Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC
I have a compaq presario v3424au notebook which was preinstalled with a vista home basic ed. however i am not satisfied with the vista performance and want to install xp professional ed. however the problem is that all the drivers of wi-fi, sound device, bios, nvidia geforce 6150 go, etc are bundled with the os itself. these drivers are also not available on the hp site. wen i use this drivers provided with the vista os, the do not detect the hardware or are not compatible with xp. what should i do to completely transfer my notebook to xp pro ed
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.
