Compaq C770tu Windows XP Drivers

I think this is a quite useful info for those who buy this model of laptop and like to install windows xp instead of vista to their laptop.

New update 08 June 2008: the wireless driver for this model is Atheros AR5006x, you can download it here. I tested and it work fine.

Original Link :

Intel Chipset,(install and reboot before other drivers):

Intel X3100 Graphics:

.Net Framework:

Quick Launch(requires.NET):
MS UAA (required with a reboot before Conexant):

Conexant SmartAudio 221:

Use this for audio.Unzip to a folder.Run installer.if it errors use Device Manager.
From Device Manager,right click "Audio Device on HD",choose Update driver,
No to connect,
Install from a list or specific location,
Select Don't Search, I will choose the driver to install,
For the Hardware Type select 'Show All Devices'
Remove the check from "Show Compatible Hardware" and click on "Have Disk".
Next...browse to the unzipped folder and choose the "WiSVHe5.inf".
Ignore XP when it complains.
Use the Vista drivers for Alps touchpad,Modem and USB Storage:

Dou you have Intel or Broadcom wireless adapter?
