HP Vista driver downloads

Well, for those who've been waiting on HP to update their website with Vista drivers for their notebooks, HP has started to post them. Most aren't up right now, but a few have been posted. They don't seem to be cross-posting them across all models yet, but if you select one of the new systems that has Vista preloaded, such as the Intel-based dv6245us -- http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/s...340169&lang=en -- or the AMD-based dv6225us http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/s...340164&lang=en you can get the few drivers they have posted.

So far there's:

HP Quicklaunch buttons: 32-bit and 64-bit -- 6.10B or 6.10C
HP Wireless Assistant: 32-bit and 64-bit -- here
HP Bluetooth module support: 32-bit and 64-bit -- here
Lightscribe Host Software: 32-bit and 64-bit -- here
Broadcom Wireless support (AMD systems): 32-bit and 64-bit -- here

I'll try to keep this updated as HP releases new drivers. They're WAY behind given that Vista reached RTM months ago and was released in stores today, but at least so far they are supporting x64 with all of their driver releases.

Update: New drivers I've found on HP's website-- 1/30
Intel Wireless driver for Vista: 32-bit and 64-bit --here
Nvidia GeForce Go 6150 (and 7200 according to inf): 32-bit and 64-bit -- here
Nvidia Nforce Chipset drivers: 32-bit and 64-bit -- here
Essential System Updates for Windows Vista (not sure what this does, and its listed for the businessline models but installs fine on all systems): 32-bit and 64-bit -- here

Update: 1/31 -- latest drivers ripped directly from the HP FTP -- not on their website yet!

So, I'm learning a bit about HP. I guess they post the files to their FTP server as they get them, then the web database goes through once a week and updates with the latest FTP updates. I'm not that patient, so here's the latest drivers from the FTP.

ALL are both 32-bit and 64-bit!!!

HP Ricoh Card reader drivers here
HP Update Software here

There are apparently a number of different flavors of Conexant HD Audio devices -- none matched my device ID, but maybe one of these will work on your system.
Conexant HD Audio -- type 1 here
Conexant HD Audio -- type 2 here
Conexant HD Audio -- type 3 here

If the Conexant drivers finds that your system isn't one supported by that driver you'll get a MEDIA error when installing and the installer will quit.

Hopefully these get you closer to working systems.

Update: 2/1 -- Nothing good on HP's FTP yet today, but user Jamaicanyouth came through with some files ripped off a new HP PC

Quickplay 3.0 for Windows -- download from the link in his thread here
Torrent of lots of software/drivers -- download from the link in thread here

Included in the torrent are alot of files that have already been linked to, plus a few new drivers I've posted at http://www.mediafire.com/?1yjahnjwkji.

That file includes:
HP Webcam drivers
HP Help and Support
HP Active Support Library
HP Wireless Home Network Setup

As before all are compatible with Vista 32-bit and 64-bit. Included in the torrent are also some of the large applications preloaded on systems (HP games, NIS 2007 trial), so if you want those grab the torrent while its active. Also, all the video drivers I'm seeing posted by HP are essentially beta drivers from November and thus have been replaced by newer drivers on Windows Update so I haven't linked to those.

Synaptics Touchpad Driver -- Windows update has touchpad drivers on it, but the manufacturer seems to have newer ones that are signed for Vista, available here.

Lastly, today HP has put up BIOS updates for most Vista capable notebooks. Be sure to go to HP's site and grab the update for your system's BIOS.

2/1 Update #2: HP website now has most of these downloads!

HP finally has put up most of these downloads on their website. To access them, though, you'll need to pretend you have one of the new systems preloaded with Vista. Instead of looking for drivers for a dv2000t, for example, look for drivers for a dv2200 CTO. For 6000 series, dv6200 CTO, and for 9000 series dv9200 CTO. Nothing new there, just the same drivers I've linked to, but it's nice they're somewhat more accessible. The main change in these new systems seems to be the inclusion of Conexant "Venice" HD Audio, instead of Conexant "Waikiki" HD Audio, so those drivers won't work on some systems, but the others should.

Update 2/2: HP posts Vista Upgrade Utility to FTP -- and a few new drivers

If you've been waiting for HP to release their official upgrade utility, you can now grab it here. The utility is supposed to be run on XP. It will update your system to the latest BIOS, create XP restore DVDs/CDs if you don't already have them, advise you to back up your info, and delete your restore partition and quickplay partition (merging them in with your main partition). Once all that's done, it will have you insert your Vista DVD to perform the actual upgrade. The utility itself doesn't contain the drivers you'll need, but they want you to install the HP Update software (linked above) so when they finally post drivers you'll have them. You should probably read the full directions from HP located here.

