Hey,

I have no sound on my Windows Vista and XP Dual Boot PC.

I have tried to install the drivers for the sound but it comes up with an error.

Thanks

It isn't a Windows Error. Its an error which is by the driver installation.

What does this error actually say?

Are you sure you're not trying to install a Vista driver in XP (or vice-versa).

If you go on This Link, It comes up with a page with 4 OSes on (Windows Vista, Windows Vista [64-bit], Windows XP and Windows 2000). I click on the Windows XP page and then on the 'Conexant Audio Driver (32-bit)'. When I go to install it it comes up with an error about MEDIA not being found. "'Driver Installation Failed: Could not find the MEDIA device for this driver".

This error indicates that the installation routine for the drive was not able to locate the hardware. Try looking in Device Manager to see if there's any unknown/unidentified devices there. If you find any, right click on them and select Properties, then click on the Details tab, then on Hardware ID in the dropdown box. It should be in this format "PCI\VEN_4444&DEV_0016&SUBSYS_40090070&REV_01"

The 4 numbers/letters after the first _ are the Vendor ID; the 4 numbers/letters after the second _ are the Device ID.
Go to this website ( http://www.pcidatabase.com/ ) and enter the Vendor ID into the Vendor Search box. In the next page, click on the link for the vendor of that device. In the next page, search for the Device ID and let us know what it says.

In some cases, the installation of the UAA (Universal Audio Architecture) drivers will fix this issue.

Here's a link to the HP version: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/generic...item=pv-22533-1
Here's a link to the Compaq version (much larger than the HP version for some reason): http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwar...228&lang=en
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

I don't understand what you mean.

Did you find the hardware ID, which will look like this:

PCI\VEN_4444&DEV_0016&SUBSYS_40090070&REV_01

If so, post it back here.
