Re: windows Xp installation in compaq laptop

Buy an XP cd if you are going to do it legally, reboot your laptop and boot off of the CD, The XP installation screen will then appear, you will have to choose which partition you want to install XP on, first you may need to delete the partition currently there, then create a new partition. use the default size because you need to leave at least 8 mb free space, then its just a matter of going through the installation steps with your serial code, location, and other details.

Downgrade windows 7 to windows xp on compaq presario cq56

> downgrade to XP

Bad idea. Your CQ56 laptop was "designed for Windows 7". not for XP or Vista.

The only device-drivers on COMPAQ's web-site:

are for installing Linux, to replace Windows 7.

If you did install Windows XP, you'll probably have 800x600 video, no sound, no wireless, and no wired-network access. Not good.

So, do *NOT* try to "downgrade".

Can't install xp in compaq laptop

you mean you need to downgrade your computer from Windows Vista to XP?
if so is the case, you need to go to the BIOS in the Boot menu, select IDE from ACPI.
put the boot option to boot from CD first or disable Boot from hard disk.
then you will be able to downgrade your computer from Vista to XP.

Put XP disk in CD-ROM and reboot the computer.

Click yes to install XP. It will tell you there is a system already installed on C drive. You select to install XP on C drive. It will ask if you want to format C drive, you select full format.

XP will then install

Our Compaq Presario V6000 with XP Windows Medical Edition 2005 Serial # CNF6423GR6 has crashed due to a trojan virus that won't allow my computer to boot up anymore - just keeps kicking us out. We moved to...

Reinstall windows system is very easy to to operate but without having a Bootable Disk or that Windows XP Media Center Edition Disc, i think you have to buy a new one or Genuine Windows XP Media Center Edition. It's in the market.
And also if you friends that are using any Compaq Presario which they have the WINDOWS CD. Borrow it to install in your LAPTOP.
At least XP Media Center Edition they use.
There is another options on how to put operating system on your laptop. To gather any information or to do at least we have any ideas how to get it.
No need for any Serial #. Genuine Windows Media Center Edition have it's own LICENSE or CD KEY.
Hope this might help you my idea. Good luck!

Installing xp audio driver for presario cq40-301tu

As far as I can see from the compaq website, the driver should install from the XP cd, there is no driver on their website for this model laptop, not XP anyway. Have you tried upgrading to service pack 3?
