I got my HP Mini 110-3735DX netbook just now which I will be using for college. Its OS was Windows 7 Starter, but since I take my computer as a personal possession in a whole new level, I changed the OS into Windows XP Pro. The problem is, the sound does not work anymore. The Everest Home Edition mentioned that an Intel 82801GBM as a high-definition audio device with the Windows 7, but with the Windows XP installed, it reports IDT as its high-definition audio. I wanted to install the Intel one but I can't find the Intel drivers, while the IDT refuses to install. When I tried searching for the driver using the Windows Update, Windows found it and installed it but only with a Code 10 which says that the device cannot start.
I feel bad about this so kindly help me about this matter. Thanks in advance.
Find out the Problem Please !!!
It happens that some computers can only work best with the recent version of the operating systems, and your case could just be one of them. Especially the latest computer brands that are in the market, you will that most of them will only work best with windows vista, windows 7 and the most recent windows 8. When you install XP on them, it might install successfully but then there will be challenges with the drivers like the one that you experiencing right now.
So I will suggest that you reinstall windows but then use the ultimate version that comes with all features. Though it may seem like hard when you start using it, I promise you will have fun using windows 7 as compared to XP. It has a lot of features and capabilities that you will for sure like.
