Hi Joshua,

I downloaded all the drivers, the links given above, ethernet card and graphics, audio, modem, failed to install. please help me to give appropriate drivers.

I have Compaq Presario, V6000 Model-V6608 AU, but my computer managment property shows presario V6500 AMD Turion 64X2 Mobile. I am confused. help me out to find the right drivers for my laptop.

Dear Tanveer,

Presario V6608AU is an AMD based system and Presario V6500 series does not come with AMD processors. It has either Centrino or Core 2 Duo processor. The drivers given above are for Presario V6608AU for Windows XP and we have people who had used these links to get the respective drivers.
But regarding your laptop showing a different name in the computer management property, I suggest you should contact an HP-Compaq authorized service center and have this issue looked upon. What I think is that probably because it is showing wrong information, that you are unable to install the drivers for the same.

cheers,
Joju Joshua

I ALSO HAVE A SIMILIAR PROBLEM I HAVE BOUGHT THE AMD turion X2 BUT IN THE COMP MANAGEMENT IT SHOWS V6500 ? CAN YOU PLS SUGGEST WHAT SHOULD I DO ? HAS THE DEALER CHEATED ON ME?

NISHAD

I would not say that the dealer has cheated on you. But my suggestion is that you contact your local HCL service centre or HCL authorized service centre and clarify the problem.

I just recently bought this Presario V6608AU model, and have dual Booted it with Xp & Vista as seperate Partition ...... Thanks very much to u as I was searching for Xp Drivers for long time, and I found it over here.

Now, I'm planning to triple boot it, with Xp - Vista & Ubuntu ...... Where can I get Ubuntu Drivers for Presario V6608AU??

Pls provide me the link

Thanks

Amey

Dear Amay,

The latest version of Ubuntu (7.10) is all the more easy to install and setup. Generally, each and every devices will be configured automatically. The only thing you have to do is to configure the graphics drivers using the restricted drivers installation module.

regards
Joju Joshua

hi all ,
i would like to know whether in ubuntu 7.10 compiz and other visual effects
can be enabled / is working in this model , provided all the
required drivers are installed.

Ubuntu 7.10 should work perfectly fine on the laptop. V6608AU comes with NVIDIA® GeForce™ Go 7150M. That should work fine in Ubuntu 7.10 when the restricted drivers are enabled. Everything else should work fine straight out of the box.

i tried with the live cd of ubuntu 7.10 but it showing error and it stops in the console..
any suggestion reg this plz ...

Could you please be a little more specific in terms of the error message you got? Also can you get hold of an alternate install CD and try installing from it. From the alternate install CD, at the boot menu, press F6 and edit the boot options to take out the quiet and splash options and boot. This will allow you to see detailed error messages. If you are in India, you can request for an alternate install CD from http://www.zyxware.com/requestcd

Recently I bought a Presario V6608AU model laptop.

Please tell me about the performance and necessary precaution to utilize it efficiently.

This model laptop is pretty good model. It is equipped with AMD Athlon 64 bit processor TL-58 (1.9 GHz), 1 GB DDR2, 160 GB SATA Hard Disk, 8X SuperMulti Double Layer DVD Writer, 15.4" WideScreen. The graphics card is an NVIDIA® GeForce® Go 7150M GS which is a good one especially for gamers. The speakers are of Altec Lansing. It has a 5-in-1 Digital Media Reader, 56K Modem, Wireless LAN and Integrated Bluetooth 2.0. There are 3 USB ports for convenience and an S-Video output which will provide quality video out. The laptop is pre-installed with Windows Vista Home Basic Edition.
These make this laptop a good one. We do not have any comments about its performance. Based on its configuration as given above, it should be one good model for graphics based uses like graphics editors and 3D gamers.
There are few things which you have to remember when you use the laptop.
# Do not rough use it.
# Do not install all the software that are available. Install only those which are necessary for you.
# Always use the laptop bag when you carry.
# Be careful about viruses and other worms. Just a small precaution will protect your system from these. Visit our article about How to Protect Your Computer from Viruses for more details and also visit Virus Catagory to know more about viruses and its remedies, and
# Feel free to contact us incase you require any help.

I bought v6608au recently and am extremely satisfied with the performance of the machine. I just degraded it to Windows XP and the performance is awesome...

