Question about Computers & Internet
I have an HP G60t-200 laptop. I installed Windows 8 Pro. No sound. HP does not support this model in Windows 8.
You can sometimes you can use Win 7 drivers for the audio, found on the HP website: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?os=4062&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&sw_lang=&product=3837660#N231 ,for your onexant High-Definition SmartAudio 221 . That said, you may have to change the compatibility of the driver to WINdows 8, you did not say 32 or 64, and install it to your audio device. Have you notices other devices in Device Manager that are not working properly? I had a similar situation, Audio, Modem, Card Reader, when I upgraded an old (2005) Gateway MX6421 to Win 7 pro N 64 I had to locate the drivers, (from a HP site), change a few lines of code in the drivers and change compatibility to Win 7.

Stephane, I ran into the same problem after wiping out my Compaq nc6320 and trying to install XP Pro. The fix is to disable SATA Native mode. To do this: Enter F10 Setup then System Configuration>Device Configurations>SATA Native Mode and disable it, save the changes and now you should be able to install XP Pro. Remember, when I did this the drive was blank, I don't know if that makes a difference or not. Best of luck! Bryan P.S. If you want to enable SATA native mode after you have installed XP Pro check out this link: http://forums1.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=1042050&admit=-682735245+1161793137260+28353475
