Hey,

Yes, but HP doesn't provide the drivers for the laptop, they only provide Vista drivers for this model.

After the xp setup you would need to find drivers for the computer from the internet. but hp doesn't provide the drivers.

So this might become a headache for you.


Let me know if you need anything else.


Thanks,
Ekse

CQ40-108TU XP DRIVERS


i have found this from another forum hope it will work:
For Installing Vista, some users reported that after resetting the BIOS to default (F9), the VISTA installation running smoothly.

In your bios the information of "non vista os installed" is "the Factory installed OS" for this laptop. Probably, you bought this laptop with freedos OS.

I recommend you to install VISTA for this model, however, some users with their own reasons feel the need of XP as their OS.

Up till now, they end up having a hardware conflict between Audio and modem. Some of them can tolerate it, some still finding for the solution.

Unfortunately, they could NOT ask a help from HP/Compaq since HP/Compaq ONLY support VISTA for Operating System.

A policy that encouraged by Microsoft to FORCE users to migrate to VISTA

Presario f700 drivers


You have to download XP drivers from the manufacturer's website. This normally happens because your harware was designed for the new OS(Vista).

Just go to hp.com and search for the model of your Laptop.
