hello there,.. please help!
i have Compaq Presario CQ40-717TU Notebook PC,
the problem is
my netbook support for windows vista, but i want to downgrade it to windows xp, because some school work still using windows xp. I've been surfing everywhere.
I can a lot of tutorials some of which is flash the bios. update bios with its high risk.
As for some of them give a tutorial to make your own xp sata, using "nlite" and I became confused when I have to find a suitable driver for ahci [CQ40-717TU].
to the seniors and professors. please guide
where I have to download the ahci driver?
how do I update my bios (I still lay the problem update / flash bios).
I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system
It's worked out well for many of us in the past.
You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)
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.

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?Read other 1 answers
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!
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.
Pardon me if my problem sounds little funny.
I have Compaq Presario CQ40, windows 7 laptop.3GB RAM,320 GB Hard Disk.
Since past few days i m facing this problem, whenever i put on my laptop, and when the desktop opens, my laptop hangs in another 1 or 2 minutes. i have tried this around 5-6 times and still there isn't any improvement. i have also tried to set my computer to an earlier restore point, and have done this twice, still no improvement.
Shall i run recovery, i m afraid of data loss.
Can any 1 guide me what could be the cause, and what could be the solution.

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
Hi, As you can see, no available link for Windows 7. Please run Windows 7 updates FEW TIMES then post back missing driver(s). Regards.Read other 1 answers

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.

HI so i got this laptop that does not boot and does not even turn the screen led on... the power lights are onn plus i noticed the caps lock and the num lock lights keep flashing at the same time every 3 or 4 sec... before this it was working fine i remember the last time i use it the screen turns black... because the battery was low... then when i went home and connect my charger... nothing seem to show up... the things that I tried is rreplacing the ram modules, unplug battery and the power adapter then just connect the power adapter without the battery but still nothing.. plus i already tried connecting to a external monitor, a projector and also a tv with hdmi cables, still nothing.. i tried spamming the f9 f10 f2 but nothing shows... I am seriously worried now because all my documents are in the laptop... any suggestions?Read other answers
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!
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.Read other 1 answers

Hello all.Just as the title said.
My Notebook is HP/Compaq CQ40-323AX. When I seed the windows7, I love it at once. And I have installed win7 to virtual pc. But I want to install win7 to my notebook but not virtuall pc. So some problems occured. It's the driver. Because the win7 was based on the vista, I think it may run well when useing the vista drivers (The drivers were downloaded at www.hp.com.cn)
Who can tell me I can do as I think? It's my thought right?
Or someone can give me a better way!
How is the performance under Vista Ultimate? If you are using Vista Ultimate there should be no problem upgrading or even 'Fresh' installing windows 7.
Yes, a lot of Vista drivers work with Windows 7 (just right-click the setup file and in properties select Compatability for Vista). This works about 90% of the time, if installing build 7068 you may not even need to update your drivers.
NOTE: You will need to backup you existing files (pictured/documents/music/videos etc) and make sure you've got an installation disk for Vista in case the upgrade/install fails.
P.S sorry for the late reply
I have started installing WindowsXp on my Compaq presario SG3540IL . But i am getting some problem. after booting form the cd immidiatly, the screen turns into black and shows the "GENERAL PROTECTION ERROR" with other text too.
PLease sugges me what to do.
How many sticks of ram do you have? If 2, take one out and try, and if the install fails switch it with the other.
Make a Memtest86 disk and test your ram.
Do not have anything extra plugged in (USB ports etc) that you don't need to boot.

I did that, but when i try to restart ,the system doesnt ask 'press any key to continue boot....' It just goes blank screen ...nothing happens for hours.

Ok guys, im new here so i hope you can help me to figure this out.
I have been more than 3 days fighting with this an my options now are CERO. My problem:
Im formatting and reinstalling a fresh Windows XP on a Compaq Presario SR1923WM desktop, the first installation process that copies the files to the hard drive its fine, the problem starts when xp starts to install devices, it firstly was stopping at 35 minutes, i tried to find out the problem opening the setupapi.log, then i did erase the .inf causing the trouble and nothing. By the was i was using aXP version.
Then i tried with another disc, this time a Windows XP for HP machines, this times the minutes went down completely, the progress bar reached the 1% and then again showed me one gray screen and the system was hanging again.
Then, i figure out that the initial XP installed on the machine was the Windows XP Media Center Editio 2005, so i tried to install this with an OEM disc and then again it started to hang at 35 minutes.
I have tried other XP disc and nothing happens, i just can't get any OS installed on this PC.
Any help would be so much appreciated!

I tried to install windows onto my laptop. It went through the set up process, but when it got to the install part, I got an error message stating that Windows could not find a HDD installed on my computer. So, thinking something was wrong with the HDD, I bought a new Wester Digital HDD. After installing the new HDD, I again tried installing windows, with the same outcome. Someone has told me that Compaq is bad about putting "blinder" codes in their BIOS to hide the HDD from being overwritten. I called Compaq Tech Support, but because my warranty is out, they wanted an arm and a leg to "help". Is there any truth to this? Does anyone have a solution for this problem?
If this is a SATA hard drive, you need to install SATA controller drivers at the F6 prompt. Since this procedure needs a floppy drive and you probably don't have one, go into the BIOS and see if you can change the controller from SATA or AHCI mode to IDE mode. If have this option, then Setup should continue.
System hang up when ever I make video call either from Facebook or skype and also when I watch movies in online and youtube...

