ok, I am working on a newish HP, running Win XP. I just installed the OS, and everything works perfectly. The audio works great too,...too,...too well. I've got speakers plugged into the back, and headphones that can plug into them. The headphones work, and cancel the external speakers like they should. The external speakers, however, do not cancel the internal ones, and neither do the headphones. The internals, are eternal....It's driving me insane.
I have had this issue before, about a year ago. fifteen minutes on google, and I found the solution, which was a simple one...just not one I can remember. The solution was to reinstall the audio driver....just not THE audio driver. I had to download an obsolete one because for some reason it fixed the issue. I THINK it was HP, but I cannot remember exactly.
Anyway, I've spent the past few hours searching google with every combination of words I can think of, and have not found that same answer, just about a hundred people posting one of about 3 answers, none of which apply to me, and one is just flat out wrong.
Can someone please help me find this driver? I am pretty sure it's an HP, I know it's audio, and I know it's old, if not obsolete. This worked absolutely perfect the first time I had to do it....would have been a good idea to save the driver, don't you think?
