Hi, for installing the said devices, you have to use the driver CD of the laptop. If you have not got the motherbord driver CD contact the dealer.

thank you

We need re installation driver installer disk for mother board compaq serie ep sb 440 bx chipset

The computer has an Intel 440BX chipset on it. Chipset drivers are built into 
Win ME or later, required from for Win 98 or NT. You'll also need 
to identify the audio, network and video drivers and possibly obtain drivers for 
them as well. 

Try the HP web site for info about the drivers, many of which can be downloaded 
there. HP did not trash the Compaq Deskpro driver downloads when it bought up 
Compaq. HP and Carly have trashed up just about everything else tho in the last 
3+ years..

Hi, I have Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit running on my PC. After installation unable to open Egypt III game. Waiting for your kind reply.. Kind Regards, Vijay

Maybe the computer did not pass the hardware and video requirements for the game to run seamlessly. Check the requirements of the game and make sure that the computer you are trying to install it to passed all the memory, ram, video and sound card requirements.

Repeated message "windows cannot load OmnisuperCam" Followed instructions and reinstalled carefully twice. Photo Impression 6 loads and is active. OVT does not appear in control panel 'scanner and camers'


This often happens because Image Copier installation must be done in exact order as described in the instruction manual. To fix the problem you need to uninstall and reinstall everything back in right order.Also remember to restart the system when required.
  1. Unplug the image copier
  2. Uninstall the driver (remove from installed scanners and remove driver files).
  3. Uninstall PhotoImpression6
  4. Restart your computer.
  5. Install the driver,.
  6. Restart computer
  7. Reinstall PhotoImpression6 software.
During installation ensure that you authorize the system changes when asked. If possible disable any security software.

If that does not fix the problem, then the registry must be cleaned of any entry related to the scanner software. This is rather difficult to be done manual. You can try doing a system restore to a recent date before the problem started after uninstalling everything, and then uninstalling again if needed (application and scanner are there after SR), and finally reinstalling everything in order. If that does not work you can try a registry cleaner or reinstall the system.

Here a copy of the manual.

I am unable to find a location to download the driver for this Hitachi SATA drive. My WinXP install will not work without it. The hard drive is on the computer I am trying to reimage. All the driver...

OK simply get yourself a XP SP2 Install DVD this doesn't require SATA drivers, and will install on any drive at all. If the drive is already formatted and has an operating system, you should not need a driver either? If you cannot address the drive it is probably damaged in such a way, that it cannot be mounted.

Hi there. My name is Alex and I am here to help try and solve your problem.

Its not easy to find XP drivers for the latest compaq notebooks. To help find the exact model number for your sound driver, you will need to download a program such as (AIDA32 or Everest) which gives you a detailed listing of the hardware installed on your notebook. Once you have installed one of these programs, open it and select sound card. You will then find the exact name for the sound card installed in your machine. Once you have the name, look on that manafacture's website and see if you can download it. If you can't then you can download drivers from This website requires a free registration.

I hope I have been some assistance to this problem. Please let me know if you experience any more problems.
