Re: Reinstalling Windows XP - Finding new drivers

You helped me a few weeks ago with my Compaq Presario 2500 laptop, telling me how to reinstall Windows XP. I did all that, but I think a few things need current drivers. I went into the Device Manager, and a few things have the yellow exclamation points by them : PCI Modem, Video Controller (VGA Compatible), and Communications Port (COM1). How do I identify which drivers I need? I went to the HP website, and found a list of drivers under my model #, Compaq Presario 2538CL Notebook laptop, but I see several options, and I'm not sure what to pick and install. Any ideas?

    I installed the ATI Video Driver and Control Panel for the Video Controller, and that worked, or at least the yellow exclamation point went away. But the PCI Modem and the Communications Port (COM1) still have yellow exclamation points even after I installed the latest driver from the HP webpage for my Compaq Presario 2538CL laptop. If it helps, here is the page that I'm dowloading all the drivers from -http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softw...
    I downloaded the latest drivers from the "Driver - Network" category. They were all different, so I tried them one at a time and none of them worked. What am I doing wrong?

Your laptop has one of the following network cards installed:

Broadcom WLAN Network

LAN-Express 802.11b

National Semiconductor DP83815/816 10/100

This is the wired ethernet card, the one with the squared RJ45 socket.

If you test the three drivers above installing them one at the time, it will work.

You may need to remove the old software first..when there is a deep corruption, like this, that can happen.

go to control panel, system, device manager, and remove those that have yellow icons..then..keep that panel open, but do not scan for hardware changes

install new drivers..

then scan for hardware changes..

and check for IRQ conflicts in the advanced tab

For PCI Modem - if the CD is with you then insert it and locate the drivers from it.
Right click on the entry of PCI Modem in Dev manager --> update drivers and then follow steps for search from CD.
Similarly for Video, Audio, COM1 you need MOBO cD otherwise download from the websites of Compaq. ALl drivers are available with no extra cost from This link:
Compaq Presario 2538CL
Let me know if you need more assistance or any clarification.

    Communication Port (COM1) is mainly for printers, if you have any printer, then use its Setup CD for drivers.


    Whereas for PCI Modem, you need cd for its drivers, otherwise search for websites, giving full info for your lan card/Modem, so that it will be easily located on websites.

As u said you checked the hp website ,they normally mention the devices that r used in particular model-pci modem is the modem ,vga is display driverand communication ports stands for serial ports.
u can also try to search for the devices individually on the hp website in the following manner 1 by 1 .

ask question in the search like:-
1) modem for Compaq Presario 2538CL Notebook
2)display driver for Compaq Presario 2538CL Notebook

and so on and download the drivers 1 by 1 so u wont get confused.

feel free for any more assistance.
thanks

Very Critical


Have you tried to delete that number? so your problem is all about that number? maybe capslock is on, or maybe your keyboard is damage. Try to buy a new outboard kyboard which is a USB type. Then reinstall your WINDOWS.
