Sound problem after upgrading to XP SP2 (laptop)

Recently I upgraded the laptop to XP Service Pack 2 and just found out that my audio no longer works. "Sounds and Audio Devices Properties" in Control Panel displays that there is no audio device. The thing is that before I installed SP2, the sound works just fine so I'm positive it's not the problem of the speakers or BIOS. (the computer is not on mute, for sure.)

I tried looking for the audio driver to install but I did not find it for this particular model on the sony site. This is a second-hand laptop that was orignally purchased about 2 years ago.

Thanks in advance. (:

Unfortunately you did not give more information, so I 'm taking a wild guess here. If this solution does not solve you problem, let me know.

If you are running Windows XP SP1 or SP2, update the operating system to XP Service Pack 3 for best WPA/WPA2 support.

XP Service Pack 1 computers do not support WPA by default and cannot support WPA2. To upgrade an XP SP1 computer to support WPA (but not WPA2), either
  • install the "Windows XP Support Patch for Wi-Fi Protected Access" (link) from Microsoft, or
  • upgrade the computer to XP SP2
XP Service Pack 2 computers by default support WPA but not WPA2.

To upgrade an XP SP2 computer to also support WPA2, install the "Wireless Client Update for Windows XP SP2" (link) from Microsoft.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

I have a 54g MaxPerformance 802.11g adapter which came with my compaq presario. My wireless network worked with WEP but won't with this computer using WPA2. I think I need to update the driver. Which one...


I do not believe that updating the driver for your network card will solve the problem, although you should always install the newest one for best operation. You can go to Compaq's support page here and see if there is an update available for your model.

If WEP worked for you and WPA doesn't, then it is an encryption problem. Encryption happens on a different layer than the driver, which simply makes your Operating System work with your hardware.

If you are running Windows XP SP1 or SP2, update the operating system to XP Service Pack 3 for best WPA/WPA2 support.

XP Service Pack 1 computers do not support WPA by default and cannot support WPA2. To upgrade an XP SP1 computer to support WPA (but not WPA2), either
  • install the "Windows XP Support Patch for Wi-Fi Protected Access" (link) from Microsoft, or
  • upgrade the computer to XP SP2

Sorry to inform you but you cant downgrade from vista to xp on this model I have found most systems that are designed to run vista lose several drivers when downgraded to xp.

the only solution that will restore drivers would be to reload vista by purchasing an upgrade version of vista (this allows an upgrade from xp to vista and will restore drivers only catch is your xp operating system must be xp home with sp2(service pack 2).

When you removed vista from your machine you actually downgraded by replacing the vista operating system with XP.

You should install service pack 2, the go to the m-audio site and upgrade the drivers again. Also, since your computer most likely have a 4 pin firewire, make sure you have the power cqble for the 410 connected. Ofcourse, do not have the 410 connected when upgrade either sp2 or the drivers. make sure you power cycle both devices before reconnecting and attempting to record....

keep me posted...

Product key


The product key has to match the CD. In other words, an OEM XP sticker found on a computer case requires an OEM XP CD with the same Service Pack level and version. An Upgrade CD won't work with an OEM serial #. OEM Home SP1 Sticker = OEM Home SP1 CD OEM Professional SP2 Sticker = OEM Professional SP2 CD Yes, it can be a pain getting the two to match up since most of the stickers I've seen do not indicate whether they are SP1 or SP2.
