Question about Compaq PC Desktops

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

Can I run Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium on my HP Compaq Presario SR2170NX PC Desktop


This computer came with Vista Basic. You can upgrade Vista Basic to Windows 7 Premium but it depends on your hardware. Go here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/downloads/upgrade-advisor Run the upgrade advisor and follow their advice.

Have Windows ME,seems to be outdated. Do not make software for it anymore. Would like to upgrade to Vista.Can't hook up anything to it. Have to be Vista or XP. Which is better for a Compaq Presario 5000


The Compaq Presario 5000 is not powerful enough to run Vista so XP is your best bet. I assume you have the standard 512MB RAM which will be fine for XP Once you outgrow that you'll need to go for more powerful hardware. By that time the new Windows 7 should have been officially released.

MY LAPTOP COMPAQ PRESARIO A900 DOES NOT RECOGNIZE MY SONY HANDYCM DCR HC40E WHEN CONNECTED THROUGH USB CABLE


Make sure you install the drivers that goes with the handy cam. Generally when you plug something via usb into a pc, it'll try to find the drivers but if it cant, you need to install the drivers and then reconnect. Those are usually located on the cd that comes with the handycam. Otherwise go to this link