For drivers, there's a few ones worth mentioning:
Conexant HD Audio #4 -- yet another one for "Venice" chipsets - here
Conexant Modem Driver -- also for "Venice" chipsets - here
Intel GMA950 Graphics driver -- this one's newer than the old ones HP posted, but I still would think WindowsUpdate has this or a more recent driver -- but if you want it, it's here

A note on HD Audio here: HP uses Conexant HD Audio on their consumer notebooks, but they use MANY different versions. The two main types are "Venice" and "Waikiki". If you select your HD Audio device in device manager, go to properties, then details, and finally select Hardware IDs from the property drop down, you should see your HArdware ID string displayed. Look for the part that says DEV_####. If that #### is 5045, then you have a Venice codec, and hopefully one of the 4 drivers I've posted will work for you. If that #### is 5047, then you have a Waikiki codec, and HP hasn't posted any drivers for those yet.

2/2 Update #2: BIOS Updates.

There are a number of BIOS Updates available for most notebooks that are recommended for Vista. These have been posted on HP's site, but I figured I would post the direct links for those who want them. If you plan to use the HP Vista Upgrade Utility you can skip the BIOS update as the utility should do it for you. For most everyone else, the BIOS update is highly recommended. These can all be installed from XP or Vista (32-bit or 64-bit).

HP dv2000t and Compaq v3000t series F.23 BIOS here
HP dv2000z and Compaq v3000z series F.22 BIOS here
HP dv5000t and Compaq v5000t series F.22A BIOS here
HP dv5000z and Compag v5000z series F.53 BIOS here
HP dv6000t and Compaq v6000t series F.15 BIOS here
HP dv6000z and Compaq v6000z series F.27 BIOS here
HP dv8000t series F.22A BIOS here
HP dv8000z series F.53 BIOS here
HP dv9000t series F.15 BIOS here
HP dv9000z series F.27 BIOS here

These are the main models of HP and Compaq consumer notebooks and should be the BIOS that most people need. If you have a business system, or another model, check HP's website to see if a new BIOS is available. The models that end in t are Intel processor systems, and those with AMD processors end in z. Also, I used the generic model numbers above, if your machine is a HP dv2120us, you actually have a dv2000 series, and since you have an AMD processor, you want the dv2000z series BIOS update.

Update 2/6: More Audio and chipset drivers

A few new drivers today.

Conexant AC-Link Audio (supposedly for dv5000 and dv8000 series -- only 32-bit Vista is supported) -- here
Conexant HD audio #5 (another Venice version -- supposedly for dv6000 and dv9000 series) -- here
Nvidia Chipset driver: here

Alright a couple more that have been posted before, but now direct from HP:

HP Active Support Library: here
HP Help and Support (for Windows 32-bit): here

For Video drivers:

HP keeps posting (and reposting, and reposting) video drivers for various Nvidia chips and the Intel GMA950. So far these drivers haven't ever been any newer than the ones on Windows Update so I've mostly skipped posting them. If you run an Intel GMA950 graphics chip, I would just get any driver update from Windows Update. If you run on an Nvidia chip, either use Windows Update or get a newer driver from www.laptopvideo2go.com . Click on forums, then select the 100 series for the latest Vista drivers. I use the 100.54 drivers, and I've heard the 100.59 drivers work fine as well -- in fact, aside from an update for 8800 series graphics cards I believe they are the exact same driver. So select the driver you want then download the driver, expand it to a directory of your choice, and then download the modded inf file to get the driver to recognize your notebook chip and place it in the same directory as you extracted the installation files to. You can then either use Windows Driver Update (recommended) or in most cases just run the Setup file to update your drivers to ones newer than HP is offering. Nvidia is way behind in getting good Vista drivers out, and each new release gets them a little closer, so I would use the newer ones laptopvideo2go offers as opposed to any HP has posted at this point.

Update 2/7: Just a minor update today

Not much posted today, but there's:

HP Wireless Assistant (this is a new version) -- here
HP Synaptics Touchpad Driver -- here
HP Help and Support (for Vista x64) -- here

Update 2/9: Official Graphics drivers and more

Some people have mentioned that they want the official Nvidia drivers that HP is providing so here goes. These aren't the latest drivers from Nvidia but they're officially supported by HP:

GeForce Go 6150 -- here
GeForce Go 7200 -- here
GeForce Go 7400 and 7600 -- here

A few other bits today:

Intel inf update (chipset driver) for all Intel-based notebooks -- here
Realtek NIC driver (for dv5000 and dv8000 series) -- here
Conexant HD Audio "Waikiki" driver for HP dv1000 and Compaq v2000 series (this is an OLD XP driver that HP apparently thinks is good enough to post for Vista -- will only work on 32-bit Vista) -- here

As a side note, this is not the same "Waikiki" driver as the one needed by dv2000t owners, though it might install under 32-bit Vista for those who want to give it a shot. No word yet on when to expect a proper driver for those systems.


