    It works when I have headphones just not my laptop speakers which is the one I need working most.
    My laptop is an hp G6-1C58CA.
    these are my hardware ids
    HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_111D&DEV_7605&SUBSYS_103C169B&REV_1001
    HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_111D&DEV_7605&SUBSYS_103C169B


    I am only able to find drivers for the following ids

    HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_111D&DEV_7605&REV_1001
    HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_111D&DEV_7605
    HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_111D
    HDAUDIO\FUNC_01

    Does anyone know if its possible to modify the drivers to work with my sound card? Or should I just bite the bullet and install win7?

    Have your speakers ever worked before? If so, you could try rolling back the driver.

    Another option is to check that the speakers are enabled in the BIOS. To access the BIOS on an HP computer:
    Shut down.
    Power on the computer and press [Esc] followed by [F10] when prompted.

    If all else fails and you are a do it yourself type, you could attempt to manually wire the speakers to your headphone jack, although it would be at your own risk.

    If it works with your headphones you could try this... Go to Control panel sound and audio... click Advanced ... and set it to laptop stereo speakers.. it's worth a try good luck...

    32 or 64 bit Windows XP? I've had issues in the past installing HD Audio drivers on 64 bit (on both a 2008 nForce 730a and a 2011 Intel H61 chipset), while the Intel chipset worked fine on 32 bit.

    If there's two audio drivers from different vendors needed, one might be enough to suffice if you're able to wire an aux cable or use headphones, though the volume output would be significantly lower...

    Given you're using a laptop, and both problem cases I had were with desktops connected over HDMI, I doubt this is much use to know though.

    (and given this very thread is on the first page for the driver info in Google, it's clearly not a common IDT model, I'd recommend taking the latest ones available for XP and adding the ID to the INF somewhere appropriately, though I can't really help with doing that)

    EDIT: I looked up your specs. You'd be better off running 7 merely because I noted you're on a 6GB Sandy Bridge laptop (funnily enough my desktop is a 4GB Sandy Bridge i5) and the RAM would end up getting wasted, plus IIRC XP x64 isn't too good for certain handling of things and has worse support than the x86 version anyway :/

    It is the 32-bit version and unfortunately the second sound driver doesn't use the speakers, its just AMD hdmi audio. (forgot to mention that it uses an AMD cpu, the A6-3400m) Oh and I know the RAM will be wasted, I have it dual-booted right now because I need one 32-bit and one 64-bit OS but I would prefer xp over 7 especially if one partition already has 7.

    Pretty much, just has an extra line.
    HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_111D&DEV_7605&SUBSYS_103C169B&REV_1001\4&2D8A4ABD&0&0001


    EDIT: So I just found out the hp website doesnt go to your specific model when you type your serial number, it just randomizes to similar models,(which I'm pretty sure could lead to people downloading the wrong bios, but whatever) the actual model is g6-1c40ca

    not an expert here, but on my dell I install my sound driver and both work, have you gone to sound in the control panel and made sure that the speakers and the headphone jacks are activated or checked?

    It may be that the speaker connection on the motherboard is broken?

    On my dell, I had to buy a separate internet card because the onboard one ceased to work, even though the rest of the integrated items are still going strong, otherwise I am at a loss as to a solution, sorry, :(

    Bite the bullet. As there are no XP drivers on HP's website for your particular model chances are slim to none that you will be able get third party drivers to work properly even if they are made for your audio chipset. I say this as someone who has been down this road a few times trying to get XP drivers to work on computers that were made to run Windows Vista and higher. There was always something that didn't work right or at all. IMO it's just not worth the frustration and wasted time.
