The HP Pavilion DV9000 was specifically configured to be compatible with Vista due to Microsoft's high promises about vista at that time. The sound devices and drivers in such laptops are designed specially for vista which was a real bummer.

Since updating the drivers from the HP website didn't work you can try one more thing and that is to first install the UAA (Universal Audio Architecture) drivers released by Microsoft and then install a compatible driver for your audio device. Since this process is a bit complicated, Microsoft has made available a Hotfix which can address this issue for XP systems which can be downloaded from the below reference link.
