    I Have a HP Pavilion 503w running Windows XP Pro. I formatted the hard drive but the sound didn't install. I don't have the disk that came with the computer. I have went to Driverguide.com Intel website and just about all the sites that have the driver. I download the drivers and open with them with WinZip from all these sites and none have an exe file that will install the driver.I need Intel 82801 DB (M) ic4 (-M) AC97 Audio driver.
    Help

    Here is a link for the intel audio driver for the 845chipset boards. Note you need to install your chipset drivers prior to installing the sound driver.
    Sound driver
    Generally when you install an os, you need to install in this order.
    1 Install the os
    2 Update to the latest service pack; for xp sp3
    3 Install chipset driver
    4 Install sound, nic drivers as necessary
    5 Install video driver last
