Hi Harrison685,

Thanks for posting in FixYa.

Sorry Window Xp can not be retrieve back by restoring. You need to Reinstall it. Please use your Window XP Installation Disk for this.

Regards
ELLIN

Upgrades are usually troublesome as they leave bits of the old OS in odd places. It is best to do a clean install.
Choose your OS, either Vista or Win7. XP will not work!
Always download the latest drivers for the OS you are using from hp.com or it will keep hanging and be unreliable.
Hope this helps.

Can't find a driver for 64 mb allocated vidio memory in my HP Pavilion a800N. I upgraded from xp to Vista and now works and fonts are all jambled.


Per HP support this computer does not support windows vista. They are saying no driver for video. I have also checked driver guide site since i am member and only XP drivers. If this is on-board video card you might have to wait and see does hp put out these drivers or some how some one gets it to work. Good luck with this.

well technically speaking if you have the windows XP installation cd then you should have another cd called Driver Software! if not then go to
http://www.driverskit.com/ and that will allow you to download the needed drivers... however i would recommend before installing windows XP that you download the drivers first and put them on a flash drive or Cd-R or DVD-R first then commence with the installation of windows XP

Unable to create restore point after upgrading to Windows 7 from Windows vista


Well. On xp when I had this prob it had something to do with the OS not working. And in the end I had to reinstall it. You may just want to put the OS cd back in and do a repair. I dont know if you can do a repair with W7 but if you can I would do this

I need drivers vista compaq presario 5000 multi media or windows 7 drivers


There are no Vista or Windows 7 drivers available for this PC. All the available drivers for all versions of the Presario 5000 family are available here http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/ProductList.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&taskId=135&prodTypeId=12454&prodSeriesId=96382.

As you'll see the available software for these goes from XP back to Windows95.You might find that some of the XP drivers will work with Vista.

I dont like Vista so my GEEK nephew took off Vista and put XP on my Pavilion Notebook....not a good idea..Now I find I should have made recovery discs and I did not. Can Vista be downloaded or do I need...


Shea,

If you want Vista the only way you can "Download" it legally is to buy it from Microsoft direct. and download it through their download center.

But if your computer came with windows Vista on it you should be able to get the restore disc from your manufacturer for SIGNIFICANTLY less. Usually just the cost of the disc and shipping.

If you don't like Vista, why do you want to put it back on? Is Win XP causing problems?
If so if you describe them and give up what Model pavillion you have we might be able to solve those for you instead.

Hope this helps you
Dave

What version of XP?? Home or Pro. Got to HP support and drivers webpage. Sometime HP will only put drivers in only Home or Only Pro. Check each one and I am sure you will find it.
