OK ! As far as I can tell, (hopefully) you have installed corrupted audio drivers for the laptop. Its an issue that I have come accross 1 month ago. I fixed it by doing the following...

Installing the latest audio drivers for the downgrade of XP.
Installing the latest audio/video codecs for Windows XP.
Installing the latest Direct X redistribute
Uninstalling the windows update:MSWindowsHighDefinitionAudio

These three (Audio/Video Codecs, Audio Drivers and Direct X) are responsible for "decoding" your Movies and Music. If they are outdated or their host application is corrupt, they can cause sum grief to your multimedia.

Also, a very rare issue could be that you're selected (If you are using Windows Media Player 9-11) the speed settings. It could be that the speed settings are set to low. To troubleshoot this, simply download and install 3party apps like WINAMP (for audio) and VLC / VLan Player (for Video) and open your music or video with either one of the mentioned apps...

    You'll get the latest Codex pack (audio/video) here:

    Now the XP audio drivers is an issue. Download and install this program: Unknown devices: . With that program you can find out which audio drivers your machine needs.After successful driver identification, please feel free to send me the "audio driver vendor" details so that I can find you the download link for the drivers

    Kind Regards,

  • Stefan Groevens Apr 18, 2008

    Please uninstall all the previous audio drivers and codecs and restart your machine. Also, if you have a registry repair tool for windows Vista installed, you could run a repair just after you've restarted before installing these new ones...

    rem: for each download open in seperate window/tab so that you dont have to navigate back...

    Download l8est Vista Codecs from >>>here<<<

    Download l8est Vista Sound drivers for your LT >>>here<<<

    Download l8est Vista DirectX >>>here<<<

    Please let me know if the solution worked or if a link failed...

    Kind Regards,

You may need to check to see which "service pack" you are currently on.

See below requirements:

System Software — Windows XP & Vista
  • Windows Vista Business or Ultimate Edition
    • 32-bit OS Installation Only
  • Windows XP Professional or Home Edition
    • With Windows XP Service Pack 2 or Service Pack 3

  • Not Supported:
    • Windows Vista 64-bit (any version)
    • Windows XP Professional x64 Edition
    • Windows XP Media Center Edition
    • Windows 98, Me, 2000, NT, 95, 3.1, DOS

  • Not Tested:
    • Windows Vista Home and Home Premium Edition
    • Although Windows Vista Home and Home Premium Edition have not been tested or qualified by Digidesign, there are currently no known issues with Vista Home and Home Premium 32-bit operating systems and Pro Tools M-Powered 7.4 compared to the supported Windows Vista Business or Ultimate Edition operating systems.

Windows Vista SP1
There are currently no known issues with Service Pack 1 for Windows Vista based on our initial limited testing and customer feedback. Although full qualification with all Digidesign products has not been completed, we do not recommend against updating to SP1, given the number of important overall system fixes in SP1. We do recommend that you backup your system and create a restore point before updating to SP1, should you encounter any problems after installing the update.

Downgrade Acer M1641 from Vista home premium to Windows XP

Its a driver incompatibility issue. Many hardware components designed for Vista are incompatible with XP. This means that the Realtek audio driver may be the Vista version. Also, some hardware has of yet no XP drivers, so your audio components were designed for Vista only.
While it may be possible to "force" the driver to work, it may involve a number of hacks to the Windows registry and other files.

I have only some Questions...what is the name of AMILO desktop Pi 3630?...can i change my hardware from vista to exp proffetional sp3?

Hi! What do you mean by what is the "name" of the amilo? It is a fujitsu siemens brand or you ment something else? As for downgrade, you can downgrade vista to xp if you got pro/ultimate of vista, if it came with vista home however, then you won't manage to do that. As for your hardware, well there speaks nothing against downgrading to xp as long as you have the xp drivers for your hw. You may run into audio problems though under xp sp3 if you are using the default hw setup of amilo. Please provide a full detail of your hw if you want to know whether all your hw has drivers for xp sp3. Let me know if this answered your questions :)

I have a toshiba satellite a205-5000 laptop it came with Vista, I want to put XP Pro instead, but it doesn't find the drive when you install. What do I need to do?

Hi, its because its a new laptop, you have a sata hard drive in the laptop which requires sata drivers to install older versions like windows xp, only problem is none of the companys are releasing the drivers to put xp on them, so im afraid your stuck with vista on it. due to the sata hard drive.

All the best

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.
