I recently bought a new HP Pavilion g6x laptop online directly from HP's web site. I'm trying to install Windows XP on it and I've manged to get the OS installed and all the necessary drivers, but for some reason the sound driver (IDT High Definition Audio Codec) isn't working properly. The driver appears to install properly, but no sound is coming from the speakers (and Stereo Mix is missing), and what's even more strange about it is that if I reboot my laptop from Windows XP to 7 the audio stops working in Windows 7 as well almost as if the Windows XP driver is putting the sound card in some sort of strange mode. Though, completely shutting my laptop down seems to make the sound work in Windows 7 again.
I've even tried reformatting my XP partition and installing the MS UAA audio driver as a person on the HP forums had suggested in his guide.
Is there any way I can get my audio driver to work properly in Windows XP?
This is the hardware ID of my sound card if it helps: HDAUDIOFUNC_01&VEN_111D&DEV_7605&SUBSYS_103C1695&REV_1001 HDAUDIOFUNC_01&VEN_111D&DEV_7605&SUBSYS_103C1695
Also is there any way to get the screen brightness control to work in Windows XP as well?
Maybe the driver is incompatible with Windows XP , or you could of installed the wrong driver.
