That sound card is unlikely to work with xp..those are 2000 machines, and the chipsets aren't that flexible. you may need to change sound card too, to one compatible with xp(like soundblaster).

I have an HP Pavillion 305. I was told I needed an SP 2 card? Where can I find one


Where you told to install SP 2? If so service pack 2 is a free software download from Microsoft upgrade center. Do you use windows XP? Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP-2) provides an enhanced security infrastructure that defends against viruses, worms and hackers, along with increased manageability and control for IT professionals and an improved experience for users. You can get it from many places on line. Here is just one I found in a quick search. http://www.soft32.com/download_992.html

Were can i get a vidio card and sound card and ether card for a hp pavilion a305w


If you need drivers, they are available at the hp website, if your computer really doesn't have a sound card or a video card then you would need to buy them from a shop and install them inside the computer, one shop for example is www.newegg.com

If you have the devices then you need the drivers instead not something to put inside your computer.

Drivers are available on the linked page above this text.

Sound card


I was unable to locate appropriate drivers for either of the sound systems on that model from the HP website, but you should be able to get them through the Windows Update site. Just make sure you choose the Custom button (Express only looks for critical updates) and check the drivers section to see what is available for you. I know for sure the RealTek drivers are there and I would assume that the Conexant drivers are as well, so you should be covered no matter which specific hardware configuration you have.

Sound driver


I found this website:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=3801539#

You can attempt to find drivers for your sound card from there.

No sound card


Right click 'My Computer' choose Properties, Click on the hardware tab, then click Device Manager. Find your device, possibly under Multimedia Controller or Unknown device. Once you found the device that is your soundcard, right click it and choose Update Driver. Choose Advanced install and "Specify driver location" Then browse to the directory you extracted the contents of the file you downloaded from HP. Follow the prompts and if it is the correct driver you will have sound.
