1 Answer

Driver updates Hi, do you know where i can get free driver updates, like realtek, and a host of others for windows xp. I tried hp drivers updates, but it doesn't download. windows xp home was reformatted on to a hp media center desk top computer. The xp home CD is brand new, but doesn't seem to format all the drivers on to the computer, and hp has all the driver updates, but like i said wont download them. It does download from other sites. so do you know any good website that offers free driver updates and downloads. Thank you

My computer is compaq pc model CQ3140IX with windows xp. i want to install my sound drive but your site is providing sound driver only for vista and windows 7 and not for windows xp............... so what...


Windows update will often install or update sound drivers. If this doesn't work go to this page and view the help videos towards the bottom of the page. If that doesn't help go to this guide and see if the solution is there. HP provides several different types of solutions. You may also be able to find the realtek driver here at the realtek site. If you install this driver than try Windows update again and see if it gives you an updated driver. Provided you didn't find the driver at Windows Update to begin with.

Hope this helps!

I tried to install realtek high definition audio driver........but during the installation it asked for UAA HD Audio bus driver ....how can i obtain it for "compac presario SR 1931 IL"....its OS...


If you were to log on to the hp.com web site, usually one is able to download if available, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, list of Dealers, for spare parts and service, Driver downloads and Installation Instructions as required.

This is the best way of ensuring up to date drivers for your system and they are free of charge!

There are no XP drivers to be found with Microsoft as XP is no longer supported.

Some manufacturers may have a limited number of Drivers still listed.

I hope this helps.

I have compaq presario Model CQ50-130US. I trying to find its drivers but invain. Please help.


(1) SATA DRIVER

"32-bit Floppy Configuration Utility"

filename = f6flpy3286.zip

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?ProductID=2101&DwnldID=17061&lang=eng

Unzip the contents, add one component (iaAHCI.inf) into your nLite (a free slipstreaming program) slipstream build and you will avoid Blue Screen of Death when you try to install WinXP. Note: select Intel(R) ICH9M-E/M SATA AHCI Controller when you add iaAHCI.inf to your slipstream. Or you can just add all the drivers.

After you get XP up and running, you can install the rest of the drivers for the notebook:

(2) CHIPSET

"CHIPSET_INF Update Utility - Primarily for Intel 4, 3, 900 Series Chipsets"

filename = infinst_autol.zip

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&ProductID=2991&DwnldID=16026&strOSs=44&OSFullName=Windows*%20XP%20Professional&lang=eng

For the executable version (filename = infinst_autol.exe), use this link from Intel:

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/confirm.aspx?httpDown=http://downloadmirror.intel.com/16023/a08/infinst_autol.exe&agr=&ProductID=816&DwnldId=16023&strOSs=&OSFullName=&lang=eng


(3) GRAPHICS

"Intelâ® Graphics Media Accelerator Driver for Windows* XP (zip)"

filename = win2k_xp14364.zip

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?ProductID=2991&DwnldID=17116&lang=eng

You'll unzip the contents of that zip, and then point your drive update to the folder with those contents to update your graphics.

(4) AUDIO (2-step process)

(a) Conexant Patch (do this first)

"Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) High Definition Audio class driver version 1.0a available for Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, and Windows 2000"

filename = kb888111.exe

http://www.filewatcher.com/m/kb888111.exe.682200.0.0.html

(b) Install audio drivers

"Conexant Audio Driver for Windows XP"

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/genericSoftwareDownloadIndex?lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&softwareitem=ob-10516-1&printable=no&encodeUrl=true&

(5) NETWORK ADAPTER (wired)

Realtek RTL8100E/RTL8101E/RTL8102E-GR/RTL8103E(L)/RTL8102E(L) NIC Driver 5.714

filename = PCIE_Install_5714_0216.zip

http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/NETWORK-CARD/REALTEK/Realtek-RTL8100E-RTL8101E-RTL8102E-GR-RTL8103E-L-RTL8102E-L-NIC-Driver-5714.shtml

(6) NETWORK ADAPTER (wireless)

Atheros AR5007 802.11b/g WiFi Adapter
Atheros AR5006 802.11a/b/g WiFi Adapter
Atheros AR5009 802.11a/g/n WiFi Adapter
(version 7.6.0.114)

Xp or linux couldnot load in my laptop


I've successfully installed XP SP3 on a DV5Z (custom build). Here is what I did, you will need to check that your DV5Z has the same components before using these drivers. 

Step 1 Create an XP boot disc 
Get the AMD motherboard/SATA drivers slipstreamed into an XP SP2 installation disk. I use NLite for this from http://www.nliteos.com 

Drivers are available at: 
http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Support/Motherboard/Driver_DownloadFile.aspx?FileType=Driver&FileID=3517 

Other forum posts have more information on how to create the disc but I found NLite pretty easy to use. I suggest slipstreaming the SP2 patch into your installation disc. 


