Sound drivers for Xp sp2

For specific models with different chipset drivers, you can get the sound driver & pretty much everything else on If you can't connect to the Internet, "Tecra, Portege", & sometimes "Qosmio" models came with a built-in HDD recovery, meaning you need to create your recovery disk by running the "Recovery Disk Creator". An application to create your recovery disk. A shortcut is created on the desktop by default, if you cannot find it there, try looking at "C:\Program Files\Toshiba\Toshiba Recovery Disk Creator" & run the "exe" file, it should give you a menu to create one. After creating the disk, you can use that disc to install the drivers for all Toshiba pre-installed devices/softwares on that machine. For Satellite models, the disc should come with the laptop when you boughtt it. When you have the disc, just insert it inside of windows, it will give you options to install the driver & software for a specific toshiba device.

Hope this helps.

About loding sound driver

Hi Avadhesh,

Thats doesnt seem to be a big problem, What you could do is download the device driver for the sound card.

just check weather ur laptop has a sound card from realtech or intel and go the website of the manufacturer and download the same. as All HP Pavillion series laptops only have the following two sound cards.
