Re: Problem With XP Drivers

Actually downgrading from vistas to Xp is not supported these days in the new laptops.
1. If you dont have driver setup for XP. You can try to get the driver setup for other Lenovo models models with a Hit and Trial method.
2. Alternatively you try to find out the video card of the laptop..Nowadays laps are mostly with Nvidia. Nvidia gives driver for all Os. so try to download from the Nvidia Site. it also has a automatic video card detetection software. run it to get the exact drive.
3. For audio might be a High definition audio ... so download the Universal audio architecture from the URL or try google for UAA of lenovo.
then try to download a sound driver like conexant high defintion audio driver.
4. while installing the sound driver it might show u that "media for the device not found" in that case open device manager and install the driver from device manager.

5. last option lenovo now offers a Downgrade to XP CD... for more details log onto ..

HOpe to get rated as helpful.

No sound

Go to Compaq site, and check if there are drivers for win xp. Mind that xp does not include drivers for the most recent hardware. Have you tried installing sp2 and sp3? These carry more recent drivers than SP1 and older vesions. And if there are no drivers for xp, you are stuck with vista.
