Having problems with your HP Compaq Presario CQ60Z Notebook ?

Sound Card is not detected.

\015 Hi guys,\015\012I have a computer with integrated sound in the motherboard. It recently stoped working, I tried downloading the drivers from intel and installing them, but the computer crashed after doing so, but when I disable the sound card in the hardware manager the computer is fine again. What would you do?\015

Answers :

Get the drivers from HP. OEM manufacturers often modify the files to make changes to the configuration, and downloading updated drivers from Intel instead can cause problems...
\015\012You don't mention your model number, but if you go here you can enter it and access the files you need. See HP solutions here. or enter your model at the home support page and see solve a problem....
\015\012Otherwise you could run a custom scan at windows update and see what they offer you for your system....
\015\012See articles here and here.
