After searching for an hour there are no diversfor your models sound card that support XP your only two options are:

A) Run Vista

B) Purchase an external usb sound device and disable your on board sound card. Here is a link to some:

Cut and paste in your address bar to check out some external sound cards.
Hope this helps you out. I know its not what you wanted to hear but it's true. Please take a second to rate this fixya for the hour I spent frantically searching for a driver for you, Thanks

Promblem in installation of Audio Driver of Compac presario C707TU


Check the Compaq/HP WEB site - download the latest drivers for the Windows version you are using. Sometimes the latest one does not work but the previous one will work. (I've come across this problem before and it is not confined to Compaq/HP)

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.

Unable to install Audio driver


In the control panel sound icon, are the drivers correct? OR Try uninstalling SP3 if yuu have done so and then reinstall the driver. Have you deleted the device in the <device manager> and let windows find the device and install drivers?

Unable to install Audio driver


If your CD Driver is not working, try researching it in the internet. Go to the Compaq website and type your laptop model so it will find the right driver for your laptop. Once you find it, download and try to install it.

I think you must try to install realtek audio driver coz it works for most of the speakers.And if that doesn't work PLEASE check that your spekers are intalled properly.And please first completely remove the previous audio drivers.