Update 2/20: It's been awhile

Lots of drama lately with HP and Vista (especially the dv2000t audio driver issue) but not much in the way of downloads. One big thing is that most all of these drivers are now available directly from the HP support site for the respective notebooks they apply to. But they're still behind, and this thread still seems like a valuable tool, so I'll post the new items that have shown up. Also, I have been watching the HP ftp site for new uplaods, and will continue to do so for awhile until the driver uplaods completely dry up.

Dv2000t "Waikiki" driver for XP: here -- this driver will install on Vista-32 only and provides basic audio support, though there are still some very real issues. Use at your own risk.

Intel Pro Wireless Drivers 6.00D -- here -- a minor update for those with Intel Wireless Chipsets (old version was 6.00C)

And last, but definitely not least, new member bigyoda1281 has ripped the webcam driver for those with dv6000 and dv9000 systems that weren't supported by the earlier driver in this thread. You can download the driver at http://www.mediafire.com/?bzvqioejnd0. Be warned, though, that though the driver is for the correct device, it doesn't appear to be working for that member. Please try it out, and post your results in this thread. Hopefully, someone will be able to get this working and post directions if needed.

Update 2/21: Official webcam drivers!

Alright, through some interesting trickery, many of us have gotten our webcams working in Vista, but today HP posted to its FTP server an all new driver that appears to be an update for all their webcam models.

Grab the driver here -- then run THAT file to start a rather lengthy installation that will do some kind of firmware update, and update a number of drivers. Do NOT try to extract the installation files and install manually, as there are several steps to this installation process.

It appears that this driver updates the webcam driver for ALL recent Pavilion and Presario models, including ones that shipped with Vista. Give it a shot, and if you have an issue, post it here.

fbmg have you tried the driver since the webcam was flashed that Yoda uploaded? Worth a shot. Should work a treat.

HP Vista driver downloads

hey guys, im new to the forum, but i have the dv6000t and i have the preinstalled vista, and also have the driver in swsetup for the webcam...my problem is that it's shown in device mangr and has no problems, but in quickplay i can only get the camera to show a picture immediately after the driver's installation. the camera will fail as soon as a program like trillian tries to establish a connection with it, and then im not able to view video from the camera even in quickplay...so i must again uninstall it and reinstall it to use it for 2min...it's very unstable this driver that came wtih teh preinstalled vista. im in the process of downloading the torrent with the new driver in it, but am i understanding correctly that if i have the device id as being: USB\VID_0C45&PID_62C0&REV_0210&MI_00
USB\VID_0C45&PID_62C0&MI_00
i am using the wrong driver?? is the driver in jadedraverla's torrent newer than what i have and will it have a diff. device ID?

thanx for the help.

I am running vista ultimate 64 and the update worked great for me no unknown device :-). I just let the thing extract and run right off the hp site nothing special. Thanks for everyones help with this.

bigyoda1281

HP Vista driver downloads

byrds 6 -- I believe the new driver's main .exe is for Vista-32 only, but the extracted files include Vista-64 drivers as well. It's just a more complicated installation process, as you need to run the firmware update (if applicable) manually, and install the driver yourself.

Also, it seems that it is really designed for dv6000 and dv9000 owners, so those with other machines that already have a working driver may not want to bother. It DID update something (or said it did) on my dv2000t, but it looks to still be using the same driver I was using before.

JadedRaverLA

Oh if the new driver was for all versions it would be wonderful. Sadly that driver is listed as only being for the 32bit version of Vista.

I have a dv6018ea, running Vista Business 32-bit, and I've been installing all the latest available HP driver updates, but still can't get the integrated webcam to work well. I downloaded the latest drivers posted in the first thread, and when the program is downloaded and runs, it brings up a cmd window with the text

c: <...> Local\temp > WoInst /r "driver\st50220.inf" "USB\VID_0c45&PID_62c0&MI_00" "USB\VID_0c45&PID_62c0" "USB\ROOT_HUB20"

and then a strange window comes up with the header "Sonix ST50220 11251.0" (guess that's the webcam model), with 6 buttons that say only "Go!", "Erase", "Check", "Prog", "Verify" and "Result". None of them seem to do anything, except pressing "Go!", which, after a long pause, gives the notice "Initialize camera failed!" and the program usually hangs there. Task Manager calls this program the "USB BridgBurnerAp MFC".

