I have bought a Compaq CQ58-201SA as a surprise gift for my young grandson.
BEFORE GIVING IT TO HIM, I want to load some programs, so it's all ready for him to go. However, when starting the new laptop for this purpose, I get asked to "Choose a Colour" (for the screen) and "Give your computer a name" as part of the initial setup process. Well, I don't want to do that - it's for my grandson to decide later - but I'm finding it impossible to move past this screen without inputting a name.
How can I get past this screen? And will there be any similar hurdles to cross before I can begin loading new software?
Please help a struggling grandad!

You can always change these settings later, but it's best to name the user name the correct name first.

Many thanks, Kalt.
It's a shame I won't be able to get his laptop in 'ready to go' mode before giving him the gift. Ah well . . .
Thanks again for your quick and helpful response.

You are looking for drivers for your laptop.
Here is a link to your driver page.
There are no drivers for XP.
What version of windows came on your computer?
Have a good day.
I work for HP.
