You can't.
They're two separate OSes, and Windows XP doesn't have the "anytime upgrade" feature of Windows Vista.

You can't upgrade a newer OS with a old one. Backup your stuff and re-install or dual-boot like everyone else here.

I cant give you a direct link. I have no idea what sound card you have. Use Belarc Advisor, SiSandra Software or Everest to find out what sound card you have and from there you can google your drivers.

We discourage direct hotlinks here anyway after what we've been through. We can only direct you to the site or the right page to get them. The rest is up to you.

SoundMax? RealTek? Just use the information that the program gave you and put it right in a Google Search box.

Type in the make and model of your PC into a search box with Sound Drivers should get results as well.

The Mic driver should be included with the sound driver. If it isnt working then you have the wrong driver.

As i already have said i can not cause i have no information about your PC. I already given you all the tools you need to be able to do this yourself.

Go to the PC Manufacturer's home page and search the Support and Downloads section for your make and model.

That is all that myself or anyone else can say.

You need to go through configuring your microphone in the sound device properties in control panel. This is also where you can setup voice recognition if you desire. Until then, it won't work.

Right-click on the loadspeaker icon in the notification area (bottom right of your screen).
Then follow the links to configure your sound-card setup. (the mic will be in the recording section)
