    G'day, my mate gave me his laptop to speed it up a bit so I decided to format it with XP as it couldn't handle Vista very well.

    I cannot find any drivers that will suit the audio device, I've installed multiple different drivers but none of them work and most of them return with the error:

    The laptop is a Compaq Presario C700 model.

    "Driver Installation Failed: Could not find the MEDIA device for this driver."

    Device instance ID:

    HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_14F1&DEV_5045&SUBSYS_103C30D9&REV_1001\4&2636A2&0&0001

    Can someone please suggest something I am out of ideas. :(

    Chris
