Lost my Wifi connections and sounds. Originally Window Home Vista. Now, converted to XP. I dont have a driver.
I have the same problem on HP Pavilion tx1327cl notebook. I had been in contact with HP support and they had me install the original driver from HP recovery. It worked intermittently for a couple of days, but now nothing. Constant orange light and does not show up in the device manager.

1plug in monitor 2.right click desktop go to properties (on XP) or screen resolution (on 7 or vista) you should see two boxes labeled one and 2 double click 2 that's you monitor...on xp in the properties window go to settings tab to find that option, if it does not show up reset your computer with external monitor plugged in and repeat process if necessary if that doesn't work you need to update driver for your graphics card/chip
If your using a card take it out until you have XP installed.
Go into your bios and disable all your audio settings until you have XP installed.
Check and see if your audio is even compatible with XP.
Disconnect the any external devices that are connected to the audio input until XP is installed.

I just had the same problem today and fixed it with HP tech support. This is the instruction from them: at bootup, hit F10 to go into BIOS mode. At the BIOS screen,
hit F9 which loads the factory default setup. Exit and Save. They asked me to
reload the Broadcom driver and Nvidia driver but I didn't have to. Mine
was a F700 running windows Vista. Good luck.
You may find that the WiFi card needs new drivers. Some particular wifi adapters don't have XP drivers. Compaq are now owned by hewlett packard so go to www.hp.com and search for XP drivers for your wifi card there - luckily HP are very good for providing drivers for XP even on Vista-supplied systems.
