I can't seem to find the system drivers for "Compaq CQ40-517TU" I mean the chipset,audio,video and important drivers. I already look for drivers on HP sites but only HP bundled drivers are available. There is no drivers for system. Need help.
Need help on Laptop Drivers for Windows 7(15 posts)
These are the only available drivers when I choose windows 7 32 bit as my OS:
Show all | Hide all
Driver - Keyboard, Mouse and Input Devices (1)
Software - Multimedia (1)
Software - Solutions (4)
Utility - Tools (1)
There are drivers there for Vista
I'd take a look at them and you should be able to go to the Manufactures website directly and get drivers for Windows 7
Audio "IDT High-Definition Audio CODEC "
Graphics "Mobile Intel 45 Express Chipset Family Graphics Driver" or "NVIDIA GeForce Graphics Driver"
Yeah agree, been searching all day long. Found several drivers for win7 but the LAN driver doesn't work at all. I also tested installing WinXP still some drivers doesn't function properly like the LAN and Sound although sound is good in Win7 but LAN is not functioning on 7. All I can see that HP hosted drivers are only for Vista for complete drivers. So this is very lame and I am forced to use Vista again as OS and I really don't like Vista. But yeah I don't have a choice
Yeah, I already tried it. By default it doesn't allow it because it says 'This driver is for Vista only' I tried to tweak it, by using the properties and compatibility and run on Vista and as administrator. I then accept the driver and installed it successfully. But the problem still persist. The 'yello w/ exclamation' mark on the network icon is still there and when I scan it. It says 'Does not have valid IP add'. Maybe tomorrow I will post the screenshot.
