    Right click on 'my computer' icon, choose 'manage' and then 'device manager' do you have anything with a yellow exclamation mark on it?

    Did you buy this laptop with Vista installed, I'm asking because xp driver support on the Compaq website is very sparse, unless you know about chipsets and hardware ID's then this could prove very difficult, I do know that the audio chipset is 'ALC 888S' and you can try downloading a driver here:-

    But I'm afraid you have other issues here and will need other drivers for other items with exclamation marks.

    Hope this helps, please rate accordingly.

    I bought my daughter a sansa shake for christmas and it wont sync on any computer?


    i wouldnt use sync feature for the shaker read the following:
    check the file types from you music the shaker only plays MP3 and PCM WAV  file types. You may have WMA (if u used windows media player) which will not play on the shaker  (i had this same ploblem btw) you can easly find free music file converter software to change these files to mp3 or wav types (which i did), or you could rerip to songs from a cd and tell the windows media player to rip the files as mp3 types instead of the default wma format  from the windows media player widow :
    tools >> options >> Rip Music >> under format select mp3 (theres a wav option but i used the mp3 option to be safe) 
    do not use the sync feature it will automatically convert your files to to wma (why? i dont know) instead copy the files directly from the folder that contains them :
    right click the file you need to put on the player select open file location drag and drop to the player (or copy/paste if you want).
    hope this helped =P
