I installed Windows XP Professional on an HP Pavilion dv9925nr in place of Vista and have been unsuccessful at getting the sound up and running. I installed the following driver but even after reboot still have no sound:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwar...100&lang=en

In Device Manager, I also have the following non-working devices:
OHCI Complient IEEE 1394 Host Controller

Under Other Devices:
Base System Device
Modem Device On High Definition Audio Bus
Network Controller

Anyone have any suggestions?

The driver you linked to is for Vista only.

These are XP compatible drivers for your model:

Also read this, it might shed some light:

Yeah, I realized that mistake a few moments ago. After scouring the net, and installing many different drivers, I hope to prevent anyone else from making the mistake of trying to downgrade to XP from Vista with HP notebooks by reading the info in the following link:

Thanks for the reply though.

You will have to determine if you have the Conexant or RealTek audio card. The easiest way to do this is to go to Device Manager and check the Properties of the device. Go to the Details tab and look up the Hardware ID. There will be 4 characters after the VEN_ and 4 characters after the DEV_ Then, either post back with those characters - or go to http://www.pcidatabase.com and look up the device.

You can also do this with the other devices. First compare what you know with the list of HP Vista drivers ( http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwar...568&lang=en ). If that doesn't answer the question, then use the PCIDatabase to look it up.

Once that's done, we can start looking for XP compatible drivers.

Base System Device - VEN_1180 DEV_0592
Base System Device - VEN_1180 DEV_0843
Base System Device - VEN_1180 DEV_0852
Network Controller - VEN_14E4 DEV_432B

O.K. Now I just need a IEEE 1394 Firewire driver and the proper driver for my network controller.

Try this driver: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/...p;fileid=272792
It will probably also fix the Firewire driver (they have the same VEN_and DEV_ numbers)

This is a wireless driver - is this what you're trying to fix? If not, then check under Network Adapters in Device Manager to see if the wired network adapter is already there.

The other devices (VEN_1180) are Ricoh devices and are probably assoicated with media reader devices on the system. We can work on them once we've got the network drivers fixed.

That driver did not work. I got an dialog box stating that the dell driver could not be installed. I am having a difficult time finding this driver. I believe the network card to be a Broadcom 431AGN but am not 100% sure.

Is there any way to find the chip number through windows so I can search on Broadcom's site for the correct driver?

I have got most of my computer (HP Pavilion DV9925nr) downgraded from Vista to XP I just can't find the right forceware to make my graphics card or HighDef Sound card to work

Graphics shows up as VEN_10DE and DEV_0531
HighDef Sound shows up as VEN_14F1 and DEV_5051

Got any suggestions. This will have been the 8th computer i've downgraded and i'm having one heck of a time with it
