Did you install all the motherboard drivers for XP
Audio, Lan card, USB, Chipset, Video, Touch panel etc

If not you need to go to the HP site and download all the drivers for HP Pavilion 04 P7477A-ABA 751N 70000TG101MISSO listed on the site

These are the drivers, but there's no mention of a sound driver click here. I would expect to find these on the driver CD.

okay, i found out, that i had to update the sis 7012 device and not the cmedia ac97

  bioch 11:10 13 Jan 2008

o, and the hp site is of no help

See if you can identify the sound chip. It has been suggested that it might be a CS4299. If it is, we might be able to find the chip maker's driver.
