You can try this:

- HP puts all their system driver software including the sound drivers in a folder called "C:\SwSetup". Do you still have that folder ? Or on a XP backup ?

If the HP site does not work go to AMD.

I tried the ATI driver from the site, still not 100% so uninstalled and tried the 2nd display driver Nvidia but that is showing a prompt which states:

 

The Nvidia setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware.

 

You mentioned the AMD site, any particular driver there you can link me to please?

Download the AMD driver detect software. I have used it with good results. Let is scan your hardware and it will give you the recommended downloads.

It shows it cannot find a driver for this hardware as this operating system may not be supported.

 

Ok, so I am guessing nothing else can be done except to revert back to XP now?

I uninstalled the ATI to try the NVidia so right now no display driver is installed.

Can you pull the Hardware and Vendor ID for the graphics chipset in Device Manager? Is Vista 32bit or 64bit?

 

Download CPUz. What is the chipset listed and southbridge under Mainboard. Also what is listed under graphics?

It's vista 32 but I am not understanding how to get a "graphics chipset" in the DM since no display driver is installed?

 

CPU-Z shows:

 

Chipset ATI  Xpress 200 [RS480] Rev. 10

Southbridge ATI SB400  Rev.00
