    Here is the XP version, R192894  (3.49.4.50, A01)  

     

    > First download and install Compaq sp32646.exe [Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) Bus Driver for HD Audio]

    (or go to Microsoft article 888111 and follow a link within the article to where you request the UAA file from Microsoft.

    >  Next download and install Conexant XP audio driver R192894  (3.49.4.50, A01)

    "You need the right driver."

    It is the one I provided a link to. I don't think it can be found by Service Tag number because Dell does not support XP on the A840; however if one checks out the "Compatibility" of the driver it is listed for 3 models including the A840.

     

    "If you have the right driver there is no way you can't install it."

    After working this board for years I can tell you that just having the correct driver does not ensure an installation.
