XP Drivers for Compaq Presario V3424AU

All those who have purchased Compaq Presario V3424AU must have been frustrated looking for Windows XP Drivers for their system. V3424AU comes with Vista Basic preinstalled and XP users like us who do not want to shift to Vista, face problems relating to drivers.

So I am giving links below from where you can download the drivers and safely use XP.

Link 1
OR
Link 2

In case you are not able to install drivers or the drivers refuse to install or do not correctly install, I would suggest you to install the drivers from Device Manager.

Go to your Device Manger, check your hardware. Where ever you see yellow mark, right click – upgrade drivers/install drivers – give the path of the relevant driver you just downloaded and DONE!

In case you still are unable to find the right drivers or are unable to install them, feel free to mail me and I will help you. Justify Full

  1. I am planning to buy Compaq V3424AU. Would you like to share your review? Does it works well with XP? How long the battery works?

  2. Compaq V3424AU is a gud model. If u have not already bought it and are in no hurry rite now, I wud suggest u go for Dell 1420 or Dell 1520.

    Compaq’s performance is gud. It works well with XP but many people face problems with the drivers. But with Vista it just works fine.

    Battery should last u for 2.5-3 hrs under normal usage. But for gaming, 2hrs may be the limit.

    Install the motherboard drivers 1st. Then through device manager, select the options with yellow mark. Rite click them and go to the option of installing drivers. Select the path of drivers to install it. Make sure the driver file isnt in a .zip or .rar file.

    U can also copy the *.inf file to a folder on ur HDD and show that path for installation of drivers
