Burn a XP Installation CD/DVD and use the XP CD Key of your recovery Version. Note that you have a OEM Product so it could be that you need special drivers for your hardware that were integrated in your recovery installation.

Here is the support page of your System: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?lc=en&dlc=de&cc=ch&lang=de&product=363424&

Here you have the mainboard specification if you have to search for newest chipset drivers:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bph07845&lc=en&dlc=de&cc=ch&lang=de&product=363424

You can see there most parts of you Hardware:

Chipset:
Northbridge: 845GL
Southbridge: ICH4

Graphiccard: Intel Extrem Graphics
Is integrated in the Northbridge.

For this devices you can find drivers here: http://pixel01.cps.intel.com/support/chipsets/sb/CS-009236.htm

Soundcard: Is a Realtek AC97 derivat called Realtek ALC202A. You can find the newest drivers for this device here: http://www.realtek.com/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=23&PFid=23&Level=4&Conn=3&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false

Network interface controller: Realtek RTL8100

Heres the driver: http://www.realtek.com/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=14&PFid=6&Level=5&Conn=4&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false


Just for clarification, if you lost your XP CD Key theres no way to install XP on your System legaly. You need to buy a new Windows XP licence!

Just bought a laptop cheap as on trade me for extra battery was told that it was broken but fired it up and works but is asking me for a user name and password to log on to windows. can i over ride it or...


keep the laptop, hope it got a working cd-rom/dvd-drive !(if not, take-out /replace the harddisk)
-win xp has to be removed from harddisk,
the hd must be formatted so you got a blank hd to set up your new system

you'll need :
- antoher PC with internet connection and cd/dvd-burner
- a win98 installation cd or bootable savecopy of it,
- a new win-xp install cd plus cd-key
- a program called PC Wizard(download)
and a bit of time...(one night or two:-)

follow instructions:

if you can enter bios (press F1 or F2 or Del)
during booting), youre lucky...

enter bios while booting, in the menu look for boot otions or devices, change order of boot devices, so that cd/dvd-drive is 1st, then save and exit (F10)
insert win98-CD, boot from cd, try to setup win98, you'll be asked to erase/ format all data/installations/partitions
on the harddisk (drive c:,probably), do so, format the drive using the FAT32-file system,
then end installation without fully setting up win 98.
now you should have a blank disk witout any operation system on it.

now put in win xp cd, go through the whole installation process
install and run pc wizard(it'll tell you all hardware devices of the laptop)
get the proper drivers for the notebook for win-xp from the net(google might be helpful)
install them.
happy computing!

if all this did not work, remove the harddisk,(you'll have to unscrew a lot of the laptop)
replace it by a new s-ata ide-drive()and..
erh.. come again then, this is a long process as well

Help!!


Is it a restart with a blue screen? Is it XP?
If it is XP do the following:
Boot the laptop with a Win XP cd.
When you boot with the Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your applications, it just reinstalls the Windows files. This is great because when it works you don't need to reinstall all your software.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Need audio driver of compaq presario V6000


usually all drivers for Compaq and HP computer systems (portable and non-portable) can be found on the HP support website (Click here to go to it), simply go there, chose your region, than your country, enter your model number (not the series, the model number, you would usually find it on the service tag, or wherever you would find a serial number), but be sure to chose "Download drivers and software (and firmware)", and than chose your operating system. Hope this has helped.

Password


There are programs to hack windows xp password. But often they do not work or cause more trouble to your system. The solution is doing a new windows setup without formatting the HD and without deleting all system file and user setting. To do this reinstall win using a different folder or try using recovery cd with partial recovery (be careful not to delete all data if you use recovery cd. Generally in this case is better to use a generic windows cd for a temporary installation, to recover your data. after a new system is installed you may get your data back from folder C:\Documents And Settings\......

good luck