Some drivers are not working. Can you suggest me some thing, specially LAN drivers?

Did you try to extract the drivers on to the local disk and manually updating the drivers from the device manager by selecting the 'have disk' option and pointing to the extracted folder?

Anoop John
Team Zyxware

Yeah, the lan drivers are missing. I have all the drivers but m still unable to get the ETHERNET LAN Drivers... PLZZ HELP

Hi friend .

I have just brought 6608 au model and thinking of degrading it to xp.
But some one told me that it will create some software problem.

what do you think?can i set up everything properly with win xp?

Dear Yogesh,

We would not suggest you to downgrade to Windows XP. All the latest laptops are designed to work with Windows Vista only. If you downgrade, it is purely at your own risk. No body will give you a guarantee that the drivers will work perfectly with XP. Moreover, the warranty on software will get terminated if you downgrade.

Two weeks ago I bought this v6608 model of Compaq Presario. the performance is good. I just wanted to know what were the latest offers for this model till the date I bought this laptop.

HP frequently gives promotional offers with most of their laptops. There will normally be a catch in the promotions in that you might sometimes have to shell out some extra money to avail the promotions. Assuming that this query is by an Indian Customer, there are three current promotions in India for HP/Compaq Laptops. They are
1) Hauppage TV Tuner with HP Pavilion/Compaq Presario Notebook PCs
2) 0% finance scheme with HP Pavilion/Compaq Presario Notebooks
3) Internet Card with Compaq Presario/HP Pavilion Notebook PCs
You can see more details about these offers at

Dear Joju Joshua,

I have to select a notebook from Presario series, preferably Presario V6608AU. But i won't be comfortable to work with Windows Vista, instead i would like to use Windows XP. My friend bought Presario V6604AU few days back and tried to install Windows XP but laptop configuration didn't support Windows XP.
He tried to install with non-licensed version of Windows XP. Is it reason for configuration not supporting Windows XP or this doesn't matters? Also i want to know if particualr notebook is installed with Vista, then will it not give same good performance with XP also? Will there be performance difference in Presairo V6604AU and Presario V6608AU? As it will be end of year 2007 so should i wait to buy notebook in early 2008 for any price difference or it will be same as now.

Thankyou Sir.

Hi Team Zyxware,
I brought V6608AU Compac Presario laptop 4 months back and still i am working on Windows Vista. But now I want to install WIndows XP Pro in it. Can you please provide me the latest drives/link for the drivers for V6608AU laptop?
Please let me know in case you need any more details.

Dear Vishal,

Hi,
I just purchased this laptop and installed XP, everything works OK except the LAN driver.
I even had chat sessions with the HP/Compaq Technical support and after 3 such sessions I got all the drivers, but no luck with the LAN driver.
Can you help me find the correct LAN (Ethernet) Driver?
I would really be grateful.
-Manoj

Dear Manoj,
What is the error that you get when you install the driver for LAN?
Have you tried the above given links.?
Infact, drivers are almost common for all Presario V6000 series laptops. You will find drivers of other models of the same series in "Drivers" topic in our website.
Please try them and let us know.
Cheers
Joju Joshua
Team Zyxware

Hi,
Thank you for the response.
The error that I get at times is something of this sort.... 'No drivers were found for your hardware' , though I don't remember it exactly.
And at other times the divers simply gets installed without an error, but in the Device Manager the Ethernet Controller option is yellow !
Till now I've tried the following drivers sp32131, sp30264 and sp30156, even in safe mode but no luck.
Regards

Do you have Service Pack 2 installed in your copy of Windows XP? If no, please try that first. Normally, any kind of installation errors will get rectified when you install SP2.
Let me know if there are any further concerns, I would be happy to help you out.

Joju Joshua
Team Zyxware

Yes, I have installed XP SP2 itself, dont know why it doesnt accept any driver.

