  4. hi ,cool job u r doing .. can u tell me how can i install winxp on my laptop compaq presario cq40 425 tu


    pl pl pl help mee..

  5. Great post. All worked except sound. I tried various drivers for audio. Finally not sure which one worked. What I noticed was that if I disable and enable MS-UAA, my sound card would get detected and work but on reboot no sound. After a lot of googling I had to use the devcon trick, where we create a batch file to automatically restart MS-UAA during startup. More info here

  9. yes its true, but theres a way to install XP on it, my suggestion if you do not know to perform advance XP installation better not to buy it because if you want to try windows XP its require you install it using several process, even after install xp theres another problems to make the sound work, i only know a user that successfully install sound but using devcon, i posted the instruction from her. For your info CQ model officially build for vista not XP.

    U ARE A GENIUS.
    CAN YOU GUIDE HOW TO MAKE ONE TOUCH RECOVERY OF C DRIVE IN SOME HIDDEN PARTITION

    ReplyDelete
  17. COMPAQ CQ 40 425 AND CQ 40 108 HAVE SAME SET OF DRIVERS. I HAVE DONE IT MYSELF

    ReplyDelete
  18. Had the same problem & searched the internet for the solution. No joy there. Here it is....found it myself.

    1st you have to format the hard drive and use your windows xp cd etc etc.

    I installed windows XP home edition 2000 edition(no service packs) & had no sound.

    Forget the other suggestions & progressively install all the service packs via online downloads. When you have successfully installed service pack 3, bingo!..all the required drivers/firmware will be installed. Restart your computer once sp3 is installed & all will fine...I hope!

    Good luck.

  19. RECOVERY HIDDEN PARTITION: i suggest that you use tweakUI software to check you HDD (hidden) or directly use disk management(right click on my computer select manage). There you will see all partition exist on your computer. I never prefer recovery, if your system corrupt just download tuneup utilities (even trial it perform full function for 15 days) and it can help repair your system besides recover your files.

    anonymous: thank you=)

    cabgolf: thanks a lot=)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Hi kalpesh,
    After installing all the drivers you got blue dump means the BSOD (blue screen),
    Restart your computer and press F8 repeatedly until a options appear, select safe mode and uninstall your current drivers (except sound), then restart again, now install the drivers one by one, restart after each installation, the blue screen may cause from incompatible drivers, i think is an incompatible drivers installed in your laptop.
