I recently bought a Compaq Presario C747TU and it came preinstalled with
Windows Vista. Like many others i decided to downgrade my system back to
XP Pro SP2. Now, I have downloaded all the necessary drivers and followed
all the necessary steps. Everything is working well even my sound and I
can even access the internet through LAN.

However, my wireless broadband does not seem to exist. The wireless button
is constantly orange in colour and even when i press, it still stays
orange. I have just set up a wireless network at home and I really need
your help on this. Thank you.

More details of my laptop as follows:

s/n CND8053VVY
p/n KK814PA#UUF

Appreciate the help and advice....

I open the machine and found that model of wireless device on it... i have no idea is it Broadcom or Intel... Any solutions on this matter? I had gotten all but the wireless driver... Thank You...

Generally all wireless adapters are cards inserted in the corresponding slots. If you had opened the laptop, it is easy to identify the make of your wireless adapter. There generally are installed on to the bottom side of the machine.

I have purchased the C374TU 3 days back i am facing real problem with sound and wireless all else is ok. Why Compaq is really into making customer a real fool. i am really fed-up i have installed each and every driver suggested by HP online chat as well as Zyxware forum and i have now atleast 5 different driver for sound i have driver each driver by formatting my notebook 5 times for each driver one time format and followed the step wise procedure given by online chat people on mail.

i'm wondering if you can help me figure out why i can still hear the audio from the speakers even though an earphone/headset is plugged in...
can someone help me disable the audio from the speaker when an earphone/headset is being used?
another thing, i'm not sure if there's a driver for the mic? because microphone is not working only speaker is working. and wireless always in yellow color after installing any driver
Please help me out i am really fed-up of Hp Compaq notebook now really its really screwing up my life

There are no separate drivers for microphone. The same audio driver controls all kinds of audio activities in the laptop. The latest laptops are designed to work perfectly with Windows Vista. Also the latest hardware are of new version and they require updated/latest drivers. But, the drivers for XP that were given by the company are not updated, because they are not supporting XP any more. So if you ask them for drivers, they will ask you to install alternate drivers and they will provide you another bunch of drivers to try on.
Another option is to install Windows Vista, for which you might have to pay for a license.
The best option which we would like to suggest is to install Linux. All latest flavors of Linux are all the more simple and easy to use and configure. Some good flavors are Ubuntu, OpenSuse, Mandriva Linux, Fedora and so on. These are available free of cost to download from internet. Many people are providing them on CD or DVD media. We are also doing the same. If you are residing in India, you can obtain them from us using our Request CD/DVD Module. All of these should work perfectly on your laptop. You can try out and see. We as a company, are promoting Linux, and especially Ubuntu, as this is one flavor which is easy to configure and use, and the support from global community is excellent.

plz assist on this i need audio drivers for wipro laptop WIVNB7710

Allright, can you guys please help me with out with this problem? I have a Compaq Presario notebook, model no. C754TU. When I bought it, I had issues with the sound since I downgraded to Win XP and I learnt that Compaq made this series specifically for Windows Vista. However I resolved the issues by installing the sound drivers which I searched from the web. I used ordinary speakers with my notebook one day when the power went off and when I tried listening from the notebook speakers no sound came through though sound comes out when I use the headphone. I reinstalled everything and twice but still it isnt working. Sound still comes only from the headphone. So can please anyone help out. I looked everywhere for the solution but still havent found one.Could it be something to do with compability issues or hardware problems?

The drivers I installed are first MSS UAA version and then Conexant High Defintion Audio version 3.47.

Thanking all in advance.

• Not that I have an answer for you.. just chiming in I have the same problem. The front jacks test fine (Headphone Properties Advanced tab test) , so the earbuds I'm using works. But the sounds for applications still come out of the built in speakers, not the earbuds. I would think that plugging in something into the jack would automatically disable the speakers, and enable the jack.

i have some driver pls

Could you please let us know the exact problem you face.
Thank you
