Compaq A3000 Drivers won't install in Windows XP Home

Drivers won't take in XP error message as follows;Trying re-install of software for A3000 Compaq All-In-One Printer/Scanner/Copier

Running Compaq's SP20921.exe driver routine...runs but exhibits error code 0X80040702 with the following DLL files not being extracted and loaded.....pdpinst.dll and inst32.dll

Is this due to some software I have not located and removed or a registry entry I have not located??????

Appreciate any ideas....

Ths looks like a not properly removed software. What you can do is to remove the software manually by removing all the files and registry keys. But do this at your own risk. I suggest that you do a backup of your computer first

Cant install bluetooth drivers on my hp compaq nx 7400 notebook

Which operating system do you have on your computer? Windows XP or Windows Vista?

Windows XP

A detailed troubleshooting page for Bluetooth devices on Windows XP can be found here.

Windows Vista

If you have Windows Vista or that doesn't solve your problem. You can try typing in the name of your Bluetooth device you're trying to connect followed by drivers into google

For example, if I were trying to connect a Microsoft Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000 to my computer, I would type the following into Google: Microsoft Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000 Drivers

Good luck!

Can't install the driver

Compaq never made a driver for this model that was for Vista. You can try downloading the XP drivers from Sometimes these drivers will work with Vista, sometimes not. If not, Maybe compaq will put out a driver for Vista in the future.

Microsoft Windows Vista and Compaq A3000

Onmly Compaq will have the approprive driver download. You are correct to assume a Vista compatability issue- this is becoming more evirdent with many peripherals. By the bye- the printer is of course a rebadged Lexmark or HP or Brother [ can be either] see if you can see which and check the appropriate web site. This site may also be of assistance
