Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

Multiple problems with vista

Hi!!,
I have a compaq presario V3000. It has 1 GB ram, 160 GB HDD etc. Now I want to install Xp proffessional on my laptop along with Windows Vista but can't do so as when the setup launches it says that it didn't detect HDD.
I also want to connect my laptop to TV through an S-video out cable but can't do so as no signal is detected in the TV screen except some fluctuation.
When I run any download through the p2p file sharing softwares or download anything even through Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox then too the computer disconnects from the iNternet, I use DSL(External Modem). Earlier I had Windows Vista Home Basic and at that time I didn't experience such network problems. When I try to change the Network preferences then the computer either stops responding or disconnects from the internet. For connecting to internet again I have to restart the computer again!!

I have a compaq presario V6105NR and it currently has a 2.5 inch 5200 RPM 100GB hard drive, i am looking to upgrade to a 7200 RPM 320GB internal drive and all i wanted to know was if my system will support...


Apparently the HP notebook model 441424-001 has a 200 GB HDD in it, I couldn't locate any specifications to what HDD size is the maximum supported by the BIOS of this laptop. I would say you are safe with anything under 500 GB.

On the HP website there's only information about RAM upgrade: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=3250961&

Compaq evo n610c 1gb ram is support for windows 7


Not at all!!
I've installed Windows7 in my n610c (with !gb ram) and my laptop is perfectly working.
Windows 7 is not the 'awful' Vista!!!
The most important things are W7 drivers for this laptop. In order to obtain these drivers, you've to download and install 7zip, then you've to expand in folders the exe files of audio ,video, etc.  drivers of windows xp, and let the system find the suitable drivers..
InstallingXP drivers (exe files) in W7  is not possible!

Also ram may be increased over 1Gb, but you've to install the O.S.
after having upgraded your ram, otherwise graphic card will be not working, even reinstallig its driver!!!
I've just made these operations in two Compaq evo n610c, successfully.
I'd  a problem only for Infrared port, but I've fixed it 'asking' system to find the driver into an external usb HDD full of drivers of various PCs. After a few time , also Infrared port driver was OK.
I've made a backup od windows7 drivers (you may use double driver(free) or Windriver Ghost (not free), in order to backup w7 drivers.
Regards
D.

Laptop shows only 4gb ram & 300 gb hdd


This is the limitation of a 32 bit (x86) Operating System. A 32 bit OS can detect upto 3GB RAM only.

You may either try installing the x64 Bit of XP Operating System or Vista Service Pack 1 or 2 for 32 bit Vista Operation System to resolve the issue.

After installing the SP 1 or 2 of the Vista OS in the Computer, the OS will detect 4GB RAM.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Presario f700 no fan/lights = nothing at all. The charger works


Sounds like the power converter. The power input and the battery are single voltage. The computer requires multiple voltages which are generated by a power converter. If you have installed this motherboard, ensure the connections to the power converter are correct.

You cand put extra memory until 2 GB RAM but i see no use of it.
