HP Compaq CQ61 VGA Drivers Not Found

Q: HP Compaq CQ61 VGA Drivers Not Found

Hi guys,

I've isntalled Windows XP Professional (32) bit on a HP Compaq CQ61-231TU Machine with the help of nLite.

I had been using Windows XP on same machine. But this time, I'm not able to find its VGA / Graphics Drivers for XP.

Could someone please help me on this ????


A: HP Compaq CQ61 VGA Drivers Not Found

Here is the support and software site for the Compaq Presario CQ61-231TU laptop.
You should add and save this site in your browser favorites/bookmarks list so you can readily refer to it when needed.

The drivers and downloads section has drivers for Windows Vista and Windows 7, but not for Windows XP.
Did you downgrade that laptop to Windows XP?

That laptop appears to have either an Intel or a NVIDIA graphics device, so we need to confirm which one it has.
Go into the Device Manager and then advise the names of the entries that have a yellow ? next to them.

I have a Presario CQ61. I believe it was released in 2009.  Although it's very old I was wondering if this laptop will have driver support for windows 10. There are none as of now but will there be drivers for this laptop in the future?  Thanks.

I have recently upgrade my OS from Vista to Windows 7 Ultimate by clean install method.
I think so far everything works except microphone which I solved by installing updates from windows update.
So my question is, Should I install some drivers or some updates from either compaq or hp sites or wherever also? Should I try to find drivers specefic for my computer or go with the drivers which came with windows 7?
My computer model is: Compaq Presario CQ61

Thank you very much!!!

Ok guys, this one has me hung up and I would appreciate some help. A user brought me their Compaq CQ61-420US laptop that they purchased from a pawn shop. At first the PC wouldn't even turn on. I ended up having to replace the power cord and a new battery and also had to replace the motherboard fan because it was not spinning and causing the PC to overheat. After I got the hardware part fixed I found that the PC had a lot of malware. I ran a scan and cleaned the PC up completely.

Now when I try to start the PC sometimes the PC will boot just fine and other times The PC just starts up but there is a black screen and the CAPS LOCK AND SCROLL LOCK lights flash. After I completely drain the battery and recharge it then it will fire back up normally. I've also tried different RAM but the issue still persists. I'm thinking this may be a motherboard issue but wanted to post on here and get some of your opinions.

Thanks for any input!

A:Issue with Compaq CQ61-420US

The Compaq Presario CQ61-420US (WA976UA#ABA) laptop originally came with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

Because that laptop was purchased at a pawn shop and contained the programs and debris and issues from its previous owner, it needs to be wiped out and given a fresh start.

The factory restore recovery disc kit for it can be purchased here.

Hi Can someone advise me if this notebook is suitable for the Windows 10 upgrade. I've been told that it doesn't have the correct drivers. I thought that new drivers would be installed with the upgrade? Thank you Jack

A:Compaq CQ61- 401SA ( Windows 10 )

Here's the specs: You have the Intel 4500M GMA graphics and it is a T4400 Pentium dual processor.  Windows 10 does not have a built-in driver for your video chip. However, the internet and youtube are full of workarounds. I have installed Windows 10 on several laptops with that hardware and it will work but in most cases I have eventually gone back to Windows 7 which works better on that era of hardware.  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

So recently the charger for my Compaq laptop has gone bust, and I need to know what charger I would need to buy. This has happened once before, and when I bought a new charger, the wattage wasn't correct for the computer, so that one broke too.

What I need to know, is the exact charger needed for this laptop, meaning the correct wattage for the computer. Links to websites where I can buy it would be greatly appreciated.

Recently my fan in my laptop was extremely loud, and the laptop was getting really hot. I proceeded to vacuuming my laptop and dust came out of it.

Somehow when vacuuming my fan, it broke.

Now it does not spin, and my laptop is silent.

Within 10 minutes of running the laptop it turns off; when it turns back on it says it shutdown to avoid over heating...

