Re: which drivers used when install vista in compaq...
Don't upgrade unless you are planning on installing a new graphics board (VGA). The specs on this PC show that it has an Intel 865G graphics solution. There are no Vista drivers for this chip-set. It is possible that the XP drivers will work but I wouldn't count on it. Probably the same goes for the sound board. Not worth it. Besides that XP is better than Vista anyway. If you want to upgrade, wait for Windows 7 to be released, then take the money you would have spent on this PC and put it towards a new core2 duo or core2 quad. According to the beta testing, Windows 7 will be MUCH better than Vista. I think the release date supposed to be sometime around the middle of 2009? Don't quote me on that. Hope this helped. If so, please remember to rate me. Thanks.

I believe that you have to instruct the software from where it should be receiving the video signal. Pls try in your video capture software (Ulead), pls go to the Options menu, click on the Capture Property Settings, Select yourInput Source (S-Video or the Yellow RCA). Other than that, it should be pretty straightforward.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Since the product key of the computer is updated in the motherboard, even if you try a different disc, it will ask for the product key.
If u are using the correct disc, it won't ask for any prouct key.
Also the drivers won't be compatible.
NOTE: There are options to use the same disc to install in both the computers but the process is really hard. If u are ready for that, i can give an outline how to do that.
You can download the drivers from the Compaq/HP WEB
support/download page. Make sure you select your model laptop and the XP or
Vista Windows version of the drivers you require and install them. Click on
this link to download the drivers: - www.compaq.com/country/cpq_support.html
I hope the following information is helpful.
If you are trying to install the driver for the Broadcom ethernet NIC that was pre-installed (NOT an ethernet card that you purchased and installed yourself), there is a softpack (updated driver installation) download available from HP/Compaq. It will install the driver automatically for you, just download it from the link below and run the ".exe" file.
IMPORTANT: Check to be sure that your current Operating System, and model of the network device you are trying to install, are BOTH listed below BEFORE you download!
