Can I install windows7 to my HP/Compaq CQ40-323AX?

Q: Can I install windows7 to my HP/Compaq CQ40-323AX?

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!

Thank!

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.)

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

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.

thanks before...

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

Hi everyone,

It seems like the BSOD is chasing me...

This time it's about my own laptop.

Its a Compaq cq40 and It's been acting very strange since a couple of weeks.

Suddenly a BSOD will come up and restar my computer.... but I can still use it...

I'd like to fix it before trying to format the entire disc....

I'm posting the dump files...

Thanks in advance!
 

A:BSOD Compaq cq40

It seems like you may have bad memory and reinstalling windows will not fix this issue.
What you should try to do is get a copy of MemTest.

http://www.memtest86.com/

Burn it to a CD and check your RAM. Let it test about 3 times, as if it passed 100% once it may not be an accurate result!

Post back if you need more help or if you are ready to continue.

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.

 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.

HiI have an HP Compaq SG3-110UK desktop, and I would like to change the hard drive to an SSD. Firstly is this desktop compatible with an SSD drive - secondly what type of SATA connection would I need assuming I can? I would prefer to keep the original HDD for additonal storage, so was thinking of getting a power splitter and putting the drive in the optical bay, or the old HDD there (either way). Is this a possible? Are there any gotchas before I commit hard cash? Thanks for all your advice Rob  

A:HP - Compaq Compaq SG3-110UK - Can I install an SSD drive

Hi, From the following link I don't think you have room for a second HDD unless you have to modify the 5.25" bay.     http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c02568761 Now back to your main question, yes, you can replace current SSD with a 2.5" SSD. Currently your machine uses SATA II (3Gb/s) but I believe you can't find any SATA II SSD around, you have to buy a SATA III SSD. You also need 2.5 to 3.5 inch SSD Mounting Bracket which you can buy at any good computer shop for under $10 (or few pounds). You have to work out how to put (physically) the old HDD back. Regards.

No, not during installation. The Windows 7 DVD normally has all drivers on it. When you have completed the install, it will search the internet for drivers and DL if needed. You should be OK.

Hi,
I have this weird problem. I have until now installed a countless number of windows on any given computer but this is the first time I stumble upon this kind of problem. This is an HP laptop infected with a lot of viruses and i can barely turn windows on. That's why I decided I do a format and clean install, but every time I try to boot it from cd it gives me the white blinking line and after a few seconds it continues loading the old version of windows(it's like its not even reading the disc even though I can hear the disc spining) and when i try to boot it from the usb it just keeps displaying the white blinking line. I should mention that I tried both the usb and cd on another computer and they work fine. Thank you
 

A:Can't install windows7

Is the computer set to boot from the disk first in the bios? I am sure that even if you reinstall Win 7 the first copy of Windows will be put into a folder called Windows.old which will mean the viruses will still be there. I would wipe the disk clean before installing Windows again.

I recently installed Ubuntu 9 onto a USB HDD and I took out my Windows HDD and put in my old backup HDD and did the install that way now I can either have the linux HDD either plugged into the USB or inside the laptop itself.

I tried to put my Windows HDD into the USB caddy and boot from there and it did not work it got to the splash screen where the four parts of the window comes together then a blue screen of death flashes for a fraction of a second then it restarts the system and it never gets past that point. Is there a way I can get it to work via the USB route? It has nothing to do with the hardware compatibility of USB caddy because my Windows HDD is the original HDD that came with the caddy. I swapped my original drive with that one because it was larger. So is there anyway I can accomplish this without having to reinstall Win7 onto the drive as reinstalling all my software too is a pain in the behind so if that can be avoided then that is what I would like to do.

Thanks

A:How can I install windows7 onto a USB HDD?

You can't install Win7 on an external USB device. What blocks it is the USB controller. The same external or flash drive would work if it is plugged via IDE/SATA cable.

MS tries hard to keep this from being possible as otherwise you could carry WIn7 around in your pocket to any machine.

A few claim they have done it but admit it runs horribly slow.

It would help to know what kind of laptop you have. You evidently have an oem version of windows 7. Most laptop vendors will send you a set of re-install disks for a small fee. Other people's windows 7 disks most likely will not allow you to install using your laptops product key.

I am in Thailand and my old Dell 1458 needed service. I contacted Dell (Malaysia) for a service location and the final result was a fried motherboard and Dell accepting no responsibility.  So I went and bought a new Dell  Inspiron 5559 (Why?). Computers here come with either no OS or Ubuntu even though Dell advertises Windows 10. I have the original reinstallation Windows 7 disc from the Dell 1458. Can I use that to install Windows 7 on the new computer? 

A:Install Windows7

No. If your 5559 didn't come with Windows, you can't install it without purchasing a license.

My dell laptop came with windows vista when I bought it last year but I was entitled to a free upgrade to windows 7 which I installed without any problem. But a couple of weeks ago my pc crashed and the repair shop reset it back to vista. But when I tried to re install the windows 7 upgrade I just get this error message: 'This installation disc isn't compatible with your version of Windows to upgrade you need the correct installition disc for more information check your computer's system information.to install a new copy of windows restart (boot) your computer using the installation disc and then select custom advance' I tried re booting several times but I just get the same message.

I deleted everything on my hard drive using a program called WipeDriveWizard.
It seems this program also deleted every driver,therefore there is nothing left.

I am trying to do a clean install Windows7 in place of an existing XP Pro operating system. I have followed Windows Easy - Transfer to & from Computers procedure. All backed up to external drive K - I have tried this once but for some reason instead of installing on the C drive it went to another drive D. I did not see during the installation and options saying the drive to install to. I expect I will need to format D to get rid of it. Having done that is it best to disconnect D so this does not happen again? Should I also switch off the external drive K till the installation is complete?

Help will be greatly appreciated.

A:Windows7 from XP Pro install query

Was your OS installed to d: or is your file transfer defaulting to D: while your os is on the c: ?

You will need to either buy a new disc or find the original disc what came with the key.

There are no legal downloads of Windows 7.

Hi,
I just want to know is there any problem in installing software's on Windows7 that are actually designed for windows XP.
Like Firefox, VLC, and many other softwares at download.com.

Actually softwares are getting installed.

Is the windows xp and windows7 same inside.
I am having windows7 ultimate on my laptop.

asking this Just for information.

Thanks and regards
MKT

A:Can I install XP softwares on windows7

It depends on the software. Most software that installs on XP will install on W7 also, though there are a few incompatible programs. Some programs will require running in compatibility mode. With Ultimate, it is also possible to use XP Mode, if you hardware supports it...although I don't know how useful that would be on a laptop.
