Hey.

I've recently downgraded my HP G6000, which came with Vista Home Premium pre-installed, I removed Vista by overlapping the partition it existed on with a fresh, legitimate installation of Windows XP Home Edition.
Now, I have a slight problem, the laptop which I have done this on, which has wireless, is unable to access the internet in order to validate my edition of Windows XP as genuine. I don't currently have a modem of my own, I'm sharing a router connection with a few people. so I rely on my wireless connection entirely to access the internet.

I didn't back-up my drivers as I wasn't quite sure, either way they're all gone now. What I'd like to know is the following:

- How/where to obtain every driver that is pre-installed on the HP G6000 laptop. Such as, a certain site that displays the drivers along with the downloads, including graphics card and such (nothing has been modified).
- How to make Windows genuine (it may be an odd question, but I'd just like to be re-assured that I have done this process correctly).
- How I would get the drivers from a friend's computer to mine (I'd assume USB would be a good choice, just not sure if drivers need to be installed through booting up the computer).

Thanks for any info :)

Re: New OS, Re-installing drivers - HP G6000 Laptop

Welcome to TSF....

The solution to this is as follows and you will have to use a computer with an internet connection and a CD-R burner.

The drivers you are looking for are the following: chipset, buss, network, audio, video and whatever else is on the chipset driver page. You will find these for windows xp on one of the two following sites: The computer manufacturers web site = HP, and/or the manufacturer of the motherboard web site. Once you have found them you download everything that pertains to your model computer for windows xp and burn them to a CD-R, the order they are installed usually is as I tyoed earlier but this is not necessary as long as all of the drivers are installed. Once this is done you should be ready to go. If you can not find these drivers it may be that the manufacturers either do not have them yet or are not going to support windows xp in which case you will have to go back to Vista.....

Re: New OS, Re-installing drivers - HP G6000 Laptop

I believe you can look through this list to find your specific model
and most of the drivers should be on there. I did the same with
a laptop that belongs to my friend. It too is also an HP and i also
do this with my Dell too when i need the drivers.

Just have to download and burn them.

Re: New OS, Re-installing drivers - HP G6000 Laptop[moved from xp]

I'm having trouble finding drivers for Windows XP for this model of laptop, as it's mainly for Vista, I'm not entirely sure where to look for drivers, so any help finding them would be appreciated.

Re: New OS, Re-installing drivers - HP G6000 Laptop[moved from xp]

Hi Phonix

You could download the following drivers to a CD or flash stick and run the exe. files. A CD maybe a better choice so you have them for the future.

Here are some drivers. Install in the order given.
Chipset driver:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/...softwareitem=ob-42431-1&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN

Graphics driver:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/...ex?softwareitem=ob-43453-1&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en

Broadcom WLan driver:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/...ex?softwareitem=ob-45290-1&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en

At this point you should be online. DO a full Microsoft Update. then proceed to the next set of drivers.

Audio bus (UAA) driver:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/...ex?softwareitem=ob-47284-1&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en

Audio:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/...ex?softwareitem=ob-45570-1&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en

Modem:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/...ex?softwareitem=ob-43284-1&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en

Touch Pad:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/...ex?softwareitem=ob-48345-1&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en

Quick launch Buttons:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/...ex?softwareitem=ob-31502-1&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en

AMD Processor Utility:
http://www.amd.com/us-en/Processors/TechnicalResources/0,,30_182_871_14098,00.html
Third one from the bottom of the list ver 1.3.2.0053

There is also this BIOS Update Ver. F.1F. Check the version you have and upgrade if nessary:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/...-1&lc=en&cc=us&lang=en&dlc=en&product=3560126

I have also attached an instruction sheet for your review. You may need this to install the UAA, AUDIO, and MODEM if the SP packs give you errors when installing.

If you run into problems, Please post the problem before going to the next driver.
Once they are installed check your device manager for any errors and post them to the thread.
Let us know how you make out.

Re: New OS, Re-installing drivers - HP G6000 Laptop[moved from xp]

Thanks for those, BCCOMP.

I'm wondering, would it be wise to install .NET Framework 3.5 at any point? Because some programs and drivers require it, any suggestions?

Re: New OS, Re-installing drivers - HP G6000 Laptop[moved from xp]

Hi Phonix,
Yes it would be wise, although it is not required to install these drivers.
You can go the direct route here:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...FD-AE52-4E35-B531-508D977D32A6&displaylang=en

But I prefer using custom install on the MS UPDATE PAGE. This way you could also see if there are any other drivers or features (ex. Widows media player 11) you may wish to install.
Thanks,
Bill

Hmm, I've come accross a pretty big problem, while installing Broadcom WLan Driver, I installed the directory, went into it, went through setup, but the Wireless still wasn't working. I'm not quite sure what to do at this point, any support would be appreciated :)

Well, it wasn't necessarily an error, it went through installation but my Wireless device still wasn't working, I can't even see the wireless connection status on the side of my taskbar.

Re: New OS, Re-installing drivers - HP G6000 Laptop[moved from xp]

Alright, but I can't see my wireless connection taskbar button, so I'm not quite sure how I'd locate my wireless devices, I went into 'Network Connections' on the Control Panel, it was completely blank though. So, any idea how I can locate this wireless device?

Hi
Look in the device manager :Other Devices. It may say PCI network controller
If you could give me a screen shot of the deivice manager that may help me to "see" which one it is. Here is how to post a screen shot:

Do you have the LAN working?
