    You obviously didn't look very well, I found everything in 90 seconds
    These links tell you everything about your HP computer
    and how to configure the HD audio:
    http://tinyurl.com/423pka
    http://tinyurl.com/3zhmkg
    http://tinyurl.com/5xeplv

    But first the simple process of installing the driver.


    Your HP has the onboard Realtek HD audio chipset, this is the download site:

    http://tinyurl.com/5gy4rb
    Scroll down to: Vista Driver (32/64 bits) driver only (ZIP File)
    Click on it to download, select where to save to (Desktop)
    the download will self extract and create a folder on Desktop
    Open the downloaded folder
    It will contain many entries
    You only double click the Setup executable (don't click anything else)
    (It maybe named setup.exe, or if icon view, it will just be
    named: SetUp)
    The setup executable will now install the contents of the folder
    You maybe required to click to agree a license.
    Once installation is complete, close all open windows
    You will now have audio

    Yep, you're right. Are you suggesting the OP won't be able to suss
    that from the same download site just below the Vista link, is the
    XP download link? I'll think he'll figure it out.
