Display Drivers for a Compaq Presario 1200 1200-xl110

Discussion in 'Compaq' started by Harry Edwards, Dec 9, 2003.

  1. Well, my mom comes home and dumps a Preasrio laptop on my desk and
    told me to fix it. The whole thing is hosed so I reformatted.
    There's no modem, and no NIC, and Compaq doesn't have the display
    drivers on its website. Where am I supposed to get them?

    series, 12XL2xx series, 7300 series, and 7400 series

  3. Thanks. I imagine all their drivers are the same, since there's only
    one integrated download? Now I remember why I despise Compaq...
    They're worse than dealing with Chrysler. I'm surprised they don't
    make you buy a new driver CD. Gateway, Dell, even Apple all have
    drivers on their websites. not Compaq.

  4. I have the display and audio drivers. Now I need the modem, and PCI
    to ISA bridge driver. I'm guessing the "PCI communications device" is
    the modem I can't finr drivers for, and I don't know how to explain
    the PCI ISA bridge. I don't understand why its not on their website.

    Download a program called AIDA32.

    The link is http://www.aida32.hu/aida32.php

    You can run the program accross a network or from a CD ROM

    Use this tool to find out the chipset of the drivers you are missing
    and download the necessary drivers from the chipset manufactures.

    $10 says you have a Lucent WinModem, Google "generic lucent modem
    driver" and that should work for you. Its available on Agree/Lucent's
    web site.
