I would try the original driver first:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwar...;product=453539
Then the update:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwar...;product=453539

Did you follow these instructions to install the driver?

Installation Instructions
1. Download the driver package.
2. Double-click on the icon for the driver package downloaded in step 1, and then click NEXT.
3. Accept the terms in the HP license agreement, and then click NEXT.

If your PC uses a Realtek High Definition audio solution, use steps 4 and 5 to complete the update, otherwise skip to step 6 and continue with the remaining steps.

4. Click NEXT at the Realtek High Definition Audio Driver Setup window and wait for the update to complete. This may take a few minutes.
5. Click FINISH at the Realtek High Definition Audio Driver Setup window to restart the PC.

6. Click OK to continue. The original drivers are now stored in the C:\HP\Drivers\Audio folder.
7. If Device Manager does not start automatically, use the following steps. Otherwise go to step 8:

a. Click Start.

b. Right-click My Computer, and then select Properties.

c. Click the Hardware tab, and then click the Device Manager button.

8. Click the + (plus) sign next to "Sound, video and game controllers" or "Other devices".
9. Right-click the device you want to update, and then select Update Driver.
10. Click NEXT to install the software automatically
11. Click FINISHED to complete the installation.

Yep of course they are called Audio Codecs, Legacy Audio Drivers, Legacy Video Capture Devices, Media Control Devices and Video Codecs. Also i'm not sure if this would help but when i look in system devices and look at system speaker it says i have no drivers installed for it

Audio Codecs, Legacy Audio Drivers are what you should be concerned with

Speakers do not need drivers. They are plug and play
The system speaker is what you hear for the different Windows sounds and BIOS beeps
Mine doesn't have any drivers either

Look in your BIOS and check that onboard sound is enabled


Try this

1. Click Start and then Run.
2. Type dxdiag in the box and click Ok. Then, please click Yes.
3. This will open the DirectX Diagnostic Tool window.
4. Click Music tab and then click TestDirectMusic and then you should hear a music coming from the system. Click Ok to discontinue the music.
5. Click Sound tab and then click TestDirectSound and then click Yes and now you should hear a sound coming from the computer.
