Preferred Solution: Video drivers Presario 1234...

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

So I decided to update my bios when my new SSD (Kingston HyperX 3k 120gb) was performing lousy.i updated the bios and I used the Bios update found HERE which is listed as good for my system.Everything weemed to go smoothly until after the restart, I got the lovely 8 beeps, telling me that something is screwedup with the CMOS or the BIOS.I reset the CMOS jumper settingsRemoved the cmos battery for up to 30 minutesSwitched frommy BFG 500W power supply back to the 300w factory unitSwitched from my HD 6870 Video Card back to the factory unitUnplugged all ram modules and ran with every conceivable seriesRemoved all usb devicesIve never had issues before, and am running windows 8 without any issues,until the Bios update. I need to find out if it is in any way possible to recover from what seems obvious as a botched bios flash.

Answer:8 beeps and no video HP H8-1234 after Bios Update

My current idea is to re-install the bios at bootup.Ive tried loading all the files found in the bios update onto a usb 1gb and 8gb drive formatted as FAT32, no avail.Renamed the .rom to HPBIOS.ROM again nothing on either usbAttempted usingthe win key+B key power on trick Ive seen for hp laptops and had no luck.I've found that the motherboard BIOS or CMOS problem (ROM) has very little information anywhere available even though there seem to be quite a few HP desktop systems that have used this specific model of motherboard.If anyones got any ideas, Im open for suggestions.

I have looked on this forum and found that several other people have had similar issues getting their HP Pavillion h8-1234 to boot up after putting in their GEFORCE GTX 950 graphics card. I am having the same exact issue. I understand that many have said that updating BIOS is the way to solve that issue but the HP website does not have any drivers for me to install. I've gone through all of the recommended channels but there is no driver updates. Here is the link to where I've been told to search: but there is nothing there. Maybe the BIOS is not the issue and someone can recommend another way to solve the problem? Thank you all in advance.

Question: Presario drivers

I recently reformatted a Compaq Presario SR5110NX from Vista to XP. Everything went well except I'm missing some drivers. I did some research before the format just to be sure I would be able to get the drivers for XP and apparently they are fairly common so I went ahead. The mobo is an MCP61PM-HM and I'm missing the following drivers (listed in the device manager) :

Video Controller
SM Bus Controller
PCI Simple Communication Controller
PCI Device
PCI Bridge Device

The dial up modem (PCI Simple Comm. Cont. I'm assuming) is a Conexant RD01-D850. I read this post :

It was pretty awesome as far as listing links for all the drivers but I have a couple questions. In this post the mobo in question was the same but the Compaq computer model was different. Does this make a difference? Also, I downloaded three different modem drivers for the RD01-D850 and none of them seem to want to install. If I try and run the application that comes in the driver folder nothing at alll happens, and if I try to install the drivers through the wizard using the driver folder as the source it says the drivers were not found. Can anybody help? Thanks.

Answer:Presario drivers

This is your chipset driver:

This is your Video driver:

See if those takes care of your missing ones.

I've reimaged my Presario f700 down to XP and now I am having trouble with the drivers. I cant seem to find the Ethernet driver anywhere. I have followed this thread :

Vista to XP Downgrade Compaq/ HP F700/G6000/DV6900/DV6700/DVx7xx/DV9800 Series Laptop

But I get stuck on this part :
nForce 630a

DO NOT RUN THE SOFTWARE (SETUP EXE FILE). Instead, download the file and extract the files to a folder. Manually install the LAN Driver through the device manager.

You should beable to get ON-LINEvia your LAN connection. DO a full MS Update. You will need XP SP2. DO NOTinstall SP3 until ALL your drivers are installed and running correctly.

The link to download the driver does not work. It takes me directed to the page but says primary download site, which redirects me back to the main nvidia webpage.

So i'm not sure which driver to install...anyone know where I can download the ethernet driver for my presario f700 windows XP?

Hi guys wonder if any of you can help you with a query I have....

I am helping a friend with a Compaq Presario C500 (C542EA) laptop, essentially it came with Windows Vista and we want to run XP on it.

I am having some serious issues locating XP drivers for

PCI modem
Wireless NIC

Does anyone know what hardware this machine runs for these devices? Having hunted around the internet I am hitting brick walls attempting to find XP drivers for this machine. I am hoping this is not a situation where Vista needs to be reloaded on to the machine in order to get it up and running!

It seems that the HP website does have audio and modem drivers (but not wireless NIC) however when i have run the drivers it states that its not for the hardware installed!

Any help would be appreciated!


Answer:Compaq Presario C500 Xp Drivers

The HP site has some drivers for XP: (are these the ones you've tried?)

Try the Wireless drivers from the Vista drivers section, it may support other versions of Windows too:

Also are you sure that its a C542EA, double check the sticker on the bottom.

Hi guys!

I purchased a Compaq Presario A900 which came with Vista Home. As I am not comfortable with Vista, I want to shift back to Win XP but even after searching a lot, failed to find the drivers for the same.

