Hi,
I have recently reinstalled XP onto my laptop, 'Compaq Presario r3000', but I'm having trouble getting the drivers for some of the hardware.

Specifically:
Base System Device
Multimedia Audio Controller
PCI Modem
SM Bus Controller

I have been on the Compaq/HP support site but cant seem to find what I'm looking for.

Does anyone know of good free driver 'fix' program I could use as a quick win? Or know of a good site where I may find these drivers?

Any help is very appriciated.

Thanks alot in advance.

Ok well first you would want your chipset drivers installed again. That should let windows identify the hardware. Then the multimedia controller sounds like a sound card which would be next on the list. Then it would be a dial up modem, in other words you need modem drivers. Then it sounds like you have a camera memory card reader. You would need those drivers last.

How would I find my chipset drivers?

There are two ways to do this. First, under the assumption the computer was store purchased or online (meaning you did not build it) you can get the factory restore discs and use those to reload the drivers by putting them into your computer while in windows. Then just browse to the necessary drivers and load them up. Or if you do not have the recovery media, you would go to the manufacturer's website, look up your pc, and download your drivers there and simply install them. Just be sure to reboot after each install.

This notebook came in several versions, including an AMD model and an Intel Model.
Use the model number on your service tag to locate the correct drivers.
