Unistalling Microsoft VISTA HOME Edition


Are booting the laptop from the XP CD? If so it should just give you an option to delete partitions then format and install starts. If you try installing XP after Vista has loaded it wont let you as XP is older. Cheers from Scott

Sound driver installation failed


Maybe the sound driver is not designed for you OS or hardware. You can check the compatibility before installing.

Best drivers for compaq presario m2000


dear jeff,
please check if it works when using earphones.

if u are using win-xp home editon service pack2, some onboard sound cards do not function properly, meaning that installation of drivers appears to be working fine, but the internal handling leads to a no sound problem.
hook up your laptop to the internet and get all available windows updates from microsoft.com using the automatic update function, reboot and set the volume like described in 1st solution1

good luck

How to install windows xp sp2 on compaq v3239tu


That happens because the BIOS uses a SATA controller that is not included in Windows XP install disk.

Usually you can solve the problem going to BIOS settings and changing SATA/RAID settings.Check your BIOS settings, and disable SATA RAID mode.This is done in different ways depending on the BIOS.

On HP/Compaq computers for example you press F2 on startup to enter BIOS, then disable SATA mode on bios settings.
On other makes the procedure can be slightly different.


Another way to fix the problem, is by creating your own XP setup disk with SATA drivers included, see:
Resolving "Setup did not find any hard disk drives" during Windows .

Audio driver for C740TU,compatibale with win XP sp2


Hi,

For a Compaq Presario C740TU Notebook PC running Windows XP, audio drivers would be for Conexant High-Definition Audio. Importantly, SoftPaq Number SP31994, "Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) Bus Driver for High Definition Audio," (or later) must be installed on the notebook before installing SP32823.
  • sp31994.exe 1/1 (6.12M) (ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp31501-32000/sp31994.exe)
  • sp32823.exe 1/1 (6.12M) (ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp32501-33000/sp32823.exe)
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

How can i install XP sevice pack2


1) Service Pack 2 is a service pack, not an operating system - you first have to install XP itself, which you'll have to buy.

2) It's entirely possible that there are no XP drivers available for one or more components of your laptop, so XP won't install on it. (Linux probably will.)
