Downgrade to XP on a Compaq Presario SR5110NX

The Compaq Presario SR5110nx is my newest downgrade attempt.


Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ (2.4 GHz)
Hard drive: 120 GB Standard
OS installed: Microsoft Windows Vista Home Basic

As you can see this is a budget machine with just enough memory to turn it on. Installing XP was an easy installation and gave no problems whatsoever. If you are unsure how to install xp you can go here .

The biggest issue with any downgrade is being able to find all of the driver. I first went to the compaq website to find out that Compaq does not support xp on this machine. This left me with the option to search for the drivers on google and after about an hour of searching i found what i was looking for:

Chipset & Ethernet Drivers:

nForce 430/410/405/400 - Windows XP/2000 32-Bit

Video Drivers:
Nvidia GEFORCE6150SE

Modem Drivers
Conexant RD01-D850

After everything was finished this Compaq Presario turned out to be a great XP machine
