Save all needed files to an external media: my documents, desktop, emails, etc. Insert the XP CD in your computer and reboot. Your computer is probably configured to boot from cd , if it asks you follow the onscreen directions to boot from cd. In the installation, make sure you select fresh installation.
If your computer will not boot from cd make sure to enter the bios setup when you first turn your computer on either by pressing del or f2 or whatever it says onscreen. Find where it says boot order and make sure CD or DVD drive is first.

Warning: this will entirely wipe out your computer, but you won't run into compatiblity issues.

OS Matter


Nope.

Without the disk you cannot upgrade to Windows XP Pro, because both Windows XP Home and Windows XP Professional are two different edition / version.

So if you want to upgrade your current operating system from Windows XP Home then you have to spend money to buy Windows XP Pro

But if you want to upgrade the Service Pack then you can very well do it.

Click the link below to download Windows XP SP3 for your edition and install it. Before installing it make sure you have turned off your security programs or better install it from the SafeMode

Audio driver problem after upgrading OS from Windows 98 to xp


You could also try:

Do you have Service Pak 2 installed, it has a lot of updated drivers.

Remove all audio devices in the control panel > System > Hardware tab > Device Manager. Then reboot and let XP redetect the audio hardware.

Another idea is to run Windows Update and see if there's an update to the driver.

Hope that helps...

Sorry to inform you but you cant downgrade from vista to xp on this model I have found most systems that are designed to run vista lose several drivers when downgraded to xp.

the only solution that will restore drivers would be to reload vista by purchasing an upgrade version of vista (this allows an upgrade from xp to vista and will restore drivers only catch is your xp operating system must be xp home with sp2(service pack 2).

When you removed vista from your machine you actually downgraded by replacing the vista operating system with XP.
