Yes, you can no longer downgrade, the issue is drivers and hardware. XP cannot run the new hardware. In the early days you could get drivers, but now most downgrades will lack lots of functionality. Reinstall Win 7, it works very well, once your files are PROPERLY placed.

Laptop not show cd or dvd when i put it


Well, for starters, is your cd/dvd turned on in the bios.  Some but not all computer have a setting for this.  If your cd/dvd drive is removable, shut down the computer, remove the drive.  Reboot the computer and shut it down again.  Then reconnect the drive and start the computer back up.  This will make sure that if your drive is working, windows will redetect it.  You can check device manager to make sure it is not disabled.  If none of this works, you may have a bad drive.  If you really must reinstall windows, you can get an external cd/dvd drive pretty cheap on Ebay.  Just make sure you go into your BIOS setting and change the boot menu to external drive.  I hope this information helps.

No sound


Do you have the original CD which came with this Laptop?
Because you need to load the Audio divers.
If you don't have the CD then you need to go to the HP website and download the sound card drivers.

Dvd drive


You might try unistalling the drivers and reinstalling them from the device manager. However, this sounds like a harware issue, your DVD drive may be shot.
