Remove the first sound device, then restart your computer, to see if vista will see that item. you may need fresh vista drivers for this to work..

Windows/Gateway GM5045E will not discover GeForce 9800GT


The problem is more likely you don't have plug and play running in windows. To install the UPnP user interface
  1. Open Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel.
  2. Click Add/Remove Windows Components.
  3. In the Components list, select the Networking Services check box, and then click Details.
  4. Make sure the UPnP User Interface check box is selected.
You can also add the hardware in manually. Just treat it like a non plug and play device You must be logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group in order to complete this procedure. If your computer is connected to a network, network policy settings might also prevent you from completing this procedure.
  1. Attach the non-Plug and Play device to your computer.
  2. Open shortcutcold.gifAdd Hardware in Control Panel.
  3. In the Add Hardware Wizard, click Next.
  4. Click Add a new hardware device, and then click Next.
  5. Do one of the following:
    • Click Search for and install the hardware automatically (Recommended) if you want Windows to try to detect the new non-Plug and Play device you want to install.
    • Click Install the hardware that I manually select from a list (Advanced) if you know the type and model of the device you are installing and you want to select it from a list of devices.
  6. Click Next, and then follow the instructions on your screen.

No sound...


open the control panel, system/device manager..look for the audio section(codecs) see if any of those are marked with a question mark or exclamation point. if they are, uninstall that item, then go to scan for hardware changes, under the Action tab.

may need to get new drivers for your HP first though..go here for those.
