MOD driver will help. I will guide you to that but lets try the steps i mentioned earlier first.

      Delete
  83. I do not see "Sounds, Videos and Game Controllers" listed in my Device Manager so I suppose I cannot uninstall it. What is MOD?

    ReplyDelete
  84. MOD = modified.

    I recommend to uninstall the updates first.
    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/remove-update#1TC=windows-7

    The uninstall SP1:
    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/uninstall-sp1

    See if it solve the problems.

    I know re install windows and re-run the update will be the last option. But I think that is the best way to do it.

    3. RESOLVED!!! Thank you so much. I downloaded a free trial version of WINRAR. I extracted the files, right clicked the setup.exe and ran as administrator, and it worked great. I had to restart my laptop as I was playing around with the devices in device manager and uninstalled it. So, restarting the laptop got it to appear again (for those that may try this fix and run into that problem). Thank you for the extremely quick response and for taking the time to mod this install for me. I'll be sure to pass along the good favor. I spent over 2 hours last night trying to get this to work. Woke up this morning, and had it done in a snap, thanks to you.

    2. Hello again Vid,
      I need more information:
      1. Look at this picture : http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf-JAVA/Doc/images/540/c03460867.jpg , look at the model and post your model here, dv6000 is the product number, RG563AV#ABA is the computer number, but the most important is the model number.

      2. Did the audio worked before? what is your windows 7 version, ultimate etc.

      3. On the device manager, is there any device with yellow mark?

      4. Get the hardware ID for the audio and post it here, you can read how to get the hardware ID here: http://laptop-driver.blogspot.com/2009/12/how-to-check-hardware-id.html

    1. 1. System Restore
      If your audio already working, mean there are changes made to your notebook such as Windows automatic updates. We need to undo these changes by using System restore. By using system restore you can restore your computer to a specific time where the audio still working, means you need to select the dates before Monday or at least on Monday (Oct 27th).
      Here is the tutorial for the system restore:
      http://laptop-driver.blogspot.com/2008/09/system-restore.html
      Older dates is preferable.

      2. If system restore does not bring your audio back, try with this driver :

      extract the driver file, right lick on setup and select run as admin to install.

      3. Or Try with your original Vista drivers:
      Install this driver in compatibility mode for Windows Vista:
      http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp35501-36000/sp35849.exe

      Normally your issue will solve if you are able to perform system restore.
