"Had to rebuild a HP Pavilion 533w desktop after a disk crash for a client, but they couldn't find the "recovery disks"...So I started the rebuild from scratch, HP's site had all the drivers but the sound drivers , which brought me to this place , found the driver listed for the machine , installed it and had it up and running in no time...."