Any ideas, do i need a replacement, and should i take it to a computer place???

A:Broken fan on Compaq Presario CQ61

I suggest trying to blow out more dust. Maybe a dust bunny is preventing the fan from spinning.

If that doesn't work, the machine may need to be cleaned more thoroughly (disassembled). If that doesn't work, you'd need a replacement fan.

Take it to a shop, if you can't do it yourself, and you know a place that you can trust. (Preferably not Geek Squad at Best Buy. I've read few kind words about them.)

The ownership of the above machine has been transferred to me.I wish to revert the laptop to the factory settings.The recovery options are not accessible. Not by uising the recovery manager accessed through the Windows interface, via the F11 options or through the startup screen.Windows 7 home premium came presistalled.Is there a means of obtaining the installation discs?The hard drive was replaced by the previous owner. Thank you for any help. 

A:Compaq presario CQ61-415SA Recovery

HP no longer has any Windows 7 based recovery disks for consumer laptops. There is a 3rd party market for recovery disks. That is not precisely your model but is AMD so the motherboard is the same as yours and would work. If you are a little more adventurous and tight-fisted, we can walk you through a "clean" recovery using an OEM Windows 7 install disk and the drivers found on this site.  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

So my laptop's screen is black. I'm using my tv right now with it, it works fine hooked up to a TV. I've tried everything I know of. When the laptop first starts up, It flashes the red compaq screen, then goes black. Flashes the user login screen, then goes black 2 sec later. When I do the fn+f4, the screen flashes back on, everything looks cool, then 5 seconds later it goes black again. It's not just the light, it goes completely off. (Just on the laptop, external monitor works) I've tried restoring back to factory settings, recovery, and I'm not getting anywhere! I've even tried that black screen fix by Prevx. Oh and I also tried turning the laptop off, holding the power button, etc. It has windows 7. CQ61 I think is the model.
I wasn't really sure if this was the right place to post it, so sorry if I'm in the wrong section!

My name is Alison, I was trying to fix my laptop and ended up making things a lot worse!!

I ran DBAN and during the process i realized i have no way to reinstall Vista OS so i aborted the wipe after 10 or 15 mins into it.

Its a Compaq Presario CQ61. On the back of the L/T i have a sticker with a product key but when i purchased it i never got a CD for Vista. I dont have recovery discs either.

So like i said i stopped DBAN from completing the wipe however now when i turn the L/T on it says,


I tried doing System Recovery but the same message comes up... i also found a Vista Recovery online and burnt to cd-r but it stills says, "NO BOOTABLE DEVICE -- INSERT BOOT DISK AND PRESS ANY KEY"

Im not sure what to do to fix this issue... any help or advice welcome but please explain in details.

Is there a way to copy a different version of windows OS from a different PC and make that a 'boot disc' I dont really understand what a boot disc is...

Thanks in advance!


A:Wiped the hard drive now i have no OS (Compaq Presario CQ61)

Hi, Alison.

A boot disk is the hard drive which your PC boots from and starts Windows, but your hard drive has had the boot files and Windows (or some of it) wiped off it with DBAN. DBAN is used to securely wipe all data from a hard drive prior to selling it or otherwise disposing of it -- this prevents any data from getting into the wrong hands.

You will have to contact HP/Compaq and ask them if they can send you a set of Recovery CDs for your model.

Wiped the hard drive now i have no OS (Compaq Presario CQ61)


I ran DBAN

DBAN (Darik's Boot and Nuke) is a low level format utility. Once you start this, it begins to wipe the drive of your OS. Stopping it in the middle is too late. If you had just run System Recovery would have set your system back to Factory Defaults, but DBAN deleted that too. You cannot copy an installed OS and put it on a different computer. An OS has to be installed from a boot disc (a disc that boots the computer if the OS can't)
What is the Vista recovery disc that you have? Boot into Setup (Bios) and change the Boot order to be CD/DVD rom drive First Boot Device, Save and Exit. Restart the computer with the disc in and you should see the message Press Any Key to Boot From CD/DVD.If it is a Vista install DVD then you can reinstall your OS. If not a Windows disc, you can try contacting your computer manufacturer and see if you can get a Recovery DVD for your computer manufacturer Or get a Vista DVD from Ebay or Craigslist.

