You will need to go to the manufacturers website for each component and download the XP drivers for each one. In other words, if video device is a Radeon Mobility - go to the ATI website and download and install the XP driver for the Radeon Mobility card. Do this for each peripheral you need a driver for. I suggest saving all the driver files and burning them to a CD for safekeeping should you ever need them again.

Sound card dvr for presario v6500 with Windows XP


This is from HP's website:
If an HP Pavilion and Compaq Presario, delivered with Vista isdowngraded to the XP operating system, HP may not provide drivers.Users are encouraged to search the Microsoft web site for informationon downgrading to XP and locating updated drivers.

See Issues with Downgrading HP Pavilion and Compaq Presario PCs to Windows XP and Restoring Windows Vista for more detailed information.

The Service Manual may tell you the chipset of the sound card(but I didn't see it just part numbers). Also, you can run this utility here(look for audio in the output), in the event that you can't figure out the chipset otherwise.

According to this post, it appears that it may be part of windows update, you can try that.

Xp audio driver for my laptop compaq presario c735et


Hello,

All this latest HP notebooks are specially meant for Vista. XP drivers for this notebook are not designed. So, HP strongly recomends not to downgrade the OS.

Anyhow, as you have already installed XP, I will provide the workaround Audio driver. That should work.

I did research on this and found this drivers.

You have to install two drivers on XP to get Audio.

First, download and install the Microsoft UAA driver from the below URL:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/genericSoftwareDownloadIndex?cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&softwareitem=ob-47284-1&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN

After that download and install the Conexant Audio Driver from the below URL:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/genericSoftwareDownloadIndex?cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&softwareitem=ob-42513-1&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN

That should get install.

You have to download XP drivers from the manufacturer's website. This normally happens because your harware was designed for the new OS(Vista).

Just go to hp.com and search for the model of your Laptop.