Please try the given link
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp32001-32500/sp32131.exe
Let me know whether it works or not

Joju Joshua
Team Zyxware

Hi,
I have tried sp32131 before and even today, but still no luck.
The Technical support of HP gave me this driver as well, but when I saw the html page of this softpaq, it doesn't even list the V6000 series in the PRODUCT MODEL(S) category.
Here is the page ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp32001-32500/sp32131.html
I very frustrated now :(
Thanks a lot for your replies

Did you try installing the driver manually by navigating the the folder where the driver files were unpacked, by clicking the "Have disk" option? If not, try that first.
Also please try the given links:
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp32001-32500/sp32144.exe
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp33501-34000/sp33645.exe
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp33501-34000/sp33574.exe

Still if this does not work, I believe you should contact HP service center nearby.
We are really sorry to hear about the inconveniences you are facing.

cheers
Joju Joshua
Team Zyxware

Hi Joshua,
Thanks a lot
Yes, I have tried the Have Disk option
I will indeed have to take it to the service center if these drivers dont work.
Regards

Dear Manoj,
Did the links that I gave you last, work?

Joju Joshua
Team Zyxware

Hi,
No Joshua, even these drivers did not work.
I think there has to be a problem with the hardware itself.
I will be taking it to the service center soon.
Thanks,
Manoj

Dear Manoj,
Does you laptop come under warranty? In that case, you can get it repaired free of charge. For me it seems like some driver problem. But, yeah, it would be good to contact the service. Of you can even talk to an assistant from HP-Compaq using their Live Chat option in the website. Please follow the given link.
http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/contact/chat_1.html

Joju Joshua
Team Zyxware

Hi Joshua,
Yes, my laptop is under warranty.
Also I've already had the online chat with HP Tech Support regarding drivers...but every time they gave me new drivers to try out.
Now, let me talk to the Customer Care in India regarding this and see if they can help.
Thanks a lot for your time.
Manoj

Hi Joju, Thanks for that prompt reply.
Ya i downloaded all the drivers but these drivers fails to install sound+graphics+network driver on my V6608AU lappy.

Do i need to installed anything else ....??? m having Win'XP Pro + SP2.

Thanks, Vishal

Dear Vishal,
One option that you have in hand is to try alternate drivers. As this laptop is designed for Windows Vista, we cannot give you any guarantee that the given drives will work well with XP. Even HP-Compaq will not give you any guarantee as such.
Second option which I would like to put forth is to install Linux, and this would be the best option. All flavors of Linux available now are easy to install and configure. We would like to suggest Ubuntu, OpenSuse, Fedora or Mandriva Linux. By default, almost all the functions and hardware works very well with Linux. In some, you might have to configure them. But the Linux community is very strong and it will not be a big problem to get help from anyone and even online. We would suggest you to try Ubuntu 7.10, which is easy and whose community is very strong online.
The last option would be to install Vista, for which all drivers are given in company's website itself. You can get the links from there.
Joju Joshua
Team Zyxware

Zyxware dudes , I have also bought the same machine v6608 AU

But the first option it self is not working, I am not able to install the chipset drivers
Please suggest the next step

Regards
Trambak Sinha

Please check out Instructions for installing Compaq Presario C722TU Laptop Drivers for Windows XP and follow the process as outlined in the step for installing High Definition Audio Driver in that laptop. The only difference would be the name of the folder. Instead of C:\swsetup\sp36090 you will have to look inside C:\swsetup\sp33411.

my ethernet lan driver is not working,though i have already installed it in my laptop.i want the lan driver in the web page above!!!!!!!!!!

Hi,

I read the whole article. I too have the problem with drivers. from different sites i downloaded the drivers but yet 4 drivers are not working.But my main question is, Windows-XP or even Vista, these are 32-Bit OS, where as the model supports 64. why are the drivers for 64-bit components not available. I wanted to connect my Cellphone with my notebook. for 15 days I tired, cursing the vendor for giving me defected cable only to learn latter that Vista(which was pre- installed) does not supports Nokia PC suit.

I frustration i formatted my notebook. and now nothing i working. Even if all the drivers work, it wont function as it was working in Vista. What are the other softwares/enhancements that Vista provided which XP doesnt?

All the latest models from HP-Compaq are tested and verified for Windows Vista. They provide all the driver for the same too. However, they give drivers for XP too, but with no guarantee that those would work properly with XP as they say that these drivers are not tested for Windows XP.
Vista also has a few issues with a couple of applications and compatibility. Are not the above driver links working for you? What are the errors that you get?
Another better alternative we would suggest is installing Ubuntu, a very user friendly version of Linux which you would not be having a problem with laptop's functioning. It is always better in performance and working than even Vista.
Please let us know.

