Re: AUDIO and vga Drivers
The soundcard worked in Vista because it was updated with the drivers for your monitor where as Xp is very old and hence did not have the drivers.
Now what you can do is just insert the driver installation discs that you got along with your laptop and follow on screen instructions.IF you want further help regarding this let me know!
Thanks, eagle. Managed to get the necessary drivers from the LG website (use IE to view, it doesn't render properly in firefox) so sound and ethernet work fine now. The sound drivers are huge, for some reason, almost 100MB. There appears to be a problem with the wifi hardware, in that LG changed from Intel (good) to Atheros (bad). I haven't been able to test the winXP driver I got yet, but will let you all know. Don't have very high hopes for it working, having read all the other forums.
