Your Notebook is installed with High Definition audio card which XP cannot recognize by default. Installing Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) will allow XP to recognize High Definition audio cards.

Download the Microsoft UAA drivers for Windows XP form the link:

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp33501-34000/sp33867.exe

Restart the Notebook after the UAA Drivers are installed.

Now, download Conexant High Definition Audio Drivers for your Notebook for XP :

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp34001-34500/sp34386.exe

You should be able to install the Audio Drivers without any issues.

I'm using Compaq Presario V3615 model, AMD Turion 64x2 notebook pc. I have a problem of the 'Audio Device'. I have install all the driver for the 'sound driver' and my notebook is still DON'T have the...


AS you state the "device is working properly" so it must be something else.
Try playing a music CD and if the music looks as if it is playing, it probably is and there is a mechanical problem with the headphone socket or the volume is not activated.
Check the Mixer Console by r/hand mouse click the loudspeaker icon and select Volume mixer.
Hope that fixes it

No sound after windows XP installation + realtek installation


check the series, is it really require realtek? because the driver doesn't depends on the windows XP, but the type, model and series of motherboard or chipset brand.... anyway, realtek doesnt written on the device manager, check to your control panel - sound and audio device, is all enabled?or does any volume elements are muted..