Hello All,

I have recently purchased a Presario CQ61-410 US ( and am now trying to install Xp Pro on it. I am having major difficulties.

After a lot of googling, I found these guides (, I tried both solutions to no avail; I would still get a blue screen after during the initial install. Then I realized I have the AMD chipset, and thanks to this thread ( was able to find the Raid drivers, slipstream them with Nlite and begin. The SATA hard drive was readable, and the installation commenced.

Here, though, is the rub. I am able to get through the basic install screen (F8 I agree, partitions, etc) and through the first "GUI" install screen (Agree to EULA, "Your Screen May Flicker for a few Seconds" etc). However, after that install and when the computer restarts and goes to load XP, I get the XP splashscreen for maybe 1-2 seconds, then the system reboots. I have no idea why. I know the install I am using is solid (it is running tried and true on another machine), and I have tried making a second boot disk, but every time I encounter the same problem: splash screen for a second, then restart.

A:Compaq Presario CQ61 and XP Pro Installation - A Living Hell

So you are trying to downgrade a machine that shipped with Windows 7 to Windows XP ? If so, that would have been a better title to the thread, as downgrades are their own special set of problems.

It also would have been a good idea to note that this is a laptop.

Given that, I am having difficulty understanding why you would need "RAID drivers" for a laptop. Does this laptop have two hard drives ?

The compaq support site does not list any XP-specfic drivers for the hard drive or hard drive controller.

Have you seen this area ?

Also I'm a bit skeptical of your Driver Genius Pro software, and am wondering if that has been involved in the situation yet, and if it's a possible cause for problems.

Is this HD parititioned, with the Ubuntu O/S on one partition ? If so, it would be better to get XP installed on a single-partition drive, then make another partition for Ubuntu.

nLite is sometimes buggy, and while it is solving one problem, it could be causing another.

A bad/buggy optical drive can also corrupt system files which can cause an install to go bad.

HD's can come from the factory with errors & bad sectors. I would run HDD Regenerator (from Hiren's) to make certain the HD is good.

Hi all, I'm new here, registered just to get help with my problem. I have a Compaq Presario CQ61-420US Laptop, it will be a year old at the end of April 2011. It has Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OS. Never had a problem with it till now. I am planning on doing a memory upgrade (currently has 3.0 GB DDR2 PC6400 in 2 slots (1gb + 2gb), ordered a 2.0 GB chip to bring it up to 4.0 GB total memory)

Anyway I wanted to make sure I could do the swap myself so I unplugged the power cord, took out the battery, unscrewed the panel on the bottom of the laptop case, found the memory chips, took out both chips very carefully, undoing the tabs holding the chips in, took them out, inspected them, put them back in the way I took them out, making sure the tabs on the chips were lined up, maing sure the contacts were making contact. Put everything back together, ordered the new 2GB memory chip.

Today I went to power up the laptop, battery in and power cord plugged in and everything lit up like normal except the screen never came on, the power button stayed lit, the network status light stayed on, the power indicator was lit, two white lights were flashing at the same time every 5 seconds though, which is abnormal, one at the top right of the keyboard which I believe is the Num-lock light and one on the far left of the keyboard which I believe is the Caps-Lock light.

I have a Compaq Presario 5000 series running Windows 98. All was well until I tried to boot the computer yesterday and got the following error message:

"Operating system not found on any devices. Press any key to try again."

Pressing Del or any other key when it's trying to boot will only get me into the Compaq setup menu, not the BIOS setup. Everything looks fine in there, though.

I opened the tower up and the cables, fan, etc. seem to be fine.

My floppy and CD drives seem to be working, but when I try to use the Win 98 boot disk I get this message:

"Disk I/O error. Replace the disk and press any key."

