Newer hardware, older OS and no software or drivers

Forums: 

I know this is not a Linux ?, but I need help please. I rebuilt for a friend a HP PC I had. It orig came with vista, but I only had win xp[ pro to install and he wanted windows. The onboard 6ch audio is not being acknowledged cause xp pro doesn't come with the software or drivers. I have a midi control panel, but it's all gray, I cannot click on anything. If I plug a device into one of the jacks that is recognized and does it's own sound, the panel comes to life only for that individual device. How can I make the onboard audio work with xp pro??
