XP drivers for compaq V6205nr
#1
MyBB 
Hi... I hope you can help me.
I am trying to downgrade from Vista to XP Pro, SP2.
I've never done this before and I already wiped Vista and loaded XP.
(I don't have Vista backed up... oops.)
So now I find my drivers were wiped, and HP doesn't make XP drivers for my machine.
Help!
Are there drivers for a different laptop that will work with mine?
Thanks for any help you can give.
:)

Dave,

One of the links is broken... the one for the chipset.
I searched the site (nvidia) and found a driver, but can't tell whether it is for the chipset, or the video.
Here's the link for the driver I found...
http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_175.19_whql.html

Is this the chipset driver?

Also, my laptop is amd, not intel, if that matters.

Sorry, I am so clueless about this.

the link in my downloads is not broken.
all you needed to do was click the download link and it would have taken you here.
http://www.nvidia.com/content/license/lo...nglish.exe

the one you posted if for a geforce video card so its incorrect.

now your cpu does not matter at this stage its the chipset on the motherboard windows needs to know about.

I did click on it, and I swear that yesterday it gave me an error saying that the page no longer existed... how odd.
Anyway, thanks for this.

you may get problems with the sound trying to run windows xp home.
however this is now a older laptop, microsoft might have a driver out on windows update.
so please try the drivers i listed above,
when it comes to the sound please make sure you have xp service pack 2 installed only do not upgrade to sp3 till the sound is working.
once sp2 is installed please install the UAA then run windows update and see if it can find the correct sound driver for you.
