Re: sound driver installation
Assuming you got them from the link below, there are 2 bios versions, you may have the wrong, one, or your sound chip is damaged, if so either you will have to purchase a pci sound card or a new board.

You will need to install the proper driver for your system. since you have not mentioned the make/model it is important to either install from your back the audio drivers after installation of the Windows Xp. If you do not have them , then you must search for the drivers which are compatible with your motherboard. normally these are all free downloads and you can search for them on net. Download and install. Your sound should be back to normal now. Hope this helps. Good day
Go to Compaq site, and check if there are drivers for win xp. Mind that xp does not include drivers for the most recent hardware. Have you tried installing sp2 and sp3? These carry more recent drivers than SP1 and older vesions. And if there are no drivers for xp, you are stuck with vista.
If it is on board sound you probably need the M/soft UAA drivers