I have some *really* important files that have not been backed up, so I *have* to get access to the HD ... once I've backed up these files, then I don't care what happens - I'll reformat if I have to. I have two hard drives on this system (and of course all my important stuff is on c drive) so I could swap them and try it, but I can't figure out how to get into Setup to re-designate them.

Also the Sounds, Speech, and Audio menu says No Audio Device. However, it 'does' work for: boot-up music, wrong-click warning, dxdiag sound check, and log-off music.

I have tried System Restore. Also tried reloading the drivers, but not familiar with how to check what I am missing, and these are the only ones I found.

Compaq Drivers
BIOS - MS-6577 Motherboard BIOS Update
Firmware - TSST TS-H292C CD-RW Drive Firmware Update
Software - HP Update Security Vulnerability Update
Utility Tools - Hp update

After I re-installed the BIOS driver, the sound worked for a few minutes, but then stopped again.

I tried getting help from the Dell support forums since I was using dell speakers, but everyone said it was a problem with the PC and they could not help.

If I need to add any other information just let me know.

A:Solved: No Audio Device Found - Compaq PC

Make sure none of the Volume controls are not muted in the volume control panel..such as WAV, CD MUSIC ETC... If everything is good there I would go into your system settings then device drivers and make sure there are no conflicts... also make sure you deleted old drivers before you reinstall new ones. hope that helps a bit

A:Compaq CQ58 - boot device not found

Hi, It doesn't matter if the upgrade was from 8 - as long as Windows 10 activated successfully, you can use the 'clean installation' method. It's possible that if the machine had just been 'refreshed', the hard shutdown interrupted system files being updated and this can lead to this sort of issue. Generally, a clean installation of Windows 10 has less problems/performance issues than the upgrading from a previous version of Windows. Regards, DP-K

By now I have the network card and the wireless working, but I have no sound, and i don't know to which extent the graphic card is being used to render what I see, I wouldn't like to put too much stress in the processor unnecessarily.

Any tips on finding the drivers, installing them or knowing the drivers I may need (I don't know the current situation about the graphics) are welcome. Any URL or pointer about where should I search for drivers, tutorials, information, help or anything is also welcome. I am completely clueless on this one.

Hi everyone,
I ran across a 56k modem (pci) I'm looking for the drivers to it.
I got it used, I know it came from a compaq, but I'm not sure which one.
Theres a sticker on the modem that says: compaq computer corp. s8104. and theres a bar code on the sticker(probably compaqs part #)
Theres also a sticker that says CIS technology inc. series M1-5614PM3 HIGH Speed fax modem(I'm guessing this is the actual model#)

Compaq's site sucks, and I can't find anything on CIS tech. If anyone can find me the drivers for this modem, it would be greatly appreciated.

I just got a new mobo, and it doesnt have any ISA slots, so my old USR modem has to go. This is the only PCI 56k modem I have.

I recently re-installed the operating system. I downloaded and installed all the latest drivers from Compaq's website. My two problems are:

Audio. The volume up/down buttons function, but the mute button and light do not function. Additionally, the volume at max level isn't very loud. I have installed audioSP23455, Conextant Audio Driver for Windows XP, from Compaq's site. It is the only driver listed when I search for Presario 2596US notebook. The driver does not list the 2596 as an applicable model...

Where can I get a different audio driver?

Wireless. The wireless connect/disconnect button and light do not function. I have installed broadcomwlanSP27942, Broadcom WLAN Network Adapers Driver for Windows XP, from Compaq's site. I am able to detect and connect to my wireless router, but I would like the disconnect button to function.

I have windows 7 on compaq presario v2000 laptop. I want to use audacity to record some music from the internet, but when I click on it, it says 'No recording device found'. This is strange, cause I thought the sound card would be what audacity uses to record from, and I dont know what else a recording device would be. Besides on another laptop, a dell inspiron 2200 which has windows xp, everything works fine.

