You will need to go to the compaq support website for this model:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=228&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=238271&lang=en
Then download all drivers and install them . Your notebook will be faster after this.

Changing Vista to XP Pro on a Compaq Presario SR2180NX Desktop PC


SR2180NX has the Vista 32Bit OS from HP. The restore partition will always put Vista 32Bit back on if you use it. Windows XP can only be put on from scratch and I have done it while I still have Vista installed. One problem: there are no XP drivers under SR2180NX webpages. Do your research on the parts that are installed in the 2180 and any other HP machines that have the Windows XP operating system as the OEM OS. But First, check the Intel Site for the 945 chipset drivers (include the SouthBridge, too) under XP. Get them downloaded to a CD and burn the rest of the drivers you find for XP on the same CD. This way, you will have them ready when you are performing the down-grade to windows xp. After you are done with the XP install, you will still have access to the files & work you had done while in Vista. The Vista files are still readable. You might want to consider getting the Windows 7 Professional (not basic) available October 22, 2009. AND you will still have to get the Intel Downloads for Win7 any way, so why not make it a project and make it last for a few years. XP Support stops in 2014.

Is that the original cd came off on the box when you buy it. If yes it should be ok.. If not the the cd is wrong..there is no way you can use the cd key anymore. you need a new OE with cd key.

Bootsafe error on hp compaq notebook notebook pc while booting


Boot from the XP disc and press R at the first screen. This takes you into Recovery Console. Run these commands:

fixboot c:
fixmbr
exit

The computer will restart and hopefully it will load Windows.

If not, is your computer making clicking sounds?

Invalid code, and wrong product


Sounds like you have 2 legitmate choices.

Either install WIndows ME on the system since that is the OS that shipped, or purchase and install a retail copy of Windows XP
