Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC
I bought this new notebook. i want to install XP as its OS however, hp does not support anymore xp. it does not give drivers for xp... please help.
I think you're stuck. The Compaq Presario CQ40-313TU Notebook PC does not seem to be compatible with XP.
You could try installing it anyway and seeing if you can track alternate copies of the drivers, or if XP itself recognises the hardware. Looking at the laptop components, the main components all seem fairly common, so you might just pull it off.
Of course, with this approach you run the risk of XP not being able to have all the drivers, and then you will have wasted your time.
You might just be better off learning to live with Vista (horrible as that is!)!
