Question about Compaq tc1100 Tablet PC
Compaq tc1100 PC tablet XP home operating system 512ram Device mgr indicates error on multimedia controller. downloaded driver from HP still does not work. Is there any other place I can locate this driver?
You can try a manual Microsoft Update and choose "Custom" rather than Express and once the scan is done check and see if there's an additional hardware update that points to your Audio/Multimedia hardware.

SOURCE: Tablet Keyboard not working
You may have a damaged (Physical) connection. If you know of someone with a tc1000 or tc1100 keyboard, try a swap to rule this in or out. The keyboards are interchangeable. I have several of both and have done this all the time.
Someone trying to "help you" close your "Laptop" could have damaged the connector at the Main board by trying to fold the tablet screen down like a laptop.
Might be a good time to clear static and reformat too. Cures a world of ills, just takes time.
Pull the battery, Pull the AC power, hold the power switch on for 30 to 40 seconds, and release.
Back up all your good data.
Try a restore, just for grins.
If no go, then do a complete reinstall of the factory image. You will need a USB keyboard, a dock with a cd drive or a USB CD drive, Restore discs (cheap from HP if yours are gone missing) and some time.
Install disc 1, follow the prompts through disc 2 and 3.
Follow on screen windows setup stuff when XP starts.
Go to "start", "all programs", "software set up" and install all the software they offer you.
Go to http://free-virus-removal.org/AVG/index.asp?=2376 and download some free antivirus for now.
Shut down the PC
Try your keyboard.
Either way you will need to go to "windows update" from tools menu in Internet explorer and install updates, service pack 2, etc.
Best of luck, I really enjoy my tc1000 and my tc1100. Wouldn't know what to do without them. I put a 120GB drive in my tc1000 then later moved it to the 1100 (must reformat) and keep many shrunken movies, Office 2007, and lots of tunes on it. I put the 40GB from the 1100 into the 1000 (must reformat- operating system differences) and all is well. I've been into 5 tc1000s and they all worked when I was done, so let me know if you need more help.
I hope this isn't too late.

Tips for a great answer:

Go into Control Panel and select Device
Look down the list of services and click on the missing sound driver, (click on whichever one is highlighted or has a sign on it telling you it is not working properly) and select Update Drivers within the drivers sub menu. Let Windows do its stuff or let the computer find it within System or System 32 directory on your hard drive. If it can't find it, let Windows find a driver on the internet or better still, download the driver from the manufacturers web site.
Hope this helps.
