You can download the device drivers from the Compaq/HP WEBsupport/download page. Make sure you select your model laptop and the Windowsdrivers you require and install them. Click on this link to download thedrivers: - http://welcome.hp.com/country/au/en/cs/support.html
If this is the original operating system you can download the drivers at the hp support website.
Just type in your model number (can be found on a white sticker on the bottom of your laptop). The pci simple communications controller is the phone modem. And the vga graphic adapter is your video or video card.
To find and install the driver for the simple communications controller:
Go to Device Manager and click on the pci simple communications controller
Go to Properties and then Details. You will see a code like PCI/VEN_8086&DEV_27D8&SUBSYS... The VEN code means vendor and the DEV code means device: in the example the vendor is 8086 and the device is 27D8.
Once you have the two codes, go to www.pcidatabse.com. Enter the two codes and you should get the name of your hardware.
From there, you can search for a driver download for your hardware.
