Re: problem with sound drivers

I don't know if my problem was the same, but I think my sound card fried on my HP Pavillion dv4000. I tried downloading the sound driver many times but to no avail. I called HP customer tech suport and they suggested I buy a new computer. Instead, i spent $40 on a Creative Labs external sound card (X-mod, they vary in price, I think my $40 version was a refurbished E-bay purchase) and I plug that device into a USB port and now everything is golden.

I would first finish updating your laptop with all of the Windows XP Service pack updates. Here is also a link to all the drivers for your laptop. It looks like there is 3 possible sound card drivers.

There are six models of C700. Which one is yours? The models are:

» Compaq Presario C700 CTO Notebook PC

These links will take you to HP's site at the right location for the model you select. HP now supply the drivers for Compaq, so it's here you need to look.
