I bought a HP Pavilion dv2620us Laptop recently, the laptop came with a preloaded Windows VISTA, Some how I did not find VISTA amusing from day one. I wanted to go back to my reliable windows XP, So went on to find out about drivers fro mXP. To my horror, HP did not provide drivers for Windows XP.
I went on finding the hardware specification for my model ie Sound card Name version..Graphics card details and finally was able to get all drivers for XP 🙂 . Now here comes the sad part. After installation the screen looks pathetic even with proper driver Display aint correct, it simply looks bleak. It looks very good on VISTA. Then Sound is good but non of short cut keys work in XP. Moreover even if i connect headphone jack speaker doesnt turnoff 🙁 .
Not a good XP experience.By the time I realised it is not going to pleasurable, I had gotten used to VISTA, after few pathces and updates VISTA doesnt give me blue screen errors/anything. So HP and Microsoft forced me into using Windows VISTA. A shrewd strategy on part of Microsoft(I hate it).
Im currently eagerly awaiting the arrival of Windows VISTA SP1.

Hey, I have a similar problem. Any ideas on how I can get my headphone jacks to work? There aren’t any drivers for them as far as I’ve searched…
Thanks a lot 🙂
(btw, my Vista to XP experience has actually been very good except for this problem :D)
Erm i disagree, I had Vista on HP but different i think later model, and of course i had difficulty getting all the software/drives for my hardware but managed it, all left is now wireless and tv card but thats easy just dont want to open it up/ Everything works fine and great, plus if u want media center there is one for xp not as advanced looking but very similar. O and blue screen when u install xp is u have to change bios settings it works.

Nice work! I’ll have to do a cross post on this one 😉
Thank you for your help!
Hi, i also used the sp36090.exe but it didn´t work, i dont know why , i had to install in a certain order all the drivers again or only run tahat driver ?
Thank you! you’re the man! I’m still having trouble with the audio drivers but still looking! Thanx again!
Thank you very much for the big driver file! =D
For those who can’t install the sound driver, i found the solution…
Extract the files from ‘sp32823_Conexant driver.exe’, then edit the file named ‘wis30B2a.inf’.
Locate ‘[Conexant]’ and replace the line with the following:
%HdAudioFunctionDriver.Waikiki5047.DeviceDesc% = HdAudModel,HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_14F1&DEV_5045&SUBSYS_103C30D6
Save it and execute the ‘setup.exe’.
