For Sound:

First, download and install Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture (UAA)
Bus Driver for High Definition Audio the following drivers :

ftp://ftp.compaq.com/pub/softpaq/sp32501-33000/sp32646.exe

Note: Please do not click on the link, just copy the entire URL and paste
it in a new window of Internet Explorer. Then open the link from there.

After installing the above link you have to restart the notebook and then
install Conexant High Definition Audio Driver from the following link :

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp34001-34500/sp34200.exe

This will create a swsetup folder in c drive ("C:\swsetup\sp34200")


Installing this driver may result in an error. But continue with the
following steps to get the audio driver installed correctly.

1. Click on Start and select Run. Now type devmgmt.msc and press enter.

2. Right click on "Audio device on High Definition Audio Bus" and click
Update driver.

3. Select "Install from a list or specific location"

4. Click Next. Then select "Don't search, I will choose the driver to
install"

5. Click Next and then select "Sound, video and game controller" from the
list.

6. Click Next and then click Have Disk.

7. Click Browse C:\swsetup\sp34200 folder and select the .inf (wis30b2a)
file and click open and Continue with the onscreen instructions.

From a comment:

FYI- For any of you downgraging a Copaq Presario C700T CTO to Windows XP, this solved my audio driver problem. I can now control the volume settings and my headphones work correctly as well.

Use this for audio.Unzip to a folder.Run installer.if it errors use device Manager
From Device Manager,right click "Audio Device on HD",choose Update driver,
No to connect,
Install from a list or specific location,
Don't search I will choose the driver to install,
In the list of common hardware types, scroll down and select Sound, Video, and Game controllers.
Remove the check from "Show Compatible Hardware" and click on "Have Disk".
Next...browse to the unzipped folder and choose the "WiSVHe5.inf".Ignore XP when it complains.
Reboot.
