Drivers for Presario c500


Hello,

I understand that you need the audio driver for c500 notebook. But you didn't mention the OS if it is XP or Vista.

Anyhow, all these latest notebooks are shipped with Vista OS.


You can download the Vista Audio driver for your notebook from the below URL:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=ob-51724-1&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=3413016&os=2093

or

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp35501-36000/sp35940.exe

Copy the complete URL starting from "http" till "2093" and paste it onto the address box of your browser, and then press Enter.

If the OS is XP, then download and install it from the below URL:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=ob-51724-1&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=3413016&os=228

or

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp35501-36000/sp35940.exe

Copy the complete URL starting from "http" till "html" and paste it onto the address box of your browser, and then press Enter.

I have provided the C500 Audio driver for both XP and Vista.

Please reply if you need any further help on this.

Downgrading from vista to xp sp2


I know this problem, The HDD is a SATA disk, win XP setup cannot identify a SATA controller on it's own you need to load the driver (from a disk) so you may need to download it first. I think this is the correct link http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=ob-51521-1&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=3369431&os=228&lang=en extract the files and burn to a CD or Floppy then run win XP setup by booting from CD you should see in the begining of win XP setup from CD it prompt you to press (I think) F2 to add RAID or SCSI Controllers, (this prompt is at the bottom of the screen) Then follow the propmts to load from the disk you made earlier. you should be able to select the controller from a list. (short list) you should then be able to continue and hopefully Win XP setup should now be able to see your HDD and give you choices about which partition (as per normal) you want to remove all partitions before installing winXP (you can then make whatever partitions you wish) Hope this helps
