I have downgraded my laptop (model v6604au) from vista to XP. But sound is not working. After installing sound driver, audio works but in between it goes then again i need to reinstall driver and reboot it...


Can you do manual install of your sound card driver? I believe this issue will be resolved once you complete the manual install of your sound driver. Also, the sound driver for this laptop is - Conexant High Definition Audio Driver.

0. Download the corresponding file and unzip.

01. Click START
02. Click RUN
03. Type "devmgmt.msc" in the prompt and click "OK"
04. In other devices>> You will see two nos of "Audio Device on HD Audio Bus"
05. Right Click the first one and Click "disable"
06. In other devices>> right click the second Audio Device on ........
07. Click "update driver"
08. Select "No, not this time" and Click "Next"
09. Select "Install from a list or specific location(Advanced)" and Click "Next"
10. Select "Don`t search. I will choose" and Click "Next"
11. From the list scroll down and select "Sound, video and game controller" and Click next
12. Click "Have Disk.."
13. Click "Browse" and choose this folder
14. Select the ".inf? file from the extracted directory and Click on "Open"
15. Click "OK"

My problem sounds audio devices not working



Perform a System Restore If Necessary:

  • Step 1 - If the sound has been audible from your computer's speakers and is suddenly lost, you may need to perform a System Restore. Click on the " Start" button and then "All Programs."
  • Step 2 - Click on "Accessories," then "System Tools," then "System Restore."
  • Step 3 - Complete the System Restore Wizard. If this doesn't work, read on.

Delete And Reinstall the Original Sound Drivers:

  • Step 1 - Deleting and reinstalling your sound driver may resolve the problem. Your sound driver may have been corrupted or may be missing. The result of this is that the restore utility menu won't be available. For Windows XP, follow these steps.
  • Step 2 - Click on your "Start" button. Click on "Control Panel" and then "System." Next, click on "Hardware," then "Device Manager, then "Sound, Video and Game Controllers."
  • Step 3 - Click on a sound device named in the Device Manager, and then press the Delete key on the keyboard. Click "OK" in the window that appears. Remove all the listed sound devices i this way EXCEPT Audio Codec and Legacy Audio Drivers.


  • Step 4 - Restart your computer. Reinstall the deleted drivers using the Driver and Application Recovery CDs that came with your Windows XP system.
  • Step 5 - Visit your computer manufacturer's official website. Check for any updated sound driver software for your sound card. If any, download them along with the installation instructions.

How can I uninstall the legacy audio drivers from my HCL laptop? Please help!!


Open the Device Manager. The easiest way to do this is to click the "Start" button in Windows and select "Run"; then type "devmgmt.msc" and enter.

Find the entry titled "Sound, video and game controllers" and expand it by clicking the small plus sign next to it.

Right-click on each Legacy audio driver on the list and select "Uninstall" from the available options in the pop-up menu. If "Uninstall" is not a viable option, it means that the new sound card or its drivers are not properly configured. You should try rebooting your computer once to fix this, but if you still cannot uninstall the Legacy drivers, you should consult the support resources for the specific sound card you've purchased.
