Missing conexant audio driver for Compaq Presario C700

My Compaq Presario C700 came with Vista which is a waste of time, so I "upgraded" back to XP - now the sound card won't work!! I've downloaded everything that HP had to offer, but nothing helps. The guy who sold me the laptop said I need to go back to Vista to make the sound card work - are there any decent solutions?

One solution is you could go to the hp website which I have provided and it will show a list lf the different sub-models of the Presario C700 laptop and select the one that matches your computers number and see if they have an XP driver for your sound card available yet.

http://h20180.www2.hp.com/apps/Nav?h_pagetype=s-002&h_lang=en&h_cc=us&h_product=3466273&h_client=S-A-R163-1&h_page=hpcom&lang=en&cc=us

Otherwise, I would try to figure out who the manufacturer of your sound card is and go to there website. Find out the specific model fo your sound card and then drill through their website to, hopefully, find the driver you are looking for.

Happy Hunting,

This will create a swsetup folder in C drive ("C:\sp36090")

Installing this driver may result in an error. But continue with the following steps to get the audio driver installed correctly.

1. Click on Start and select Run. Now type devmgmt.msc and press enter.

2. Right click on "Audio device on High Definition Audio Bus" and click Update driver.

3. Select "Install from a list or specific location"

4. Click Next. Then select "Don't search, I will choose the driver to install"

5. Click Next and then select "Sound, video and game controller" from the list.

6. Click Next and then click Have Disk.

Download and install Conexant modem driver (sp36089). This will give error message and also will create a folder C:\swsetup\sp36089 which contains extracted driver files.

The same method which is used for installing audio driver needs to be followed for modem.
