I bought my computer and it came with Windows Vista Basic and i decided i hated it. So i formated it and installed XP using my brother's xp cd. i'm going to end up purchasing a new xp cd anyway because the product key is already in use but i ran into another problem. Before i purchase xp I want to fix my audio problem. I noticed that there was no audio on my computer though there are codecs and legacy audio drives and what not in the device manager. However there is a long drop down section of question marks that are unrecognized and are having problems. I've only been able to fix one of the several problems here but the rest just say they can't install the drivers needed. I believe my audio problem lies here and i need to know if it will be possible to run XP now that i have a computer that had Vista preinstalled. Thanks. I also can't get a hold of service pack 2 because of the lack of windows activation. is it possible that service pack 2 will allow for the installation of the hardware?
