Basically you've got to take your XP cd and modify it to work correctly with your laptop.

Have you already tried using just a regular XP cd? If it didn't work it's because your laptop harddrive is SATA and not IDE. The XP cd doesn't come with the correct drivers so when you finish installing XP a blue screen of death will come up and prevent you from loading Windows.

Here's a basic guide on how to do it.

If this sounds complicated then I would suggest sticking with Vista.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Best of luck!

Hi, I want to down grade my Acer Aspire 4315 to win XP. Will I find all the driver for it or not. Must I leave it with Vista? Please tell me. Will it be faster with Win XP?


Are you downgrading from Vista to XP? Chances are, if you have Vista and want to roll back to XP, you should be able to find the necessary drivers. You can go to Microsoft's website to check compatibility with your drivers.

SOUND DRIVER


Compaq does not provide XP drivers for your Presario notebook. However, HP uses the same soundcard on several notebooks (HP owns Compaq), and they do provide XP drivers, so here is the link:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/genericSoftwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=ob-45570-1&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en

Download it, and install it, and you should be fine. You may need network and video drivers as well. If so, let me know.

Cheers

SOUND DRIVERS FOR COMPAQ PRESARIO C790EI ON WINDOWS XP


It is not always advisable to downgrade from Vista to XP, especially on a laptop. The reason being that most of the installed components on the laptop, are specifically chosen for their compatibility with Vista.
However, you can try the following driver, which is more or less a universal basic driver that should work with your machine.
http://www.soft82.com/download/Windows/Vinyl_AC97_Codec_Combo_Driver

Should that not work, you will have to find the make and model of your sound card and do a Google search for the drivers..

Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions,please feel free to post them here.

P.S. - If you find that the solution/answerI provided led you to, or resulted in a fix, please close the ticket with a FixYa!rating. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.

Thank you for using FIXYA!
