If the laptop has a Vista sticker on its base, then the BIOS is programmed to accept Vista and only Vista. The only way to install XP on that machine is if HP has a BIOS update for that model in their support files. If they do, download the BIOS file and install it. Reboot and if the machine boots up and stabilizes, shut down, insert the XP installation key and reboot.

I cant hear sound in my presario f760ee laptopafter install windows xp


There can be quite a few causes for that.
Start by checking if the audio driver is installed and if the audio device is working (in the Device Manager).
You should also check the Windows Audio service, if it is not running you will not have sound.
Other than that, the basic sound settings need to be checked.
Here is some more detail on the steps:

Problem installing Windows XP on Compaq C 740 TU with Vista


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 !

Go to Microsoft website, to dowload center and search for xp updates or ServicePack2. But if your computer can't support then it won't work, I'm assuming you can run Windows XP now.

HP Compaq Presario 700 series was originally designed for XP and Vista, therefore you can install XP on it.

After installing Windows XP, you will need to install all drivers.

You can download drivers and software for your laptop from HP here.

Presario f700 drivers


You have to download XP drivers from the manufacturer's website. This normally happens because your harware was designed for the new OS(Vista).

Just go to hp.com and search for the model of your Laptop.