Checking on Device Manager after rebooting gives "HP Pavilion Webcam" under Imaging Devices. Its Hardware ID is:

USB\VID_0C45&PID_62C0&REV_0210&MI_00
USB\VID_0C45&PID_62C0&MI_00

I have to say that at one point it did work very briefly with MSN, but no usual icon in My Computer or any link to it in the start menu, only Uninstall.

I have tried the earlier drivers too, to no avail. BIOS is the latest version as far as I can tell. Checking under c:\swsetup\SP34746\WCAMR I can see some files, including one called "PID1810_001_UVC.SRM" (isn't that the right driver that has been mentioned on this thread?), and a few apps such as "DPInst, SROMwriter" and "SW32". These seem to be firmware uploaders that fail when run. I think a lot of these files are Ricoh, which is altogether the wrong webcam model?

Thanks very much for all your help,

LKP
I am in this exact same situation. My webcam worked for a while with MSN when I got the laptop two weeks ago but no more. It does work with the muvee producer thing that comes pre-installed with the laptop (mine is a dv9201ca)

I was, however, able to install the updates after a frustrating while getting that "Initialize camera failed!" error. In my case all I had to do was update the BIOS and then run the firmware/drivers update linked on the first page. Unfortunately, even after the update the webcam will not work with MSN, whenever I go to webcam settings MSN shuts down.

HP Vista driver downloads

Hey, this was addressed earlier in this thread, but it didn't solve my problem.

I'm working on a dv6226us laptop for a guy. It had preloaded Vista, and he wanted Vista wiped off for XP Home. So I have XP home loaded, and almost everything is fine. There are a couple drivers I cant find though.

"PCI Device" - probably the modem
"Unknown Device" - unsure

Also, I haven't installed audio drivers yet. The Conexant HD Audio drivers for XP found on the page for the dv6000z (as recommended earlier in this thread) do not work. It says it cannot find the device. The nVidia chipset found there is also incorrect. I found and downloaded the Intel 945GM Express chipset from intel, which is what I found through other searches as the correct chipset.

Help?

Use Everest to identify the device driver that you need.

I bought a DV6275US with vista on it and what a pita it was with vista and poor power management etc etc..........ported it back to XP and Everest helped me find the right drivers from both HP and OEM manufacture........

Best Tool in the world to figure out what the unknown devices are

Could you guy’s give me idea what is the name of another GPU that same with gforce go7200? Until now I’m using bios version 5.72.22.43.58 and driver version 7.15.10.9815 date 2/27/2007. Please help me becouse I just only have 2.7 for 3D business and gaming graphic performace in the vista experiance rating.

It doesn't really matter if you can't find exactly your card name on the list. I've got nVidia GeForce Go 7600, went to their site http://www.nvidia.com/content/drivers/drivers.asp and just clicked on the driver for the GeForce 7 series. The latest driver is 7.15.11.5824 (April 2007). It worked just fine on my GPU and I can't see any reason why it shouldn't work with yours (since you also have a 7 series).

The problem is that nVidia treats the Go 7200 as if it never existed (lack of specific drivers) and does not include it's device info in the more up-to-date INF files needed for installing the latest drivers. To get around this places like laptopvideo2go.com post hacked INF files to force a driver install on unsupported hardware like the Go 7200.

Personally, I have never seen a decent driver for Go 7200 in my DV2100T. Some are better than others but they all eventually crash my system or fail and recover. The latest driver on HP's web site is so bad that I cannot even boot my system most of the time with it installed. The latest WCL driver from NVIDIA's web site will not install for the Go 7200 as-is. This brings us to http://www.laptopvideo2go.com. They have hacked INFs and the drivers for them in the same place. However, I find that these drivers are only slightly better.

I am currently using the latest from there which is 162.15 but I can't vouch for it's stability. Before this I was using 158.18 which wasn't too bad.

Sorry, I didn't know that the nVidia drivers don't work on Go 7200. That's really odd though, because I had a problem with some OpenGL games that didn't run normally on an external monitor, so I installed the drivers for the 7 series from nVidia's web site and my problem was resolved. My GPU is GeForce Go 7600. Weird that they don't work for 7200... Anyway, I agree that nVidia should provide better support for its own video cards.

In your system drive, there's a folder called SWSETUP. Thats the folder that has all the drivers and bloatware installs that came orginally with your system. Save that folder before you do any formatting. Burn it to DVD or put it on an external drive.

