    So, I installed Windows XP on this old HP laptop I was given. It works fine and everything, but I don't have any drivers, so the only things that work are the screen, track pad, and keyboard.

    How would one go about installing the correct audio drivers if no audio card is detected?

    Installing the WLAN driver was really easy because it says the exact radio model I needed drivers for. With audio, it's a different story.

    I checked their site and found my model. The only thing they have is the WLAN driver, which I already have. If I change the OS to Vista, it has the audio driver, but none for XP.

    Okay, I got it to work. I installed the XP home edition drivers from the HP site and it worked. Thanks Elizabeth! You were a tremendous help because I had no idea HP let you download drivers from their site.
