Driver problems :(

  00100001 03:34 29 Dec 07

Just downgraded from vista to xp (yes thats right DOWNgraded :P ); had no problems in vista, however now when I put my mobo (asus p5b) disc in, I can't install the audio driver :(. its called a SoundMAX ADI1988 Audio Driver, when I try to install it I get a reboot but nothing changes. When I tried to do it manually (looking through the disc and finding stuff online) I get an error saying "HDA audio bus driver is required but not found". In the device manager I have no yellow things next to the things in "Sound, video and game controlers" however I do seem to have an unknown PCI device under Other Devices with a yellow "!". Under details it says "PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_284B&SUBSYS_81EC1043&REV_02\3&11583659&0&D8

Please help me, I can't live without sound :P

And also I've tried downloading a driver from ASUS and got the same "HDA audio bus driver is required but not found" error

Yea still woulndt unzip :(

but anyways I managed to fix it

So for anyone else having this issue, I found out that because I'm using SP3 (the betta) it doesn't support KB888111 (or UAA) so I downloaded KB835221 (click here) and voila! SOUND! =D