I have nVidia GeForce 6150. Looking for the advanced features and better driver, I downloaded the modded inf's and installer for Forceware 158.28 from www.laptopvideo2go.com . I really like the much more extensive nVidia control panel; however, I realized that the keyboard buttons for backlight brightness would not work on the modded driver; they did work on the official HP release of 158.24. Is there a way to manually enable the backlight option on the 158.28, or am I stuck with the much less powerful HP drivers? Or conversely, is there a way to enable the hidden control panel features in the HP drivers?

Thanks

I don't know about the laptopvideo2go's mods, but I downloaded a modified NVIDIA driver at tweaks-r-us for my 7400. While I enjoyed messing around with the complete control panel and my keyboard buttons for brightness did work, I ended up going back to the HP driver because I noticed my screen saver kind of "hesitated" with the tweak-r-us.

jaded--thankyou very much, i'll be waiting for it, so i could get better quality and performance for my notebook.

I don't know if the HP's site is down or not, but the problem is with my connection, i already ask administrator here and he explain that there is problem with the ftp (or maybe here are not allowed to), and most of my friend also couldn't download from ftp.

I have tried to download from *ww.mediafire.com, and it works fine

thankyou

mypavilion (and anyone else looking for an all-in-one driver pack for dv2000t or v3000 machines) -- here you go.

First off, the links:

Part 1
Part 2
Part 3

You'll need all three files (around 200 MB total), which, when extracted create a "HP Vista Driver" directory that includes,

HP Active Support Library 1.0m -- sp34016
HP Bluetooth 6.0C -- sp34275
HP Help and Support (x64) -- sp34413
HP Help and Support (x86) -- sp34411
HP Quicklaunch Buttons 6.10C -- sp34236
HP Ricoh Card Reader -- sp34373
HP Synaptics Touchpad Driver -- sp35444
HP Update -- sp34261
HP Venice HD Audio Driver 4.8 -- sp34387
HP Waikiki HD Audio Driver 3.25 XP -- sp33543
HP Waikiki HD Audio Driver 3.38 beta -- not yet publicly released
HP Webcam -- sp34746
HP Wireless Assistant -- sp34510
Intel 945GM Graphics -- sp34488 (x86) and sp34389 (x64)
Intel ProWireless 6.00D -- sp34804
Nvidia GeForce Go 7200 -- sp34390



Setup instructions:
I always extract the contents of the HP-provided sp#####.exe files to their own subdirectory. That is how this download will expand. For most drivers the setup.exe file is the file that launhes the installer. Their are a couple of exceptions, however:

1) HP Webcam driver -- is not a standard compressed archive, so the original so34746.exe file is used.
2) HP Ricoh Card Reader driver -- launch the DPInst.exe file from within either the x86 or x64 subdirecory to install.


HD Audio Note:

There are three HD audio drivers included. They are:

HP Venice HD audio driver 4.8 -- for the newest dv2200t series that shipped with Vista
HP Waikiki HD Audio Driver 3.25 XP -- "Workaround" XP driver for dv2000t and dv2100t series machines (32-bit Vista only)
HP Waikiki HD Audio Driver 3.38 beta -- latest beta driver for dv2000t and dv2100t series machines, provided by Anna from HP Total Care -- not a public release, and likely not officially supported by HP yet

Use whichever driver you prefer that works with your machine.


Nvidia driver note:

The Nvidia driver is an old one, but its the newest one provided by HP for this model. Installing it installs the Nvidia Control Panel which is useful, and then an updated driver can be grabbed from Windows Update. Alternatively you can use a modded Nvidia driver from www.laptopvideo2go.com, which are even newer and also contain the control panel. I recommend the 101.70 driver from there.


Quickplay:

Quickplay 3.0 is not included as I uploaded it seperately awhile ago. If you need it grab it here

so here is my update as of far and my summary of HP support

THEY SUCK!

i was suppose to get a call back this tuesday from the case manager telling me an updated ETA and giving me other options. i received no calls, and called on tuesday, wednesday, thursday, and oh friday (today). everyday they "escalate my case" and tell me a case manager will call me back in 24-48 hrs. well today i really went off on the guy and told him they are pissing me off and i demanded a new laptop and told him the manager better call me back soon.

i am a college student and really need the laptop to get my school work done. i didnt spend $1400 to have my laptop missing for 4 weeks (as of now) and suppose to get back sometime in JUNE!

lets see what happens now >

s6arface

HP Vista driver downloads

so after a frustrating day, i am happy now. i ended up calling Corporate HP and they got me in touch my case manager. he said he was sorry he didnt call me back because this week was very hectic and busy.

basically, he ordered me a new laptop and upgraded everything to the fullest. he upgraded my cpu from the 1.83 ghz core 2 duo to the 2ghz core 2 duo. he upgraded my HD from 120 to 160gb. also he upgraded the video card, and sent me 2 extra 12 cell batteries. also, he sent me a couple of headphones just cuz and a recovery cd (all of these things i didnt have orignally).

i should be getting it in 7-14 weeks (its being built in china just like my orignal one was). the upgrades were about $300 more than i paid, so i think the wait was well worth it now!

s6arface

HP Vista driver downloads

s6arface -- not too bad in the end. I'd be happy enough with a new machine and some extra goodies.

