Hi frnds

I have compaq presario c700 laptop which has windows vista as inbuild OS. Due to many dll issues and corrupted directories , I changed it to windows 7, 3 months back.But my system is very slow and takes too much time.

I did that, but when i try to restart ,the system doesnt ask 'press any key to continue boot....' It just goes blank screen ...nothing happens for hours.

Hello I am having issues with my Compaq Presario C700 Laptop. During use (and no specific use either). It will randomly freeze up for about a minute, screen will go blank, when it comes back on (15 seconds later) the screens resolution is set to 640x480, with 16 bit color. Can't change the display settings. Checked the drivers and the monitor shows up with the proper installed drivers. Chipset drivers are still installed correctly, VGA drivers installed correctly. Nothing looks out of the ordinary.

Dear Friends,
 
Hope all is well.
 
What is the exact replacement model and number AC Adapter for an Compaq Presario HP C700 notebook? There seems to be a larger and smaller pin configuration for this model. 
From the Start>computer>right click> properties> it states the notebook as a Compaq Presario HP C700.
Specs on the bottom:
s/n:[personal informatioin removed]
p/n: KC590UA#ABA
Service tag also lists C751NR

Also, the AC adapter is either "flaky"/defective or the input on the Notebook is "flaky?" This must of been a known issue with this model due to the tiny pin size. I've owned numnerous other HP notebooks and this is the only model that has had this "flaky" adapter issue.  
The issue is when you plug the adapter in sometimes it connects and the blue indicator light comes on..and sometimes if you happen to move the notebook from one place to another the light/connection is not solid. I'm assuming its the connector on the adapter and not the input in the notebook.
 
Any help or suggestions appreciated along with the "correct" AC adapter replacement number for this specific notebook. A source would be nice also outside of HP as an option.
 
Sincerely, Raphael

Hiya

The screen on my Compaq Presario C700 has gone green and fractally.It looks a bit like its eaten someones' acid. Not ideal, and is a bit migraine inducing...

It comes back to life if I tilt the screen right back, which says to me its a loose connection somewhere. Its not the motherboard, as I have checked it on an external monitor and is fine...

BUT

I have disassembled and re-assembled and its still the same, and now have a query...

Behind the screen, along with the ZIF connector that connects at the top , there is a tiny white plug on a silver cable that isnt connected to anything, and I cannot see anywhere it should live. Is this for a camera maybe, or is this maybe my problem?

Please, any advise would be massively appreciated. The disassembly manual on HPs website was completely useless, it appears to be for a different model than the one I asked for...

I look forward to your reply

Andy

Works perfect. .After those upgrades i installed small SSD which added for booting which gave more boost to system. .Replaced DVD-Drive with Caddy thanks to visruth, installed with 1TBhttp://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Hardware-Upgrades-Replacements/Dimension-of-DVD-CD-used-in-Compaq-Presario-C700/m-p/4926179 .

Only thing which doesnt cope with it is graphics card. Besides that all is fine, infact it is running more cooler than before. Thankyou for your advise

I've been having several problems with this laptop recently. Firstly, its a Compaq Presario C700 with Windows Vista on it and 1gb of RAM. My first issue was with the DVD/CD room drive (which I still can't get fixed). Then, I restored the computer back to it's factory settings because the person my friend who owned this computer before me had a lot of adware and malware junk on it. After that, I was still having an issue with the D drive. For some reason, it was full but the computer was restored to factory settings. So, therefore, I decided to just reformat the drive because I figured that it was causing problems with the computer's performance. However, the computer still had performance problems such as the Windows Aveo Aero theme wouldn't load properly. That was all fine and dandy. As long as the computer was still running. I would get it all fixed as soon as I got the time and money. Now, all of a sudden, I can't even get the computer past the startup "Compaq" loading screen. This all happened today when firefox all of a sudden updated itself (which was weird to me) then when it loaded again a screen popped up asked me to download or cancel "system.exe". Before doing so, I researched and saw several claims up it being a virus. However, the every time I kept clicking cancel, it kept popping up. So I finally pressed "install" which was probably dumb. 5 minutes later the computer shutdown firefox again and all this windows kept popping up (whic... Read more

While in the System Setup menu check the boot options and make sure hard drive is selected before Network boot.

