Check the manufacturer website for driver support. If the site has no downloads, google the manufacturer name, device and the word driver to search for updates. (i.e.- dell audio driver)

I am having difficulty obtaining drivers O 3000 N100 OS XP Base System Device PCI bus 5, device 6, function 2 Base System Device PCI bus 5, device 6, function 3 Base System Device...

Base System Device drivers are usually installed by what the manufacturer calls "Chipset" drivers. If you are running Windows XP, there is an Intel Chipset driver available at the Lenovo Support Page for your model. If you are running an Operating System other than Windows XP, I would go to the above page and compare the drivers listed there with what you are seeing in Device Manager. Install the ones that are missing. Hope this helps!

Audio CD sound Prob

Various conditions may cause this problem. To troubleshoot, check the following:Microsoft Volume Control or your mixer program mute options and volume sliders. 
Connect headphones to the stereo phone jack on your CD-ROM drive’s front panel; adjust the volume control settings on the drive. If there is sound from your headphones, check the CD audio cable connection from the CD-ROM drive to the audio card. 
Ensure the speakers are properly connected to the audio card’s output connector. 
Joystick port is not working 
To troubleshoot, check the following:
The audio card joystick port conflicts with another joystick port in the system. Disable the audio card joystick port, and use the system’s joystick port. 
The joystick drivers, MSJSTICK.DRV and VJOYD.VXD, may not be installed. Uninstall the joystick, then reinstall to load the drivers. The drivers should come with the driver CD or floppy diskette with your sound card.
Computer hangs or restarts during installation
A hardware conflict may cause the computer to hang or restart during the installation procedure. Check the following to resolve the conflict:
A hardware conflict with another device in your system. 
Previously installed sound card hardware or software needs to be removed. 
The audio card is not seated in the slot properly. 
PCI bus mastering devices may be interfering with the operation of the audio card. Temporarily remove non-essential PCI bus mastering devices.
Resolving hardware conflicts
Hardware conflicts occur when two or more devices contend for the same resources. Conflicts between your audio card and another device may occur regarding the I/O address, IRQ line, or DMA channel:
Right-click the My Computer icon on your desktop, and select Properties. The System Properties dialog appears. 
Click the Device Manager tab. In the Device Manager, a plus sign(+) represents an expandable list of items. A minus sign (-) represents an expanded list. A circled exclamation mark denotes a conflict. 
Double-click Sound, video, game controllers. A list of multimedia devices appears. 
Select your audio card. 
Choose the Propertis button. 
Click the Resources tab. 
Uncheck the Use automatic settings option. 
Change "Settings based on:" if alternate settings are available. 
Determine the conflict by reviewing the "Conflicting device list".
Select the conflicting item in the "Resource Settings" list. 
Click the Change Settings button. 
Use the mouse to select a new setting. 
Select OK to close each of the properties windows, and restart your computer.
Audio card is not automatically detected
To manually configure your audio card for Windows 95/98:
Click "Start" on the taskbar, and select Settings from the Start menu. 
Select Control Panel. The Control Panel group appears. 
Double-click the Add New Hardware icon. The Add New Hardware Wizard dialog appears. 
Select Next to continue. 
Choose Yes to have Windows search for new hardware, then select Next 
Select Next to continue. 
Select Finish, and follow the prompts to complete the new hardware installation.
CD does not automatically run when you insert it in the drive
To enable the "Audio insert notification" feature:
Right-click the My Computer icon on your desktop, and select Properties. The System Properties dialog appears. 
Click the Device Manager tab. A list of devices appears. 
Double-click CD-ROM, and select your CD-ROM drive. 
Choose the Properties button. The CD-ROM drive properties dialog appears. 
Choose the Settings tab. 
Click the "Auto insert notification" option to enable. 
Select OK until all Properties dialogs are closed, and restart Windows for the changes to take effect.
No sound is heard from speakers
Verify the following:
Check the Microsoft Volume Control or the Audio Mixer Program mute options and volume sliders. 
Ensure the speakers are properly connected to the audio card’s output connector. 
Check the volume control and power connection of the speakers, if they are amplified. (Refer to the speakers documentation for detailed information). 
Ensure a hardware conflict does not exist between your audio card and another device in your system. 
PCI bus mastering devices may be interfering with the operation of the audio card. Temporarily remove non-essential PCI bus mastering devices. If the device is a display card, upgrade the display card drivers, or set the card to the default Windows VGA mode.
If you are experiencing no sound only during audio CD playback, see "No sound is heard from audio (music) CDs" above.

Static sounds are heard in wave files
Check to see if the static sounds are heard in all wave files. If the difficulty occurs only with certain games, refer to the software manufacturer’s documentation. To troubleshoot static sounds heard in all wave files:
Try different resource settings for the audio card, or set the card to use low DMA. 
Move the audio card to another PCI slot. Feedback from the power supply or another device may be responsible.

Wireless card not functioning/disabled after loading XP in a Compaq Presario C700T CTO Notebook PC

The wireless is not going to turn on and off via the switch properly until we get the drivers loaded to make it work. There are 3 possible types of wireless card it could be, so we have to find out the exact model number of your system. On the bottom there should be a label that has a P/N or part number listed. what are those numbers. Here's an example of the label:


we need the info listed for #1, #2 and #3. Then we should be able to determine which adapter you have, and then we can (hopefully) find some Windows XP drivers for you.

Ethernet controller, Multemedia controller, PCI Modem and Video controller dont work since i've installed home edition

I will try. First, upgrade xp to xphome? I think XP home is not an upgrade from anything except maybe Win Me or 9x. As far as I understand it, XP home is the lowest flavor of Win that is currently being supported. That being said, Heres my idea.

I don't know the type of lap you have so I cant look for it myself but if you go to your manufactures web site you should be able to find updated drivers for your Laptop. Usually it can be found under the heading "support" or "downloads". They will ask for your model # and then provide you with a list of drivers and such. If you include your Make and Model# I can help further. But I bet you just the need to update the drivers.
