..need drivers for old computer....


t_m_conway,

You can download the drivers to the computer you are using now.
One at a time. Keep them in one folder, where you know where they are at.


Then burn them to a disk. Many use thumb drives, but I'll pass.

Put the disk in the 'affected' computers optical drive. (CD/DVD drive)
Go to My Computer. Double-click on the drive letter, that corresponds to the optical drive.

One at a time, double-click on each file name. You are installing each driver, one at a time.

When you double-click on the individual driver file, there will be 3 small windows that come up; one at a time, and in order.

At the bottom of the 3 small windows, click on Next, Next, and Finish.
Then restart the computer.
(Start > Turn Off Computer > Restart)

Now go back, and Double-click on the next driver file. Install it.
And so on, until all driver files needed, are installed.

I appreciate you stated -
"Compaq Presario AMD Athlon 64 GE force 6150 LE"

,but in all due respect it doesn't state what is actually needed.
To break it down on what you stated,

1) Compaq - Computer manufacturer name
2) Presario - Model name
3) AMD - Processor, motherboard chipset, and graphics card manufacturer.

4) Athlon 64 - A line of AMD processors

5) GeForce 6150LE
Graphics chipset information.
The Nvidia GeForce 6150LE is a type of Integrated Graphics.

Integrated Graphics is also known as OnBoard Graphics.
ON the motherBOARD.

Indicates for one, that the graphics chipset is soldered directly to the motherboard, and not a separate graphics adapter card; which is removable.
Therefore replaceable. (Upgrade)

What is needed here, t_m_conway, is the model number.

This can be found on the Back of the computer, in a white Service Tag.
For Compaq computers, and HP computers, it is the Product Number that is needed. Model number information is contained in it, also.

P/N = Product Number.

'Armed' with this information I can guide you step by step, and not post a bunch of generic 'prattle', as I have above.

It is my belief that once you see an example, detailed out on here; that it will become sparkling clear as how to proceed.


Please post back in a Comment.

How do i fix blue scree error tha reads stop:0x0000007E


is this a recurring problem. There isn't much you can do, usually a software crash causes this,
maybe defrag the computer, uninstall any unneccary software, run a virus scan, etc. Sometimes it just happens, if it happening all the time, there maybe a hardware problem, or you may need to restore to factory settings.

Need an up grade for the processor


Well, there is not many places where you can buy a CPU for that motherboard. Also, you state that the current CPU is 250 MB but I think you mean the system memory is 256 MB. Looks like your CPU is 366 MHZ. You best bet is to look for a Pentium 4 motherboard/CPU and memory combo on ebay. You can probably find a P4 1.6 MHZ for barebones system for under $50.

<windows root>\system32\hal.dll is corrupt or missing


See if you can get into safe mode. If you can't then your system files are corrupted and you'll have to restore your computer back to factory defaults.

I believe on your compaq presario they have a built in factory restore and its either accessed by the F10 or F11 key when you first turn on the computer. You'll know when you first turn on the computer at the compaq logo screen.

Let me know if I can help you further.

Restore compaq presario sr1403wm to factory setting


I am sorry to say but there is no suggestion we can give on this topic. The problem with your computer is that the operating system you were using has crashed. You need to install a fresh copy of operating system on your PC.

My compaq laptop that i have just broke my mom bought it for me ot even a year ago.my sister jumped and fell on the keys and know my screen when it turn on is upsidedown the opposite that it usually is..


check your display settings. Most computers today have a nifty utility that allows the user to rotate the screen and even invert it completely. Could be located in your system tray (along with the clock) This can also be triggered via a combination of keystrokes, which was accidentally pressed when your sister fell on the keys.
