Q: HP Compaq Presario CQ40-314TU Drivers for Windows 7

Hello, I have a HP Compaq Presario CQ40-314TU Notebook. Currently, Windows Vista is installed on the notebook. I am planning to upgrade the notebook to Windows 7 Professional Edition. However, when I searched for drivers for Windows 7, I did not find any on HP website. I searched as follows: 1. Visited http://support.hp.com/us-en2. Entered Compaq Presario CQ40-314TU Notebook PC in the search box3. Selected Software and Drivers from the left menu4. Clicked Go5. Selected Windows in the Operating system dropdown list6. In the Version dropdown list, I only had two options; Windows Vista (32-bit) and Windows Vista (64-bit). Even selecting one of these options displays:No software or drivers are available for this product with the selected operating system. Please make a different selection, or visit the product homepage. Please tell me the link for installing drivers for this notebook for Windows 7 Professional Edition. Regards,Aziz

First check for all the Win XP drivers for your hardware.
You can check your HP/compaq PC here:
General XP Downgrade Guide for HP Laptops - HP Support Forum
NOTE: Please read this thread fully.


If your Win XP CD, does not support your Sata Controller, you will need to load drivers to uses at F6.
Load Sata Controller drivers with a floppy disk is the best way.

OR

I have the above laptop and it is using the Chipset GM45 and a dual core CPU (T3400). I have read the HP's documents and I learned that this kind of chipset can support Core 2 Duo CPUs. I want to know what C2D CPUs does this chipset support because I intend to replace the current CPU with a new one (in the future) to improve the laptop's performance. Thanks all

Hi,

Ever since I've bought this computer (beginning of 2009) my Compaq Presario CQ40 has been extremely slow. I don't really run much software on it, but it takes around 10-15 minutes to start up all processes.

I run Microsoft Security Essentials and Windows Firewall as security, but it previously had Trend Micro Internet Security in 2009.

I do Disk Cleanups, a full defrag through CMD and a chkdsk /r but it's still painfully slow.

The CPU fan is nearly always running all of the time, and after a quick Google this seems to be a problem in the Presario?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Andrew.

Hi Everyone,  please inform me the driver motherboard for Compaq Presario CQ40-530TU Notebook PC which is compatible with Windows 7 - 32 bit. In HP Website, I only found the driver for Windows Vista (32-64 bit). I really need your help all.

 I think most, if not all, of the Vista drivers will work on Windows 7. Actually, when I upgraded a Vista laptop some years ago most of the drivers were included in Windows 7 so you may not need all. Seems like I only needed graphics and wireless driver. How does your Device Manager look?

Hi! My computer is Compaq Presario CQ40. It's 8 years old and can only be used when directly plugged in to the electric socket. It's been working fine until last night when it suddenly shut off. At first I thought that maybe the plug was accidentally pulled out from the source but when I tried to plug it in again, the light indicator beside the power supply in the unit itself won't turn on. I tried to unplug and plug the charger adapter but nothing happened. May I know what could have possibly happened? Is there a way for me to check the possibile problem? I know that my laptop is very old, but I still find it very useful and I wish to continue to use it in the future. Hope to hear from you soon.Thank you!

A:Unexpected shutting off - Compaq Presario CQ40

If you are lucky the AC adapter has just died. To understand more, no light comes on the adapter brick when you plug it in the wall and no light comes on next to the AC jack when you plug into the laptop? Where do you live? On an 8 year old laptop you can find a useable "3rd party" charger for a few dollars.

Hi,
I'm trying to repair/reformat a laptop. It's a Compaq laptop, Presario CQ40. It originally had Windows XP but started giving a blue screen. I can't get anything to work now. Windows won't boot, all it gives is a registry error (software/hive). When I try to boot from the Windows XP disc, it starts the XP boot load, but right before it gets to XP Recovery Repair screen, it gives another blue screen. It says "Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF7C1E524, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000). I don't know what to try. Several internet searches have suggested turning the SATA to Legacy in the BIOS, but I have nothing in the BIOS that relates to SATA. I'm stuck. Please help!
 

A:Compaq Presario CQ40 laptop won't repair or run XP install

Blue screens can be caused y a couple of failing devices; HDD and RAM are most common. Substituting system components with good ones is a cheap way to solve problems like this. It's easiest to start with the system ram and you can easily eliminate the faulty component that way.

I'm not sure if this belongs in Drivers or here, but I'm having an issue with the video drivers on my laptop. It's an HP Compaq Presario V6000 series,v6205 according to the limited tech support I received.
The laptop was purchased in '06 and originally ran Windows Vista, however I upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit a couple of days ago, and have had an issue finding compatible drivers, namely a driver for my nVidia graphics card. HP's website has the drivers for XP and Vista, but want to charge me to get 7 compatible drivers (59.99 for a one-time use). I've read on other forums that it is possible to take the non-manufacturer drivers and modify the .INF files to work, but I'm inexperienced with that sort of stuff. Can anyone offer some advice or walk me through this? The card is an nVidia GeForce 6150. If there are any other details I've left out, I'd be happy to add them. Thanks in advance.
EDIT: In the event that I can't secure the proper drivers, does anyone know if Linux is an option for such a machine? Or would the same driver issues be present?

