HP Pavilion: Sound problem after Windows Vista SP2 update

HP Pavilion: Sound problem after Windows Vista SP2 update

I have HP Pavilion dv-2051et notebook with Windows Vista Home Premium SP1. Recently the sound of my notebook completely went off and I poked up Windows sound settings and IDT HD Sound panel to bring it back, but to no avail (trust me, I looked at every setting). Then I made a system restore to the point located just before Vista SP2 was installed. The sounds came back. Afterwards, I installed Vista SP2 again, and the sounds went off again. SP2 installation causes complete loss of sounds of my notebook. What can I do to overcome this problem? I don't want to stay with SP1 but installing SP2 brings me a huge problem. Anyone experienced this lately? Any recommendations? Thanks in advance.

this solution (IDT - no sound after installing Vista SP2) suggests to uninstall the sound driver, restart the computer, windows will automatically install the drivers again, solved.