You may have a failed hard drive that is not being detected in the boot order.

Hi,

I turned on my laptop this morning to find that the touch pad doesn't work. This wasn't really a problem as I generally use a plug-in mouse, however, upon restarting my computer again, my keyboard also doesn't work.

I'm running Vista 32 bit and I have no idea what to do.

Does this sound like a software problem or a hardware problem? Is it possible that I have a virus that is causing this?

Would my best solution be to re-install Vista?

I have everything backed up so I don't mind doing that, however, I don't know how. When I bought my laptop Vista was pre-installed so I don't have the CD.

I'd be very appreciative to any help you guys could offer!

Hello. Recently I installed a new Radeon HD 2900 xt video card in my compaq. Had to go into the
BIOS to set on board audio to enable to get sound through the on board audio card instead of the HDMI of the video card. All went great. I went to upgrade the ram with 2 sticks of 2 GBram PC 3200. found out that my motherboard doesn't support ram sticks over 1 GB. Kept getting the BIOS beep. Switched back to the old ram that was in it and the computer works like it always did, and during this I also pulled the processor and was going to upgrade that also but then found out that the new processor was a socket AM 2 and my motherbopard is a socket 939. Needless to say I just reinstalled the old processor.As I was saying the computer runs like it always did, no problems except now I can't get audio out of the on board audio anymore. Checked the BIOS and it is still set for the on board to be enabled and when I play any sounds the mixer will show normal signal level but no sound comes out of the speakers. Does anyone know what the problem could be? Surely the wrong RAM didn't mess up my on board sound could it have?

Hi,

I just purcased a factory refurb Compaq Presario Cq71 - 230sa laptop from PC world.
After switching the machine on i noticed there was no sound but didnt think anymore of it. It wasnt until i tried to play music that it hit me nothing was coming from the in built speakers. I have tried all the usual tricks of unistalling and reinstalling drivers, updating them and checking to see if the correct device is selected. I followed all trouble shooting tips and guides from the HP compaq website and even spoke to a tech person from pcworld who ran me through all teh same procedures. In the sound porperty box it shows that sound is playing as the little green bars move up and down as you would expect and windows is telling me that the device is working properly. I even installed windows 7 and still had the same problem and then did a factory restore back to vista and the problem still remains. I can get sound through headphones from the socket but nothing else.

Anyone had any similar problems or have any ideas on a fix?
As I have only had the laptop a few days my only other option is to send it back and get a replacment.

I just got a Compaq Presario S5000NX second hand with Windows XP and so far it's working great. Naturally I have to reload some third party software, but so far so good. I use Altec Lansing speakers (3 pieces with subwoofer). There is absolutely no sound whatsoever, including system sounds. I read one post that said to plug the speakers into something else to see if it's the speakers (thank God for this site!) so I plugged them into my iPod and they work just fine. I am at a loss as to what to do. There are no system sounds, but whenever I plug them into the tower connector it makes a sound, so I know something's happening, I'm just not sure what.

I have Googled and searched all over for drivers, etc., but all I seem to be able to find are sites that charge for updating drivers. I'm not even sure I need drivers for these speakers, so I don't want to pay for something I don't even need. Ugh! Please help!

This computer has an ESS 1869 Audio Drive sound device installed and with the latest drivers. It originally came with Windows 95, but was upgraded to Windows 98SE a couple of years ago.

The problem seems to be with the Volume Control master slider returning to the "down" position when you close it. When the Volume Control is kept open and the master slider is kept in the "up" position, it will play sound very briefly and then fade out until you can just barely hear it.

I have checked all the Volume Control and Multimedia settings, have run the DirectX 9.0 dxdiag.exe tool, and have even even changed speakers, but I cannot resolve the problem.

I would really appreciate some assistance in this matter.

A:Sound Problems With Compaq Presario 5030

you can try uninstalling your sound drivers in device manager, then reboot and have windows install the sound drivers again.

If that doesn't fix the problem, I suspect you have some audio software that is controlling your sound. For instance, I had a customer once that had multiple media players installed such as Real Player, Winamp, MusicMatch. If they are all trying to access your sound files, there could be a conflict. Try uninstalling some and leave your favorite one, this may fix your problem.

If all else fails, do a restore!

