In regards to the pc that you formatted and reinstalled with vista, is it vista compatible. Vista requires a minimum hardware requirements. Below are the minimum hardware requirements.

"modern" CPU, 512MB of RAM, and a Direct 9-class graphics card

Here is a link to an interesting article regarding vista compatibility. It is a little old but still worth the read.

How want to downgrade win vista to xp pro hp compaq v3000


If you have a Windows XP Pro installation disk, put it in the optical drive, restart your computer, on startup, go to BIOS settings (usually press [Delete] and set the optical drive as first boot device. Save changes and exit. When the computer starts it usually says to press any key to start from CD. Press any key and the windows installation will start. Make sure you format C: and you will downgrade to Windows XP Pro. If you want to upgrade to Vista again, you will need to know the keyboard sequence to start Vista from Its partition or have Vista install disk.

Audio drivers for compaq Notebook


its possible that there aren't any drivers for xp using that specific computer. most hardware on computers designed for vista will not have the xp drivers. if they arent on the compaq site or the hardware OEM site, they wont exist, your system will probably run better (in most cases) using the operating system it was built for, theres a whole list of things that can still go wrong for you (i.e the OEM making you do a recovery in order for support) ....i know its not good news but im 99% sure because ive seen alot of it in this past year

Format a compaq armada laptop


This is an older system so Vista is definitely out, it MIGHT load but it would be really slow.

Best bet is probably XP Home, you could install Windows 98SE but a lot of the newer programs will not work with it.

Boot to the installation CD, you will have the option to format the drive as part of the installation procedure.

Device Drivers for your computer are located here:

I suggest you download them and burn them to CD first because you network adapter may no work after the reinstall until you load these.
