  • More large hard drive for Compaq Presario CQ56-103SA


    I have a Presario, model CQ56 (103SA), the hard drive that I want to upgrade. Is this possible?  As the laptop has Windows 7 preinstalled, how can I do to get re-installed?

    Thank you and best regards,


    The specifications indicate a hard drive of 250 GB. Yes that can be upgraded to a 1.5 to (6 times larger) or somewhere in between. 750 GB is the sweet spot right now or even 1 TB.

    Also, your drive is a model of slow 5400 RPM so I suggest at least upgrade to a 7200 RPM model. This is the model 750 GB 7200 rpm:


    This shows how to replace the hard drive physically:


    If your old drive still works, you can burn recovery DVD in the HP Recovery Manager. If the Windows installation is still OK (no viruses or anything like that) we can show you how it is enough to copy the old drive to the new so that you have all your programs and data. This operation may take some special software and hardware but not expensive. We can also provide a Windows 7 reinstall only disk image, you can recover Windows and then get the pilots and others from this site. There are several options, in other words.

    Hello Forums HP!

    I would really appreciate if someone can help me with this problem.

    I have a Compaq Presario CQ57-339WM

    Hard drive has failed and replaced. Installed Windows 7 64.

    I found all the drivers here, excpet for the integrated graphics chipset.

    I get the yellow question mark for "SM BUS CONTROLLER"

    I tried the Chipset and graphics drivers on HP, but none works.



    Graphics, I tried & Intel AMD



    I also watched upward the processor and the graphic information on this page:


    went to Intel page for drivers and none worked.

    Heres directX Info:

    Intel Celeron CPU 1.5 ghz B800

    Intel HD Graphics Family


    You don't need the Intel chipset driver to install the smbus controller.  You may need to install it manually.

    Give this one a try... auto install.


    Manual installation if auto installation does not work...


    Download and unzip the file.

    Go to Device Manager and click the controller smbus needing drivers.

    Click the driver tab.  Click on set to update driver.

    Select her browse my computer for driver software option and navigate to the driver folder, that you unzipped.

  • HP930c driver for Compaq Presario again with no parallel port but...

    I have a HP 930C printer, which works very well with as a local printer on the Dell desktop computer. I just bought a new laptop Compaq Presario CQ57, running Windows 7 Edition Home Premium, which I have "networked" to the Dell. Everything works fine BUT I want to print on the Compaq 930c, 'through' the Dell printer.

    In other words, using the 930c as a network for the Compaq printer, never as local Compaq printer.


    to do this, I need a 930c on the Compaq driver: the original driver is on a DVD / CD that tells me that Win 7 is not up-to-date enough to Win 7 process, download the drivers from HP tells me the driver built into Windows 7 (!), but Win 7 can not finish installing the driver because the process requires that the 930C is connected to the device of Win 7 (Compaq). But the Compaq has no parallel port (only USB) so I can't plug it! And nor would I, I want to do all my printing via my network domestic (IE "by the Dell).

    Useful thoughts or suggestions on how to solve this problem would be greatly appreciated - please!

    Best regards

After the re - install all drivers are not available. After browsing the site HP Web is not available for Windows XP. I'm waiting for all his help. Thanks for the solution


    What you expect and that you end up with, are two different things.

    No HP PC consumer in the past 7 years has support for windows XP.

    When you use a PC for work that you can buy a PC company that normally support for other windows operating systems.

    You will need to find XP drivers individual available Web sites by the hardware manufacturer.

    I'll try and help you find the drivers, but no guarantee of success.

    First install the Intel chipset driver and restart.


    Then try this graphics driver:

  • New hard drive for compaq presario c500 running vista. I want to switch to windows 7

    I'm fixing my laptop aunts. He a presario c500 compaq running windows vista. I bought a new hard drive. I would like to install windows 7. She could get windows 7 discs for free when she got off the computer, windows 7 was not yet. They have offered free windows 7 for people who bought the PC just before its release. Is it too late? I guess it's too late. Is there anyway I can get windows 7 for free? Or is there any discount for the upgrade to vista. I can't afford windows 7 discs.

    In my opinion, it's too late to get a free version or price reduced from Windows 7. This offer was available about two or three years, if my memory is good.

    You can Contact HP and ask.

    Best regards

  • Compaq Presario CQ56 - :(wireless Internet problem

    Hey everybody,

    So I just joined here to see if anyone can help with my problem, because frankly, I'm out of options now about two weeks asking friends and colleagues and searching the Internet for answers to similar problems. I tried twice with the information I found on this site for quite some time and it does not work for me!

    In any case, I have a HP Compaq Presario CQ56 laptop. It has been implemented correctly when I bought it, everything worked perfectly. I managed to catch a virus that prevented me from even turn on my computer (which is strange, because I'm not a fool with computers, and I know what not to do/download sites to visit), so I had to restart my computer to stock, I used my Windows 7 disc, partitions formatted and installed windows again.

    Now, for some reason it doesn't connects wireless Internet. It connects when I have an ethernet cable connected, but it is not all networks, as shown in this screenshot:

    (And also here's a cute Bunny for your pleasure)

    So you see my problem it is very frustrating. I don't know what is the cause, but I guess it must be a driver problem? Which is why I write here, if this is indeed in the wrong section, please accept my apologies.

    Here is an another screenshots that can help, just in case:

    If someone could shed some light on the problem for me, or even to resolve, I'd be very grateful it is extremely annoying. As I said, it works fine when I have my laptop connected to the internet, when I'm in College, but when I come on a weekend, I can't put my laptop, because I only WiFi at home.

    Thanks for reading