My Presario CQ60 is quite old, but still works great, but the operating system and Office needs to be upgraded. Currently running under Windows VISTA (Basic), and Windows Live Essentials 2011. I would like to upgrade the operating system (VISTA) to one of the later versions of Windows, and would like to upgrade to a more modern version of Microsoft Office which includes MS Outlook as the email manager. Any help in how to determine which programs can run on this model laptop is appreciated. Tomja2 in Kinsale, VA
@Tomja2 Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums! There are two kinds of "upgrades" to newer versions of Windows -- one with an Upgrade Path, and others without. The Upgrade Path means that when you upgrade the OS, you can retain your settings, personal data, and applications. This is only offered (historically) from one OS version to the next. So, in your case, that means it only works upgrading Vista to Win7. Without an Upgrade Path, you would only upgrade the OS components. You would have to redo all your settings, restore all your personal data, and reinstall all your applications. Anything newer than Win7 is going to be this kind of Upgrade, basically a whole new installation of Windows. As to Win8, your best bet there would be Win8.1 -- if you can find it, as that introduced a lot of improvements over Win8. But, MS also removed the Start Menu, starting with Win8. So, if you decide on Win8.1, I strongly recommend you then consider installing a third-party Start Menu. And finally, I would advise very strongly against trying to upgrade to Win10. HP does not provide any Win10 drivers for your PC, and without those, you are stuck with the generic drivers Microsoft will install, and most likely, that will mean that one of more of your hardware devices are not going to functional properly. As to the specific programs, your best bet is to visit any support forums for the programs you are ru... Read moreRead other 1 answers
And it crashed today. I'm not sure why but I think it was because of Java

Hi, all. I always turn to you guys for help as I'm only a newbie. I have a two weeks old Compaq Presario R3240US with 512 ram & 60gig.
I was installing a bunch of programs and all of a sudden, I got the "A necessary component for this function is missing or damaged (c:\symantec antivirus\novapw32.dll)". Then the system alerted me to antivirus protection not being on then eventually firewall protection not being on as well without disabling them from my end. Last program I installed before all this hassel was the "Norton antivirus corporate ed.(?)" and I ended virus scan before it was completed because it took so long. I did have the regular Norton antivirus on my system but wanted to upgrade to corporate version thinking it was better. I tried to uninstall them but I can't even open 'remove program' from my control panel. As matter of fact, I can't open anything! I rebooted it up by taking the battery out so I could even reboot but it didn't help. I was able to access a few app on my numerous reboots (when I could've) but very limited. Semantec(norton) did take me to a webpage where they described how to check for virus. My computer couldn't even do that. Something about active x(?) and even when I said to install, it didn't help any. Then it said to uninstall and install again which I couldn't accomplish either.

Alright. Please, somebody help me. This is just plain annoying. I have a Compaq Notebook Presario 2402 US that I got recently. It came preinstalled with XP Home. I wanted to format and instead install XP Pro from a CD that I have already.

I read somewhere that Compaq and HP block the computer from reading other OS's. Don't know why.

Hello. I just recently bought a compaq presario cq57 laptop from a friend. And I was told right after I paid for it that my friend couldn't remember the password so therefore couldn't get into it. Thus I too can't get into it and am totally locked out.It barely starts to boot up after turningit on when it almost immediately goes to the screen saying/asking for a password. And every time after 3 failed attempts it says disabled and gives me a special number code to go with it. The disabled code that it gives me every time is - disabled 69374099. Is there anyone out there that can give me the real/right password to put in especially one that matches up with the disabled number code error that it keeps giving me. Thank you all very very much. I really do appreciate it a lot. Sincerely, Thumper7771976Read other answers
The screen on my Compaq is starting to come thru scrambled. This happens all the time. Tilting the screen back and forth will sometimes correct the problem. However, I can only have it about 80 degrees to the keyboard which makes for a sore neck. Does anyone have any solutions? Thanks, Ray
Sounds like the flexible connector between the screen and motherboard has given up, probably with use?
It would need disassembly and replacement of the flexible mylar circuit. Could possibly just be a connection issue at one end or the other, which still requires disassembly.
Working on a laptop is akin to microsurgery, it is very easy to do damage if untrained.

The laptop battery works, the AC adapter works (the light where the adapter connects to turns on when I connect it), I tried doing the thing where you take out the battery and disconnect the adapter and turn on the So everything works except the screen is blank, I connected another monitor to see if it's the GPU that's bad or my laptop's monitor, but my other computer's monitor doesn't detect anything which leads me to believe it's not my laptop's screen but something else.

I got this new notebook HP COMPAQ PRESARIO C736TU Which is a total nightmare for me as im having soo many issues with this junk.
As you all know this notebook has the worst ever driver installation errors, previously it was having an error on Inbuilt Mic, and when i return the notebook to the agents, they replaced the motherboard saying the fault was there. And now im having a driver installation issue, while been unable to connect to the web.
Im using broadband ADSL with a Prolink Hurricane 8000 USB ADSL modem, and it was working fine earlier on and it works soo fine on my other machine as well. But When i install the sound driver for HP COMPAQ PRESARIO C736TU im getting this new error msg when try to connect to the web,
Network Connection Error" Error 623 - The system could not find the phone book entry for this connection
Earlier on this was working fine, but after they have replaced the mother board im getting this and after installing the sound drivers.
Anyone know's how to fix this..? and wot its all abt..?
