Problems with Compaq Presario C733TU Laptop...

I bought compaq C733TU laptop and installed XP professional on it.

There were no drivers available so downloaded from here and there and all of the drivers got installed but when i tried with recording in laptop, there was no recording being done on my machine. I tried other drivers as well but nothing happened.

So finally i installed Windows Vista Business edition on it and that also created problem. Now all the drivers have been installed except on device "webcam". It just shows "web cam-101" in others group in device manager. I am completely fedup with this. Please help. its been 4 days now and i am keep on trying an trying an trying........... :(

    hi i also installed xp and unable to find sound driver if possible send me some link

  • Yo Mu Jan 09, 2008

    till now i am unaware of the manufacturer of webcam......



    In windows xp, it got installed by default but in windows vista, its showing one device as "webcam - 101" and not only me but HP service center professionals were also not able to install it.



    Such a hell company HP when it comes to support... guys.. dont ever buy any machine from HP... they will just make fool of yours by saying "this machine is with without OS and our machine is tested with genuine windows" what the hell is this........

  • Yo Mu Jan 09, 2008

    guys.. install windows vista on this machine and it will work absolutely fine when it comes to sound and recording and all the other devices except webcam..



    dont install provided drivers from HP as they will make your machine unstable... just leave a comment on info@mycolourfactory.com and i'll provide you the solution for this laptop.



    (guys dont ask for audio driver on windows xp if you need to run mic & dont ask for web cam driver if you need to work on vista)



    rest of the drivers are just a click away for me now..

I have just found a solution. Thanks to 1234567 of driverzone.com who posted it. This is his gem "RE: Error: Windows could not load the installer for image
I have registered myself just becoz I promised myself that if I will e able to solve this problem, I help someone to solve it too.So, here I am.
I have Vista Home premium.If it worked on vista, it shud work on windows.After tracing up to the root of the problem.I found that this message:
"Windows could not load installer for Image.Contact your hardware vendor for assistance"
...was all becoz of one file missing in the folder "system32"
For those who dont know where is system32 folder, its in the windows directory e.g "C:\WINDOWS\system32\"
The missing file is "sti_ci.dll"
download the file from this link:http://www.driverskit.com/dll/sti_ci.dll/3514.html

extract it and paste it in system32.
Repeat the step u did before u get that annoying message...this time, u wont get it.Coz I didnt get it and my cam is working now.

If it worked for u then please help others to solve it too becoz they wont have anyone to help them.This applies to anyone who reads this post and solved the problem.
Farewell"

Here are the drivers for Vista, I'm not sure if it will work with XP.
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp36001-36500/sp36409.exe

Also, according to the HP website, the unit shows as having an HP Pavillion Webcam. I found XP drivers for the HP Pavillion Webcam, but I'm not sure if it works with the Compaq. Try it and see.

you will need to go to the manufactures website and then into their support link, then driver downloads, you will need to select your model laptop. once you are at the correct driver downlaod area, download the drivers you need. BPCS
