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.

Conexant SmartAudio 221:

http://www.mediafire.com/?dg0cmmkm4y4

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.

(Anonymous): Audio Problems

I used your C700 downgrade method and everything worked great except for audio. I followed you directions exactly with the UAA and Conexant High Definition Audio Driver. I do have sound but there are two annoying problems:

First, I have no control over Windows sounds like the starting up and shutting down jingles. They blare at top volume no matter what I do. However, I can control the volume of programs like windows media player.

Also, the speakers don't turn off when I plug in headphones. If I plug headphones in, the sound plays simultaneously through both my speakers and the headphones which kinda defeats the purpose.

Got any ideas?

Hello,

This link has helped with alot of the setup so thanks alot. I too won't tolerate Vista and want to downgrade to XP. I am at my last gasp to get this to work or will send it back. HP Support offered no help. This linked helped with all drivers however there are so many variants of the C700 I can not get the wireless nor audio to work. Everything else works fine. Does anybody have the driver links for the C700T CTO for wireless and audio? Thanks in advance.
