Can you help me about the Audio sound of my OS XP.. The you posted is not working with my OS.. thank you. I need it today if ever.

For your kinf information the Presario CQ40-108TU is a Intel Dual Core Model.
So why u suggest download and installing nVidia Chipset and Drivers.

R u mad... I think u have not full information about this product.
go to www.compaq.com and check it.

Hello,

This laptop is definitely fitted with an Intel Dual Core Processor. But chipset and graphics are manufactured by NVIDIA company. This does not have anything to do with the processor type.

how to install windows xp in compaq cq40-108tu laptop

This error is caused due the incompatable XP Write procedure...This is a common in Compaq laptops. Improper software drivers or errors in drivers can cause this. This problem can be rectified by booting the laptop after disabling all the Bios functions(this works out only in rare cases)

The best thing to do is remove your laptop CMOS (if u kno it how to do for sure)....put it back and reboot...
this will solve the problem

NEXT BEST EASY THING IS...vista can override all these stop errors ..just pop in and install
...if u r not comfortable with vista (first install Vista and then format it using any of the ways
(using recovery console OR a Boot diskette or BOOTABLE XP )...Though this is a long process this idea comes in handy..

pls.............help me help...............

how to use webcam with this model? i cant find it even i control panel. thanks.

Mam,
Their will probably be a software called "Youcam" in your laptop. Using the software you could take pictures or record video using your webcam. You can also use webcam while using softwares like say, Yahoo messenger or skype.
