unzipped files succesfully but while installing got error that aborted process.

it said "the audio driver files do not support your comp. hardware not:if you unistalled audio software without restarting your PC, restart now, then run this setup agin."

restarted computer, ran again, still no dice

Are you sure you have ADI/SoundMAX?

The following file *should* already be installed on your system, but it shouldn't hurt to reinstall it. Once installed, try the sound driver again.

"what you gave doesnt apply to my computer its apparently for HP comps"

It is NOT for "HP comps". It's a Microsoft fix to "support the UAA bus driver for HD audio". It just happens to be available at the HP website. If it will make you feel better, I can find the exact same file somewhere else.
