First try the manufacturer of your computer. However, there are many makers that didn't bother with pre-Vista drivers.

I cannot install ethernet driver of hp compaq d530. Where can i find it?


Hello: I hope the following information is helpful.
If you are trying to install the driver for the Broadcom ethernet NIC that was pre-installed (NOT an ethernet card that you purchased and installed yourself), there is a softpack (updated driver installation) download available from HP/Compaq. It will install the driver automatically for you, just download it from the link below and run the ".exe" file.
IMPORTANT: Check to be sure that your current Operating System, and model of the network device you are trying to install, are BOTH listed below BEFORE you download!
This is a software / driver update for the HP Compaq d530 ultra-slim desktop: All Models

How do I setup a dual boot for a PC with Vista and XP? I want XP to start automatically.My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite L355-S7915 that had Vista Home Basic preinstalled.


The first thing you need to do is repartition the hard drive. This will effectively erase the drive because partitions run below the OS level.

You create two partitions and then you can load each OS to its own partition. When the box boots you choose the OS you want to start and thats it...I think if you put the preferred OS in the first partition it will load that one by default.

You need both OS disks to do this so make sure your factory Vista disk works.

Hello guys....i have Vista basic installed on my compaq C 740 TU laptop.....i wish to install windows Service Pack 3 on my machine.....but whenever i insert the XP cd and boot from it.....it fails to...


From what you're saying I get that you want to install Windows XP with Service Pack 3 on your computer. Are you wanting to replace Vista, or do you want a dual boot system? Do you have a Vista CD as well if you want a dual boot system? Did you receive any other disc's with the computer that may have a driver set on it?

How to install window XP onto Compaq Presario C700


I would suggest first trying to make it a dual boot to make sure you can get all the drivers working. Vista has a resize function for the drive size, and you can install XP in a second partition (probably about half the drive would be nice) There are directions for that elsewhere. You can make a folder on the partition after you install the XP Windows system (Vista should see the XP partition with no problem) and download drivers as you find them in the Vista, which will still have connectivity software running, while XP might not connect until you find the ethernet and wireless drivers. I looked in Google, and found several sites with people looking for and finding the XP drivers that worked. You will need a working copy of the version of XP you want to install, with COA/install numbers for the XP, of course. Good Luck.

Wireless card not functioning/disabled after loading XP in a Compaq Presario C700T CTO Notebook PC


The wireless is not going to turn on and off via the switch properly until we get the drivers loaded to make it work. There are 3 possible types of wireless card it could be, so we have to find out the exact model number of your system. On the bottom there should be a label that has a P/N or part number listed. what are those numbers. Here's an example of the label:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00033108&lc=en&cc=us&lang=en&os=2093&product=3632144&dlc=en

or

http://tinyurl.com/35dt4h

we need the info listed for #1, #2 and #3. Then we should be able to determine which adapter you have, and then we can (hopefully) find some Windows XP drivers for you.

USB drivers for Vista


Panasonic only lists XP and older drivers and no mention of Vista. We have the same problem with a couple of our older cameras (HP) but they were up front and told us they weren?t going to develop drivers for older consumer items. You might want to consider just keeping a PC running XP (or setting up dual boot) for your camera until drivers are released or you give up waiting. Not the answer you wanted but I think its probably the most practical and gets you running now.
