Re: Compaq Presario CQ60-419WM XP Drivers

Have you checked the sticky post?, here

Your model is in scale of moderate to XP downgrade.

Identify your hardware first and start downloading the drivers as posted in that guide.

Re: Compaq Presario CQ60-419WM XP Drivers

Hi again,

 

I've managed to almost get everything working.

 

Everytime I load my computer now I get "An exception occurred while trying to run "C:\windows\system32\nvcpl.dll" error.

 

I read on the internet that this is related to my nvidia video drivers. I downloaded the latest on the nvidia site (link in the downgrade post).

 

What did I do wrong? If you require more information, please let me know.

 

Thanks,

Stephane

Re: Compaq Presario CQ60-419WM XP Drivers

Good job,

 

Yes, its Nvidia driver problem. Is it 185.85? Where did you download it? Nvidia site or Laptopvideo2go?

 

if download it from Nvidia site, uninstall the Nvidia driver from control panel.

Try the same version whoever with modded inf.

 

For GeForce Release 185.85, here

 

3-step process to install:

1. Download driver, double click and select extract,

2. Download modded INF and replace original INF in extracted folder,

3. Install & reboot.

 

I have a good experience (for my geforce go 7600) using Laptopvideo2go driver with modded inf, 190.38 is my the current driver, here

Re: Compaq Presario CQ60-419WM XP Drivers

Hi Rakhmad,

 

I initially installed this driver:

 

Nvidia Video graphics drivers

GeForce Release 179.48

http://www.nvidia.com/object/geforce_notebook_winxp_179.48_beta.html

 

 

When I uninstalled the driver above and installed the GeForce Release 185.85 Here: http://www.nvidia.com/object/geforce_notebook_winxp_185.85_whql.html

 

everything worked like a charm.

 

From what I've seen over the past few days and my previous questions over the past few years, this forum has exceptional helpers/techs. Thanks to everyone who has helped myself and others with downgrading from Vista to XP.

    

Thanks Rakhmad for your help,

Stephane