It would just be nice if they you know... made some effort to communicate with customers. I don't get why that's so hard for them. It's ALWAYS a hectic week, and they almost never get back with anyone. You have to call and plead, and hope that you really do have a case manager, etc.

s6arface: I had the exact same problem with HP, my dv5000t went missing for 6 weeks before they shipped me an upgraded dv6000t. Unfortunately, my dv5000t was already near top of the line, so I got an HDD upgrade and bluetooth and took a slight processor downgrade (Core duo 2.16Ghz to Core 2 Duo 2.0 Ghz).

huh... really 14 weeks? Built in China and slowly shipped around the world in a container ship or not, that's a long time to wait to get a replacement notebook. Surely HP could (and should) do better than that, even though they're already doing a lot by offering you a higher spec machine with lots of extras.

Gentleman. I have another problem. I rely on your wisdom and experience since you've helped me so much in the past. Again my specs: i'm running a dv9000t vista ultimate. All drivers are working ok (except for a few kinks here and there; but nothing huge). But now i'm going through 2 problems.

1.- I just added a 2nd hdd. ordered directly from HP, model number is identical to my primary (except this one is the 5400 rpm, instead of the 7200 i ordered as primary) .but vista will ask for drivers and it will not find any. I'm going crazy trying to figure this out.

2.- If i plug in my sony cybershot camera (dsc-h2) it cannot drive the driver for the sony DSC. Everywhere i read, it states that it should work naitively. and one site that provides instructinos for vista 64, i tried them, but they did not work. any ideas would be great. (the reason for wanting this is becuase my internal reader reads the SD cards perfectly, but it asks for a driver for the memory stick, and i installed the ricoh driver but still does not work)...

any help .. i would really appreciate it.

I've got a HP DV6190EU which had XP Media Centre edition on it, and I've just upgraded to Vista Home Premium using the express upgrade kit, and have the same problem with the built-in webcam. The webcam used to work fine in XP.

I installed the drivers from the HP Upgrade disc as advised by the upgrade guide, and it seemed to work, but the next time I used the laptop Vista said it was installing drivers for an unknown device, and it became quite obvious this was the webcam.

Sometimes I can get the drivers to install using the SP34746 from HP's site, and the webcam will work after reboots and everything... but then if I switch the laptop off and come back at a later stage the webcam won't work again.

I've just tried uninstalling the HP Pavilion Webcam and removing drivers from within the device manager as suggested earlier in this topic, rebooted and Vista found the hardware and installed a USB Imaging Device, which was also listed in the QuickPlay program, but the camera wouldn't work. Then I ran the Setup program from within the SP34746 folder in SWSetup and it brings up the dos window, shortly followed by an alert box saying "Run-time error '75': Path/File access error". The command window then says "access denied" and the Vista UAC alert comes up prompting me to allow/disallow the program to run. Clicking allow simply ends the Setup program.

However this time it has made the webcam show as HP Pavilion Webcam in the Device Manager, and going back in to QuickPlay I can get the webcam to work.

Hardware ID's in Device Manager are:

USB\VID_05CA&PID_1810&REV_0100&MI_00
USB\VID_05CA&PID_1810&MI_00

At least after reading this lengthy topic I know I'm not the only one with this problem, so hopefully HP will be all the more interested in finding a solution if they don't already know of one.

my built in webcam for my hp pavilion dv6245us laptop isnt working properly. every time i record a video clip the clip plays twice as fast as normal and the sound stays the same. I've tried 3 softwares and its all been the same. is there a driver i can download or is there something i can do?

munkey26

HP Vista driver downloads

i too have the same problem. Model dv6244us. After recording a video clip with the built in hp pavilion webcam, the playback is extremely fast and unsynched with the audio. In other words, a 20 second recording will play back in 4 seconds. This is crazy insane. Anyone else have this problem? So far, it looks like munkey26 and I are alone.

Good Afternoon Fellow Posters...

I have read scanned over this thread and others, but I can't find the answer to my question per se. I have an HP dv9033cl that I purchased as a refurb from Costco. Got a good deal...sort of. Anyway, I used the HP Vista upgrade utility to put Vista Ultimate on my machine and it went pretty smoothly all things considered. During the install it took all of the pre-installed files and compiled them in to one file labeled "Windows.old". Has anyone been able to use any of this legacy software and get it to set-up, install and run using Vista? I'm a nubie at this so please forgive me if it is covered somewhere else and I didn't find it.

