Hi,
Here's the page with all the drivers:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=228&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=423967&lang=en
This is what is necessary whenever you downgrade to XP, so you're not alone.. :)
You'll need the audio, the chipset, wireless, lan.. and at some point you'll have to get the drivers for the video card you are using. (ATI or vVidia etc.)
SO, for example, download the audio one to your desktop and unzip it to a folder. Now go to Control Panel and System and find the Device Manager.
From the device list, find the audio device with the yellow exclamation mark next to it and double-click it. Now hit the Driver tab. Click Install Driver and choose the 'Browse computer for driver' type option. Navigate to the folder you unzipped it to, and click on it. Then let it install and reboot. Your sound will be back.
It's pretty much the same for the other ones you might need..

Hope this helps

The yellow question marks signify that the driver is either not present or needs updating to work. You will need to download drivers for these devices if you do not have the disks that came with them. This can be done by going to the device manufacturers website and clicking on the upport page. Look up your device models # & download the newest drivers for your operating system. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Go ahead and install SP3 for XP. This should resolve your video and sound issues. For the other items load the appropriate drivers.

In my sony vaio lappy my dvd writer is not working any solution


You probably have a Windows O/S on your Vaio. You can open *Device Manager* and check to see if your DVD drive is shown and doesn't have a red or yellow exclamation mark on it. It it has such a mark then it's got a problem.

You can right click on it and choose *properties* either way and you should have a properties dialog box open up that will tell you if the device is working properly or not. If it's not working properly it could be the device drivers (software) got corrupted, deleted or lost. The dialog box should give you the option to update, roll back or re-install the drivers.

Or, if the device spins up but does nothing in the way of reading or writing, try cleaning the laser lens with a cotton Q-tip slightly damp with isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol. These lasers can get dusty and thus malfunction.

You can check in File Manager. If the drive does not show in File Manager then it has a connection problem or it's dead.

Good luck!

Just got a refurbished HP Pavilion DV7-4165DX laptop. Right out of the box it blue screen crashes and continues to do this several times a day. I have used the backup partition to reformat/reinstall...


One of the main reasons for blue screen crashes is a faulty device driver.

RMB click "My computer" - LMB "Manage" - LMB "Device Manager" and look for yellow question marks in the device listing. If you find one, said device driver needs attention.

To find drivers for you laptop, go to the HP website, follow links for support and downloads entering details of you laptop and operating system as you go.

It may be worth the trouble of updating you drivers to the latest versions anyway.

Code 41 means the driver is either not loaded or corrupt.

There is no sound from Dell Inspiron B120 laptop. under sounds and audio devices in the control panel, there is no indication of an audio device.


That shows you that the driver might be corrupted. Make sure you right click on my computer, manage, device manager and see if there is a yellow mark under the sounds. If that is the case go to the manufacture website and download the driver

hi, I have scoured the internet and this worked for me

Fixing Code 39 Error
If your CD-ROM drive is not visible in My Computer, you may see the following error message displayed with the CD or DVD drive item in your Device Manager. (Steps to open Device Manager are discussed later in the article.)
"Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)"
Using Device Manager
To fix this error, first try to update the driver from the Device Manager. To open Device Manager, right-click My Computer on your Desktop, and then on the Hardware tab, select the Device Manager button.
In the Device Manager window, identify the CD or DVD drive item (with Yellow exclamation mark), right-click on it and select Update Driver. Follow the screen instructions to update the device driver and restart your PC.
Using Registry Editor
If updating the driver does not resolve the problem, it indicates that there is a problem in the registry. To fix this problem, you may have to remove a few keys from the registry.
Note: Be careful while working with the registry editor because changes done to the registry using the Registry Editor are irreversible and mistakes can leave you with more problems than when you started. Therefore, it is recommended that you make a backup of the registry before proceeding with the changes.
After you have removed the registry keys listed below, you will have to reinstall all applications that you use for CD or DVD recording to make them work properly.
To fix the error by editing the registry, perform the following steps:
  1. Exit and close all applications currently running on your PC.
  2. On Start > Run type Regedit and press the Enter key.
  3. Next, navigate to the following registry key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\ Control\Class\ {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
  4. Delete any of the following registry entries if they exist under this key:
    • LowerFilters
    • LowerFilters.bak
    • UpperFilters
    • UpperFilters.bak
  5. Restart your PC and open My Computer to ensure that the CD-ROM drive is visible.
  6. Also, open the Device Manager again to ensure that the yellow exclamation mark and the error code is now gone.
  7. Restart your PC and open My Computer to ensure that the CD-ROM drive is visible.
  8. Also, open the Device Manager again to ensure that the yellow exclamation mark and the error code is now gone.

It sounds complicated but it was actually quite simple, just make sure you delete the right files.

Laptop s infrared device, serial cable using IrDA Protocol problem


Sound has nothing to do with infrared devices.
The yellow exclamation mark that you see under the device manager is due to drivers of the infrared device not found or is not installed properly.
There might also be a possibility that the device is not getting recognized by the computer due to corrupted drivers so the drivers of the particular needs to be installed again with the CD.
