If you upgrade your operating system like from windows xp to windows vista, you need to install new hardware driver for your computer like for LAN, webcam, WAN and others because the old driver is only compatible with the old operating system and not with VISTA operating system. Solution would are, download webcam and WAN driver for Windows Vista and install it into your computer. Don't just upgrade your computer because the configuration is not the same with the old operating system. If problem still exist, just upgrade the service pack from 2 to 3. There is available install for upgrading the service pack of each operating system. and surely all your hardwares will function.
To install Windows XP, it is complicated. You need to have the drivers for your Compaq Presario available on another PC so you can copy as needed. I'd suggest going to the Compaq (now HP) site to see if drivers are available. Good luck !
From what you're saying I get that you want to install Windows XP with Service Pack 3 on your computer. Are you wanting to replace Vista, or do you want a dual boot system? Do you have a Vista CD as well if you want a dual boot system? Did you receive any other disc's with the computer that may have a driver set on it?
Basically the software you are downloading is not xp compatible, I had the same problem with my toshiba portable pc, also with ati radeon 9.1. It's a pain as I would rather run xp than vista any day. If you install an older driver it may work.
1) you had vista, you wanted xp for whatever reason. you are doing a fresh install using the service pack 3 disk. there is hardware combatiblity issues and must stay with vista. this is becoming more common with the life of xp coming to an end.
2) you had xp and are reinstalling and hardware has failed.
3) you had service pack 2 or before and are updating your service pack and there is some issue with hardware or software.
Try Fn/F8 (function/F8). It turns the sound on/off.
If that doesn't work, try rebooting 3 times.
Lately, Windows Service Pack updates have been breaking compatibly with Compaq sound drivers.
It happened twice to me with Vista. It takes a couple of reboots before Windows gets the drivers downloaded?/installed properly.
There are several versions of the Presario C700. Pls try here and select one appropriate ti what you have. Thereafter, clicking on the exact model number would open a new page with drivers for several Operating System, pls select Windows XP. If there are no specific drivers, download and install the HP Software Update.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
