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!)!

Can windows XP be install on HP Pavilion dv7-1132nr with Vista OS


Yes, You can dual boot Windows XP and Vista but you'll be having problem finding drivers if you install Windows XP on this computer since Windows XP supported drivers aren't available on Hp download page. HP has only Windows Vista and Windows 7 drivers for this System.
Hope this helps.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Bsod is showing...in hp compacq...why??can't change my OS from VISTA to XP???why??


If you are downgrading your OS from Vista to XP, you have to repartition & reformat your HDD before fresh installing Win XP OS. BSOD is due to drivers installed which is not compatible to you hardware,

You have to check if any drivers for XP is available for your laptop model @ HP Support
You can use the "Service Tag" for your search to locate the exact model.

Hope it helps.

I have HP-Pavilion DV6 3017TU notebook PC running Windows 7. Does Windows Xp can be installed in HP-Pavilion DV6 3017TU if i remove Windows 7?


I don't think this will work, there are no drivers available for XP on that Notebook. Experience tells me also, that HP is very restricted in delivering drivers for not supported OS. Remember XP is out of Support, so a vendor needs no more support for such OS.

V3424au presario notebook update


This is possible but will take some patience. Install Windows XP & Service Pack 2 Then check what drivers are NOT installed by going to device manager. Then go the the Compaq page that lists the drivers for Vista: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=2093&lc=en&cc=uk&dlc=en&product=3446906&lang=en Make a note of the name/model of these drivers and search for the XP equivelent usually by visitng the device manufacturers website. Im sorry this is complicated and long winded but its the only way.
