Re: Downgrading dv4 1241tx to windows xp

What problem are you having? Conexant shows as installed.Is it not working_or perhaps it works but stops after restarting notebook?


Another IDT to try:

Re: Downgrading dv4 1241tx to windows xp

It seems everything is OK with the drivers.
The only problem is when you shutdown or restart there is no audio...

is that the case

To solve this install audio hotfix which re-installes the audio eveytime you reboot..
