Re: Compaq Laptop Problem
I'll have you download the updates for your laptop once the system is trimmed down and the registry is clean. So, yeah it wouldnt surprise me that there are others. in fact a lot of notebook users end up in the same boat as you, it doesn't matter too much who made the machine. They all use Windows and have an Intel processor in them, therein lies the problem for the most part.
In your case, your ram only being 256 MB is a major component of trouble. You should have at least 1GB of RAM for XP Pro.
Here's the run down on Cacheman. If I gave it already I apologize for being repetitive.
Cacheman Program Window Tweak Tab Untick and or tick the following options the the Tweak Tab
Enable these, the others should be unticked (checked): Autorun Balloon tips Beep on Errors Filename Completion Font Smoothing Low Disk Space Checks System Restore Windows Key Autoend Tasks Create Last Known GC after bootup Don't restart automatically after Update Installations Group Similar taskbar buttons Additional critical worker threads=3 Additional delayed worker threads=3 Hung Applications timeout=3 Limit reserved bandwidth=5 Max IE connections per server=10 Show menu delay=140 Wait to kill application timeout=5 Wait to kill service timeouts=5 Compaq Evo N600c PC Notebook
Information: tick Auto Recover RAM from inactive applications If free RAM goes below 70 MBytes pause between recoveries 3 minutes tick Postpone, etc CPU threshold = 70%
Cache Tab select Windows controlled
Display: Tray Icon 1 / Alternate Numeric Ram Free Color and background (black is preferred) is up to you. Tray Icon 2 / Main (not alternate) Graph CPU Usage - All Color and background is up to you.
Hot Keys tick Recover RAM = Ctrl + Alt + R
Misc: Load cacheman at startup, tick this box leave others empty

Refer to your owners manual if one is provide about the bluetooth or is it (optional), in such case some laptops model will come with bluetooth ready with the lights and interface, however the bluetooth hardware card isn't install and need to be purchase separtly, if the card is installed already, then... I don't know call MSI up and beef with them.
Vista most likely will not work correctly on your laptop if 7 was preinstalled. 7 is a newer version of Windows and if you just installed Vista on top of 7 you will run into issues. If you formatted your hard drive first and then put Vista on you may be ok, however Vista and 7 have different drivers that come preinstalled. Everything that your laptop needs to run with everything that it came with will be already installed, therefor if you put an earlier version on you will not have what you need to run the hardware on your computer, they won't "match up". I would reccommend that you do a system restore and go back to the 7 that was originally on the laptop. You may be able to find the drivers on the microsoft website, or compaq website. I doubt that it will work for long. Try it and see what happens and let me know if you need further assistance, hope this was helpful
Hello, 1. OPEN YOUR "CONTROL PANEL"...THEN OPEN
"HARDWARE AND SOUND" 2. LOOK FOR AND CLICK OPEN "DEVICE MANAGER" 3. SCROLL DOWN TO '' SOUND,VIDEO AND GAME CONTROLLER'' 4. RIGHT CLICK "SOUND VIDEO AND GAME OPTION"...THEN AN
OPTION WILL COME UP SAYING..."SCAN FOR HARDWARE CHANGES"...CLICK IT
AND HEY PRESTO...YOUR SOUNDS AND VIDEO AND EVERYTHING IS WORKING! ITS AS SIMPLE AS THAT...NO DOWNLOADS OR CODECS OR FILTERS OR
ANYTHING NEEDED! If worst comes to worst you may have to update
the driver I had to do this after getting new windows
updates 1. Go to control panel 2. Go to hardware and sound 3. Go to device manager 4. Left click on sound, video and game
controllers 5. Double click on the sound/video program that
you run 6. Go to the driver and click update driver 7. Choose the top option and wait for windows to
find updates 8. A window should pop up in a few minutes
saying that windows has updated the following programs 9. Click ok
and you should be good
Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.
Have you tried updating the device?
My Computer,Right Click, select Properties,Hardware, check the devices drivers and update them. There is also a troubleshoot device option here.
Check in the control panel to make sure the touchpad is not turned off. It can be found in the mouse option.
If you go to Start All Programs, Control You can check for any problems here
You should be able to download drivers (the programs that make the hardware work) from Compaq from this site. You'll have to transfer them to the laptop via flash drive or other such device, and run each file needed individually, following any instructions. To be sure that you have drivers for everything installed, you can right-click on "My Computer" and select "Manage," then go to "device manager" on the left pane, which will show you all the hardware that windows sees attached. Anything with a yellow exclamation mark (probably) needs a driver - double click on it to see more information.
You can get the sound drivers in the laptop itself. U need to type in the start search as recovery manager and when the window is opened, click on the advanced options and select the option hardware driver installation. Search for the sound driver and select it and it get re-installed. Thanks and Regards Honey
