Hi, I just reformatted my HP pavilion computer and reinstalled windows xp professional. I was able to install my intel graphics drivers but I can't seem to find my sound drivers.

in my control panels, i just see this:

What is the model # of your HP Pavilion computer? Have you checked HP's site for the audio drivers?

hp pavilion 752n

yes i checked and it turns out that I need the AC'97 Audio Codecs which i downloaded here: http://www.realtek.c...p;GetDown=false

however, every time i try to install them, I get the blue screen of death and my computer has to restart.

EDIT: nevermind. I solved the issue. I had to find the correct drivers on the hp website. The page was a bit harder to find but i dug it out.
