After I down graded Windows Vista Business to Windows XP Pro, I my laptop can't play Video and Audio

Hi amkuselley...
You need to reinstall the XP video/audio drivers
Go to your laptop manufacture's website, click on support and it will guide you to the site to download the video/audio drivers for your computer...
Sorry I cannot give you the webpage to download your drivers from because you did not tell me the make and model of your laptop...
Please take time to rate me

  • Double click on Device Manager
  • Open the Sound, Video and Game Controllers by clicking on it
  • Right click on your sound card, choose Uninstall

Windows BSOD on all restarts, even in Safe Mode and even if I start with video in VGA mode. Stop code is 0x0000007E plus four more codes in parentheses. During Safe Mode restart the last file to appear on...

7E is a memory issue or general driver fault. It's windows way of saying "i dunno it just died". If you have Dell diagnostics, run a full system check, to ensure the hardware is ok. If you get no errors, then you have a driver fault in windows. This is From Microsoft:
If the following conditions are true, the issue might be a hardware incompatibility with Windows XP because all the installed drivers are Windows XP drivers:
  • You receive the STOP 0x7E error when you first start the computer.
  • You receive the STOP 0x7E error after you run the Setup program.
  • You did not install any third-party drivers during the installation of Windows.
However, if you receive the STOP 0x7E error after you upgrade from Windows 2000 Professional, or if you recently added a new hardware device, this issue might be an incompatible driver or an incompatible hardware device.
Basically, the 7E error is a defective driver. You will likely have to get your computer recovered by a professional shop, or if you have nothing important on it, attempt to reformat and reinstall. It is unfair that Windows has borked your computer and they wont fix it. I hope I was able to at least point you in the right direction.

Go to Lenovo's support site on another unit, enter the model of your unit (it's on the bottom of the laptop) and download the drivers for the items XP didn't have drivers for.
It's not uncommon these days to have very few drivers provided by the operating system.
No worries.
Good luck
