I did a restore on my computer (ibm kdvpn7h) and reloaded Windows XP home edition using restore disks and it states that there is no audio drivers and I have tried for days to figure it out, but can't.

Find a friend with either a "retail" Windows XP Home Edition CD-ROM disk,
or with an 'OEM' ("original equipment manufacturer") equivalent.
Use that disk, plus the 25-character product-key on the label on the side of your computer,
to reinstall Windows, or first to try to "repair" your installed copy of Windows.
Or, if you have a "brand-name" computer (Dell, HP, IBM, Lenovo, Acer, Gateway, eMachines)
telephone the manufacturer, and order a replacement "System Restore" set of CD-ROM disks.
Probably about $20, plus $20 for overnight-courier.
vswright is right, you have to make a restore disk when you are happy that that system is running properly (this called system back up and restore) go to the HP support website (HP now own Compaq) and enter the make and model of the pc and download the device drivers you need, if you experience any problems, get back to us
If you use his disk, that will be better, because if it is original HP disk, it should install all original drivers at all, however this may delete all files on the computer depending on the type of installation you do.
Installing an older version of XP home does not make a big difference , as windows will update the system using automatic updates. What must be done, is ensuring that all proper drivers are installed.
Check device manager, in control panel/system, and see if all devices are installed with proper drivers.
You're really unclear on which machine you need the driver for, so, the first link is the drivers for the Presario sr1610nx, and the second link is for the drivers for the c783tu. If you're loading XP into a c700 you may need to search driverguide.com for the audio driver, search by the make and model of the sound card.
