You need to have internet connection first then go to the website http://www.windowsupdate.com and you need to update the operating system from that site. in the process of updating it there will be an option there to update it to service pack 2 already.. sometimes you need to update other things first in the same website before that option comes up.

Hi there.
Your audio is "Conexant High-Definition Audio"

Download and install this driver and see if will work as HP don't supply a driver for XP

Hi, I hold a Compaq c740tu notebooke PC with the pre installed windows vista. I face problems on running certain softwares and hence would like to downgrade to Windows XP. I managed to get almost all...


Yes do not downgrade or you Will have problems. Microsoft is planning to stop support for xp in the future and already have a new OS-7 coming out to replace vista. A lot of software that does not say it is for xp will work on vista. Just because it does not say for vista does not mean it will not work on vista. Good Luck. I love Xp too but I will not downgrade to go back because microsoft is only going to make it obsolete in the future.
please rate my thank You.

Audio driver for C740TU,compatibale with win XP sp2


Hi,

For a Compaq Presario C740TU Notebook PC running Windows XP, audio drivers would be for Conexant High-Definition Audio. Importantly, SoftPaq Number SP31994, "Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) Bus Driver for High Definition Audio," (or later) must be installed on the notebook before installing SP32823.
  • sp31994.exe 1/1 (6.12M) (ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp31501-32000/sp31994.exe)
  • sp32823.exe 1/1 (6.12M) (ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp32501-33000/sp32823.exe)
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

You have to download XP drivers from the manufacturer's website. This normally happens because your harware was designed for the new OS(Vista).

Just go to hp.com and search for the model of your Laptop.
