    I take it your getting your drivers from here :http://h18007.www1.hp.com/support/fi...64_6295.html#6

    Also check that you have the correct os version (e.g not x64 xp edition)?

    mite be worth havin a venture into device manager and "update"-ing driver on audio or something that looks likely with the warning triangle on there. You'll need the .inf file from the driver tho, and need to locate it

    Best way I would suggest is extract the exe you download from HP ( using winzip or winrar ) and install them manually from the device manager... This way if its missing something, it will more than lkely ask you for the file ( giving you more of a clue as to what its looking for )..

    When installing from device manager, point the location to this folder ( \sp32906\SMAXWDM\W2K_XP ).. As you can see form the pic, the HDA driver is in there..

    www.astracoupeturbo.co.uk/sp32906.zip - you will need to extract the file ( windows xp does this just right click on it and choose "extract files" )

    File is now uploaded...
