    You can probably pick up the audio drivers by running Windows Update in the custom mode and download and install all critical and hardware updates listed

    @tmagic
    fyi... this driver is an issue as the OP chose to downgrade Vista to XP

    @genekle
    Try this
    > Download the Conexant High Definition SmartAudio 221 driver for XP and extract the files

    Next edit the .inf file to add your device (The .inf file tells Windows which devices are suitable matches for the driver)
    • Click Start->Run, enter notepad
    • File->Open and browse to the extracted file WiSVHe5.inf. Scroll the file down a bit and you'll see
      Code:
      [Conexant]
      %HdAudioFunctionDriver.Hermosa5051.DeviceDesc% = HdAudModel,HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_14F1&DEV_5051&SUBSYS_103C30CD
      %HdAudioFunctionDriver.Hermosa5051.DeviceDesc% = HdAudModel,HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_14F1&DEV_5051&SUBSYS_103C30D6
    • Now copy the line below and then just paste/append it to add your device to the list
      Code:
      %HdAudioFunctionDriver.Hermosa5051.DeviceDesc% = HdAudModel,HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_14F1&DEV_5051&SUBSYS_103C30CF
    • Save the file and then try running Setup file and installing the driver
    I forget the base driver i used last time but think this should work

    Works great, THANK YOU so very much, will make several back ups this time. So if one gets lost I will have back ups at other places. Could you help me find the drivers for my vedio card ? Here is the info from unknown device identifer.

    HP Pavilion dv6809wm Entertainment Notebook PC

    Nvidia C67 [GeForce 7150m / nForce 630m]

    I have tried several places, also 1 of them being Nvidia.

    Went to HP and tried to download graphic drivers but got an error message saying that it only works on Vista not xp pro.

    Found one of your other post about vedio cards and such. Here is the info you requested in that post.

    [B]IEEE 1394/Firewire port[/B]

    And i happened to find this
    Use it to download the chipset and graphics. You can try quick launch as well

    I wouldn't think their method for audio would work for you without my edit (but, in any case, you have both approaches now)

    I don't think a compatible Firewire driver exists for you computer under XP (but you probably can do without a 1394/firewire port i'll guess)
