1. If your Atheros wireless LAN Driver failed, use this drivers which compatible with xp, vista and 7 and support more Atheros AR9xxx series
Wireless Atheros 2011 Driver Download

2. For audio if you have problem installing the drivers, or after installation it didn't work we have to locate different version for your audio drivers. This case is rarely happen but in case it happen to you first thing to do is to get the hardware ID and post it here. Do mention your windows XP version (sp1, sp2 or sp3).

3. Audio Drivers: Need Volunteer
I've been struggling for past few years to keep C700 audio drivers for xp available on the net. No upload is allowed since it is illegal to do that, so here i need volunteer to test this drivers since it is available in HP server. So no need to struggle for upload, re-upload, finding mirror file.

Here is the idea, get the original windows vista drivers for your C700 audio here:
http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp40501-41000/sp40762.exe

Then install this drivers by installing the drivers first and ignore the error, then:

a. Click on Start and select Run. Now type devmgmt.msc and press enter.
b. Right click on “Audio device on High Definition Audio Bus” and click Update driver.
c. Select “Install from a list or specific location”.
d. Click Next. Then select “Don’t search, I will choose the driver to install”.
e. Click Next and then select “Sound, video and game controller” from the list.
f. Click Next and then click Have Disk.
g. Click Browse C:\swsetup\sp40762\spartan1.0\v32 folder and select the SprtHDza.inf  file and click open and continue with the onscreen instructions.

If you do test it, please post the result here including your model. Thanks in advance, I appreciate your effort for helping me on this matter.

    6. Pls help me I have c797vu compac laptop core 2 duo . 1 GB ram.
      In this laptop have option for upgrade ram or graphic card. Or how much. And any one know about external graphic card.

      Delete
    7. Upgrading your RAM.
      Yes you can upgrade your RAM from 1GB to 2GB(maximum). You notebook have 2 RAM slots. So you can choose to upgrade by using:
      1x2GB RAM (2GB for one slot) or
      2x1GB of RAM (1GB each slot). - recommended
      Your RAM type is "DDR2 PC2-5300 SoDimm" and I believe it is hard or not available if you looking for 2GB for this kind of RAM.
      Price : 1GB USD20++ (price may varies base on your region).

      Upgrading your graphic - Internal Graphic
      Base on specifications, your notebook use Intel GMA X3100, which up to 251 total video memory. Since it is an integrated graphic, upgrading by replacing your current graphic will not improve the performance so much. Yes you can upgrade with the right Graphic but the process is complicated, hard to find the part and not worth money/performance. Second, you will need to do an advance BIOS upgrade which is a big risk if you not really know about it. Lastly, I strongly recommend to consult laptop technician/expert nearby to get the specific details about the what graphic card available for upgrade.

      Upgrading Your Graphic - External Graphic
      This is the better options compare to replacing your internal graphic card, if you want to know the details (setup, price, compatibility), read here: http://www.neowin.net/forum/topic/1191969-external-gpu-for-laptops-supercharge-your-graphics/
