    After you click the link, you need to select your operating system from the ones listed. once you do that it should pop-up a page that has a listing of available drivers. Select the one you need and that should initiate the download.

    Directsound is actually part of Microsofts DirectX API, so there may be a few things you have to do to fix this.

    First get the latest drivers for your soundcard at the link provide in the initial post.

    After that if you still have a problem, please visit Microsofts website and download the latest version of DirectX for your operating system and install.

    Once an updated DirectX is installed your computer will need to be rebooted. Once this is done you should have audio again. If not please post your results here and I will be glad to try to assist you further.

    Thanks Dave

Audio drivers and diskchecking problem

HP/Compaq no longer provides sound drivers for this model. If you have the org. CD's that came with the computer, you're in luck. Simply pop the drivers CD in, navigate to the sound driver, install.
As for the disk checking problem - let it finish. No matter how long it takes, let it finish. If you see sectors being checked, then same sectors being checked again, or sector #'s going up - then back down, then up again - drive is failing. Replace drive, and reinstall Windows.

After installing Win XP in compaq laptop problems with headset

Sounds like you need to go to the manufacturer of your sound card and get the drivers specifically for your sound card and XP.The drivers that you loaded from the other machine are incompatable.Thats what is causing the partial functionality of your sound card.Also make sure you have it configured properly.

Required sound card

You can download all the drivers you need for your Compaq Presario C772tu at this web link:

Please make sure to follow the steps to the audio drivers exactly as you need to make sure you have the Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture Bus Driver for High Def Audio installed before you install the other audio driver.

I've read that this is time consuming but it works..good luck!
