Right click on “My Computer” or “Computer” on Vista. Select “Manage” On the next screen select “Disk Management” In the lower middle section you should be able to find your drive. It will show up as Disk 1 or Disk 2….depending on how many drives you have in your computer. If you click on the area that says Disk # you should get and option to “initialize drive”. Also to the right it should show the allocation information for the drive. If it says “unallocated” then the drive needs to be partitioned. Right click on the white box next to the drive listing. Select the option “New Partition” This will bring up the partition wizard and you will need to step through this process. Select a primary partition. On the next screen accept the maximum size it will provide. On the next screen you assign a drive letter. On the next screen you will do the format and accept the default settings. The formatting will start and will be busy until it is complete. You can monitor this from the disk management window.

If you scanner only has Win XP drivers, then you have only two choices as those drivers wont work on WIN 7. One is to buy a new scanner, as you have already suggested. The other is to create a virtual machine, load WIN XP onto it, and then install the scanner drivers on the virtual machine. This should work fine as I do it for a piece of software that only works on WIN XP, however it is a bit of a inconvenience to use.
Right click on My Computer, choose Manage. Window opens, choose Services and Applications/Services. Look for Background Intelligent Transfer Services in the middle. Right click, choose Properties. Make it say, Automatic (delayed). Choose Apply. If it is not already running, click Start. Choose OK/Close or whatever. Close the Manage window. Reboot the computer. Good luck.
This is another tough one. Since GW does not have Win XP drivers available for your system, it will be difficult to find a sound driver that will work. You could try to use the Vista driver, but I would be skeptical that it will work to use that driver because of the way that sounds are processed in Vista/Win 7. You didn't mention why you did the downgrade, but if it was performance related, Win 7 should work fine with your system. If there was a certain program etc., that you need, there is another option. There are many USB soundcards that will will work well with Win XP, and they should not have the XP problem since their hardware is designed to work with XP. Note: If you go this route, make sure you choose one that is Win XP compatible. One other thing on this option, though. Your internal speakers may not route sound through the USB soundcard, which would mean then that you would need external speakers to get sound. I understand that may be a deal-breaker, which is why I would (unless you specifically need XP) either go back to Vista or upgrade to Win 7. Some version of Win 7 feature "XP mode" which allows you to run programs in a virtual Win XP environment. I have not had perfect luck getting XP programs to work, but it's worth a try.
So - if I got it right - you've bought the installation disk and you didn't pass the validation on the manufacturer's website or so... Or you don't have the right product key to fully install it... You're not the only one in such a situation. Unfortunately there's no other solution but to go to a certified store/online store and to buy THE REAL SOFTWARE. For the version [counterfeited...!] that you've bought nobody will be able to get you the right key. Even if you will report the situation to the manufacturer...!
Try to return the CD/DVD to the seller and if you paid for it ask for a full reimbursement.
The Audio driver has little to do with the OS (Operating System- windows) It is a board fixture or a hardware addition, and therefore requires teh drivers as supplied by the manufacturer of the equipment. Find out the name of the component or the motherboard and either google it for its drivers or go to the manufactures website and look under support for the drivers you need.
By the way, its not very clever to make abreviations in two letter words!
