Hello, I had some problems with my laptop Compaq presario v2000. I need it to format it, but the only cd that I have is the DELL Recovery cd for windows Home. (my laptop has the code for the windows xp home, so i thought that it was not illegal because i already paid for windows)
anyway, I have windows, but a lot of hardware is having a problems: mass sotorage controller, multimedia audio controller, network controller, pci modem, sm bus controller, universal serial bus (USB controller and video controller) I tried to install them from the HP website, but it didn't work, I download (paid) drivers from a website, but it says "The INF file does not contain information for this sistem's hardware"
What can I do? is there a place where I can download the recovery cd windows xp home for a compaq?
Thanks

Contact Comaq and see about purchasing a recovery cd for your model of laptop. Cost should be less then 50.00 USD
This will have all the original drivers for your system. Use the link I supplied in first post.
