My cousin bought a computer that had BSOD. Since he couldn't fix it he brought it to me to reformat it. It originally had windows vista and the previous owner upgraded it to windows 7. Since he bought it with no discs he couldn't figure out how to fix so he gave it to me to just format to XP(legit copy).

Now i didn't know it came with vista before i formatted the frickin thing and now i cant any of the correct drivers. Dont even know if they exist.

So

Thats my problem and im looking for any kind of advice/help

Thanks for looking/helping in advance:)

BTW before i forget its a Compaq presario V6000 V6305NR

Thanks again

Hello and welcome to the forum!

Is this system inside the US?
In the beginning there was the command line.

Try these

Looks like drivers might be native to XP except the WIFI.
Odd that for Vista they list the rest of the drivers but not 2000 or XP.

If you could get an Internet connection working you might just have it go out and detect the drivers.

What devices are splatted in device manager?

Thats the entire device manager list.
Discount the devices that have a + in front of them
Which ones are splatted (!)?
Whats listed in other devices?

Compaq has a V6000T a V6000TX and a V6000Z listed.
Under each they have the drivers you need.
Check the sticker on the bottom of the system to identify it.

Here is the link.
Install the chipset drivers first. Then the order really doesnt matter but I always do video, sound, nic, wifi then modem because Im old school.

Try the V6000T drivers
You want the Intel chipset
Mobile Intel 945GM graphics
Conexant Audio
Conexant Modem
and Intel Network & WIFI

Looks like its pretty much the same for various models of the V6000 so they should work

Sure, processor shouldnt matter.
Make sure to do the chipset first.

Im speculating on the other drivers based on the last Presario V6000 that I worked on.
The list I gave you were the drivers it used.

Wort case scenario is that the driver wont find the hardware needed and therefore wont install.
In the beginning there was the command line.

Worth a look (ignore all ads), http://www.technize.com/3-ways-to-find-unknown-device-drivers-in-windows/ . Do not download any software.

How are you attempting to install the drivers & what happens when you try?

What I do is use a flash drive & make folders for each ie chipset, video, sound, wifi etc.
Download the drivers into the appropriate folder then double click on the installer.
Always do the chipset first.
Then when they are succesfully installed I burn a cd for future use.

Please double check & confirm the model number located on the sticker on the bottom of the system to ensure that we have the right ones.

Edit: Does the system have a 5 in 1 card reader on it?
If so these may be the correct drivers for the system.
