This may require Microsoft's MSUAA to get the audio to work. Did you try that?

Hint: google XP MSUAA

Not a HP problem.

XP knows nothing about SATA HDDs. Since there are some million posts on that now, I think you know what to do next.

The usual workarounds are to use the OS the machine came with or see if the prior fixes and workarounds work.
