Hello, I am new to this forum:
I recently replaced the entire motherboard in my HP Pavilion dv2000 laptop computer (runs Windows XP). The part I replaced was "HP Spare 417035-001". However, I did not replace it with the exact same motherboard. Instead, I used a COMPAQ 440777-001. This may have caused some problems.
There is no volume control on the task bar, the Control Panel indicates "No Audio Device" "No Playback Device" "No Recording Device", and most strangely of all, the manual volume control on the keyboard--with little touch buttons for sound control and Quickplay--make an unusual shrill chirping sound and do not work when I touch them.
This is especially strange because even when the broken motherboard was still in the computer, the manual volume control and Quickplay buttons still made the normal beeping sounds. What is up with that??
The package did not include any driver CDs, instructions, or anything other than the motherboard itself.
I have attempted to go onto COMPAQ's website to find drivers, but it redirects me to HP. Then I downloaded the audio driver from HP, but when I try to run the installation wizard, it brings an error message:
"Driver Installation Failed: Could not find the MEDIA device for this driver."
I have attempted to simply Reinstall the sound driver in the Device Manager, which actually shows a problem with "Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus". This is a Conexant High Definition Smartaudio HD2. The reinstallation does not work, and states it "cannot find the necessary software."