I have V6608AU laptop which I had purchased recently. I want to connect my bluetooth enabled mobile to this laptop. Does this laptop have inbuilt bluetooth. It is saying insert bluetooth adapter. And i am not getting connected from mobile to laptop. Can u please tell me solution how to connect using bluetooth. Is there any software needed to be installed before connecting?please reply to my mail yashu21985[at]gmail.com

Sir,
I am going to buy the V6608AU model.
My question is that after first time instlattion
if I want to format with WINDOWS-XP,will
there any types problem occur?

Hello,
This model of laptop comes pre-installed with Windows Vista Home Basic Edition. Neither Zyxware Technologies not HP does not give you any guarantee that all associated drivers will properly in Windows XP, as they are not tested properly. This model is designed for Windows Vista and even HP has provided all the required drivers in their website itself.
So, I cannot say anything regarding you installing Windows XP. I cannot say for sure that all the drivers would work properly.
Also one important thing, if you remove Vista and put XP, you will lose all kinds of software warranty from HP. They will not take care of any software related issues for you as you had removed their software settings, but hardware warranty remains.
Also we, as a company, would urge you to go check out for legal and licensed version of Windows XP before you install it in the system

Hi,
My Wireless internet light stays orange and doesnt turn blue.
i called Hp and they want me to ship it in for $400.
I was wondering if there was any other way to fix the problem.

I do not know what it is that HP wanted to ship to you. But your problem seems looks like you have not installed the wireless drivers properly. Do you get any kind of error message?
Click Start > Run > Type "devmgmt.msc" and press ok. In the new window, you might find a '+' sign before 'Network Adapters'. Click the sign. What all entries do you find below it?

Dear all,
I want to buy abovesaid modelled laptop for working mainly with CATIA V5.
Whether it suits for it??
Or I should format it to Win XP??

Or

Suggest any other Laptops around Rs.35000/- in any brand to working with the same software.

Dear Mr. Narayanaswamy

CATIA is a design software, I believe. Presario V6608AU is a good laptop and it comes pre-installed with Windows Vista. You can check the given link - www-306.ibm.com/software/applications/plm/catiav4/sysreq/sysreq.html (copy and paste it to a new browser window) for details on System requirements for CATIA application. As per this source, this laptop can easily support the said software.
We would not suggest downgrading to Windows XP as you might face some hardware drivers issues. There is no guarantee from the part of the manufacturer that the given drivers will work with Windows XP.

Kindly check our website www.zyxware.com for laptops and prices

Does V6608Au with Windows Vista supports Dual Boot with Windows 2000 Server/Professional ?

How can I install Sql 2000 Server or Sql 2005 on V6608AU as I have read that Windows Vista does not support Sql server 2000 ar Sql server 2005. What can I do for that?

regards,
Rajesh

Yes you can dual boot Windows Vista and Windows 2000. All you have to do is to install the systems on separate partitions. If SQL Server 2000 and 2005 are not support on Vista the only thing you can hope to do is to install them on an OS that supports it or change the OS. I think that Microsoft SQL Server 2005 SP2 runs on Vista. Explore that option also

Sir,

I had purchased a V6604AU series compaq preario laptop.It comes with preloaded vista OS and I want to work on Catia V5 which is adesign software.But Vista is not supporting that software.Only XP will support the Catia V5.But I dont find the drivers which suits Windows xp.

Hi,
I purchased compaq presario V3225Au in August last year. It came preloaded with windows vista and has the amd processor. Needless to say it was very slow in even starting up. So i acted a bit oversmart and replaced the vista edition with a licensed copy of xp. Its been lying useless since then. The audio doesnt work, nor does the dvd writer or the wireless. Drivers on the hp website are for vista and not xp. Since the software screwup was from myside, i reckon HP wont help me get it replaced with the vista OS once again( correct me if im wrong here) The recovery discs are useless if you have not created the vista recovery discs from those ones, and i havent.
So what are my best options? Dont i own the vista os loaded on my laptop already and shouldnt i have a copy of my vista on a disc for my use whenever i want? seems unfair.
Let me know,
Thanks

