    Thanks for your response.
    I can see the desktop but there is no sound though the sound
    card is attached. In the hardware section of the device manager
    it states as other devices but there is no monitor seen. If I connect
    the same monitor to a pc having windows vista it works well ie
    audio is heard and also in the device manager it states as monitor 1707. Hope clarification will help solve my problem.

    Not sure what you mean by not detected - can you see the desktop?

IF you have a built in Video card and/or sound card, and are trying to use PNP cards for better performance. You may have to go into the cmos and disable the onboard devices.

I can't format my HP Compaq 6720s Notebook,win xp say can not hdd drive ,but i'll get new hdd


The reason XP cannot detect the hard drive is because thr hard drive in this model HP is a SATA hard drive and the Windows XP installation CD does not have the SATA controllers on this CD.
To install XP on a SATA hard drive, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

Trying to install xp and keeps saying that "Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed in your computer" It is a laptop, and I don't have any cds that came with the laptop.


check the BIOS of the your PC by tapping F2 when you turn on the PC & check if the Hard Drive is detected by your PC. If it is not detected try reseating the Hard Drive from your laptop. you may also try a different XP cd because it is also possible that the CD is corrputed.

I have a Compaq Presario V3309TU Notebook PC. I reformatted the hard drive, now I could not install windows XP cd. The hard drive could not be detected. Can someone help me get the SATA Driver for Compaq...


The problem is that XP installation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a Compaq SATA drive on a disk etc and can install it when XP asks for a hard drive driver, then XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP.
The Fix.
Go into the BIOS and disable the SATA drive, this will make XP think it is a IDE/PATA hard disk. Then install XP normally, and all the device drivers (including the SATA driver), then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

HP Compaq 6910p New hard drive installed, XP os canot see the hard drive, asking for driver. ? where can i get it and how do i install it. Yours Steve


Method 1 :  Go to BIOS and set anything with SATA disable (usually find uns=der advance setting in IDE configuration setting).
Save the setting.

Windows Xp will detect your hard drive now.

Method 2 : This days BIOS comes with only few thing to configure.if that's is the case.
Download SATA driver,here is the link

http://download.cnet.com/SATA-Driver-Intel-Ver-7-0-0-1020-zip/3000-2122_4-162224.html

you need one more software called "nlite" in order to integrate the SATA driver in Windows XP CD so that it recognize SATA drives.

Here is the link for nlite download

Problem with dvd/cd ram does not detected cd


CD Recording software that comes with HP and Compaq computers is made to recognize only the original CD and DVD drives. If a new CD or DVD writable drive was added, use the software that came with the drive or purchase and use new CD writing software. If you are using Windows XP, you can use Windows XP itself to create CDs (not DVDs). CD or DVD drive is not recognized by Windows If the drive is missing in Windows, remove all connected USB, firewire, and parallel devices and perform the following steps to enable the drive in Windows: Step 1: Checking for CD/DVD drive in BIOS Make sure the drive appears in Setup. The drive has to be detected in the Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) before Windows can see the drive. Check for detection as follows:
  1. Turn on the PC. When the first logo screen appears, press the F1 key repeatedly until the BIOS Setup screen appears (on some models this key press may be different, F2 or Del )
  2. Press the F5 key, and then press the Enter key to reset the BIOS to the defaults.
  3. Use the Left and Right Arrow keys to select Main .
  4. The hardware-identifying name should appear next to Secondary Master, Secondary Slave, or Primary Slave.
