Hello,

same if you use winxp then you should install the drivers to work all hardwares,

You should install the wireless drivers, you can find it here:

however if this still not work you recommended to use win2000 for smooth operation.

No need for you to uninstall XP and go back to 2000, all you have to do is install the XP drivers for the components that are not working.

for you to be able to know what are the components inside your computer, go to system information, look for the devices that are not working so that you will be abel to download the drivers for each specific device in your computer. because once you have the specific models and brands of the components in your computer, it will be easier to get the XP drivers online.

to go to system information, click start, accesories, system tool then syste, information.

good luck, hope this helps.

Hi,

For your Compaq NC6220, Win XP drivers are here. Alternately, if you are reverting back to Win2K, then there should be no issues as most other drivers for other OS are here.

On the WiFi, you need to determine which hardware the NC6220 is using. To my understanding, depending on the regional version, they could be IntelPro or Broadcom.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    Open the device manager, any devices that need driver will have a yellow question mark on them. You can find a complete set of drivers for your machine running XP, plus updates, and patches, at the link I posted in my previous response.

Drivers not found.


Your Compaq came with Vista installed. Finding drivers for XP Pro with SP2 seem to be very troublesome. Somewhere HP Compaq has these drivers for you laptop. If you call them & they find out you bought XP Pro they will not support you in finding the proper drivers for XP Pro. How ever you can call & ask what it will cost for a recovery CD for XP Pro w/SP2.
Click the link to Compaq & listed is your laptop & what software & drivers are listed. If you need other drivers that are not listed, post what you want I'll try & find them for you. Please be as detailed as possible.

Can't reinstall xp pro on my hp compaq nc6320


Stephane, I ran into the same problem after wiping out my Compaq nc6320 and trying to install XP Pro. The fix is to disable SATA Native mode. To do this: Enter F10 Setup then System Configuration>Device Configurations>SATA Native Mode and disable it, save the changes and now you should be able to install XP Pro. Remember, when I did this the drive was blank, I don't know if that makes a difference or not. Best of luck! Bryan P.S. If you want to enable SATA native mode after you have installed XP Pro check out this link: http://forums1.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=1042050&admit=-682735245+1161793137260+28353475
