Hi..Thanks for the above're really a life saver! I have an issue though, my laptop is a 5735, but I can't seem to find the sound drivers. I downloaded and installed the Realtek Audio drivers for XP but no sound comes out. I'm just wondering what else I need to install...Please help me out. Thanks

And many other visitors said that they have a problem with their laptop sound after install Windows XP SP2. If you have the same problem, please follow the steps below:

How to Fix Crackling & Popping Sound Problem on Your PC:

Step 1 :
Uninstall any audio drivers and Microsoft UAA (kb888111) - if it's installed....

Step 2:
Click Start > Run... > type devmgmt.msc > press Enter
On Device Manager, please uninstall (right click > select Uninstall) a PCI device marked as unknown (e.g. With a '!' or maybe Yellow question mark)
And then Restart your laptop.

Step 3:
Windows will ask you to install automatically the drivers for Microsoft UAA Bus.
Cancel it and install this kb888111 - Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) High Definition Audio (Download for XP SP2)
Restart your laptop

For Windows XP SP3 users, please read this (Install Microsoft (UAA) High Definition Audio class on Windows XP SP3)

Step 4:
After laptop restarted, Windows will once more ask you to install automatically the drivers for Microsoft UAA Bus, let Windows install it automatically, and then please install the sound driver (e.g. Realtek Sound Driver)
