Re: compaq laptop CQ40-301TU. cant install XP drivers...
In order to get drivers you are going to have to look at the devices you have installed and write them down. You may have to go to their websites for their drivers that they have for that particular operating system.

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 !
I presume your laptop is a Compaq then :-
You need to download the drivers from the Compaq/HP WEB support/download page. Make sure you select your model laptop and the XP Windows version of the drivers you require.
try going back to vista. I know your probably one of those die hard love xp hate vista people, but vista has gotten a lot better. it looks like your laptop was made for vista and sorry to say it but i doubt that a lot of your hardware is supported by xp. and hp/Compaq's are actually pretty decent while i cannot say that i have experience with your notebook i have had a pretty decent experience with hp/compaq in general. but overall it sounds like your notebook is fairly new and microsoft mandated that vista be on all new comps. so hp probably didn't see a need to put out drivers for xp seeing as how it was meant for vista anyways.
