Hi

Like mike said b moe dtailed about what you want us to help you with.

If you are downgrading from vista to xp you will need to either get the downgrade cds from the place who sold you the laptop or if you know how you can just take youre raid drivers for that laptop and add them to youre xp disk using nlite. hope this helps

kind regards

I wan't to change my os from xp 2 to win 7.is there any need of driver for such os for my compaq presario c783 tu.help me


Yes when you get a new Operating System you need new drivers for that operating system. Your Windows XP 2 drivers will no longer be valid once you switch to Windows 7 for your Compaq Presario c783tu. Most of the drivers will be automatically installed by Windows 7. You may have little problem with searching for some drivers for Windows 7 which Windows 7 does not contain. In this case you may try to install and experiment with Windows Vista drivers.

Warning: You can severely disable the functionality of your PC if you install the wrong driver. In this case you may need expert help and advice to remove those drivers from your PC and restore the normal functionality.

It says that


It means your laptop has no Operating System.
Is this a new laptop?
You will have to install an Operating System (OS), by using an OS installation CD.

If you dont know how to install an operating system, you can view my tip on installing Windows XP which is a generally similar process of installing other Windows OS (Vista, Windows 7)

Well i turn my computer on and it say insert your windows installation disc well i do not have a disc is there so were i can go and get this disc or do you know a sight where i can down load it


Hi !
There is no FREE Windows installation disc. You have to buy one.
You may try to find if some of your friends have one.
You have to ask for the same Windows OS and Version (e.g. Windows XP Pro, SP-2)

if you have a windows xp disc when you start to install it it will have to format it first by default unless you ask the cd to repair windows in which case it just over writes the files and registry
