Hm, all right. I'll take a look. I figure I'll just look the names of my devices up in windows 7, download the ones I need, put em onto my flash drive, and then install them.

Yes - I think you have download a large pack - not just individual drivers from there.

You might find them individually elsewhere.

Check Hardware Windows Updates repeatedly for drivers for your sound once you're online.

If no driver is delivered, check the Support Downloads webpage for your model here: Drivers & Downloads

There are four Conexant sound drivers for XP for your model.

You can also import any other drivers if they are newer, especially if there are any performance problems: hangs, poor resolution, etc.

Well, I tried a bunch of different drivers and couldn't seem to get any of them to work. Plus I ended up getting a BSOD a few times. So I give up, all this headache isn't worth it just to play a couple video games.

Thanks for all the help though, I really appreciate it. Perhaps all my frustration can help another person out.

Are you downloading the drivers from gregrocker's link?

Did you read the tutorials in the blue links I posted above? This will explain what needs to be done.

Consider trying your XP programs in Windows 7 Compatibility Mode or virtualizing XP using XP Mode which comes with Ultimate or Pro, or freeware like Virtual Box, Virtual Player or VM Ware. It is a lot less trouble.
