Kai, go control panel, system, hardware tab, device manager. u will prob find a yellow question mark or two. click on that device, go up to action, install new driver. u have the choice of downloading a new one from the web, or installing one that u have on cd or floppy. u can usually dl the latest from hte device manuf website also. u can also try the windows defaults, but obviously in this case they were not suitable. but your display should have a driver cd packaged with it.....

If you have a low cost LCD screen, that might be the best it can do. I found that out the hard way.

sure.
it seems that you did not use the origenal recovery disc or partition (from HP)to reinstall your system, in most case, win-xp dosenot include the drivers of HP computer. you can go to the HP's website to download the drivers.graphic card,sound card, NIC,modem,eventhough chip driver.

use your comp model to search the drivers suit to you.

if you cannot find the driver from hp website, you'd better ask a friend help you. if you really want to do it by yourself,the following suggestion is not warrantee under this situation,but you can try to

1,try to download this file SP26412.exe from following address
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib/software4/COL9496/pv-25722-1/
double click it than choose save it, make sure open your virus scanner.
if this file is the driver you need . you are lucky.

2,use device manager update your sound card driver, select 'connect to windows update' to allow search from internet.

3, if the recovery patition is still in your hard drive, right click it and use "explore' open it(donot double click it,sometimes can openned), under 'hp' folder you may find the driver.

good luck

Check one other thing first:

Make sure the audio mixer isn't set with the sound all the way down. One program I installed (I forget which) did that during the installation.
