The General XP Downgrade Guide for HP notebooks is what you need to read. This well written guide has helped (at least!!) thousands of forum members downgrade their notebook successfully. There is a section that applies to your notebook.

 

The issue you are having probably is related to not installing the MSUAA driver before the device specific audio driver.