Dear Manish,

All the latest models of laptops are designed to work with Windows Vista. No one will guarantee you that drivers will work perfectly with Windows XP as they are not properly tested. Moreover, there can be driver and hardware version incompatibility because the latest ones contain hardware with updated drivers. And I wonder whether you had made any back up of your Windows Vista Recovery Partition. Mostly all laptops with Vista will contain a recovery partition using which one can recover back to Vista incase some thing happens. I do not know whether you had deleted that too. Warranty of software ceases once you remove Vista from it.
And answer to you last question - This version of Vista that came pre-installed with your laptop is definitely owned by you. If you notice the bottom side, you will find the serial key of the copy of Vista that was installed in your machine. The manufacturers will not provide you any copy of OS, but what they do is they leave a recovery partition in the machine.
Now what you can do is get any Vista (Home/Premium - which ever was there) and try installing it using the serial key given on the bottom side. And once installed, do not forget to get registered online with Microsoft. I am not aware whether you can use one serial key with another installation medium. This is one step that you will have to try out and see.
Another better option that we would like to suggest is to install GNU/Linux. All latest distributions of Linux ,namely Ubuntu, Fedora, OpenSuse etc, are easy to configure and use. You can get these for free from internet or from vendors who will distribute it to you at a very nominal cost and we are one among those vendors.

Dear Jigar,

Make sure that you have a drive free to install XP. (You already have d:) First install & configure Windows Vista. Now reboot the system using an XP bootable CD. Follow on-screen instructions to install XP.
And when you restart, your system will boot only XP. Here we need to fix the boot menu. For this, you would require Vista DVD. Follow the steps given below:
* Restart the machine and boot from Vista DVD and click Next at the first screen.
* Do not click install when you are prompted, but click Repair your computer from the bottom of the screen.
* Select Microsoft Windows Vista at the Systems Recovery Options dialogue and click next.
* Select Command Prompt option at the bottom and click next.
* At the Command Prompt, type the following one by one
bootrec.exe /fixMBR
bootrec.exe /fixBoot
* Now close the Command Prompt and restart the system. Here it will boot into Vista.
* Once the system boots into Vista, at Start search at the bottom of Start Menu in Vista, type cmd.exe and press Ctrl+Shift+Enter to open Command Prompt with administrative privilege. When User Access Control pops, click continue.
* Now enter the following commands at the Prompt one by one. When you press enter each time, you will get messages like "The operation completed successfully" or "The specified entry already exists". If you do not receive these messages, make sure you type the commands properly. Make sure that you have Vista installed in C drive. If not, change the letter "C" in the first command to the corresponding drive letter.
bcdedit -set {ntldr} device partition=C:
bcdedit -set {ntldr} path \ntldr
bcdedit -displayorder {ntldr} -addlast
bcdedit -set {ntldr} description "Microsoft Windows XP"
* Restart your system and you should be able to see a window which will let you select between Vista and XP, where you can select the one you want.

Let us know what happens

Please please provide me the solution, I installed the above mentioned files into Compaq 6608 that is insatlled with Windows xp is there any chance to get the drivers.

Thanx & Best Regards,
Rakesh Sarma.Yeluri.

Dear Rakesh,
Kindly elaborate your query. Are not all these drivers working in your laptop?

Team Zyxware

Hey Master.........
This seems to be great help for me.
I successfully downloaded drivers available here.
But i could not download HP Quick Launch Buttons Driver,the page is not opening.So i cant proceed.Please suggest how i can get the same?
Well i have made recovery disks for V6608AU of Vista.
I will format Laptop today and install XP sp2...licensed copy.
Seems this will work well.......
suppose,If it will not work what should i do for XP drivers?
Thanks in Advance.......
Waiting for valuable response and reply.

Tushar

Dear Tushar,
The links were provided by the manufacturer. These links point you to the location of drivers. The drivers are stored in various servers of HP-Compaq. In case the drivers are not present in those locations, you might not get to download them. You can try alternate drivers of other models.
Please keep in mind that these laptops are designed to work with Windows Vista only. There is no guarantee that these drivers will work perfectly with XP. If you are installing XP, it is purely at your own risk because once you install XP, warranty on software will cease.

sir ,
i have read your complet article, and tried to installed the xp drivers you have provided. But Its showing some error so please you tell me what should i do. i have already reistalled xp on my notepad

hey ,dude
are you sure that these drivers are goin to work correctly on v 6608 au machine.plz rply
b cause hp official site doesnt shows any windows xp drivers for v 6608 au.

