SOUND DRIVER


Compaq does not provide XP drivers for your Presario notebook. However, HP uses the same soundcard on several notebooks (HP owns Compaq), and they do provide XP drivers, so here is the link:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/genericSoftwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=ob-45570-1&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en

Download it, and install it, and you should be fine. You may need network and video drivers as well. If so, let me know.

Cheers

No sound


Go to Compaq site, and check if there are drivers for win xp. Mind that xp does not include drivers for the most recent hardware. Have you tried installing sp2 and sp3? These carry more recent drivers than SP1 and older vesions. And if there are no drivers for xp, you are stuck with vista.

SOUND DRIVERS FOR COMPAQ PRESARIO C790EI ON WINDOWS XP


It is not always advisable to downgrade from Vista to XP, especially on a laptop. The reason being that most of the installed components on the laptop, are specifically chosen for their compatibility with Vista.
However, you can try the following driver, which is more or less a universal basic driver that should work with your machine.
http://www.soft82.com/download/Windows/Vinyl_AC97_Codec_Combo_Driver

Should that not work, you will have to find the make and model of your sound card and do a Google search for the drivers..

Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions,please feel free to post them here.

P.S. - If you find that the solution/answerI provided led you to, or resulted in a fix, please close the ticket with a FixYa!rating. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.

Sound Driver of a Compaq Presario C700 Notebook PC


Starcomp gave this on another post as to where to find the drivers for windows XP: http://members.driverguide.com/driver/detail.php?driverid=1194857. There is a check on the site for compatibility check to you laptop or audio card.

Sqabdul, you will find a VGA driver there, too, but you will need all the information on your video card.
