I have already installed Windows XP Service Pack 3 and downloaded the sound and display driver from the manufacturer website but when I try and install it, I get an error message that it was not successfully installed and it demand Windows XP Service Pack 3 CD.

I don't have the Windows XP service pack 3 CD.

Is there any other way to sort this issue?

Thank you.

You will need to upgrade to Sevice Pack 3 if you want assistance. Service Pack 2 is not supported by Microsoft. – Ramhound Apr 29 '13 at 12:00

You could always install SP3 without the CD. That should solve your problem. Look at this guide here:

I would suspect the installation of SP3 was not successful. You can find out what version you have, click start, right click on My Computer and select properties to see.

I suggest you remove it from your machine (via Add Remove programs) and then you can download it via the normal Windows Updates and re-install. More details.
