SOURCE: hi i have a hp compaq nc8000 and i want to

I download all the drivers from the HP web site. Took a brand new 160GB hard drive and installed Windows XP Pro. I then proceeded to install all the available drivers and softward from the HP web site. The Altiris Recovery Software allow for the creation of a recovery partition.

If you never had a recovery partion on your laptop, pushing buttons won't do anything for you. The F11 key is used for Altiris Recover Partion. I've done this to my TWO nc8000 and would consider buying a 3rd nc8000.

SOURCE: hp compaq nc8230 bluetooth drivr

Hello Arshad,

The best way to obtain the correct drivers freely is to visit the manufacturer's support site. What you can do is to go to the HP Business Support Center.

In this case, here is the link to your HP Compaq nc8230 driver and software downloads page.

Once on the page make sure to select the correct OS version. You will then have a list of all the drivers available for that OS.

Just look around for the Bluetooth driver, which you should find under the network category.

Tip : In case you don't see the required driver, try changing the language as it may be available in another language, but it should work.

In case you still don't find the driver, you may make a search on search engines like Google or Yahoo. To narrow your search, you can enter keywords like : HP Compaq nc8230 Notebook PC bluetooth driver fr Windows 'X'.

Try following these steps and if you still need help after that, you may comment on this question itself and provide important information like the OS version.

Glad to help
