Black screen v6000 laptop "HELP Please"


It appears the hard disk has been wiped/formatted and does not have an operating system installed.
You need to get a Windows Vista installation CD and if the Windows label on the bottom of the laptop is still attached then this label has the product installation code.
Boot up with the Windows Vista installation CD to install the Vista operating software then you need to install the Presario device drivers.

You can download the device drivers from the Compaq/HP WEB support/download page. Make sure you select your model laptop and the Windows drivers you require and install them. Click on this link to download the drivers: -

Need to download drivers to install new vista Ultimate software


Drivers ?

If you are loading Vista you use a bootable version of the CD which has all of the required drivers on it and an installation routine plus an un-install program.

Mr Gates does not do freebies and if you find a cracked copy on the net within weeks of putting it on you will be captured and shut out of downloads with nag screens coming at you all day.

Go buy the basic Vista version

Downgraded from vista to xp. cant burn cd or dvd but can play both. any help?


This most likely means that when you had vista, you had a cd/dvd burning software, such as roxio creator. When downgrading to xp, like I did, the software will not be available. Also, Vista has a default cd/dvd burning program, while xp does not.

I suggest you download another or the same dvd/cd burning software. A popular burning program name is Nero. There are many free burning softwares for general burning (ie. burning files, songs, documents)

Driver problem with vista


Unless there is an overly compelling reason to be using Vista roll back to XP, wait a few more months for the new drivers. Vista I'm sure has just been developed to keep mental health proffesionals in buisines. Failing that you can often "trick" XP drivers to work on Vista ocasionaly even got a few 2K ones to work.

Obviously hit them manufacturers web site. But don't be so sure. Had to abandon a printer because just no drivers for Vista.

Go back to XP - Vista offers nothing of significance over XP and with service packs is nice and stable - Vista at this point in time does not play nicely with others hardware or software.

Windows Vista Ultimate on Compaq nx9010


Hello,

 

I recommend you to use Windows XP for time being since, Windows Vista is new released  and make softwares might not work with vista as they are not compitable to vista.

 

However, if you wish use the Windows Vista then I suggest you to make a note of softwares that are not working in Vista  and then look forward for assistance of Particular software Manufacturer for patch of Vista driver or software to work with application.

 

So it is clearly an issue with softwares and not with Windows Vista.  My personal advice  you to start using Vista after 2-3 months as many software vendors started to release and work to  develope their application software with Vista.

 

hmm, let me tell you further . You can visit and check out  website of software vendor for any updates on Vista. This would help you. If you see any updates available, then please go ahead and try to download and install it.  This would work !!!1

 

I am sure that this should resolve the issue for you.

 

 if you need any further assistance you can mail me at thumuvikram@rediffmail.com. I'll be glad to help you.

 

 

Bye....
