An HP desktop computer recently kept displaying a message: “Failed to create Conexant Audio Factory, the SmartAudio will now exit” every 3-5 minutes.

HP has a web page addressing the issue with 3 possible solutions but none seemed to work.

Ultimately, reinstalling the Conexant application immediately resolved the problem. No need to download, just browse to the executable and double click to run. The file location is: “C:\Program Files\CONEXANT\SA3\HP-NB-AIO\setup64.exe”

  1. I wish I could drop you a buck, but times are tight.
    Your solution is the only one that worked! Thank you so much!

  2. I wish I could spare a few bucks for you, but times are tight.
    I just wanted to say “Thank you”, because your solution is the only one that worked for me!
