I recently put XP on a Compaq Presario C700 CTO that came preinstalled with Vista. I had to change some things in th Bios for Xp to install and now I need some drivers. Nothing is supported. I received links for various drivers someone told me i needed but none of them worked partly because i wasn't sure how to install them as the instructions were useless. The drivers I'm missing are Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus, Ethernet Controller, Modem Device on High Definition Audio Bus, Sm Bus Controller, Video Controller, Video Controller (VGA Compatible), and one Unknown device which I think is my wireless (Atheros 06X Wireless Network Adapter). Any help as to how I can get these drivers installed and get XP working would be greatly appreciated. This is what I was given.....
1. Install the pack of drivers called Drivers_exe. Installs everything but Adapters NETWORK
6. GET ON THE WIRELESS, OR IS THE SWITCH TO THE SIDE OF WIRELESS ICON
Back to update the driver for the wireless card. Inf folder inside the Wireless called "Atheros_AR5006X_Wireless_Network_Adapter_-_By_ComKerry" and I will be ready for the wireless orange to blue.
9. Install manually with the audio. Inf, which is located in the C: SWsetup/sp34386
10. Update Driver "Conexant High Definition Audio" with the driver. Inf file that is located in the folder Sound / Audio_Conexant_FINAL_-_By_ComKerry staying with the name "Conexant HD Audio SmartAudio 221"