Can you guys please help me to find the complete set of drivers for my notebook. Its very urgent and I will be highly obliged.

Thank you.

Answer:Win XP Drivers for Compaq Presario A900

A900 is the series number for your Compaq Presario laptop. Select the correct model number from this list and then advise what it is.


If you set up Vista with the Windows classic or standard mode instead of the aero mode, it'll look a lot more like XP and you'll probably be more comfortable using it. That's how I set up my Compaq Presario SR5450F desktop when I bought it last year with Vista. A couple of the devices didn't have XP drivers available, and the hard drive is SATA instead of EIDE, so I couldn't downgrade to XP if I wanted to.

Answer:Audio drivers Compaq Presario

I'm guessing from having an old Compaq from about 2000 with Win 98SE and looking at a pic of your motherboard on EBay. I think you need ESSOLO drivers. Try this procedure:

If your ESS device is a PCI device and embedded on the PC motherboard or notebook computer, use the following procedure to identify your device:

a) Download the ESS PCI device identifier utility
b) Unzip the utility to your desktop
c) Execute the ESPCI_ID.BAT file
d) Use windows explorer to find this file: C:\RESULT.TXT
e) Double click the file to open
f) Look for the &DEV_1xxx in the RESULT.TXT
g) If you see &DEV_1969, please download the correct ES1938/ES1946 driver for your operating system
h) If you see &DEV_1998 or &DEV_199A, and you DO NOT have a Dell notebook, you may download the correct ES1980 Maestro-3 drivers for your operating system.

Generic ES1980 Maestro-3 drivers on our web site are not for Maestro-3i ES1983, which is a Dell version of Maestro Audio device. Dell users have to visit Dell website ( for driver update.

8. Once you have identified which ESS chip ID is in the sound card in your system, you may download our latest drivers from drivers page. Or you may provide us the C:\RESULT.TXT file for further helpClick to expand...

So, recently, my mom gave me her old Compaq Presario C500 laptop. Before recently, it had Windows XP SP3 on it, with full driver installations, etc.

A little back story: My dad bought this computer for my mom. It had Vista on it. My dad Nuked Vista using DBAN ( and installed XP. He was up till like midnight getting drivers from tech support.

I got it, nuked it with DBAN by request of my mom, and reinstalled XP. The XP drivers available for the laptop were not base drivers, they were updates, AND only for certain things.

So basically, I need to know, should I download Vista drivers for XP, or will it fail?

Answer:Compaq Presario CQ57 Drivers

Hi: Please read the guide on where to find the hardware ID once you click on the Network Controller Device. You click on the network controller device. Then there are tabs on the top of the window. Click on the Details tab. Now you see a line labeled Property. There is a dropdown list that is defaulted to Device Description Drop down on that line and select the second item on the list just under the device description label and it will be labeled Hardware Id's. Then you will see in the window after you select hardware ID's a list of characters that look something like this: PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1502&SUBSYS_1494103C&REV_04PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1502&SUBSYS_1494103CPCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1502&CC_020000PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1502&CC_0200 I need you to post the top string of characters of what you see. So for this example, I would need this line: PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1502&SUBSYS_1494103C&REV_04 Without that hardware ID, there isn't a thing I can do to help you other than to post the links to about 25 different wireless card drivers until you find the right one that works. The problem with that method is sometimes trying too many drivers messes up the registry in your operating system and it can cause problems with installing the driver that is supposed to work.

Hello I’m new to this forum and this is my first post. I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction. I had to reformat my laptop, and I installed WIN98SE, but I did not use the Compaq startup/restore disk (I didn’t want all the Compaq software on it). The problem I have now is I can’t seem to find the drivers I need to restore all of my hardware…Video, Sound, Modem, USB, PCMCIA….. I’m just looking for the drivers, but I can’t seem to find them on the Compaq page (it is very hard to navigate). Any help that can be offered would be greatly appreciated.

Hi -I am another new computer illiterate, desperately hoping for help. I'm not sure what my mom needed to hide, but she would only give me her computer after she did a system restore. When I attempted to re-install the drivers (copies of originals) the first 6 went fine, and I am unable to continue after that. It is a Compaq Presario. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

not sure if this is the correct place to post my apologies if it is not. Here is my problem, I got a compaq presario 6000 desktop from a friend to fix, he had someone install windows xp on it, and the onboard lan internet is not working it needs the correct drivers. My problem is he knows nothing of the computer and has none of the original software. So I went to the hp/compaq page to download the drivers, problem is the pc only says it is a presario 6000. I have looked everywhere on the case and motherboard for the t code or sn# as the web page suggests. I have checked the system info and it only says it is a compaq presario, same in bios. Hopefully someone can help.

Hi there,

Im very new to this whole upgrade stuff

a mate (who knows computers) upgraded my Compaq Presario V3000 to windows 7, since i got it back its working a treat how ever i cant seem to get my mic working or the audio through my front earphone jack.