A:No sound from Compaq Presario v5000 Notebook

Problem solved--sound is back. In Control Panel>>...>>Sound and Audio Devices Properties>>Audio tab Default device was "Modem #0 Line Playback". I clicked on the expandable arrow and there was "Conexant AMC Audio".  When I selected this one, all the grayed -out buttons became accessible and my sound came back.

A:compaq presario v6500 sound driver help

the model audio you have is Realtek High-Definition Audio Driver 6.0.1.5494 A, which is specific to Vista
What I would try is to download the driver from compaq and try it to see if it will work, as the driver may be specific to Vista, it seems specific to that model laptop

here is the link to download the original driver that was installed when you got pc

A:Can't get sound back into Compaq Presario 2199US

Sounds like you just need the drivers.

I've had several of my own and relatives' Compaq Presario desktops and laptops over the years. I remember after installing a new hard drive and a fresh copy of Windows (not the one that came with the computer), that there was no sound. I used their support e-mail, and even though the the computer was no longer under warantee, they provided me with a way to get the drivers.

Here is their addy. I would bet that within 1-2 days you'll have a satisfactory response from them. If not, let me know, and I'll dig around for the drivers I have.

Hello,

The sound on my 3-month old Compaq Presario SR5510F is not functioning at all. I cannot hear the sound on webcasts. There is no sound on clips on the internet, including videos. I cannot hear any music playback ;and now, I cannot hear persons that I chat with on the Skype, though they hear me when I speak.

I took the computer to the Geek Squad today at BEST BUY. They tested it with their accessories and told me all was fine. I bought a new headset and external speakers. When I returned home and connected these, together with my DELL monitor, to the computer, there again was no sound.

It is very frustrating not having the sound as I do conferencing on Skype and Go To Meeting quite frequently. I have one on Monday morning. I need and will appreciate your help for solution.

Thanks.
 

A:Sound problem with Compaq Presario SR5510F

Hi there

Have you tried reinstalling the drivers for your soundcard?

To do so you must first uninstall the current drivers by starting a run dialog (Either Start > Run or by holding down the windows key and pressing "R") and typing in:

devmgmt.msc

You find your sound card/audio device, right click, go to properties, and under the driver tab select "uninstall."

Then download and install the correct driver:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/...&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&os=2093&product=3740354

if that doesn't work, try this one:

ftp://152.104.238.19/pc/audio/WDM_R198.exe
To find other drivers for your system and more support go to:

The headphone jack is messed up, and the O shaped plate that goes on the plug is missing. But, if I plug in headphones and point the headphone plug up, sound can be heard from the headphones. Is there any way to fix the laptop speakers?

I am wanting to find out some information on RAM for my HP Presario Notebook C700. It looks like the maximum RAM that it accepts is 4GB (DDR 667 Mhz). If I install 2 times 2GB Modules does that mean that the system will only acknowledge 3BG and not 4GB. I only bought one 2GB module to put in to replace the 2 * 512GB Modules are currently in it. If I put the 2GB module in will that work fine by itself on one bank. I read somewhere that I should make both sides equal and install either 2 1GB Modules or 2 2GB Modules. I hope I am making sense. Advice would be helpful.
 

A:RAM For a HP Notebook Presario C700

If you have a 32bit OS then it can only read 3.25GB of RAM do to limitations of the OS. If you have a 64bit OS your system can read 8GB or more of RAM depending on the hardware.

The benifits of putting in 2 sticks or RAM as opposed to a single stick is that 2 sticks can run in dual channel mode which speeds up the RAM. Of course your computer and RAM have to be dual channel as well and 99% of hardware is.

Hi,

I just purcased a factory refurb Compaq Presario Cq71 - 230sa laptop from PC world.
After switching the machine on i noticed there was no sound but didnt think anymore of it. It wasnt until i tried to play music that it hit me nothing was coming from the in built speakers. I have tried all the usual tricks of unistalling and reinstalling drivers, updating them and checking to see if the correct device is selected. I followed all trouble shooting tips and guides from the HP compaq website and even spoke to a tech person from pcworld who ran me through all teh same procedures. In the sound porperty box it shows that sound is playing as the little green bars move up and down as you would expect and windows is telling me that the device is working properly. I even installed windows 7 and still had the same problem and then did a factory restore back to vista and the problem still remains. I can get sound through headphones from the socket but nothing else.

