I am guessing you have not installed the sound driver for XP.
Here is the link:

There is also the modem sound driver available from that link, but I believe you want the one labeled " Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) Bus Driver for High Definition Audio (sp33867)"

What is maximum size for hard drive on HP pavilion dv6105us ?


There is no maximum size hard drive for the DV series laptop, especially if you are running Vista or Windows 7. If you are running XP, make sure that the operating system has service pack 3 in it and you can run any capacity drive you wish.

I have HP dv6701au laptop. previously it was loaded with Vista, but now i have installed XP. The problem is that i can't get the appropriate drivers for my laptop. i had already asked the same from HP...


Before downgrading from Windows Vista to Windows XP you should always confer with your computer's manufacturers website to look up your model and see if they support the downgrade. Often times the only way for you to downgrade is to have it done before receiving the computer, since a majority of the hardware on the laptop is made specifically for Vista and is not backwards compatible. Looking on the HP website, I see that they only offer a very limited number of Windows XP drivers for your system, which tells us that downgrading is not possible.
I would recommend that you consider not downgrading but rather upgrading to Windows 7 as it is a much more stable and functional OS than its predecessor Windows Vista. You can even run Windows 7 in Windows XP compatibility mode so you can enjoy the benefits and upgrade of Windows 7 but still have the Windows XP feel and functionality. I will be writing a How-To/Tip on Windows XP Compatibility mode today so you can be on the lookout for more information on that.

I have a Pavilion HP dv4 laptop with Windows Vista. It is fast with internet pages, but incredibly slow opening, saving files on the computer. It may take 5 minues to open a folder on the C drive!


First use the recovery cd ..or installation cd ..to reinstall the operation system ....cause this is a sign that it got a bug on the system ..or has some damaged files that slow it down ....
Another thing ...if it worked like this always...I sugest to downgrade to windows xp .cause you probably do not have enough Ram memory for this OS ...or upgrade the ram by inserting one more slot if it has free slots...
for vista to operate well enough in a computer you need at least 2G of ram memory ...if you have only one ....better install windows XP ...if you want to downgrade to Xp and do not have the drivers ..let me know to link you to a download location ...

Downgrade to XP


Looks like they do not have very many drivers listed for XP on their site, but all of them (obviously) for Vista. I would recommend you not downgrade to XP with that particular laptop. Sorry!

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.

Vista downgrade to xp


First, why are you downgrading? Unless you have a particular piece of software that you HAVE to have that doesn't work on Vista, you shouldn't downgrade. Windows XP is outdated, and very soon won't be supported by Microsoft. So unless you have some overwhelming need to have outdated software stick with Vista.

Having said that... If you still want to go ahead with a downgrade to XP, first you'll need a copy of Windows XP and a serial number for XP.

(Note, everything on your computer WILL be erased so make sure you do your backups before you continue!!!)

1) Put the Windows XP CD in your computer and restart it. If your computer is set up to boot from CD, it should start automatically.
2) "To setup windows XP now press enter"
3) Agree to the licensing agreement
4) Choose whichever drive you want to install Windows on and press enter
5) Choose "Format the partition (Quick) and press enter
6) Press "f" to format the drive
7) It'll do the install then after a reboot it should show Regional Option, click next
8) Put your name in and click "Next"
9) Enter your 25 digit product key (Windows XP Key) and click next
10) Enter whatever you want for your computer name. It could be "Desktop" or "Laptop" or "Family System" whatever you like. If you're installing XP Professional, you'll also see a spot to type in a password to get into windows. You can leave it blank if you're the only one using it, or password protect it so no one can get in. (Then Press Next)
11) Make sure your Date/Time and Timezone is correct then press Next
12) "Typical Settings" next.
13) (IF XP PRO) Choose "No" then type in WORKGROUP
14) It should start windows after you've done those steps and you can register with Microsoft and create additional users at this point (All self-explainitory).

You might want to print this out if you're going to go ahead with the install.
