    Before you install Audio driver, you need to install Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) Bus Driver for High Definition Audio. You can download it from the following URL:




    Installation Instructions


    1. Download the file to a directory on your hard drive.
    2. Execute the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions.


    After this, download and install Audio driver from the below URL:


    Conexant High Definition Audio Driver




    I hope this works.

    Hi, Tipkid.


    I bought this notebook too (dv6226us).

    I'm trying to install Windows XP, but, I am not capable to do this...

    It's because, at the installation, the XP don't recognizes the SATA hard disk.

    Then, I press F6 and It asks for a floopy drive.... but the notebook don't has a floppy drive...


    How did you do it??? Can you help me with the XP installation, PLEASE?


    (obs: Did you find all the drivers for xp?)


    Thank you, so much!

    Hi Daniel,


    To fix this issue you need to follow these steps :



    1. Turn on the computer.

    2. Keep tapping the F10 key when the HP logo appears. This will take you to BIOS Setup Utility.

    3. Click on System Configuration tab

    4. Under that select SATA Native support [ disable ]

    5. Press F10 to "Save and Exit" the BIOS.

    6. Click on Ok/Yes to confirm the changes.

    7. Restart the computer.


    Insert the Windows XP CD and restart the notebook. This should detect the hard drive and install Windows XP.
