Laptop originally running Vista. new HDD formatted and installed XP Pro SP 2. Installed all updates including SP3 Laptop HP Compaq CQ60 f.24

No audio sound. Device manager showing two unknown devices in yellow and "properties" showing a chinese translation of english which was difficult to read as the device name. Eventually I discovered that it was Audio Device on High Defination Bus. Anyway after a great deal of time and work I think i managed to establish the drivers for the device,(Conexant ) but decided to check some more before downloading.

Then discovered that High Defination audio needs a Microsoft Universal Audio Architecure. None on my OS. Found the link & download for this and. Although the download was specified for XP PRO it was stopped because of the original Vista OS. It appears that this is the only download available. Beneath the text box advising download will be stopped was ((vista)) underlined in blue as in a link. Dont know if I could have chosen this link and continued with the download?????????

Apparently it was available in a microsoft update patch but even if I found the patch I think the outcome would still be the same. It would still be stopped because of the original Vista OS.

Could you advise where i could get a download for microsoft UAA . Thanks

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
