Downgrading from Vista to XP is not a good choice. Specially HP Notebooks are not comaptible with retail version operating systems and its difficult to find the drivers and get it work.

I found a few. Please install in the same sequence and check. A restart is must after each driver installation.

1. Here is the link to download Intel Chipset Installation Utility for ICH9:
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp39501-40000/sp39549.exe

2. Here is the link to download Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family Graphics Driver:
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp40001-40500/sp40296.exe
It's always recommended to install UAA drievr, before installing Audio driver.

All driver for my compaq presario cq50 106ca for win xp. my hp have no driver at all only windows xp. someone can help? yaoshor_khay@yahoo.com


Hello,

Did you downgrade this from Vista? When you do that you run the risk of not being able to find drivers for the computer.

The only XP drivers that HP provides for XP are these:

CQ50-106CA Drivers XP

You may want to consider going to http://www.drivershq.com/XPDrivers.aspx and doing a scan to see if it recognizes your hardware and has drivers available. There is a fee though if you want to get them.

Thanks for using Fixya.
