    Conexant Audio Drivers in Windows update 2nd appearance


    There was an update with Conexant in the title after 1803 had been installed. After that install session a message appeared relaying that MS Windows 10 decided that this particular addition was not good for the Acer V5-551 (orig Win8.1) laptop so it was not installed. BUT there was no sound!
    Searching this forum I found a registry edit that worked and sound returned on external speakers.
    Now there is another Conexant file in the Update folder labelled 'waiting to be installed'
    There is not an indication that this is a file that was adjusted or if it the same file presented previously.
    Its now an old laptop which has the sole purpose of being the storage and playback of mpg4 slideshows presented using an Epson projector and external speakers. There has not been an ongoing Conexant update or presence so I don't know why it appeared after 1803 became the version.
    Since realtek drivers are in the laptop I wondered about uninstalling anything to do with this Conexant but that was before Win10 update delivered another Conexant file.
    So now I don't know whether to allow it to install or if there is a way it can be refused.

    :)

  2. Conexant SmartAudio HD Driver's Update

    Hi marbarak.

    Not really a solution since you can't deactivate updates anymore. At least it's not possible on Win 10 pro. Even in the Device installation settings, it doesn't matter if you tick the case for never updating drivers, windows 10 still downloads and installs
    the Conexant driver.

    I'm testing a fix right now but would like to try it for some days before claiming it's definitely working. In the device settings under Audio Video controler, you do a right click on the Conexant driver and click update. Then instead of installing automatically,
    you chose to search it on your pc and from a list of drivers. It will give you the choice between Conexant and "High definition Audio driver". Pick the High def. one and install it. If in the next days, windows won't replace it by Conexant, it's a permanent
    fix.

    After installing it, your audio (also dolby) will work fine and the microphone which had issues through several drivers will work perfectly. Cortana will react faster to Hey Cortana and I have the impression that my Laptop boots like 5 seconds faster (boot
    + loading my autostart programs)

  3. [SOLVED] Update KB3147062 causing audio driver issues in Windows

    Hi,

    Since the update KB3147062 has been installed on my Lenovo laptop (Z50-70), the functionality Dolby of my audio driver (Conexant Smart Audio HD, version 8.66.29.59) is not working anymore, as well as the microphone.

    I cannot uninstall the update as it does not appear in the list where I can uninstall updates (although it appears installed in Windows Update).

    Thank you for you help.

    Miguel