We have got the instructions about these drivers from HP Support. They should work theoretically but neither HP nor Zyxware guarantees that these would work :). Check out Ubuntu. You would not have to install any drivers and everything should work out of the box.

Hello friend,

I downgraded my client's Compaq Presario V6000 from Vista to
XP2 and upgraded to SP3. Sound gone. They say I can find the
XP version and some say not. I am not a geek in this. If you
can help that will be great help. Unfortunately I did not burn
a recovery copy since I was ignorant about this. Please be
kind enough...

hi Joju and anoop,

i've read all the above posts and i feel that this is the place where i will get help for sure.

my compaq presario v6608au shuts down abruptly and then when i try to switch it on again, the power lights glow for a few seconds then it shuts down again. i hav to wait for another 2 or 3 hours before i can resume my work. the city where i live has no good people at the hp compaq show room. may be because i cannot show them the problem i encounter as it is abrupt and does not occur on fixed actions or at fixed time.

i checked for the viruses with the latest anti virus...but no use. I even tried reformatting. cud it be related to heating or something?....but sometimes it works absolutely fine even for 10-12 hours.....

awaiting a response....

thanks
Piyush

Dear Piyush,

Please try using your laptop with your battery removed. For this, you just have to remove the battery and then connect the adapter and try using the laptop again and check out if this problem occurs again. This is not an accurate solution, but I am trying to pin down the problem.
Let us know what happens.
One more thing, is it Vista or XP, that you have in your machine?

cheers
Joju Joshua
Team Zyxware

thanks for the respose...
The problem is not related to OS....it occurs in both vista as well as XP. I had already tried using it without battery....but the problem persists.
It usually happens when i use it for about 4-5 hours at a stretch. One more thing i forgot to mention is that when the laptop gets turned off...if i touch the HP quick play feather touch button... it switches on for some more time...but on start up the application 'hp quick play' also launches....so is it not completely turned off?? It doesn't go into sleep...because the power LED does'nt blink like it does when i put it to sleep...

is it some power options thing??

Also i've got a problem with the XP drivers.... i know that the drivers are not guaranteed to work. But my friend also has the same laptop. Is there any way to copy the same settings and drivers form his laptop. bluetooth , audio and ethernet dont work in XP...

The upper problem is more immediate one....

thanks....
Piyush

Dear Piyush,

Generally, computers and laptops are designed to work for hours at a stretch. Even, I have also used my laptop for days, without having even restarted once. HP Quick Play is just an option to play media files at one click. May be you can try uninstalling the HP Quick Play software.
How did you put your laptop to sleep? Is it using the Fn key and the sleep button on your keyboard, or is it via the Start menu? Did you check out the Power Options in your Control Panel? Please check what are the settings given there for power button and sleep button.
Regarding copying from your friends laptop, I think he might have a backup copy of the drivers. You can get those drivers from him and try installing in your laptop. But install only for those which are not working properly in your machine.

cheers

Dear Joju,

I did'nt reply immediatly because....the problem has vanished abruptly. Did you filck your wand from there??!!! I'm happy about that ...but also uneasy because the cause could not be known....

It now also works glitchfree for days at stretch.... what could have been this problem???.... could it be some dust problem or some water drop by any chance??

Thanks...

Hey all.

I've been searching the internet for a problem i've experienced and stumbled upon this forum about it.
I have a Presario V6500, and have had a similar problem as many other in this topic. The drivers for having WinXP instead of Vista!
That solved however, my computer now started to behave odd. But the drivers have worked with no problem at all for 6 months.

So, to the problem.
3 days ago, the laptop just abruptly shutdown. I turn it on, and after 3 hours the same problem occurs.
I feel that the computer is very warm, nearly hot, at the bottom so i guessed that overheating could be a problem.
Because of this, i leave it until next day.
2 days ago, it occurs again after maybe 3 hours. Now i restart the computer, and after 5 minutes it happens again. I leave it alone.
Yesterday, i tried to start the laptop, but i did'nt even make it to Windows. The fan starts, lights turns on, and after 5 seconds .. All dead.
Try again 3 times, the same. next time, it won't start at all.
I try to remove the battery. It does not help. But after a few hours i can turn it on again, but it still dies after 5 seconds.
However, another strange thing is that if i leave the adapter plugged in, or battery inserted, the computer starts to attempt to start by it self!
And after 5 sec, gone ... Again, and again. Until i remove the battery and adapter plug.