Hi: Please read the guide on where to find the hardware ID once you click on the Network Controller Device. You click on the network controller device. Then there are tabs on the top of the window. Click on the Details tab. Now you see a line labeled Property. There is a dropdown list that is defaulted to Device Description Drop down on that line and select the second item on the list just under the device description label and it will be labeled Hardware Id's. Then you will see in the window after you select hardware ID's a list of characters that look something like this: PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1502&SUBSYS_1494103C&REV_04PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1502&SUBSYS_1494103CPCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1502&CC_020000PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1502&CC_0200 I need you to post the top string of characters of what you see. So for this example, I would need this line: PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1502&SUBSYS_1494103C&REV_04 Without that hardware ID, there isn't a thing I can do to help you other than to post the links to about 25 different wireless card drivers until you find the right one that works. The problem with that method is sometimes trying too many drivers messes up the registry in your operating system and it can cause problems with installing the driver that is supposed to work.

Hi.
So, recently, my mom gave me her old Compaq Presario C500 laptop. Before recently, it had Windows XP SP3 on it, with full driver installations, etc.

A little back story: My dad bought this computer for my mom. It had Vista on it. My dad Nuked Vista using DBAN (www.dban.org) and installed XP. He was up till like midnight getting drivers from tech support.

I got it, nuked it with DBAN by request of my mom, and reinstalled XP. The XP drivers available for the laptop were not base drivers, they were updates, AND only for certain things.

So basically, I need to know, should I download Vista drivers for XP, or will it fail?

also, this computer is totally out of warranty, so I can't call tech support.

Thanks!

Hi guys wonder if any of you can help you with a query I have....

I am helping a friend with a Compaq Presario C500 (C542EA) laptop, essentially it came with Windows Vista and we want to run XP on it.

I am having some serious issues locating XP drivers for

PCI modem
Audio
Wireless NIC

Does anyone know what hardware this machine runs for these devices? Having hunted around the internet I am hitting brick walls attempting to find XP drivers for this machine. I am hoping this is not a situation where Vista needs to be reloaded on to the machine in order to get it up and running!

It seems that the HP website does have audio and modem drivers (but not wireless NIC) however when i have run the drivers it states that its not for the hardware installed!

Any help would be appreciated!

Hi guys!

I purchased a Compaq Presario A900 which came with Vista Home. As I am not comfortable with Vista, I want to shift back to Win XP but even after searching a lot, failed to find the drivers for the same.

Can you guys please help me to find the complete set of drivers for my notebook. Its very urgent and I will be highly obliged.

Thank you.
 

A:Win XP Drivers for Compaq Presario A900

A900 is the series number for your Compaq Presario laptop. Select the correct model number from this list and then advise what it is.

----------------------------------------------------------------

If you set up Vista with the Windows classic or standard mode instead of the aero mode, it'll look a lot more like XP and you'll probably be more comfortable using it. That's how I set up my Compaq Presario SR5450F desktop when I bought it last year with Vista. A couple of the devices didn't have XP drivers available, and the hard drive is SATA instead of EIDE, so I couldn't downgrade to XP if I wanted to.

Hi,  I'm looking for network drivers for my Compaq Presario V2000, but I can`t seem to find anything on the HP website. The numbers at the back of my laptop are: MFG# 2CB63405NZ and the other number which stands alone is ET059AVR. I tried searching the database with those numbers but couldn't pull up anything. I need to install those drivers to access the internet on my laptop. Feedback would be appreciated. Thanks.

not sure if this is the correct place to post my apologies if it is not. Here is my problem, I got a compaq presario 6000 desktop from a friend to fix, he had someone install windows xp on it, and the onboard lan internet is not working it needs the correct drivers. My problem is he knows nothing of the computer and has none of the original software. So I went to the hp/compaq page to download the drivers, problem is the pc only says it is a presario 6000. I have looked everywhere on the case and motherboard for the t code or sn# as the web page suggests. I have checked the system info and it only says it is a compaq presario, same in bios. Hopefully someone can help. Some other info hopefully of value it does say it is a zztop/pine amer cto on top, the motherboard says it is an n1996 and has a 686y4 sticker on it. any help in identifying this compaq so I can put the correct drivers is greatly appreciated

You can try this - updates Bios tho so you could crap out the whole thing.

It seems the mighty HP/Compaq dropped the ball again for support.

edit: searched using the second id code 686y4 and got:

Have you tried the original HP/Compaq drivers? The Vista one should work with XP.

I formatted my Presario 5000 and installed Windows 98 (Windos ME was previously installed) but I can't find the drivers to make the sound card (which is on board) work. If someone could tell me where to find this software I'´be very thankful.

I had little response to my previous question
http://forums.techguy.org/networking/1089381-puzzling-wired-connection-problem.html
so I went into device manager and deleted the 2 network adapters, rebooted and let Windows reinstall. Windows created a new Local Area Connection (LAC4, 2 and 3 are gone). It reads limited or no connectivity and is using Linksys LNE 100TX Fast Ethernet Adapter, just like the previous LAC2. The previous LAC3, which used the WAN Network Driver never got reinstalled. I don't get it.

Since a Linksys adapter on a wired connection seemed bizarre I tried to find what the correct network driver should be.

I Googled "Compaq Presario 5400US" "ethernet driver" OR "network driver" and was taken to an HP drivers page, which I guess makes sense since HP now owns Compaq
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?os=228&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&sw_lang=&product=93284#N430
This page has nothing listed for chipset or network adapters. Really? This is becoming maddening. What am I doing wrong? Can someone at least point me to a site to determine and download a network driver? Please!
