Ok, seems like I have no luck. Here were some general tests that I did and the dmesg results:

Now something weird is that when I initially changed to just model=hp-dv5, the mute light on my laptop
went from orange to white. But no sound played. Then after the above tests failed, I started to try different models again (such as auto, laptop) and
now that light is orange. So I changed back to just model=hp-dv5, and the light is still orange.
Any other suggestions?

Try model=hp-dv5 with the very latest alsa-driver snapshot below
If you have a luck, it may work. Some HP dv4 model seems to have a
broken BIOS while some has a correct one.
