I have the same model,so you are in luck!! The drivers are really actually already there,you just have to tell the laptop(windows) to "look again",so to speak.Just go to Control panel/hardware/device manager,then righ click on any device listed and then scan for hardware changes.You will see "new harware found",then it will tell you it found multimedia device and continue to load the drivers for you.If it`s the same as mine,it will be ATI integrated digital audio,then you should have sound.Please let me know if it works for you:)
The following items can cause Setup to stop responding while the "Setup is starting Windows" message is displayed:
An incorrect mass-storage device (such as a SCSI or IDE controller) driver is being loaded, or the driver was not written for Windows and is not compatible. Contact the device's manufacturer or download the latest driver for the mass-storage device. For additional information, click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
216406 Specifying Third-Party Disk Controller Driver During Setup
There is a device connected to your mass-storage device that is preventing Windows from being installed. Remove any devices (such as scanners, tape drives, removable drives, and so on) from the mass-storage device controller. If the computer is IDE-based, verify that you have the master and slave designations set properly. If the mass-storage controller is SCSI-based, verify that the termination and bus speed is set properly.
The computer does not have the latest BIOS revision. Contact the computer's manufacturer or check the manufacturer's Web site. Many manufacturers have updated their BIOS revisions to properly support Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI).
An ACPI Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) is being used during Setup. Force the use of a non-ACPI HAL during Setup. For additional information about this procedure, click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

You may have to load you SATA drivers first? OR choose another HAL, press F6 during setup.Setup ACPI also.
**Even though your computer may SAY that it is a Presario V2000, it may have an entirely different product number for downloading drivers specific to your particular configuration.**
1) Look at the serial code on the back/bottom of your computer: there is a number starting with p/n (ex. p/nEX664UA#APL) This code identifies your computer beyond the V2000 label.
2) Go to the compaq/hp website: http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/welcome.html#Support
3) select "Download Drivers and software(and firmware)"
4) THEN, enter your P/N Instead of "Presario V2000" into the product name/number box, and hit enter.
Select your operating system, and you will be redirected to a page listing all the necessary drivers for your model.
On the left of your screen, you will see a box that says "your product" with a picture of a laptop, and a model number beneath it. THIS IS YOUR ACTUAL MODEL NUMBER (Mine was Compaq Presario V2610CA Notebook PC).
5) Download and install the drivers you need, and gappy geeking!!!
Please let me know from where i can download the following drivers for my Compaq Presario v2000 machine: 1. Multimedia Audio Controller 2. Network Controller 3. PCI Modem 4. Video Controller 5. Video Controller (VGA Compatible)
Out of the three, which one is your model..
Compaq Presario V2000 CTO Notebook PC
Compaq Presario V2000T CTO Notebook PC
Compaq Presario V2000Z CTO Notebook PC
Please specify and also about the OS you are using?
