Click "Next" and follow the onscreen instructions to download and install the update. If you already have the newest version of the software, windows won't present any update options.

Hi Friend, As you have mentioned that you have installed Windows XP on the system. I would like to tell you that after installing Windows XP, you have to install the drivers for the video and audio also.
Since you haven't mentioned the make of the laptop. So, I would request you to please let me know the make of the laptop so that I can provide you with the drivers for the same.
The only issue that why you are not getting sound is that we have to install the sound drivers in order to make the sound to work.

Low sound


Method 1: Try another sound device loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); If possible, plug a different output device into the computer. For example, if you have been using speakers, try a different pair of speakers or a set of headphones to make sure that the problem is not related to the device itself.

Determine whether you can hear sound. If you can hear sound, there is a problem with the original output device and the issue is resolved. If you cannot hear sound, plug the original output device back into the computer and go to method 2.

Method 2: Use the Windows XP Sound Troubleshooter loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); Windows XP includes a troubleshooting program which could help you resolve your sound issues. Start the Windows XP Sound Troubleshooter automatically or manually and then answer each question on-screen in order to try to find a resolution.

Step 1: Start the Sound Troubleshooter loadTOCNode(3, 'resolution'); If you are already familiar with Windows XP Help and Support Center, click the following link to start the Sound Troubleshooter:

OR

Start Sound Troubleshooter manually by using the following steps:
  1. Click Start, and then click Help and Support.
  2. Under Pick a Help Topic, click Fixing a problem.
  3. In the navigation pane on the left, click Games, sound, and video problems.
  4. In the topic pane, on the right side, click Sound Troubleshooter.
Step 2: Use the Sound Troubleshooter loadTOCNode(3, 'resolution');
  1. Click the option that describes the problem that is occurring, and then click Next.
  2. Repeat step 1 until your problem is resolved or until you have reached the end of the troubleshooting path.

    Note You can click Back at any time to repeat the last step, or you can click Start Over to start the Sound Troubleshooter again.
Determine whether you can now hear sound. If you can hear sound, the issue is resolved. If you cannot hear sound, try method 3.

Method 3: Update your Media Player software loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); If the sound problem that you are experiencing occurs when you use a media player such as Microsoft Windows Media Player, try updating your media player software. To obtain the latest version of the Windows Media Player, visit the following Microsoft Web site: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/download/AllDownloads.aspx (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/download/AllDownloads.aspx) Determine whether you can now hear sound. If you can hear sound, the issue is resolved. If you cannot hear sound, try method 4.

Method 4: Update sound drivers loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); Out-of-date sound drivers may cause sound problems. Check whether an updated sound driver is available. You can use Microsoft Update to help you determine your current sound driver and if an update is available. Then contact the sound driver hardware or the computer manufacturer to request an updated sound driver.

To find out whether applicable driver updates are available, visit the following Microsoft Windows Update Web site: http://update.microsoft.com (http://update.microsoft.com) If the sound driver is out of date, follow these steps to find the name and provider of your sound driver:
  1. Click Start and then click Run.
  2. Type dxdiag in the Open box, and then click OK.
  3. Click the Sound tab.
  4. Under Device, look for Name, and under Driver, look for Provider.
  5. Click Exit.
Contact the manufacturer of the sound driver to request an updated sound driver.

How can i get the sound card installer from the internet?


It's actually a sound driver, I think, that you're looking for. Your sound no longer works after (fill in the blank) of xp? See this article for xp sound troubleshooter, and this tutorial will walk you through the driver update process.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

"No Audio Output Device is installed"


I checked their website. Did you download the sound driver RAM2080 Win Vista x 86 15.02.2007 version 6.10.5337.0?

If so and it did not work it looks like you'll have to update the BIOS (BIOS update RAM2080 _only_ for MS Windows Vista 14.05.2007 version F0A. However BE VERY CAREFUL and follow the instructions EXACTLY, otherwise you may make the computer unbootable.

How to install XP in toshiba Satellite L45-S7423 laptop


You cannot uninstall Windows Vista, but you can reinstall your previous operating system, which then replaces Windows Vista. To reinstall your old operating system, you must have the original installation disc. Back up your programs and files, insert the installation disc into your computer, and then reinstall the old operating system. To regain the hard disk space used by Windows Vista, reformat the disk during the reinstallation process. After reinstalling your previous operating system, reinstall your programs and files.
