HP Compaq nx9030 Windows 7/XP Drivers




HP only released windows xp drivers for this model. If you plan to upgrade into Windows 7, you will see certain drivers not installed since most hardware (from Intel) no longer support Windows 7. So here  I posted the drivers you will need for Windows 7. For windows xp, there are some drivers not listed on HP download site, normally if a driver not listed mean it is automatic or not required, but I doubt that so I added drivers for graphic and chipset (the driver for graphic and chipset for Windows xp is available on HP database but it just not listed for nx9030.) If you want to see the driver released from HP, just go to the Hp support and select - support - drivers - Laptops - HP compaq Notebook PC - HP 9000 and you will see nx9030 is on the list.  The original drivers released is similar from what I listed here, only the graphic and chipset is missing form the download list.

Some Notes:
1. Base on my experience with notebook audio drivers, If it using Conexant audio, it rewuire MS-UAA to be installed first. If your windows XP audio installation failed you may need to install MS-UAA first, you can download it here.
2. Graphic driver for windows 7 Requires several steps to install, but you can try manual installation (the same method to install audio) using your original windows XP drivers.
3. If you don't use your Fax modem, you can skip the modem installation.
