Question about Compaq Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I need The Software and Drivers that are suitable for the Compaq Presario A900. The Laptop came fitted with Home Premium and I want to upgrade to Vista Ultimate, but it will not let me do an upgrade and asks for a clean install and I don't have the software and drivers for the Motherboard.

    Many thanks Lee.

    I was able to solve the problem by talking to Microsoft.

    The A900 Compaq came with Home Premium already installed and Ultimate will not install over this software because it dosen't come with Service Pack 1. I downloaded this software from Microsoft and installed it into the Home version.

    Once the installed operating system had SP1, I was able to install Ultimate over the top of the Home Edition with no problems and no loss of data.

    Regards David

For drivers


If you go to compaq's site, they don't have any drivers for the sound & video for your laptop[ that go into xp, but they do show the drivers for vista. you could try these one by one to see if they work (sometimes they do) and if they won't, at least you have a list of the hardware that is in your computer, and you can look at the manufacturers site for each of these and you should be able to get drivers for xp from them.
