I downgraded to xp on my c508us and I'm having

I downgraded to xp from vista basic on my c508us and I'm having trouble with the Wireless driver. I downloaded the wireless assistant that is listed on the Compaq site but that did not fix the problem. Does anyone know of a link to a driver I can use?

Open Device Manager from Control Panel and check there are no yellow exclamation marks on any drivers. If there are then you need a new driver.


You need to goto the manufacturers website, find their support section and there should be a list of drivers for your specific machine. Installing these should resolve your problem. I have a list of links to most manufacturers drivers on my website.
Hope this helps,

    i have done that and still no solution as I stated I downloaded all the applicable driver directloy from the Compaq/hp site. I believe that the problem lies in the "Downgrade" being that the c508us compaq laptop was originally introduced with the Windows Vista Basic as the OS and I went to XP I am having compatibility issues I have been able to install correct drivers for everything EXCEPT the wireless / WLAN bluetooth If there is any out there that has a solution please inform me.

Can you downgrade from vista to xp on an acer t180?


Of course you can.
The only concern would be drivers, but all drivers that exist for Vista exist for XP as well. Just go to Acer's download page (link) and download all necessary drivers before you downgrade. (this is especially important for your Chipset and LAN drivers, so you have them handy when you reinstall.

The site is a little it confusing, but after you chose "Desktop -> Aspire -> Aspire T180", you will see a small drop-down menu, where you can choose your operating system and your language.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Downgrade vista home basic to windows xp Pro.


Look up your laptop on HPs website. Confirm that there are XP drivers for your laptop before doing this. It is POSSIBLE to downgrade, but prepare to become one with Google. If HP has no XP drivers, then youll have to manually search for the drivers. If you have to go hunting, use a program called Everest to identify your hardware. In some cases the Vista driver will work for XP (you may have to force install). Good luck.

Yes you will get all the drivers here
http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_4315.html
However only Vista Premium and Vista Ultimate users can perform a direct downgrade. You can start a fresh installation from a bootable disk of WinXP. Be aware that this will replace the Vista with XP.

Presario c508us unknown device on downgrade vista to xp


Downgrading to XP I take it? A Microsoft/Windows update should pick up the device if you manually initiate the update and choose "Custom" for type of update. You will see Hardware and Software updates in addition to the Critical/Security updates that are automatically installed and XP SP2 should/could pick up the device in question. You'll be provided the chance to add these additional updates before reviewing and installing them.
Good luck.

Go to your pc manufacturers website, search for the driver that matches your exact cd rom and operating system, write it down word for word. Uninstall any left over old drivers as these will conflict. Load the new driver, and your pc should run fine.
