Happy New Year...
I'm desperately searching for drivers for

I have searched everywhere and can't seem to find them. Any help would be greatly appreciated...

Thanks!

This was the first place I looked. However, they seem to be only SP3.
Any other ideas?

Thanks again.

It looks like the computer came with Vista, so downgrading to XP will be difficult... but usually is possible.

Look in Device Manager for yellow ? or ! devices. Double-click one to display its Properties, then the Advanced tab. In the dropdown menu, choose Hardware ids. You should see a text string similar to PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0271. Do this for each yellow ? or ! device.

I am interested in the ones that show 10DE, which is the PCI vendor code for Nvidia (copy and paste the strings here).

Thanks. Below is the info you requested. Windows XP seems to be working, but I have initially been trying to configure the wireless connection. The driver I had downloaded, when executed, doesn't seem to do anything (the window quickly closes automatically before I can read it). If I go control panel -> Network and Internet Connections -> Network Connections, I only see a 1394 Connection (nothing for wireless). Thanks again.

palex71:

Here is the support and software site for the Compaq Presario V3617LA laptop that you should add and save to your browser favorites/bookmarks list so you can refer to it when needed.

According to the product specifications section, it came with Windows Vista Home Basic pre-installed.

Before you downgraded from Windows Vista Home Basic to Windows XP, you should've confirmed there were Windows XP drivers for all of the devices in that laptop and then downloaded and saved and copied them to a CD-R or USB thumb drive.

From what I can determine, that laptop has these devices:

NVIDIA GeForce Go 7150M graphics

Conexant High Definition SmartAudio 221 audio

Broadcom 4321AG 802.11b/g wireless connection

The wired connection device description wasn't listed, but I'm guessing it's a NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller model.

---------------------------------------------------

You provided the vendor and device codes that Frank4d requested while I was replying to you, so I'll leave you with him for now.

Attempting to install that driver launches XP's Found New Hardware Wizard for the Ethernet Network Controller, of which I have no software (and cannot yet connect to the internet to autosearch there). Is this something I should download from my working machine and burn to CD so I can perform this step?

Under Device Manager, there are yellow devices : Base System Device (x3), Ethernet Network Controller, Network Controller, PCI Devices, Unknown device, Video Controller

Thanks so much.
