Hi,

I had a compaq cq61-313AX with windows 7, this machine packed it in. Bought an ( i assumed) identical computer with vista.
This is a cq61-210tu. I much prefer 7 and thought I could simply put my old harddrive in. Works fine except:

All my usb wont install properly - code 37 - driver cannot initialize

Two Mobile Intel® 945GM Express Chipset Family display adapters keep installing, one says it works, the other is a code 12.
Tells me to uninstall one so it has resources. Hp website says I have a Nvidia geforce g103m.

Tried updating drivers, tried uninstalling, they just come back...
Not a complete noob but I'm stuck here. Help much appreciated as cannot use my computer for anything good until this is resolved.

You cannot remove a hard drive from a Compaq CQ61-313AX laptop that contains Windows 7 and install it in a Compaq CQ61-210TU laptop (or vice versa) and expect it to load and work properly.

Both laptops have completely different processors, graphics, etc..

I'm aware they are different computers, however these are the only problems, and a harddrive is only storage. Is a reinstall of 7 on the new machine the only way to resolve this?

Its only a graphics card, why cant i just install it as new hardware with the correct drivers?

It's not that simple. You need to reinstall Windows 7 SP1 and any needed device drivers in the working laptop.

You can do a repair install on a factory OEM installation with the latest official Windows 7 with SP1 ISO file here: Dell Community - Windows 7 ISO Downloads, and use Windows 7 USB-DVD Download Tool to create a bootable DVD or USB flash drive with the ISO to do the repair install from within Windows 7.


Thoughts on this?