If anyone have any knowledge about this, problem or solution, please enlighten me. :)
Thanks in advance, Hakim.

I have a similar power issue. This is what happens… Power it on, for a second the blue lights light up for a second and the cpu fan turns for a second (at the same time), then everything dies. The laptop does not POST or allows it to go into BIOS. I have done… Removed and replaced (put back) CMOS battery, hard drive, battery, changed power supplies, memory, keyboard, and looked for lose wires. I checked her hard drive on my machine (my HP dv6000t BIOS allows a HD check), memory, and all appear fine. Let me know, Thank you for your help. I do not believe this is an OS issue, but she is running Vista business. feel free to reply bck at bad0713@hotmail.com

even i had the same problem...but now it got allright automatically................
i am not happy with it because i cud'nt understand why it happened!!!

This is due to a virus. Please check your laptop with AVG antivirus.

Hello Friends,

The Compaq Presario V2000 laptop will not accept the drivers provided in the HP website. You need to check the exact product tag number which is found below the laptop. It will be like “V2374AP”. This is the actual part number or the model of your laptop driver which you need to search.

One of the numbers found below the laptop in V2000 is “V2374AP”.

So search “Compaq Presario V2374AP Notebook PC”

i can't see "Conexant high definetion audio driver" in device manager, instead i see "Audio device on high definition audio bus".
I have installed SP 32646 but i cant install audio driver.

kindly suggest me what can i do to install audio driver.Also how can install internet drivers.do i need to install all drivers (modem,lan,ethernet).Is there any sequence that i need to follow while i install drivers.

Dear Parin,

May be your laptop contain another type of hardware for audio. Kindly check any alternative driver from any other laptop which is under V6000 series and also please try installing them manually.
Still I cannot guarantee that these will work as the laptops are designed to work only with Windows Vista.

HEY FELLAS GOOD NEWS IS INSTALLED EVERY PIECE OF HARDWARE ON V6608AU WITH WINXP
I have the same notebook as many of u do!
compaq v6608au!
i'm satisfied the way it works with vista and with WINDOWS XP.
now i installed xp not because i wanted to but, out of curiosity to find out which one works better on this gr8 notebuk.
now i tell u installation of xp drivers was no easy a job than finding them anywhere particularly when hp drivers webpage and
its ftp are shit and useless.
So u'll have to juke out drivers from some hell over the web.
that i think is manageable. make sure u have multiple drivers for the same hardware so that if one fails u can always test another.
believe me u gotta experiment with things when u want xp to work on this beautiful and powerful notebuk.
next thing u have to do is after downloadin various drivers, from god knows where, extract them using either winrar or winzip.
then open device manager.
dont mess with chipset drivers or anything u are not sure of!
for v6608au sound install microsoft universal audio thing first and then by device manager check for hardware changes.
it will give u some options. go for the option that says u have a driver disc.
select the hardware u want to install in this case sound card. now browse to the location where u extracted the drivers using winrar or winzip.
check for conexant audio extracted driver and open the folder. this will show some arbit file with some weird format. select it anyways and press ok over any screen that pops up.
if u can follow this then perhaps u can install goddamn thing in this notebook and fuck hp for not giving driver cd.
hope this would be of sum help.
dont mail me on my email that i've provided as i seldom check it!

dont hate v6608au it's beautiful.... hate hp

V6608Au is really very nice, but not HP. Actually I have Win-Vista will shipping to me. Due to compatible issues, I migrated to Windows-XP. But Xp Compatible drivers are not available in www.hp.com.
"Don't Worry"--- "Don't Worry"--- "Don't Worry"--- "Don't Worry"---
You can get all XP drivers from below link.

But I experienced problems on installation of Audio Drivers, Vedio Drivers, Ethernet Drivers.......
Simply it displays ERROR MSG like "Device can't find".
