Yes you can upgrade your Internet Explorer to IE7 (assuming you have IE6 right now)

You can download and install IE7 from Windows updates or go to the Windows Support Site to download it at http://support.microsoft.com

Only upgrade to IE7. Do not download and install IE8 Beta. It is still in testing. IE7 will not cause any problem with your HP Pavilion.

Can windows XP be install on HP Pavilion dv7-1132nr with Vista OS


Yes, You can dual boot Windows XP and Vista but you'll be having problem finding drivers if you install Windows XP on this computer since Windows XP supported drivers aren't available on Hp download page. HP has only Windows Vista and Windows 7 drivers for this System.
Hope this helps.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Hp pavilion dv 6500 nvidia drivers win xp


Hi lobi1 !
You haven't gave the exact model of your computer. I assume it's the Pavilion dv6500ew. If this is the case, the driver you need can be downloaded straight from the Nvidia website here: http://us.download.nvidia.com/Windows/179.48/179.48_notebook_winxp_32bit_beta.exe
Best of luck, omerk

I have HP-Pavilion DV6 3017TU notebook PC running Windows 7. Does Windows Xp can be installed in HP-Pavilion DV6 3017TU if i remove Windows 7?


I don't think this will work, there are no drivers available for XP on that Notebook. Experience tells me also, that HP is very restricted in delivering drivers for not supported OS. Remember XP is out of Support, so a vendor needs no more support for such OS.

We have windows xp media center 2005 purchased in 2006-7 and I wasn't paying attention to our Help and Solution page until one day I saw that it said the Professional not the Media Center how can I change...


Hi There,

Windows Media Center Edition is exactly that; an "Edition" of XP Pro. If you go to My Computer and then click on System Properties, you will likely be comforted to see that you indeed have Windows Media Center Edition 2005.

Installing windows xp on hp pavilion dv 6516 tx


I'm not sure solution #1 is very explanatory, so....

IF you want to install XP on your computer, Windows XP will load most of the drivers you need automatically.
For the drivers that are specific to your HP pavilion
you will be able to download device drivers from HP website
or, request a driver CD

When XP is installed [assuming you or someone can do that]
you can:
Go to the 'My Computer' icon [right-click]
Choose:
  • 'Properties'
  • Then Choose 'Hardware'
  • Finally, choose 'Device Manager'
Here you will have a list of all your hardware
If you have any drivers that need to be installed, there should be
a yellow (?) question mark by the name of the hardware

Most devices/hardware will be handled by XP SP2
The default drivers will be loaded automatically
For example, your keyboard:

e83fe6a.jpg

Above you see the window that opens if I double-click on
the 'Keyboard' icon.

For XP to function, you only have to worry about the ones
with the yellow (?) question mark

Or, if you want to add a specific driver, like a Video or Sound driver, but you don't see a yellow (?) question mark
you can still install/update the driver at the 'driver' tab
[second tab in the picture above]

If you need more specific help I can do that too

Opening windows media center


i would suggest that you either roll back your driver for the graphics card or do a system restore to a date previous to when the drivers were updated, this wil show in the system restore dates boxes. You are probably running the generic windows driver for your graphics, it's better to see what updates you are installing before updating any hardware drivers.
