Where can I find a working audio drive for my HP dv5000 running Windows 7?

eviltwin September 1, 2012

Have been to the manufacturer site for installed chipset, ATI.

Device driver identifies it as an ATI Integrated Digital Audio Driver date; 09/13/06 version 6.1.4242.1 not digitally signed.

Under driver files however there shows a certificate icon and C:\Windows\sys32\drivers\ktshunk.sys after that.

Info box shows Provider Microsoft Corportation.

File version 6.1.7600 16385 (win 7_rtm 090713-1255 Copyright Microsoft Corporation All rights reserved. Digital Signer Microsoft Windows

This is all on an HP dv5000 that was running Windows XP but is now running Windows 7. If anyone knows the right driver please tell me.

    Try this link - http://www8.hp.com/us/en/support-drivers.html

    As you can see there are quite a few models click on yours then on the Let HP Help You click Check Now and it will scan your laptop for missing or out of date drivers hope this solves it for you.

    As Bruce explains DV5000 is not enough info we need the full model or use the link that Bruce gives and select your model then OS then Audio.

    The best way I've found out there, and still use myself is: ParetoLogic PC Health Advisor!
    It has a really good scanning quality for drivers that needs updates!
    (Sometime the newest version doesn't have this option.. So if it doesn't have it, then try to install an older version!)

    it should be available on HP site for ur model if that model supports Windows7.
    else u would have to go for a best match driver from manufacturer - which may not be digitally signed.

    It's tough to give you a definitive answer without the EXACT model number of your machine since there are 69 submodels. Go here [Broken Link Removed] and expand the section that applies to you. Find and click your EXACT model number in the list. Select 'Software & Drivers' on the next page. For the operating system, if it doesn't have an entry for Windows 7, select Windows Vista. They both use the same driver model so drivers written for Vista should work flawlessly with Windows 7 as well. In the results page, open the Audio section and click the link to download the driver.
