Exclamation DRIVER NEEDED: Compaq f500 specifically f557US (Windows XP Professional) [IDE]

*I'm not really sure of the interface type*

Hello. I downgraded my compaq presario f500 from vista home basic to xp pro because I thought it would run better because it only has 512 mb of ram. Unfortunately alot of the drivers didn't stay and I'm trying to get internet capability on it. Nothing at all shows up in network connections in the control panel.

The compaq site doesn't host any ethernet drivers for my laptop. I used belarc and everest to find out what company so I could get drivers but they come up as none detected or unknown. My wireless doesn't show up either. Can someone help me get internet?

Support Information:
Device Type: Network Devices
Manufacturer: Compaq
Model: f500 specifically f557US
Interface: IDE
Operating System: Windows XP Professional
Age of Device: Not specified
FCCID:

Find it on DriverGuide | Find it with Google | Research manufacturer Compaq

I'm not sure we could help had you given a description of the hardware that you need drivers for.... without it, you don't stand a chance. Unfortunately, HP/Compaq does not offer any support for an OS that they never installed on a laptop. Also, unfortunately, laptops (unlike desktops) cannot use generic drivers, they must use specific drivers from the laptop maker OR special "hacked for laptops" drivers. The links might help in that area:

HP/Compaq Support Forum


Sites for "hacked for laptops" drivers:
http://www.driver7.com/
http://www.omegadrivers.net
http://www.laptopvideo2go.com
http://www.notebookdriverdownload.com
http://www.laptops-drivers.com

Also, here's some necessary reading when trying to change the OS on a notebook to a non-supported OS:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/d...d uct=3370444

And here's a thread that might offer some help:

http://www.getpcmemory.com/drivers/d...ws-xp-drivers/

http://www.pelltechnology.com/Compaq...nternal-Parts/


Changing the OS to a non-supported OS is time consuming, tedious, and often impossible. In addition to finding drivers for the hardware that Windows XP could not assist with, it may also require a bios change in order to work with Windows XP. If you're willing to spend countless hours reading and testing drivers, you might end up partially successful. I suggest you start in the HP chat forums and see if anyone else has attempted this same task and whether or not they were successful. And last, you can scour the manufacturers website to see if you can find a different model with similar hardware that has support in Windows XP. Good luck!
