You need to follow this guide:

The problem is that your XP cd doesn't have the correct drivers for your hard drive built-in. You need to modify the cd in order to make it work correctly.

Downgrade windows 7 to windows xp on compaq presario cq56


> downgrade to XP

Bad idea. Your CQ56 laptop was "designed for Windows 7". not for XP or Vista.

The only device-drivers on COMPAQ's web-site:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=4326711

are for installing Linux, to replace Windows 7.

If you did install Windows XP, you'll probably have 800x600 video, no sound, no wireless, and no wired-network access. Not good.

So, do *NOT* try to "downgrade".

Can't install xp in compaq laptop


you mean you need to downgrade your computer from Windows Vista to XP?
if so is the case, you need to go to the BIOS in the Boot menu, select IDE from ACPI.
put the boot option to boot from CD first or disable Boot from hard disk.
then you will be able to downgrade your computer from Vista to XP.

Ethernet drivers for compaq presario SR5510


I'm afraid the Compaq Presario SR5510 doesn't have support for Windows XP, as it is built for Vista or 7. If it shipped with a downgrade option to XP, I assume that the approriate drivers is either located on a CD or on your harddrive somewhere.

Unable? that cannot be. Get a 100% working copy of windows xp, that is not a restore disk, and do a clean install. if that fails, try Kubuntu

Sir i have a problem in my compaq presario cq-60 104tu modle , i have installed xp instead of vista (6 months using vista ultimate) after installation in 3-4 days there is a problem in its charging system,...


Hi,
Installing Windows XP will have no effect on your charging system. Have the charger and plug socket checked at your local PC store.

Best wishes,
