Windows XP Home Edition - No Drivers.

Greetings..I bought a compaq computer tower and it allready has Windows XP Home Edition on it. But the thing is. This compaq tower did not come with a back up disk. My daughter has destroyed three computers we have given her, but when we power up the computer it has a gadet called system restore. but not all of the drivers are still in the computer. Is there a way some one can send us a back up file for Windows XP Home Edition so that we can keep a copy of it on a cd?

    This isn't an issue with XP, this has to do with the specific drivers on your machine. I can gather the drivers you need but I will need the make and model to assist.

Vswright is right, you have to make a restore disk when you are happy that that system is running properly (this called system back up and restore) go to the HP support website (HP now own Compaq)
and enter the make and model of the pc and download the device drivers you need, if you experience any problems, get back to us

Greetings I have a friend who has windows xp home edition and I need to find out where the ram specs are on that os as I am using a different Os...need some assistance


To find out how much RAM is currently installed on the Windows XP Home computer, right click on My Computer (either from the Start menu or desktop) and choose Properties. In the General tab it will tell you how much RAM is currently installed. To find out how much RAM you can install and what speed it has to be, go to Crucial.com and run their free memory scanner.

Hi, mobo driver


Hi,

You can find all the drivers you need from HP's Download page for the DX6120 Micro Tower. I would guess the drivers you need are the chipset drivers, which can be found on the following pages (There are links to all the available drivers for that model #)

Windows XP Home

Windows XP Pro

Windows Vista Home Basic 32bit

Windows Vista Business 32bit

Please note that Vista pages do not have chipset drivers, as Vista should be able to install them on it's own.

Audio driver for windows xp home edition


Try driveragent.com, drivers.com, and/or drivershq.com. These sites indicate that a scan will identify the proper drivers for your hardware, and should provide you with the appropriate driver, correcting the issue. I have also often experienced issues with HP support downloads, as the drivers may be incorrect or obsolete.
