Under Vista or XP if you go under the System Tools folder from All Programs then Accessories then System Tools it will tell you who made what on your system. There is a free tool that can also scan the system and tell you more it's called Belarc Advisor

http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html

Also note you're XP sound driver might work on the Vista box. Check the Manufacturer of your MOBO (motherboard) first. Use the tools above.

You need to get the sound driver from the manufacturer of your computer/ motherboard.

Z-5300 speaker no sound


You need to install the sound drivers for your PC. go to the manufacturers website, (ex.www.hp.com) and go to the support section, sometimes called downloads also. It will prompt you for your model of PC and what Operating System ( XP,Vista,etc..) and then it will list the drivers that are available. you should update anything in "DeviceManager" that has anything except the "+" sign beside it.

Transcent JFV30 Pendrive Driver


Hi,

There are no drivers required to detect and access a flashdrive or even a Transcend PenDrive JFV30 under Windows XP or Vista. They are however needed for other Operating System such as Windows 98. Should this be the case, the drivers may be found here. If under XP or Vista, the pendrive could not be accessed/detected, then it is not the pendrive's drivers (or lack thereof) that should be the concern, it is the USB interface/drivers of the PC. Vista has been known to have major issues with USB and has issued a patch/upgrade/update here. XP SP1 has its own issues and the Microsoft patch/upgrade/update is here.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

good luck and kind regards.

HP DESKTOP COMPUTER #SR1365CL


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.

KWorld ATSC 310U on Windows Vista 32bit Problems


Hi, the real problem here is VISTA, despite Microsofts hoopla this program is not as good as faithful old XP. The driver base is almost empty and a whole host of software and hardware just will not work with it. I reccomend you go back to XP until Microsoft releases a service pack with driver updates and then upgrade to VISTA. Regards mistyman
