    The keyboard driver needs to be installed or installed again. I'll send you a link later for this.

    Can you narrow down your product ID to the following:
    » Compaq Presario C700 CTO Notebook PC
    » Compaq Presario C700EM Notebook PC
    » Compaq Presario C700ET Notebook PC
    » Compaq Presario C700LA Notebook PC

    Would you do me a favor and look on your Fkeys that have some lettering or symbols in the same color as your Fn key and see if one of them has an Flock icon, could be a padlock or lock. Press the Fn key and the specail Fkey at the same time.

    If that doesn't work, try pressing and releasing the Scroll lock key to toggle it off and see if that doesn't have an affect.

    I'll send the keyboard drivers next.

    Here is one of the downloads on this page. It updates the special keys for your laptop. Download this to a special folder such as c:\software\comapaq\keyboard\1\

    Otherwise you can't decipher the file naming scheme HP uses.

    You will need to install this update first and the the next update I'll send you for your keyboard.

    This is the second of the two keyboard updates located here. Create a subFolder named 2 under the keyboard folder you created earlier.

    Worldvet

    There are some security updates I'll send you as well.


  • Glenn Rogers
    Glenn Rogers Jul 28, 2008

    This update is for the HP automatic update software. You need to install this one first as there is a second too. Download and store these in a subFolder called Auto Updates.

    This is the page where the first one is located.

    This is the second of the two auto software updates. Place it in a folder under the first and name this folder update two. This is the page where the update is located.

  • Glenn Rogers
    Glenn Rogers Jul 28, 2008

    Go ahead and install these and let me know of any problems you've had.

    There are other updates you will want to install as well.

    I need to know what update version of XP you have XPSP1 or XPSP2

    You can find out by right clicking My Computer and then choose Properties. On the subsequent page you will see the version of XP you have. I suspect its XPSP2, but lets check anyway and then let me know.

Sound Driver of a Compaq Presario C700 Notebook PC


Reinstallations of XP sometimes do not install all of the sound files needed. Do a google search for UAA, it is Microsoft's audio file. Download it, install it and then run Windows update. The drivers for your machine should be under the Hardware section of the updates.

How to install window XP onto Compaq Presario C700


I would suggest first trying to make it a dual boot to make sure you can get all the drivers working. Vista has a resize function for the drive size, and you can install XP in a second partition (probably about half the drive would be nice) There are directions for that elsewhere. You can make a folder on the partition after you install the XP Windows system (Vista should see the XP partition with no problem) and download drivers as you find them in the Vista, which will still have connectivity software running, while XP might not connect until you find the ethernet and wireless drivers. I looked in Google, and found several sites with people looking for and finding the XP drivers that worked. You will need a working copy of the version of XP you want to install, with COA/install numbers for the XP, of course. Good Luck.