Anyone had any similar problems or have any ideas on a fix?
As I have only had the laptop a few days my only other option is to send it back and get a replacment.

Thanks is advance for your help

Hi: You can upgrade to a 64 bit operating system as your hardware can support it. However, I wouldn't do it if I were you as your PC can only take a maximum of 2 GB of memory. That must be a BIOS limitation as the chipset in your PC can recognize up to 8 GB of memory with a 64 bit OS.. A 64 bit OS needs more memory to run than a 32 bit OS does, so there would be no benefit to you installing a 64 bit OS with only 2 GB of memory. IMO, your performance would actually suffer a little over a 32 bit OS running 2 GB of memory. There would be no difficulty installing a 64 ibt OS as your PC's support page has 64 bit drivers available. Most if not all of the Vista 64 drivers will work with W7. My rule of thumb is to never install a 64 bit OS unless you have at least 4 GB of memory installed. Paul

3. On my IBM laptop, the left click button has begun to inconsistently respond. I think it is wearing out. A similar issue could be occurring w/ your CPQ lappy.

Then it will restart a thnird time and do the same thing ,but on the fourth restart it used to run completely normal no reboot,no freeze just perfectly fine this is plugged up or on battery power it does not matter.

It should still be under warranty. I know that you dropped it but it sounds like a cooling fan or 2 broke and as soon as it heats up it freezes. You will most likely have to send it back to get fixed unless you are comfortable taking apart a laptop.

I have a Compaq Presario C700 which is giving me the following error:
No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key.

I'm a technical user and have been able to fix just about anything, until now. I've done some research, and I've found that this Compaq C700 is a terrible computer that just can't be fixed. They're probably right.

I've tried to boot off an external optical drive, but this failed to load the system. I've checked the boot order is correct and that the optical drive was enabled in the BIOS, but this still did not allow me to boot from the optical drive. I knew that it recognized a system there because it had an underscore, which meant it was trying to boot from the disk, but sadly, no luck.

As for the hard drive, I've replaced it with a spare, couldn't install Win7 on it directly from the laptop, so I installed it on my desktop system, then put it back in. Still, the message. No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key.

I've verified every available BIOS setting to the last detail. The only thing I could think of and haven't yet tried is to try to see if there's a CMOS battery anywhere and disconnect that, but I'm not sure where that could be on a laptop, and taking this thing apart is practically impossible.

I know the CPU and system board and everything else seems to be in working order, it's just that it can't seem to work off of a Windows 7 disc or installation. A red flag for me was when I went into the BIOS (InsydeH20)... Read more

If I click on wireless options, I get the message that the wireless adapter is not installed and configured.

4. turn on the power and try to boot to setup (BIOS)

If it enters the BIOS then you should be able to just press F5 to reset to defaults and then F10 to save and exit. The PC should work now.

However, if after the power drain you still can not get in the BIOS than there is a MAJOR problem which would require some type of repair.

i dont know anything about computers so i will need a detailed explanation and i need to know how to fix it!! it just stays on the compaq screen

A:My Compaq Presario 2500 wont go pass the compaq screen

Hello lilevee22,

Before the problem started was anything added to or installed on the system?

Try booting to Last Known Good or Safe Mode.

Restart the computer during the boot process repeatedly tap "F8" you should get

the Advanced Options.

Let us know if able to get the system to boot with either option.

Hi guys...
I just plugged my Onkyo 6.1 Channel (S-680) to my computer. I connected the receiver to the Digital Out port of my motherboard (Intel 915GV Chipset-Asus PTGD1 - LA). It uses the Realtek ALC880 drivers. Whenever I open Sound Effect Manager and do the Speaker Test, sound comes only from my front speakers. The rears/centre/sub all light up but no sound is played. However, while running games/music/films I get sound from all my speakers (though not very satisfactory and not real surround sound). Can anyone please help me with this?

Also, I can't open Realtek HD Audio Manager (RTHDCPL.exe). Only RTLCPL.exe (Sound Effect Manager) works. When I click on RTHDCPL.exe nothing happens. Please do help out.

Thanks.
 

