Question about HP Compaq nx6110 PC Laptop

2 Answers

Hi i've just upgraded my Compaq nx6110 to Windows 7 from Windows XP and my audio isn't working. I've tried installing all the codecs and drivers i could find for my multimedia audio controller but none is solving the problem. I always hit the same wall "This driver is not compatible with your O.S." What should i do? Downgrade back to XP? Buy a new laptop? Please advise.

Hello When I upgraded, here is what I had to do, First go to Device Manager, by clicking Start, Right-Click My Computer, go into device manager see if you have an exclamation mark for your sound, if so, go to HP's site and see what they suggest is compatible with Win 7. There may be more programs to update as well. Hope this helps you.

Depends on the usage you give it. If you don't use very heavy and CPU dependent programs and don't want to spend your money you should downgrade back to XP.
But if you feel like you need more power for the software you use and can spare a few bucks you should definitely invest in a new PC. That PC is quite old and will start limiting you a lot if you need it on a regular basis.

Tried installing xp, ever since at boot up it says 'invalid system disk'...


You will probably have to get another XP disc and do it.The one for your desktop isn't valid for a fresh install on your laptop i don't believe.

Monopoly platinum collection cd will not work. It states that we do not have indeo codec for windows 7. It says contact hasboro for this info. Any suggestions


Actually Indeo Codec isn't supported for Microsoft Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Mac operating systems.A long time ago they were supported but the Ligos Corp discontinued using it.Here's an article about the Indeo Codec http://www.ligos.com/index.php/home/support/indeosupport .Indeo Codecs are not compatible with any 64-bit version of Windows operating systems. Ligos decided that when Windows 7 was born that Indeo Codecs were no longer going to be supported. Ligos asked that anyone that had the Indeo Codec contact Microsoft support http://support.microsoft.com/ to get the latest version of Indeo Codecs that may already have been installed on computers.But remember that Indeo Codecs IS NOT supported/compatible with any version of Windows 7. Ligos Corp only distributes the Indeo software for legacy applications still requiring its use in Windows 95, 98, ME, XP and NT/2000 operating systems.Personally I have never had a problem playing a game on my husband's Windows 7 64 bit laptop but we've always used a certain codec pack http://www.softpedia.com/get/Multimedia/Video/Encoders-Converter-DIVX-Related/ACE-Mega-CoDecS-Pack.shtml .When you install the codec pack pick the professional version installation of it....it gives you everything all the codec you need to watch/play anything.Make sure every type of codec/file association is checked.Scroll all the way down until you see something about antivirus...you may uncheck that...if you keep it checked.after the software install it will run a virus scan.The option is up to you.GOOD LUCK and have fun claiming Monopoly properties. :)

I have drivers for windows vista but they can not be installed on windows 7. I need install my router on windows 7


If you have the Windows Vista or Windows XP driver, try installing in Compatibility Mode. Here's a tutorial I've posted recently (click HERE.), but please select Windows Vista instead of Windows XP. There isn't problem even if you select Windows xp, but since it's windows vista driver, that should work perfectly.

Let me know if you need further help.

Good Luck.

My Acer Aspire 6920G does not detect nor play bluray discs after switching to Windows 7. I may be missing drivers but have no clue what and where to get them. Please help.


Hi goodevening

there so so many reason why does not detect a blueray disc after you switching windows 7
1st may be your cd/dvd driver have a problem,
(solution) try to use other cd/dvd driver
2nd may be the window 7 installer you've use have a missing file.
(solution) try to re install the o.s but dont use the same cd you've use try other installer.
3rd your blueray disc is the problem
(solution) use your blue ray disc in other p.c window xp if running in xp try to use other pc using a window 7, if running in other unit may be your pc need to upgrade.

Hi,

The VGA Adapter that is installed in this computer is Intel 915GM. As it is, your HP Compaq NX6110 was designed for Windows XP.

Even if your laptop's processor meets Windows 7 requirements, some of its components might not, as such your laptop's VGA Adapter. Intel so posted themselves that Windows 7* drivers are not available for the following older Intel® graphics controllers. And one of them is your kind of VGA Adapter. You may double check this information from the HP Website through this LINK.

I suggest you downgrade your Windows 7 back to Windows XP so you can maximize its capability and use it as it was designed for.



I hope this works for you. Kindly reply/comment for further assistance. Good Luck!