Thanks, in advance for the assistance.

I've just had an email reply from HP, saying that my DV6190EU needs to be picked up for them to service and will take 8 to 10 business days.

Has anyone else been told/asked to return their laptop so as HP can service it to solve the built-in webcam issue, and if so did the problem get solved?

Im pretty sure its just the drivers kicking in. Hopefully they will invent better drivers in the future but my desktop with XP does that all the time so it doesn't bug me.

What shall i do? Shall i wait untill HP brings new driver for HP dv1000 series, shall just give up-get rid of Vista. I like it so much.
Please HELP

touringman

HP Vista driver downloads

Check your audio device to see if it is a Conexant Waikiki chipset. If it is, you are out of luck, HP is not doing too much at this point to supply the proper driver to Vista unless Anna from the other thread says otherwise.

HP knows that the Conexant chipset does not work properly in the default Microsoft HD Audio Device Driver, but they aren't doing anything to amend the problem. If you file a BBB complaint, HP won't do anything about it either.

Don't buy HP next time.

ThunderRiver

HP Vista driver downloads

touringman -- Assuming it's a Conexant audio codec, for now all you can do is try the XP driver for your machine. It will likely work, though it isn't an ideal solution.

I might have missed some drivers you need (as I was more focused on the current models), so it's worth checking HP's site to see if they have anything posted. Otherwise, you're likely going to need to use either Microsoft's drivers included with the OS or the older XP drivers for many things.
I think i have a newer model, I bought it in 2006 around the last part of the year

One thing I can tell you is that you need to search HP for the dv6000t CTO drivers, not the 6000z drivers if it's an Intel chipset. All the drivers you need should be there. The one thing that might not be is the Microsoft UAA driver you'll need to install before you can install the audio and modem drivers. You can grab that from ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp33501-34000/sp33566.exe . Let us know if that helps.




There are a few potential problems, so I want to applogize if it sounds like I'm telling you things that you obviosuly knew or already tried.

1. Make sure you've downloaded and installed the latest BIOS.

2. Make sure you've installed the Quickplay buttons driver 6.10B or 6.10C . If these drivers were already installed, you should reinstall after updating the BIOS.

3. Install Quickplay 3.0 from the link (if you want to use it).

4. The Quickplay buttons should function from within the Quickplay application, Windows Media Player, and Apple's iTunes. I'm not sure about other apps. Make sure the app you want to control is the active application (in the foreground), otherwise the buttons will do nothing.

Also, there is no longer a control panel applet to reassign the buttons like there was in XP, so you're left with the default configuration.

If you're still having problems, uninstall the drivers from within device manager. Reboot, and then reinstall. If still no go, post back with what driver version you are using (both for the Quickplay buttons and for your audio device since you're on a dv2000 series), and whether any of the buttons function (ie. sound controls work, but not player controls, or vise versa).




Actually, I just got a response to my BBB complaint. You can read a much longer post about it at http://forum.notebookreview.com/show...3&postcount=30 . In short, they ignored everything I said, and just posted a link to the "Venice" driver -- and it took them three weeks to give that response. I'm astounded at their incompetence, and it really stopped being funny months ago. I responded giving every piece of information anyone with half a brain would need to understand that the driver they linked to would not work on my system, so I'll see if the BBB sends it back to them. Maybe in another month, I'll get another response -- probably telling me to use the XP driver.

Hi, tks for yor reply.

I did what u mencioned before and tried again and the only button that don't work is: On/Off Sound. Either in QuickPlay and other apps either in the desktop envirement.

Best regards,

I don't know what I would have done with my Vista upgrade install without you! Thanks Jadedraver for filing a complaint to BBB - I have signed your petition!

But I have looked through all the posts and don't see anything new about the microphone issue. I have resolved all my other problems (webcam , video, sound works etc.) but am not able to record sound or use Skype. Any ideas when a driver might be coming to resolved this? Or are there any others fixes that have worked?

Thanks so much!

DV2000t, need Waikiki driver
Assuming you're using the XP Waikiki driver in Vista, the microphone should work, but it isn't selected by default when you installed the driver.