A:No Sound From Surround/Centre/Subwoofer In Realtek Sound Effect Manager Test

try this:

1) try to go to the settings of your sound effect manager & there are selections there for 2.0,2.1.5.1 or what ever you may find that corresponds to your speaker channel.

2) if nothing corresponds to the given selections,try to download the latest audio driver from your motherboard's manufacturer website.

3) otherwise,you need to plug-in a sound card that has the feature to play with 6.1 channel audio.

goodluck

How do you access the Bios on a Compac Presario 4110. I keep getting the message 162 Sytems Options not set. 163 Time and Date not set. Having visited Compac they were not a lot of help. Downloading the software recommeded by them was a waste of time, still got the above message. Tried all the usual keystrokes etc no good. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I friend of mine purchased this Presario in 2004. She hasn't had internet since about 2006, so she hasn't had any of the updates since then. I brought her tower home with me since I have internet to load her updates. We're trying to get it internet ready. When I brought it home last week nothing would open. So yesterday she gave me the system recovery disc. I started with the Standard Recovery, but there were too many files that it couldn't recover. So I then decided to do a full recovery. After the full recovery it was rebooting and it told me that not all the system could reload and I couldn't hit okaybecause it wouldn't read / acknowledge my mouse. So, I unhooked her computer and rehooked mine to see what her alternatives were. I found a website, they wanted to know all the things it wouldn't oload. All I can remember is that it was things that could me downloaded later like: Norton, AOL, Adobe, MSN, and QuickTime.

So, I unhoked mine and rehooked her's up (and booted up my laptop). When her's came back up it's saying: NTLDR is missing Pres Control + Alt +Delete to Restart

My question for you is there anyway I can save her conputer? She doesn't have a lot of funds, being a singe mother of a 7 yr old and I'm just a good friend trying to help her out.

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide

If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. IF this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Check to make sure new hardware or software is properly installed.
If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updates you might need.

ok I hace a compaq that is all messed up. lets see one day the monitor would not work after a storm. Bought another, For a while the screen would be blue but change back to normal. The pc also would have a hard time starting up after it was in idle. We would do a hard start and for a while that worked. Now when I try to start it it turns on but the monitor says no vga/dvi input. There is also none of the preverable beeps that are supposed to be there so in short (well long)the motherboard is fried? So do I use it as a planter in the yard or is there a way to get it up and running. It runs on XP media center it has a micro ATX form factor motherboard it is also an AMD 64 Anthlon. ram is 256 mb 1Rx16 pc 4200 ddr2 533 mhz. With all that said can I just replace the motherboard and reinstall the reinstallation disks and be up and running? ( if it could only be so easy) What about the cpu. i know many questions here thanks for patients. Please help me. Tina

does your system have agp or pciex (or even pci) slot free? Is the graphics on board? It sounds like a graphics card problem, even if it is onboard. I'd try a replacement card (even if it's just a pci card) and see what happens...

I have purchased a Compaq Presario 600 with an Athlon XP 2200+ processor. I do not have a copy of Windows XP to wipe it with. Is there any way with the installed XP that I can refresh this system and remove data frome previous owners? Or Can I load Win 98?
 

A:Compaq Presario 600 ??

Compaqs usually have a hidden partition with all the factory loaded software on it in an image format. As long as it does and you can figure out how to access it you could probable do that - but you almost likely need the XP Product key and may need to reactivate XP after the recovery. XP can only be install on one machine at a time - so if they are still using it you are out of luck.

Watch the boot up for any recovery messages or take a trip to www.Compaq.com and look up the info for your make/model.

Hey guys,
I just recently bought a Sound Blaster Live! 24-bit external sound card to connect my 5.1 speaker set into. I plug the Sound Blaster into my laptop which runs Windows Vista Business.
I have been able to get all the speakers working with the Windows drivers installed using the "Virtual Sound" option (Control Panel -> Sound -> Speakers -> Enhancements.) Windows tests all speakers correctly also.
However, when I install the updated Creative drivers it will continue to use only 2 speakers even with DVD's etc... even though Windows understands I am using 5.1
I would just leave it without the Creative drivers, however I need them in order to record audio properly through its inputs.
Has anyone else encountered this, or know how to fix this? Damn Vista always causing problems
Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Bruce

re JAL Cb 2800VS system running Win Xp Home- Altec Lansing 251 speakers- surround sound

"I bought this system 4 months ago. i am concerned that I may not be getting the full 5.1 sound. When I went to play a DVD film with the bass woofer speaker set to 6 the 2 rear speakers produced no sound. It is only when i switch back to 2/4 setting that they work but I suspect are just duplicating the front L& R speakers to simulate surround sound.

