    Share that driver

    Altec Lansing is just the speaker system... the audio card is made by someone else.

    Now if you would be so kind as to share the driver that finally worked for you, I think quite a few of us would be in your debt.

    I can't find a driver that will work anywhere.

    I used the DV9093ea off the HP site. (XP drivers) First the universal driver, then the Conexant driver. I have a DV9317cl. I have XP Pro running but can't find the NIC card driver (wireless net is working), plus it shows coprocessor needs a driver? and SM Bus? any ideas out there??

    Thanks all!!

    A little help with this.

    I have successfully installed everything but the SATA drivers.
    I have downloaded nLite and am prepared to re-install after slipstreaming the SATA drivers in but have a major problem.
    The only ones I can find extract to an IMA file which i can not add to nLite. Or can I ??
    I have a pavilion dv9000 as per this post.
    Please help by either posting a link to a set of drivers I can load through nLite or how can I add the IMA to nLite. !!.

    I'm trying to dual boot XP x64 on a friend's dv9535nr which came preloaded with Vista. It has the updated BIOS so I can't disable native SATA support to let XP see the drives.

    I've seen where someone has gotten the chipset drivers onto a floppy and installed them via the F6 method, but I can't find or figure out how to get them on a floppy. I downloaded the Intel® Matrix Storage Manager for the GM965 Chipset (the one in the laptop) but it's a EXE file and will only install on that laptop, so I haven't been able to extract the drivers.

    Does anyone have any info that might help me? Thanks in advance.

    PS, I have already done this once to my own personal dv9230us, but it has the older BIOS that played nice and let me disable the native SATA.

    I know this thread is a little old but I am curious if anyone has gotten Lightscribe to work... I have tried every driver I could find but the software refuses to see the drive.

    Hello, I have a HP Pavillion DZ 9420us that came with Vista on it. I can't believe how slow it is on this laptop. I'm running AMD Turion 64 X2 LT-64 2.2ghz option with 2 gigs of ram, so I decieded to install XP Pro with Vista as a dual boot option. I just about have the install complete but I'm in need of one driver. It's for that dang coprocessor. I've searched high and low for this driver with no luck. I'm not even sure what this even does or if it will affect the way my laptop will run. It seems to be running in great shape now even better that the Vista install. I would be greatfull if someone could send me down the right path to find this driver. Thanks in advance.

    I just want to say thanks to absolutezero7 for this help.
    I recently bought an HP Pavilion dv9574la, a great machine with Windows Vista Home Premium and I need to change the OS because of software needs.
    One important thing, that possibly helps another one. That model no have in the BIOS, in the System configuration menu, the possibility to disable the SATA mode, so I had to make a new installation cd, via slip-streaming procedure and put the SATA drivers on it.
    I wanted to post here the link that helps me, but the forum not allow me because is my first post, if someone needs it, just send me a PM.
    One more thing.
    If you are in Argentina (and supose everywhere in South America) and need to contact HP support (via chat or phone), don't waste your time, chat directly with the support in the USA.
    Again, thanks to everyone that contribute in this forum.

    Hi y'all, i've got the same problem like a lot of people here but i'm unable to fix it. I downgraded my hp pavilion 9396ea notebook from vista to xp pro sp2. Now i'm having problems finding suitable drivers for xp. I've tried about every driver from the hp site but it won't work. I keep on getting this message: ' could not find the media device for this driver' although i installed microsoft uaa.

    This is on my device manager:
    other devices: ( all with the ? sign before it )
    • base system device
    • base system device
    • base system device
    • ethernet controller
    • hp integrated module
    • pci device
    • unknown device

    So, i'm unable to find the audio driver but it might be the unknown device. I hope some of you guys knows a solution, i'm getting desperate with this problem...

    Thanks in advance, wicky

    HP Pavilion Laptop dv9000 UAA Audio Driver Problem SOLVED.

