Hi.

Yes you should install the chipset driver first. It is always the first one to install on a freshly installed Windows.

I don't know if it is where you got your drivers but compaq.com will provide everything you need by choosing your laptop model in the support page.

Hope this helps!

I am giving away my daughter's old computer and want to format the hard drive so everything is gone. I have tried to do so, but keep getting an error message that the volume is in use by another program,...


Hi,

You cannot format the hard drive while it's in use by the operating system itself.
The best way to reformat the drive is with the XP install CD to fully reinstall the operating system. That will wipe all the settings, programs pictures, documents etc.

If you don't have an XP CD you will need to manually go through the computer and delete everything that you don't want the next owner to see.

Alternatively, you can take out the hard drive and then pass it on and leave it for the next owners to get a hard drive and install an operating system.


Regards.

Cannot play dvds. says my Windows Media Player cannot play the DVD because a compatible DVD decoder is not installed on your computer.


Chances are you need the proper codec to run the DVD. Software companies often write their own 'interpreter' software to read the format they use to encode videos/music files.

Trying doing a search on the internet for the type of file format Windows Media Player is trying to run, then look for the codec for that format. Unless the format is copyright protected, Microsoft should have the codec available on their website.

NTLDS missing when installing windows 7


Before tring to install Windows 7 I suggest you download (or your in law) from Microsoft a utility program that detects your hardware and tells you whether the system will support this RC version of Windows. Download "Windows6.0-KB947821-v4-x86 Update Readiness.msi" and run it on the system prior to installation. If your system is already damaged, install a base WinXP OS on it and try it. Good luck!

I can make a dvd it will play but no sound


Hi,
I think the problem is with the Codec.Different types of video formats require appropriate codec to play.I suggest you to install the require codec to play videos.You can download and install K-Lite Codec Pack, which include all the major video format's codec's.

You can download it from http://www.codecguide.com/download_kl.htm

Please try this solution and if you have any problem then revert back.

Thank you

WindowsXP not loading after installing Windows Vista Demo Version


You need to get rid of the Vista Demo, and reload xp. You need to keep one or the other I think, you can't keep both operating systems on the same drive. What were you thinking?
Did you install the vista demo as a dual boot setup? Doesn't sound like it.
I hope someone can help you, I can't.

WindowsXP professional, start up


Hi,

This needs some understanding of OS only. Don't worry.

Now, coming to ur first problem... u can change the bootup xp options by modifying the c:\boot.ini (be careful too...and u r right, it will not slow down ur pc)

:)

Have a nice day

I hope, my suggestion was helpful