Is it anything to do with how i have wired them up. the back of the base unit doesnt correspond to the 251 system booklet. The 3 top vertical connections ( back of base unit) are marked ( from the top) cntr/lfe pink; rear purple, s/pdif-yellow. The leads are unhelpfully BLUE, GREEN and YELLOW so do not match. Also the yellow jack is too small to take any lead.

The horizontal set of 3 below are coloured yellow ,green and blue! Yellow has a microphone symbol, green has a " tree" symbol above it as has the blue.

Help please so that I can get all the speakers working as they should with the sub woofer switch in 6 channel position"

Well I sent this email to the PC supplier and talked to them on the phone. they confirmed that connections OK and sound card fitted to operate 5.1.channl sound.

I have a Compaq Presario 2700T with problems. When I press the start switch it runs for about five seconds and then shuts off. It doesn't even run long enough to give me any screen image. It does this on every attempt to start the computer now. Prior to that it flashed a blue screen on a previous start attempt but not long enough to read what it said.
Any ideas what is going on?

I took the keypad off and found the heatsink and fan loose from the motherboard. The four soldered nuts that the heatsink and fan mounting plate screw onto are broken off from the motherboard. I am not sure if this is what is causing the problem but it's not good. I tried to start the computer while holding pressure on the loose mounting plate but it did not make any difference.

hmmm, when you formatted the hard drive, did you FDisk it prior? When I worked for Gateway tech support, we had a little saying, "if nothing else, then FFR"... which meant FDisk, Format, THEN reinstall OS, in that order. Give that a shot with a windows ME bootdisk. You can find the download at bootdisk.com

I'm trying to reformat my mom's old Compaq Presario SR1303WM. I've set it to boot from the cd-rom and I almost had it. But after deleting the partitions and starting a clean install it would only load the programs to 20%. After that it locked up and wouldn't do anything. I had to shut down and restart.

Now, it won't load from anything. Of course the old OS is gone so it won't start up on the hard drive and it won't boot from the cd. It just keeps going to a black screen with "Error Loading Operating System". Can someone please help me. I know they can't get a new computer and I just want to get a new install on this one to speed it up for them. They had a ton of malware and such on it.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Since HP now owns Compaq, I am not sure what kind of cds you have in order to attempt recovery.
Per HP Support




HP computers that ship with Microsoft Windows XP do not come with recovery CDs. Instead, they use a hidden space (partition) on the hard drive to store the recovery information. The use of a separate partition provides a convenient process that eliminates the use of recovery discs that may be lost or scratched. A system recovery from the hard drive may not be possible in some circumstances. Your computer may contain Recovery Disc Creation software. Recovery discs for Windows XP are available from HP for a minimal cost. See Obtaining Recovery Discs for ordering information.Click to expand...

What kind of disk are you using to attempt restore, and are you using HP's support page?
Are you still set to boot from CD and to attempt to do so FIRST?
Is your BIOS properly identifying your hard drive?
What happens if you unplug the data cable from the hd before trying to boot to cd?
Do you have the "Recovery Console" option at some point during boot?

Hello! I am attempting to change a 80mm fan in my Compaq computer. The fan I want to change is, I believe, called the CPU fan. It has a lever next to it and 4 screws holding it down. My question is this: Do I have to move the lever on the side of the fan in order to pull the fan up and proceed to remove the screws or do I just remove the 4 screws?  Also, how do I remove the screws considering the awkward position they are in? (I've been working on trying to remove the screws; however, it is difficult to maneuver the screwdriver into the top of the screws to remove them. This is because part of the fan case is above the screws making it necessary to place the screwdriver sideways in order to remove the screws.) Thank you for your response.

If you've done a fresh install of Windows XP Professional you will need to also install the audio drivers.

They're available from the support section of Compaq's website. Head to the support area and enter your model details to be shown the correct drivers.
