Driver issue on HP Probook 6555b downgraded to XP

We recently got some of these HP laptops in to be deployed out to some of our users.  However I've got this one device that I can't seem to find a driver for.  All it says in device manager is "Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus".  I've already installed all the audio, webcam (thinking maybe it was a mic), modem, and various other drivers I could think of but still no go.  This is also causing the laptop to not shut down correctly when I try to power it off.  Has anyone else deployed one of these with XP on it and had any better luck?

This is a common audio driver for HP. Attached is the file that should fix your problem. After installing this driver, you may get more devices that show up in your device manager such as a modem and/or audio.
UAA-Audio-Bus-Driver.exe

Sadness...

Go to your device manager > Right click on the device in question > Select Properties > Click the "Details" tab > Click the drop down box and select "Hardware Ids" > Take a screen shot and paste it here. (I'd say copy and paste, but you are unfortunately unable to do so.)

The end where it's cut off is "V_1000"

also I would install any chipset drivers since audio may be included with them especially on a laptop.

I hope this helps !

Pointed me towards the driver I was missing, however it did name the incorrect device and it took me a while to figure that part out.
