No audio after reformating

I have a Compaq Presario SR1430NX and am running XP with service pack 1. I just had to reformat the pc because the restore disks that came with it were for and HP and would not let me use.

I have reinstalled the audio drives several times but I still have no audio and when you look in device manager, it says there are no problems and everything is woking fine. When you look at the sound, speech & audio int he control panel, it says there is nothing installed.

I also have an after market NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 graphics card installed, but that is not new and I have disbled the integrated video card. no sound after reformating my system

1. check bios that pci audio is enabled. if this doesn't do the trick, there's a 50/50 chance that static electricity killed the audio chip on the motherboard.

How can i install windows xp sp3 in compaq presario cq60-104tu.


Ok it must be one of this problems:

1) you had vista, you wanted xp for whatever reason. you are doing a fresh install using the service pack 3 disk. there is hardware combatiblity issues and must stay with vista. this is becoming more common with the life of xp coming to an end.

2) you had xp and are reinstalling and hardware has failed.

3) you had service pack 2 or before and are updating your service pack and there is some issue with hardware or software.

Audio driver for C740TU,compatibale with win XP sp2


Hi,

For a Compaq Presario C740TU Notebook PC running Windows XP, audio drivers would be for Conexant High-Definition Audio. Importantly, SoftPaq Number SP31994, "Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) Bus Driver for High Definition Audio," (or later) must be installed on the notebook before installing SP32823.
  • sp31994.exe 1/1 (6.12M) (ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp31501-32000/sp31994.exe)
  • sp32823.exe 1/1 (6.12M) (ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp32501-33000/sp32823.exe)
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

No audio driver


You're really unclear on which machine you need the driver for, so, the first link is the drivers for the Presario sr1610nx, and the second link is for the drivers for the c783tu. If you're loading XP into a c700 you may need to search driverguide.com for the audio driver, search by the make and model of the sound card.
