If you go to compaq's site, they don't have any drivers for the sound & video for your laptop[ that go into xp, but they do show the drivers for vista. you could try these one by one to see if they work (sometimes they do) and if they won't, at least you have a list of the hardware that is in your computer, and you can look at the manufacturers site for each of these and you should be able to get drivers for xp from them.

I went from vista to windows xp I had speakers working on vista and when I went to windows xp they didn't work


If the computer hardware was "designed for Vista", it usually means that device-drivers for audio/video/network components for Windows XP will not be available. Switch back to Vista, or upgrade to Windows 7.

No usb driver for XP.Blue screen.MP518D


In fact USB 1.0 dosent require any additional SW in XP environment, its driver is inbuilt in Xp. However USB 2.0 Obviously requires its driver that you can download either from www.microsoft.com or from your motherboard vendor's website.

The blue screen might be because of VIRUS, currupt Windows or driver conflict.

Please uninstall all undesirable drivers, use Windows setup disk to repair your current installation (run setup and select upgrade, not new Installation)

Download USB 3.0 driver and install it.

Hope it will work

Cant install bluetooth drivers on my hp compaq nx 7400 notebook


Which operating system do you have on your computer? Windows XP or Windows Vista?

Windows XP

A detailed troubleshooting page for Bluetooth devices on Windows XP can be found here.


Windows Vista

If you have Windows Vista or that doesn't solve your problem. You can try typing in the name of your Bluetooth device you're trying to connect followed by drivers into google

For example, if I were trying to connect a Microsoft Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000 to my computer, I would type the following into Google: Microsoft Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000 Drivers

Good luck!