You'll need to go into Control Panel, Sound, Recording tab. After installing the XP driver, the "Sum" device would be selected by default. You'll need to select the "Microphone" device and click the "Set Default" button, setting the Microphone as the default device. Once you do that, you should start to see the level meter respond as it picks up sound. Once that's done, you're all set.

i have a dv6095ea, and im running windows vista home premium, i did all the latest driver updates quickplay 3 and all, and more or less it workds fine.But periodically the cam refuses to work, it did it a few times, i dont think iv changed anything. To get it to workagain i have to uninstall then re install the driver .I did it like 3 times so i made a system restore point to a point where it was fine.Im beginning to suspect skype of grabing the camera and not releasing it> I use skype but not for cam, also msn messenger and camfrog.If anyone has had a similar problem id be interested to hear,

also there was a post b4 about the mik,l the mike on mine is working ,but its too quiet and noisy to be any use, i turned it up all the way,but its really a waste f time as no one can hear what u say unless u shout, so im back to using my headset

Thanks so much, Dynamius!!!! My microphone actually works now, though seems a little faint - but hey, I'm happy with anything at this point. I had just assumed that the Sum device was the one I should be using. Now I can limp along until the real driver comes out.

You'll need to go into Control Panel, Sound, Recording tab. After installing the XP driver, the "Sum" device would be selected by default.

I have an answer for the webcam problem but unfortunately only half of one.

I am new to the forums so sorry if i am speaking out of turn. I have the webcam driver pulled directly off of a new machine with device id

USB\VID_05CA&PID_1870&REV_0100

however when i install it....it says that the device is installed and ready to go yet the device remains unknown in device manager.

The location listed for the device is

Port_#0004.Hub_#0002

If anyone would like a copy of the driver email me and i will be glad to give it to you however it seems like it is not the complete fix unless someone knows what step i might be missing.

I have the chipset drivers installed etc.

btw my machine is a dv9000z series.

HPFan - No, the HD Audio bus-system driver (or whatever it was called) is built-in to Vista, so you don't need that part of the driver -- just the Conexant HD audio driver.

hey I have a problem with my card reader. It doesnt work!! I cant read any card and the driver that you posted doesnt seem to work either. Help Help! Thanks.

mystique lady

Mystique Lady -- lets see what we can do... which type of card are you trying to read? SD card, XD, MS, or MMC? The SD card reader is supported natively by Windows, and there is no specific driver you need. The others require a driver, and it seems like the one I posted has worked for most people. Try using a program like WinRAR to extract the sp34373.exe file you downloaded. Then navigate to the x86 folder and run DpInst.exe . Say yes to any questions about installing this driver, etc. and it should install fine. I suppose its possible that there are other card readers out there, in which case the driver won't work, but I haven't run across any yet. Let us know how it goes.

Jadedraverla,
I've attached a screenshot of my device manager for your reference, and I just did what you suggested me to do, still no luck yet. I am trying to get MS reader to work. help help, thanks!

mystique lady

HP Vista driver downloads

Mystique Lady -- Do me a favor, and find out what the Device_ID is for your MS Card reader. Click properties on the device in device manager, then goto details, and finally Hardware IDs. List the first one. For example, mine is: PCVEN_1180&DEV_0592&SUBSYS_30B2103C&REV_0A . If your is different then it means you may need a different driver. I might be able to find it for you, but I'll need the ID for your machine. If it's the same, then there's something wrong, and the driver should install.

Let me know.

JadedRaverLA

HP Vista driver downloads

Jadedraverla,
I've attached 2 more screenshots. The first one is for MS properties which unfortunately didn't show anything like yours, and the second one is for some unknown devices that didnt fully installed for some reason. Please refer to my previous screenie, you will see what I am taking about. Can you please take a look at them and tell me what they are? why does it pop up as unknown devices? Thanks!

The fact that all the HP systems shipping with Vista are using the "Venice" codec instead of the "Waikiki" one used on some models previously has me worried they aren't going to even bother writing working drivers for those of us with that device. Hopefully HP will get on them, as they sold the systems as Vista capable and are providing Express Upgrades on them.

By the way, if you're using 32-bit Vista, you can try using your old XP drivers for the audio device and see if those work.
the old XP drivers for conextant works fine but it has a bug that when u start up there is a lagg because the windows is not ready for use. about 15 sec lagg before u can start using windows. thats why we need the new driver.
when we uninstall the driver the lagg went away. but sound quality suck

thank you in advance!
Sorry, I missded this yeasterday when I was responding. A few questions... What model is your notebook? Are you on Vista-32 or Vista-64? What type of card are you trying to use (SC, MMC, MS, XD)? What is the hardware id above for... one of the card reader slots... or is that for the card itself that shows up once it's inserted?

Post back and I think we can help.

Jcoeny -- As far as I know, no Vista systems have the control panel for the Quicklaunch buttons any more. One of the many annoyances with HP and Vista.