    Alright guys, I'm like you... Been trying to get that stubborn winxp on my dv9000. I can't vouch for any of the SATA fixes or for that matter anything beyond this post. The only problem I have experienced with installing WinXP Pro on my laptop is that stubborn Conextant Audio. The reason being... the Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) Bus Driver for High Definition Audio does not install properly. I've tried everything out there.. Every version I could find. No Luck... I've done it all. However I believe I have finally found a solution and I believe it will work beyond the dv9000 series (listen up you 6000 guys). This should take care of all your "media device problems"

    Sytsem Specs...

    HP Pavilion dv9000 Originally Installed with WinXP Media Center

    AMD Turion 64 X2 TL60 2ghz
    Nvidia nforce 430/410 Sata/Chipset
    Nvidia Geforce Go 7600 graphics
    Ricoh 5 in 1 Card Reader
    Dual Toshibia MK8034GSX HDD's
    Conextant HD Audio
    HDAUDIO Soft Data Fax Modem with SmartCP
    2 Gig Ram
    Bluetooth Yada Yada Yada, got the basics covered.

    Steps I took to fix the UAA Audio Driver Problem.

    First, tossed in the WinXP Pro SP3 (Slipstreamed) cd in.
    Had no issues with having to load SATA/Raid Drivers.
    Went throught the basics, chose my C: Drive Partition. Quick Format.
    Let windows install. Did the initial boot to Windows.

    Step1. Installed the Nvidia Chipset Drivers from HP. SP33411

    Step2. Reboot.

    Step3. Took an exisiting copy of Microsofts UAA Driver KB88811.exe (WinXP/2K sp2 version) and extracted it to my desktop using 7zip. Yes, KB88811 is an extractable file.

    Step4. Opened up the Device Manager from My Computer and scrolled on down to "PCI Device", right clicked and "Update Driver"... Installed from specific location, Include this location in the search (Where you Extracted to your desktop), selected the folder and hit Next. (You should get a message that the MS UAA has been found and is ready to be installed)

    Step5. Reboot.

    Step6. I then installed the Conextant Audio and Modem Drivers right away and reboot.

    Step7. "" 4 hardware updates, Video, Audio, Modem, and Touchpad. No Criticals or Other Software needed to be installed.

    Step8. Ran Back to the HP site and grabbed Misc Drivers I still needed.

    ALL drivers I used were acquired off the HP website under HP Pavilion dv9000 CTO Notebook PC, except for the KB88811.exe

    "KB88811.exe" Was aquired off one of my ASUS MB Disc's, I don't know where to find that file on the internet. I believe you have to talk to Microsoft Tech support and they email to you.

    I posted the file up on Rapid Share for now... here's the link...

    Well, that's how I solved my MS UAA problem. I assume this will work with just about any setup. I have no yellow ?marks in my Device Manager btw. I hope this fix works for the rest of you!

    If you really really need the KB88811.exe file you can email me at but don't expect immediate responses plz :)

    Your systems were plenty strong enough for Vista. It's too bad HP didn't supply a dual boot XP/Vista system for you. I ran a dual XP Pro/Vista Home Premium desktop for a month, just to get used to Vista and find out what XP programs and games worked in Vista. To my surprize, after applying the 60+ Vista MS updates, all my games and programs run fine in Vista. I have ditched XP entirely now

    My new HP DV9000

    HI all, I just found this forum and posting,, I bought a new DV9000 from Costco and tried out the Vista,, yuck, So I took it to my local computer store and asked them to put XP on it. They came back and told me it could not be done as all the drivers were not available. They actually reformatted and then figured out the drivers issues,, which is the opposite of the order in which I would have proceeded.

    Anyhoo. Would someone here who has done all the homework for this task, be kind enough to share with me. Maybe even someone has all the relevant drivers in one spot?? I know its not gonna be HP :)

    Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.

    So what drivers are you missing?

    Some common drivers are:

    Sound, video and NIC (Network Internet Connection). XP's native drivers should take care of the rest

    dv9000... the HP website has all the drivers...

    just do a search for dv9000 and click winxp when you get the option

    Tmagic650 TS Ambassador Posts: 17,244   +234

    I thought so... I've never had any trouble finding any HP drivers

    I can found all the drivers, except for the fingertips reader, there is no support for this (as HP told me).-
    if you still need the drivers, I could send you the ones I used via yousendit.
