It is not always advisable to downgrade from Vista to XP, especially on a laptop. The reason being that most of the installed components on the laptop, are specifically chosen for their compatibility with Vista.
However, you can try the following driver, which is more or less a universal basic driver that should work with your machine.

Should that not work, you will have to find the make and model of your sound card and do a Google search for the drivers..

Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions,please feel free to post them here.

P.S. - If you find that the solution/answerI provided led you to, or resulted in a fix, please close the ticket with a FixYa!rating. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.

Sound Driver of a Compaq Presario C700 Notebook PC


Reinstallations of XP sometimes do not install all of the sound files needed. Do a google search for UAA, it is Microsoft's audio file. Download it, install it and then run Windows update. The drivers for your machine should be under the Hardware section of the updates.

Starcomp gave this on another post as to where to find the drivers for windows XP: http://members.driverguide.com/driver/detail.php?driverid=1194857. There is a check on the site for compatibility check to you laptop or audio card.

Sqabdul, you will find a VGA driver there, too, but you will need all the information on your video card.
