Is a compaq presario 5000/8000 quick restore cd compatible with a compaq presario 2175us laptop?


I guess not. Drivers for compaq presario 5000/8000, are not the same as those for a compaq presario 2175us laptop. Now, actually that "notebook" looks to me rather outdated. You won't lose anything by trying. Worst case, format hard drive and install Windows XP SP3. Try to search internet for missing drivers.

Good day. I bought this Netbook with Windows 7 installed. I need to format and reload Windows XP as I have software that I need to use that only works with XP, I have an external "USB CD Drive"...


Hi neil720...

Installing the external CD Player...
You will go and start up and install Windows XP by doing he following:
Plug in your external CD drive, and let windows install it into the system...
Once the CD is ready to go, shut down the computer.
***************************************************************************************
You will first need to format your hard drive, I will give you instructions on how to do that.

1...To format your hard drive and install XP:
To set you computer back to factory fresh settings you will need to format the hard drive and install the XP operating system and the drivers.

1.Format the hard drive:
You do this by double left clicking on "My Computer",then double left click the main drive (normally C drive).
When the window pops open, you will choose "Format"
Keep in mind that once you format your hard drive you will loose all your files,programs,pictures,etc that you installed since the computer was new.
So make your back up on a portable hard drive,thumb drive,etc.
2. Once the formatting of the hard drive is complete you will need to install the XP operating system along with the drivers.
You will now insert the CD's into your external CD player starting with #1 first and continuing until all has been installed.
After all has been installed, shut your computer off and restart.
That will bring your computer back to Windows XP factory new condition as far as operating is concerned.
Please take time to rate me

How do i re install windows xp on my compaq presario 5000


If you place your XP OS disc in the DVD/CD drive and boot from it, let the OS disc format your hard drive and there you are, when it has finished, all done. XP on your hard drive.
All you have to do then is try and find the drivers you need. Good luck as XP is no longer supported.

Ethernet controller driver needed


You can download and install the required drivers from Dell's official website. Click on the link below:

Drivers & Downloads for Dimension 5150


On this page there are four files, download them all and install them. You should be able to use your network card after successful installation.

Note: If the above link is not working, go to www.dell.com. On the top right corner of the Dell's website click on 'Support'. A new page will open from where you choose Drivers and Download option. Next step is to choose your laptop model.

Ethernet not working after format and xp reinstall


Right-click the My Computer icon and select Manage, then go to the Device Manager in the list on the left and find the Network Adapter from the list on the right, right-click Network Adapter and select Uninstall. When you reboot, XP should find the Adapter and reinstall it automatically. Another reboot may be required.

If it still will not connect, go to the NIC Manufacturer's website and download the driver to removable media. The Driver Update option can be accessed in the Device Manager, but this time select Properties when you right-click the Network Adapter, and go to the Driver tab.