So why is not working on the compaq presrio v2000? I can listen to audio just fine, but I cannot record it.


A:compaq presario v2000 No recording device found

It's...not that simple.

What format is this music that you want to record...being streamed in? What website is the source?

I don't use Audacity, but I've played with it a couple of times...but I was never interested in recording, only the mixing/editing of music files I have on hand. Try reviewing the instructions for using it to record.

As for music via the Internet...I download .flv files from YouTube. Then I must either use a player for that format to enjoy the downloaded video...or I can convert the .flv file to a different format. I convert them to .mp3 files, I'm not interested in the visuals.

What I'm getting cannot record music that you hear on your system...just because you can hear it when on the Internet.

As for recording from the soundcard...yes, that can happen. But only if you provide an input via either the microphone or the external input connection. For example...I can use one of CD players and connect to an amplifier...and pass that signal into my computer via the soundcard...and record the music from the CD.

If we can figure out what you are trying to do, you can probably get instructions on how to do it.

So, recently, my mom gave me her old Compaq Presario C500 laptop. Before recently, it had Windows XP SP3 on it, with full driver installations, etc.

A little back story: My dad bought this computer for my mom. It had Vista on it. My dad Nuked Vista using DBAN ( and installed XP. He was up till like midnight getting drivers from tech support.

I got it, nuked it with DBAN by request of my mom, and reinstalled XP. The XP drivers available for the laptop were not base drivers, they were updates, AND only for certain things.

So basically, I need to know, should I download Vista drivers for XP, or will it fail?

also, this computer is totally out of warranty, so I can't call tech support.

I am helping a friend with a Compaq Presario C500 (C542EA) laptop, essentially it came with Windows Vista and we want to run XP on it.

I am having some serious issues locating XP drivers for

Wireless NIC

Does anyone know what hardware this machine runs for these devices? Having hunted around the internet I am hitting brick walls attempting to find XP drivers for this machine. I am hoping this is not a situation where Vista needs to be reloaded on to the machine in order to get it up and running!

It seems that the HP website does have audio and modem drivers (but not wireless NIC) however when i have run the drivers it states that its not for the hardware installed!

Any help would be appreciated!

Can you guys please help me to find the complete set of drivers for my notebook. Its very urgent and I will be highly obliged.

A900 is the series number for your Compaq Presario laptop. Select the correct model number from this list and then advise what it is.


If you set up Vista with the Windows classic or standard mode instead of the aero mode, it'll look a lot more like XP and you'll probably be more comfortable using it. That's how I set up my Compaq Presario SR5450F desktop when I bought it last year with Vista. A couple of the devices didn't have XP drivers available, and the hard drive is SATA instead of EIDE, so I couldn't downgrade to XP if I wanted to.

Hoping I don't need a new hard drive.

Received Compaq computer CQ61, With Win 7, 64 bit. If I try to run the Hard Drive test, I get "Hard Drive Not exist". (The computer's words, not mine) Really don't want to buy new hard drive, of course. This drive is only 2, but original equipment and no longer under warranty.

I'm told to run certain programs to check the drive. However, they have to be downloaded to the computer in question, and I can't connect via that computer. I created a bootable Flash drive, but it doesn't let me get to the hard disk.

The Disk is a SATA (by Seagate) 320 GB, Momentus 7200.4.

I can't partition when it can't see the drive, I can't run programs when I need the Hard drive to store them. Looking for some way to save the drive for a while while I save enough for a new drive!

Anyone with suggestions?

Be sure to do this with the PC off and the power cord unplugged.

Second: If all connections are good the Start the PC and immediately go into the BIOS setiings. On the first tab navigate to see if the hard drive shows up in the drives listings. If not, do other drives (CD-DVD) show?

Third: When you start the PC, can you hear the drive "spin up". Can you hear it running?

You go here -> Compaq Presario 1700 Notebook PC series*-* Download drivers and software - specify product name - HP Business Support Center and then click on the 1700T version.

