..need drivers for old computer....


You can download the drivers to the computer you are using now.
One at a time. Keep them in one folder, where you know where they are at.

Then burn them to a disk. Many use thumb drives, but I'll pass.

Put the disk in the 'affected' computers optical drive. (CD/DVD drive)
Go to My Computer. Double-click on the drive letter, that corresponds to the optical drive.

One at a time, double-click on each file name. You are installing each driver, one at a time.

When you double-click on the individual driver file, there will be 3 small windows that come up; one at a time, and in order.

At the bottom of the 3 small windows, click on Next, Next, and Finish.
Then restart the computer.
(Start > Turn Off Computer > Restart)

Now go back, and Double-click on the next driver file. Install it.
And so on, until all driver files needed, are installed.

I appreciate you stated -
"Compaq Presario AMD Athlon 64 GE force 6150 LE"

,but in all due respect it doesn't state what is actually needed.
To break it down on what you stated,

1) Compaq - Computer manufacturer name
2) Presario - Model name
3) AMD - Processor, motherboard chipset, and graphics card manufacturer.

4) Athlon 64 - A line of AMD processors

5) GeForce 6150LE
Graphics chipset information.
The Nvidia GeForce 6150LE is a type of Integrated Graphics.

Integrated Graphics is also known as OnBoard Graphics.
ON the motherBOARD.

Indicates for one, that the graphics chipset is soldered directly to the motherboard, and not a separate graphics adapter card; which is removable.
Therefore replaceable. (Upgrade)

What is needed here, t_m_conway, is the model number.

This can be found on the Back of the computer, in a white Service Tag.
For Compaq computers, and HP computers, it is the Product Number that is needed. Model number information is contained in it, also.

P/N = Product Number.

'Armed' with this information I can guide you step by step, and not post a bunch of generic 'prattle', as I have above.

It is my belief that once you see an example, detailed out on here; that it will become sparkling clear as how to proceed.

Please post back in a Comment.

OS won't start on Sony VGC-RB60G

To resolve this problem, start your computer in Safe mode, remove the display adapter, rename the .inf files that are associated with the display adapter drivers, restart your computer in Normal mode, and then update your display adapter drivers. The following steps describe this procedure in more detail:
  1. Start Windows in Safe mode. To do so:
    1. Restart the computer, and then press F8 while the computer starts.
    2. On the Windows Advanced Options Menu that appears, use the ARROW keys to select Safe Mode, and then press ENTER.
    3. Use the ARROW keys to select the operating system to start, and then press ENTER to start Windows XP in Safe mode.
  2. In the message that states that Windows is running in Safe mode, click Yes.
  3. Click Start, click Run, type msinfo32 in the Open box, and then click OK.
  4. Under System Summary, expand Components, and then click Display.
  5. In the right pane, note the information that corresponds to the INF File item, for example, Nv4.inf, Oem0.inf, or Atim128.inf.
  6. Quit the System Information utility.
  7. Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
  8. Click the Hardware tab, and then click Device Manager.
  9. Expand Display adapters, right-click the display adapter, and then click Uninstall.
  10. Click OK.
  11. Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.
  12. In the Command Prompt window, type the following commands, and then press ENTER after each line: ren %systemroot%\inf\INF file name from Step 5.inf *inf.old
    ren %systemroot%\inf\INF file name from Step 5.pnf *pnf.old
  13. Close all open windows, and then restart the computer in the typical manner.
  14. Log on to Windows by using an account that has administrative privileges, and then wait for Windows to detect new hardware.
  15. When the Found New Hardware Wizard starts, click Cancel.

    If you receive a stop error after you remove the updated display drivers, restart the computer and use the Last Known Good Configuration option. To do this, restart the computer, and then press the F8 key while the computer starts. On the Windows Advanced Options Menu that appears, use the ARROW keys to select Last Known Good Configuration, and then press ENTER.

    If you receive a "System Has Recovered from a Serious Error" message when Windows starts, restart the computer again. This error message does not recur.

BIOS update

1. Check your PC or motherboard manufacture for BIOS upgrade and upgrade BIOS firmware.
2. Try to start your PC in a safe mode by pressing F8 before windows starts. Then select a safe mode with or without network support.
3. If your computer starts in the safe mode, check if your hard drive is not full or close to full. If it is close to full you need to remove some data from your disk. Try to remove temporary files and clear your Recycle Bin. Restart your computer.
4. You might run low on your memory. If your PC doesn't have enough physical memory, windows is creating virtual memory by using space from your hard drive.
5. If neither solution works, try to run a "CHKDSK C: /R" from recovery console.

Good luck!!!

Fujitsu v5535 describes unexpected error and toshut down and restart but come up with same everytime

Did you upgrade or change any hardware? Normally unexpected errors are from block addresses in memory not being able to be accessed.

Stop errors are from hard ware or firmware changes to hardware.

If you have upgraded nothing, than I would suggest pulling the ram sticks and installing them individually, first 1 stick alone and boot, if error continues swap out with other stick and reboot, if error still exists than probably the hard drives boot sector is corrupt.
