Updating compaq presario drivers windows xp
Follow the prompts and allow the software to install in its default folder unless you prefer to install the files in a different folder.
After the program has extracted its files the program's installer will throw up an error message that states that your Windows version is not supported (the actual error message may vary; I saw no fewer than three different error messages when I was trying different drivers and compatibility modes). Since the file was downloaded from HP the file should be trustworthy, but I would not ignore an error message from a file that I downloaded from an independent driver website.
The default 1024x768 graphics driver that gets installed by Windows 8 is okay, and I would have remained happy enough with 1024x768 if I had no other choice, but I wanted the full 1280 screen width!

Office 2010 works fine, as well as all the other programs that I use, and it might be possible to find a better driver that will handle the store games properly, but since I use the laptop for business software then I'm not going to worry about the one known incompatibility.] Run the downloaded file by double-clicking (or highlight and press enter).(If your Presario has a different graphics card you may need to find the different drivers.