Then select XP Pro 32 or 64 bit.

The FIRST driver to install is the one they call 'Compaq System Board Software' - that's the chipset drivers (why they have to call it something other than chipset only those weirdos can tell).

I've been searching the Internet all day for drivers for this Notebook and have found most of them, but need two more. I can't get online.

It's a Windows XP Professional OS but I cannot get online without an Ethernet Controller driver, which I still haven't been able to find. I also need a Multimedia Audio Controller.

It's an old notebook but has hardly been used. The specs are as follows:

Intel[R] Pentium[R] M
processor 1.73Ghz
795 MHz,0.99 GB of RAM
Physical Address Extension

I still have the original Windows XP Professional disk

Will someone please help me find these two drivers? I've searched every HP Compaq driver site I could find to not avail.

Thanks so much,

not sure if this is the correct place to post my apologies if it is not. Here is my problem, I got a compaq presario 6000 desktop from a friend to fix, he had someone install windows xp on it, and the onboard lan internet is not working it needs the correct drivers. My problem is he knows nothing of the computer and has none of the original software. So I went to the hp/compaq page to download the drivers, problem is the pc only says it is a presario 6000. I have looked everywhere on the case and motherboard for the t code or sn# as the web page suggests. I have checked the system info and it only says it is a compaq presario, same in bios. Hopefully someone can help. Some other info hopefully of value it does say it is a zztop/pine amer cto on top, the motherboard says it is an n1996 and has a 686y4 sticker on it. any help in identifying this compaq so I can put the correct drivers is greatly appreciated

I have just upgraded my laptop to Windows7 64bit. All windows updates have been installed.
I have been able to find drivers for everything, most were installed automatically (HP do not have any win7 drivers for this model)

The only prob is that ALL the usb2 ports are only working as usb1, every time I plug in a usb2 device I get the message that they could perform better if they were plugged into a usb2 port.

The ports are usb2 and were recognised correctly under windows xp 32 bit.

I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling via device manager.

Device manager shows under usb
ATI I/O communications processor usb 1.1 ohci controller
ATI I/O communications processor usb 1.1 ohci controller
ATI I/O communications processor usb 2.0 ehci controller
usb root hub
usb root hub
usb root hub

Any one know how I can get these ports to be recognised correctly???

Thanks for any help


A:Solved: Compaq nx6325 Laptop Drivers

It's true that HP (Compaq) doesn't have any Windows 7 drivers for the NX6325, I just verified that to make sure.

Before upgrading to Windows 7, did you run the Microsoft Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor and did you read the information regarding Windows 7 upgrades on HP website?

You said you used Windows XP 32-bit before and have now upgraded to Windows 7 64-bit. Why upgrade to a 64-bit from a 32-bit operating system? Do you have more than 3512 MB of memory?

Do you have the chip-set INF file installed on your computer? An INF file is not an actual driver, it's a file that describes the characteristics of a certain computer component so that the operating system knows how to make use of it, how to exploit it. That might explain why the operating system in this case thinks the USB ports on your system are USB 1.0 (or 1.1). The USB ports on a computer are normally controlled by the South Bridge which together with the North Bridge make up the chip-set of the system.
Find out the exact name of the chip-set in your computer.
Head over to the official website of your chip-set designer.
Download the INF file(s) for your chip-set from the chip-set designer's website.
Install the INF file(s) for your chip-set and restart the computer.
That, if anything, should do the trick. Let me know if you need any help identifying the chip-set inside your computer or locating the appropriate downloads from the chip-set designer's website.

The only description I have for this integrated network card is:

I got that from Everest (system information). The main board is marked ms-6553 ver 1, if that helps.

The computer is a Compaq Presario 8000 (8ZSXE2). Compaq has all the drivers for download except the integrated network card. They don't even list one.

I've been through at least a hundred web pages. It seems to me there should be something at; but, I can't find any network drivers at all there.

Suggestions please!
