If you can get the machine to start up, download the service pack 2. The sp2 install should fix the problem. If you can't get the machine to start up, then you will have to acquire an XP disc in order to fix it.

Do a windows repair, you can do this by using your windows xp disk, make sure that the first boot is set to your CDROM in the bios. restart your pc, you will see the windows installation screen, select to repair windows and follow the prompts. If you still need help I will be more then happy to walk you threw the whole process. Just let me know.

Sound driver


You need to install the Windows operating system first.
Then you need to check what drivers that are missing or not working.
Then you need to download the drivers for your model laptop. You will need to get onto the Internet from a working computer to do this.
You can go to the Compaq/HP WEB site to download the latest drivers for your model laptop that suit your particular Windows operating system (ie, Windows XP, vista etc.).
Go to www.compaq.com

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.
