    My machine (HP 530) won't detect HDD and can't read from the CD rom. I have changed the SATA native to disabled - as most threads on the net suggest - and still can't install Win XP. Any suggesions plis?

Downgrade windows 7 to windows xp on compaq presario cq56


> downgrade to XP

Bad idea. Your CQ56 laptop was "designed for Windows 7". not for XP or Vista.

The only device-drivers on COMPAQ's web-site:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=4326711

are for installing Linux, to replace Windows 7.

If you did install Windows XP, you'll probably have 800x600 video, no sound, no wireless, and no wired-network access. Not good.

So, do *NOT* try to "downgrade".

Put XP disk in CD-ROM and reboot the computer.

Click yes to install XP. It will tell you there is a system already installed on C drive. You select to install XP on C drive. It will ask if you want to format C drive, you select full format.

XP will then install

Could not find media device


Updating audio drivers Select one of the options below to locate the available audio drivers if you already changed the operating system and you are experiencing sound problems.
  • Go to the HP Drivers and Downloads page and search for updated drivers for your model. Be sure to select the correct operating system.
Or download Conexant High-Definition Audio Driver » ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp40501-41000/sp40762.exe
  • If the computer is upgraded to Vista, use HP Update to scan for updated drivers. To use HP Update, click Start , All Programs , HP , HP Update , and then follow the on-screen instructions.
  • If HP has not released specific audio drivers for your operating system, use the Microsoft Windows Update utility, or search the Microsoft web site for generic drivers for Vista. To use Windows Update, click Start , type update into the search field, select Windows Update from the list when it becomes available, click Check for updates , and then install any available updates.

V3424au presario notebook update


This is possible but will take some patience. Install Windows XP & Service Pack 2 Then check what drivers are NOT installed by going to device manager. Then go the the Compaq page that lists the drivers for Vista: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=2093&lc=en&cc=uk&dlc=en&product=3446906&lang=en Make a note of the name/model of these drivers and search for the XP equivelent usually by visitng the device manufacturers website. Im sorry this is complicated and long winded but its the only way.
