    very thanks to prasad

  40. nipun says:

    I’ve read that this laptop is not designed for use with xp.
    I switched to Ubuntu 9.04 after many occurences of the system “running hot” with temperatures reaching upto 80+ degrees (eg: while playing Bioshock), around 70+ degrees during moderate-heavy multitasking. Temperatures varied around 60 degrees during normal usage (eg. working with office productivity suites). CoreTemp was used to monitor the temperatures. The system runs quite faster and much cooler now with Ubuntu.
    I live in a coastal city in India- so the ambient temperatures are quite moderated.

    It’s required to install the NVIDIA driver in Ubuntu. You can do so as follows:
    “Download nVidia driver at and place it at your home directory. After downloading, close all open windows and press F1. Log in and enter password and then just connect to the internet. Press F2, kill gdm or kdm season by entering sudo killall , example:

    sudo killall gdm

    Install the nvidia driver. Make sure you are in the nvidia driver directory. If you downloaded it and placed it on the Desktop, make sure to change directories first.

    cd Desktop

    To install it, enter /NVIDIA-Linux-x**-***.** For example, if you downloaded Nvidia version 173.80:

    sudo sh

    choose yes to any verbose response. After you are finished installing the driver, reboot your computer.

    sudo reboot ”

    “Fresh,out of the box” Ubuntu cannot play non-free formats such as mp3,mpeg, etc- one must download the plugins. One way of doing it is to simply try to play the unsupported format with an appropriate player. The player will prompt to search for the plugin-set. Have your system connected to the net and allow the download.

    • cabgolf says:

      Had the same problem & searched the internet for the solution. No joy there. Here it is….found it myself.

      1st you have to format the hard drive and use your windows xp cd etc etc.

      I installed windows XP home edition 2000 edition(no service packs) & had no sound.

      Forget the other suggestions & progressively install all the service packs via online downloads. When you have successfully installed service pack 3, bingo!..all the required drivers/firmware will be installed. Restart your computer once sp3 is installed & all will fine…I hope!

      Good luck.

  62. Suresh says:

    thnks I could install audio as per the help.

  63. Sandip says:

    Thanks for the drivers mate.. it was really helpfull..
    I am facing a problem with the audio though..whenever I play at full volume or even at 70% volume.. the sound breaks very badly.. it feel like someone is stabbing me on my chest!!!! we all love our laptops u there anything I can do about this.. I hav tried all sound settings..

  64. prakash says:

    I dont know if anyone else is facing this problem or not and would really appreciate if someone can offer me help on this. I bought this laptop Compaq CQ60-101AU last year, Oct 2008 to be precise. And I have been kind of having this problem since then but never was sure if it was actually a problem or not. In most laptops, the moment an external speaker or headphone is connected to the port, sound output then comes out only from the speaker/headphone. But in my machine, the laptop speakers continue to operate in addition to sound output from the external speaker/headphone. Is there any technical issue or something that I need to do with adjust with the software so that this issue can be resolved. Its not interfering as such with any kind of work but just a query which I been having for sometime.

    Thank you very much for detailed instructions. I successfully managed to downgrade my CQ60-101AU to Windows XP. The link to Atheros driver is dead, so I downloaded it from
    It is a larger file, so I was a bit hesitant but the wireless is working fine now. Everything works great and much faster.
    If not for this webpage, I doubt I would have dared to install XP especially since it is not a supported OS by HP Compaq for this model.

    Rakesh Patel. some drivers can give us errors or even compatible errors(but these can be ignored).
    and the drivers can be installed by installer or by manually.. seems that yours don’t install.
    heres the audio drivers:
    if the installer gives you an error, theres a text file tell you how install it manually;)
    i hope these helps;)
