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.)

It is not clear but is this the first install of Windows 7 on this PC? If that is the case, then unless someone has actually done it, then open device manager for each of the devices that show no driver and get the Hardware Ids. Then search for that device ID with Google to find the manufacturer and driver info.

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?
 

A:Replacing HDD in Compaq Presario Notebook

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.

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.

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.

Surprise, surprise. The dang laptop won't boot from the XP Pro cd but boots up fine with the recovery XP Home cd that it comes with.

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

The question is, how do I unlock it?

I don't want to install XP Home and then upgrade to XP Pro.
Checked Bios. It is the latest version.

Someone please help.

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, Thumper7771976

A:Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook/ Laptop SSD Upgrade

No the issue is the type of hard drive and how it plugs in,  and you have this kind   And an SSD is this kind:  See the difference in the interface? So it is a round plug/square hole kind of thing. I could go on technically about different types of storage controllers and how SSDs optimize speed but the different plug-ins is a deal-killer from the get-go.  About all you can do if you want to speed up hard drive performance is to find a 7200 rpm PATA (top picture) hard drive which will be significantly faster than a 4200 or 5400 rpm kind, which is likely what you had/have. I actually bought a supply of 60 gig 7200 rpm IDE/PATA laptop drives I use in my hobby of refurbishing older laptops. I don't want to sell to an HP Forum member (kind of a conflict of interest) but I can probably steer you to the place I got them if you will send me a PM.  My real best advice is that your laptop if it were a car would be entitled to have "Antique" plates and is actually just a little newer than some of the "old" laptops in my "vintage" collection. The market is very buyer-friendly and you can get a laptop that will run rings around yours for maybe $300 these days and will allow you to use a modern operating system with some semblance of security. I don't think yours could run anything newer than XP.  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

A:Compaq Presario 1250 notebook screen problems

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.

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].

where I have to download the ahci driver?

how do I update my bios (I still lay the problem update / flash bios).


thanks before...

A:Install Windows XP on Notebook Compaq Presario CQ40 717TU

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.
SATA Drivers - Load in Windows XP Setup on Dual Boot
OR
SATA Drivers - Slipstream into Windows XP CD

I'm having sound problems on my old Compaq Presario 1255 laptop computer. A friend had sent a music file over AIM for me to listen to and I was trying to listen to it, but all I got was static.

Can anyone give me a suggestion? I'll go turn that computer on so I can use it via my networking setup and then I can try any fixes or ideas you can give me. I tried looking for a new integrated sound driver, but so far no luck.
Thanks to anyone who can help me!

My Compaq Presario CQ50 Notebook PC can't connect now to wifi because the wireless network button located on the right of powr button above the keyword won't turn on. It was working before. I know when it worked because the amber color of the button would change to blue upon pressing it. The button is amber when wireless network is off. And the button is blue when wireless network is on. Tocay, the button's color stll changes to blue when I press it, but whenever I lift my finger the blue color would change back to amber. And I could see wireless networks appear when my finger remains pressing the button and it's blue. And upon lifting my finger and the blue light changes again to amber, all wireless networks would disappear. So it's just a matter of making that button hold the blue color. Is there a shortcut key to turn the wifi connectivity on Compaq Presario CQ50 Notebook PC? If none, can you please tell me what to do? Thank you so much in advance.

I have a Compaq Presario Notebook computer with a 137GB hard-drive. I would like to install a larger hard-drive in the computer, 500GB or larger. Does anyone know the best way to do this? Also, I was told that I need to put the operating system, Vista Home Premium, on the new hard-drive once I install it. If this is true, how can I make a copy of the operating system on a CD or thumb-drive? Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions.

For a friend I reloaded her Compaq PC with XP Pro. Of course she does not have any drivers (backups) or would understand the need of drivers, like "Network". Are there
any site (s) that have at least the network driver for the mobd? If I have network life hopefully I would be able to download other needed drivers. The mobo is:

ASUSTek Computer INC., NAGAM2L 2.00, Bus Clock: 199 MHz,
BIOS: Phoenix Technologies, LTD 3.07 04/13/2006

Is the best option is just to purchase Driver Detect and hopefully get all the needed
downloads?
Thanks for your help in advance

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!

Recently, I downgraded my Windows 10 laptop to Windows 7 due to parents being familiar to Windows 7. It all went fine and is now set up. However, I have found that neither the Wireless Network Card, The Ethernet or the USB ports have drivers installed and their is not way for me to install them. I have three drivers downloaded to my main computer which are all for the correct model and OS and they are all .exe files, but how can I put them on. I am yet to try a disk, so I will try that but other suggestions are greatly accepted.

Overview:

Laptop: Compaq Presario CQ58-125EA
OS: Windows 7 Home (I think) Un-activated [Because I skipped the product key entry at the first setup because
I didn't have it at the point]
Issue: No Drivers for USB, Wireless Network or Ethernet.
Resolution Format: A Metherd to Load and Run 3 .exe Files to Install Drivers

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!

Nick
 

A:Compaq Presario C500 Xp Drivers

The HP site has some drivers for XP: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=228&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=ca&lang=en&product=3357417 (are these the ones you've tried?)

Try the Wireless drivers from the Vista drivers section, it may support other versions of Windows too: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=2093&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=ca&lang=en&product=3357417

Also are you sure that its a C542EA, double check the sticker on the bottom.

G'day, my mate gave me his laptop to speed it up a bit so I decided to format it with XP as it couldn't handle Vista very well.

I cannot find any drivers that will suit the audio device, I've installed multiple different drivers but none of them work and most of them return with the error:

The laptop is a Compaq Presario C700 model.

"Driver Installation Failed: Could not find the MEDIA device for this driver."

Device instance ID:

HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_14F1&DEV_5045&SUBSYS_103C30D9&REV_1001\4&2636A2&0&0001

Can someone please suggest something I am out of ideas.

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.

Hello I’m new to this forum and this is my first post. I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction. I had to reformat my laptop, and I installed WIN98SE, but I did not use the Compaq startup/restore disk (I didn’t want all the Compaq software on it). The problem I have now is I can’t seem to find the drivers I need to restore all of my hardware…Video, Sound, Modem, USB, PCMCIA….. I’m just looking for the drivers, but I can’t seem to find them on the Compaq page (it is very hard to navigate). Any help that can be offered would be greatly appreciated.

A:Compaq Presario CQ57 Drivers

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.
