Notebooks are tough. Some systems, like Toshiba, have a USB based dongle you can purchase to reset the BIOS PC startup password. I'm not sure how Compaq does it, but I would recommend you contact HP/Compaq. It's likely that they will require you to mail it in for them to take care of.

Sorry, I can't be of more help.

I have a compaq presario v3700 laptop. i installed a new win7 ultimate from win vista the original OS..and now i have a problem how i can use the camera..i need a software and shortcut to imaging...


Go to the HP Support site on the web and get yourself to the 'Drivers and Downloads" main page. Type in the p/n (product number) in the provided box and click go/arrow...whatever. When you're at your laptop's entry page for drivers, enter Vista as your operating system. If you're running 64 Bit W7 enter Vista 64. Almost all Vista Drivers work with W7. Look through the list of drivers until you find webcam/camera software/driver link. Download by SAVING to your desktop. Do not run the driver install from the HP/Compaq site. Double click the driver app icon on your desktop and follow the prompts. That should have you squared away.

Changing Vista to XP Pro on a Compaq Presario SR2180NX Desktop PC


SR2180NX has the Vista 32Bit OS from HP. The restore partition will always put Vista 32Bit back on if you use it. Windows XP can only be put on from scratch and I have done it while I still have Vista installed. One problem: there are no XP drivers under SR2180NX webpages. Do your research on the parts that are installed in the 2180 and any other HP machines that have the Windows XP operating system as the OEM OS. But First, check the Intel Site for the 945 chipset drivers (include the SouthBridge, too) under XP. Get them downloaded to a CD and burn the rest of the drivers you find for XP on the same CD. This way, you will have them ready when you are performing the down-grade to windows xp. After you are done with the XP install, you will still have access to the files & work you had done while in Vista. The Vista files are still readable. You might want to consider getting the Windows 7 Professional (not basic) available October 22, 2009. AND you will still have to get the Intel Downloads for Win7 any way, so why not make it a project and make it last for a few years. XP Support stops in 2014.