Step 2 Install XP 
Install XP from a Bootable disc you created using NLite. Get XP working and upgrade to SP2 if your installation disc wasn't already SP2. 

You should see all the devices now in Device Manager in XP, but with exclamation marks. 


Step 3 Get the XP drivers/software 
The HP Compaq 6735s shares many components so you can get many drivers from this link: 

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=3687622&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=368762
1&swLang=8&taskId=135&swEnvOID=1093 


Audio UAA bus driver sp33867 Install this before upgrading to XP SP3 
HP Software update sp38874 
Synaptics touchpad sp39032 
Wireless assistant sp39374 
Quicklaunch 6.40F1 sp39425 
XP SP2 updates sp39429 I guess these will be in XP SP3 
Driveguard software sp39602 
Webcam driver sp39606 
Driveguard driver sp39738 
AMD CPU driver sp40535 
AMD SATA driver sp39719 

The following is on other laptop models but you can just search for it manually or use the following link: 

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=US&swItem=ob-62438-1&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=3687621 

Audio IDT driver sp39671 

Drivers from other sites: 

1) Realtek Ethernet driver 
http://www.realtek.com/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=13&PFid=5&Level=5&Conn=4&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false 

If the link doesn't work you want the PCI Express versions fromhttp://www.realtek.com 

2) AMD Dual-Core Optimizer 
http://www.amd.com/us-en/Processors/TechnicalResources/0,,30_182_871_14098,00.html 
If the link doesn't work look around on http://www.amd.com 

3) ENE CIR driver version 1.3.306 
http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/Other-DRIVERS-TOOLS/Others/MSI-GX600-08-ENE-CIR-Driver-133060.shtml 
I found that the 1.3.306 Vista driver works fine on XP but newer Vista drivers do not. I couldn't find an XP driver 

4) Atheros Wifi AR5008 driver 
http://www.atheros.cz/ 

5) Realtek Card Reader 
http://www.realtek.com/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=15&PFid=25&Level=4&Conn=3&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false 

If the link doesn't work look around on http://www.realtek.com 

6) ATI graphics 
Get these from http://www.ati.com you need to get the Integrated chipset version if you have HD3200 graphics. 

7) Realtek Audio Codec 
http://www.realtek.com/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=14&PFid=24&Level=4&Conn=3&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false 

I installed both the ATI HDMI Audio device and the Windows XP driver, you may only need the ATI HDMI. 


Step 4 Installation 
Install the drivers first (after devices have been detected), then the software. You will need to force install some of the drivers by going through Device Manager but most of the drivers have installation programs. CANCEL ANY DETECT HARDWARE DIALOG BOXES TO AVOID AUTO-INSTALLING THE WRONG VERSION OF A DRIVER. 

You will also need to carry out a registry fix for the wireless LED. Copied from another post: 

"For the Wireless LED its a little trickier. If you can find the root directory for your wireless network adapter like Paddy MacSeamus mentioned above its pretty simple. Follow his directions until you find your Wireless Network Adapter listed next to DriverDesc. In that same directory, i.e., 0003, add these Dword values just like you did above: 
New-> Dword 
Value Name=gpioFunc0ActHi and Value Data=0 
Click Ok. 
New-> Dword 
Value Name=gpioPinFunc0 and Value Data=3 
You are done. These values should be seen in the same window as DriverDesc and the name of your Wireless Network Adapter. The LED will work correctly after you disable and re-enable your wireless." 

After doing all this, my DV5Z works correctly except for the following: 

- Mute button LED always on orange 
- No on-screen display of volume/mute etc. You can use Microsoft Intellitype (use the Digital Keyboard device and download this) instead of the HP software - see other forum posts if you need more info on where to find this 
- QuickPlay key doesn't work. Presumably this can be fixed by installing the QuickPlay software for another notebook eg DV6000 series but I've not tried this 

One final thing - I was given incorrect SP details by an HP person on an online chat session and told to refer to manufacturer websites for other drivers. The latter is incompetent but acceptable in my view, whereas the former is clearly unacceptable (why give out incorrect details on their own drivers and pretend they're doing me a favour?). 

Good luck!

I have an eMachines T3616 with Vista on it and want to change to XP-Pro. Vista is just too darn slow. The problem is the drivers. Any ideas? TYIA, Russ


i think the only problem you encounter is about the sound driver. Because the other driver is plug and play for the other devices.
Open the link below and download the realtek audio driver.
Good luck....