I have tried a few drivers, the HP site does not support drivers for this laptop with windows 7.

its the 64 bit version and yes my pc is also 64bit.

I have been through all the settings in device manager and it looks fine.

There are no little yellow triangles, under sounds video and game controls is
a pic of a speaker and hi definition audio device... so to me looks normal.

I have been through all the settings on my pc, but normally if i click on the speaker on my task bar it opens the volume control with a speaker level, mic level, headphones level etc, now its just levels for the laptop inbuilt speakers and something called sound systems ( no matter what i try and can not get anything out of setting the sound systems tab as the default so no idea what that is)

If any one has any ideas on how to get my headphone jack to waken and produce noise or my mic to open and do its job please let me know.

p.s my mate that installed this software has moved away as of the day after install and is unavailable for further assistance at this time.
Thanks in advance.

gang I've been reconstructing a cpq C306us [c300] notebook and having issues.
supposedly [yet to prove] the chipset here is a i945gm, and the controller 82801gbm. however when I download from hp the designated "INtel matrix storage manager' driver, it fails saying "wrong hardware". also, I have a bang in Device Manager for the "SM Bus". I searched HP and Intel for the right SM Bus driver and so far come up short.
I'm stuck.

I've been here before with another system, where in order to get XP to install I switched in bios the hard drive type to 'compatibility' mode instead of SATA. in that case I was later able to find the right driver for sata, install after the fact, and switch bios sata mode 'on'.
the SM bus driver issue is new to me however [or newer].

one issue is this chipset thing. in intel's ddownload center I do not see i945gm specifically with that syntax. what's up with that?

Answer:Presario C300, C306us SATA & SM Bus drivers?

You can use the chipset utility from intel for the 9 series.

I don't have time at this moment to find the rest, but it doesn't look good. From what I found out, the audio (Conexant SmartAudio 221) does not have an XP driver. Period. The driver does not exist. You can try a Vista driver by installing it through the Device Manager and using the "have disk" method. The same applies to the AR5007 Atheros wifi driver. Some versions of your laptop have a BroadCom wifi adapter. If your PC is one of these, a driver should be easy to find.
Good luck!

Hi, I have the same/similar problem as dude 1234. Firefox using 100% CPUI didnt want to steal his post so I made my own.I have doing a bit of research on different things for browsers, this amongst them. (Well I dont know that its the browser actually).Every now and then my computer seems to just grind away, fans rev to their limit, windows wont open and the whole system drags for ages then to a total stop.It seems as though it is a memory problem, but having read that post, I wondered if it was my browser? I have a Pentium 4 CPU 3.00 Ghz 1.5GB of RAM. My computer doesnt always play up like that but it has its moments.The easiest way to get past it is to close everything and then restart F/F, this does cure it but is really inconvenient if I have lots of windows open.Can I do anything to cure this phenomenon please?

Answer:Same as dude 1234 CPU Grinding away at 100%?

Well your computer is better than mine and, anyway, I have investigated and determined its not a processor or memory problem. Try using Opera browser and see if you think that eliminated the problem. I'd be interested to know."Browser" is the name of the software you use to download and display web material. Examples of browsers are:- Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, Chrome.In case you are not familiar with the term "software", it means a computer program. Computers have hardware (all the electronic bits), and software (all the instructions that are given to the hardware to make it do something useful). My apologies if I have over-simplified this, but it sounded like you needed to know.

Hello, I'm downgrading from 7 to XP, and I have network and graphic drivers ready on another partition so I can install them after the downgrade. I put my Windows XP SP2 CD in and boot from there, but after loading the files I get a blue screen.

I read on some other forums that you need to put SATA into compablity mode (IDE mode), and that you can do this in BIOS under System Configuration. But when I go to the section, there is absolutely no option for changing the SATA to IDE. I read some more and found out that you need SATA drivers for your PC, but I can't find any drivers for my computer online! :smileysad: . Can anybody give me the link for SATA drivers on my computer? (Compaq Presario CQ71-412EO)

Thanks :smileyhappy:

I formatted my Presario 5000 and installed Windows 98 (Windos ME was previously installed) but I can't find the drivers to make the sound card (which is on board) work. If someone could tell me where to find this software I'´be very thankful.

I had little response to my previous question
so I went into device manager and deleted the 2 network adapters, rebooted and let Windows reinstall. Windows created a new Local Area Connection (LAC4, 2 and 3 are gone). It reads limited or no connectivity and is using Linksys LNE 100TX Fast Ethernet Adapter, just like the previous LAC2. The previous LAC3, which used the WAN Network Driver never got reinstalled. I don't get it.

Since a Linksys adapter on a wired connection seemed bizarre I tried to find what the correct network driver should be.

I Googled "Compaq Presario 5400US" "ethernet driver" OR "network driver" and was taken to an HP drivers page, which I guess makes sense since HP now owns Compaq
This page has nothing listed for chipset or network adapters. Really? This is becoming maddening. What am I doing wrong? Can someone at least point me to a site to determine and download a network driver? Please!
