I am not sure that you have the correct audio driver software for your, Compaq Workstation AP550 Series 158272-001MB, Desktop PC. Please keep in mind Compaq does not support win XP. Only win 98 & a few others. The drivers for this motherboard is listed at this link:
There is a drop-down window to change language if needed. (Above link).
To see all operating systems supported for this Compaq click this next link:
How to install the audio driver? Create a folder on your desktop & name it " Audio ".
Download the *.exe file into the Audio folder. Run the *.exe & save the files into the Audio folder.
Next open control panel. Open the System icon. The " System Properties " window will open.
Click the hardware tab & than click the device manager button. A window like this should open;
Find & open, " Sound, video and game controllers ". This should already be opened.
Right click once on the yellow ! explanation point or the yellow ? question mark & left click once on update driver. Windows hardware wizard will open. Click No, not at this time. Than click the next button. Another window will open. Left click once in the circle next to, Install from a list or specific location (Advanced). Than click the next button. Again, another window will open. We want to remove the green check mark next to, Search removable media (floppy, CD-ROM...). Click the green check mark once & it will go away.
Click the browse button, click the + sign next to my computer. Find the desktop folder
You created & named, Audio. Open it. Left click the setup.exe file once so it is high-lighted
& click OK.
Windows will install the driver software automatically. Once completed. Close all opened windows & restart you’re system. Test your audio. If you intend to use a mic, you will need to set this up through control panel. Open, Sounds and audio device. Click the Voice tab.
Good luck aishwaryasmr!
