I have a HP Pavilion dv6707us Entertainment Notebook PC. I was using Home Premium 32 bit Vista but I did a clean installation with Home Premium 64 Vista. I downloaded and installed all the drivers from HP’s site for 64 Vista. After clean installation I am facing the following problems. 1.     Realtek HD Audio Manager is missing from Device Manager. 2.     Advanced tab is missing from BIOS. 3.     CD/DVD drive is not reading media. Ø   Installed the latest Realtek driver. Its showing in control panel. But not showing in device manager. When I checked in Device Manager sound, video and game controllers only conexant audio is there realtek is missing from there. Ø   Now I am unable to use my external mic and internal mic volume is very low. Ø  Looked into few forums there I found I need to enable my on board audio in BIOS but when I checked into my BIOS there is no ADVANCED TAB . My system details are :-

Did you allow HP to scan for missing drivers?

If your BIOS is missing a routine HP section...I'd start thinking "CMOS/RTC battery".

The settings for the BIOS...are retained in a chip...from boot to boot.

 

When those setttings change (seemingly) on their own...or the BIOS does not reflect what it should...a failing CMOS battery is often the cause.

 

Hence my comment about replacing the CMOS battery.
