Compaq Presario

#1
Hi there i have a compaq presario R3000 (intel) laptop and I am looking for the drivers for the ATI Radeon 9000 vista drivers as well as the Audio drivers which is the ADI 1981B Audio Driver(soundmax). I would like to install windows 7 beta but I cannot get the drivers for the audio and video drivers. i have tried both websites and nothing. Please if there is anyone who could point me in the right direction I would gladly appreciate it.
thanks

Hi,
I've looked in vain for drivers to support vista but it seems that only XP is supported with that laptop..
In my search I checked the main site as well as this one:

Compaq Presario Sound Driver Issues w/ Vista - PC World Forums

Main site:
Select software and drivers #

Unfortunately with laptops, you have to use the drivers released by the maker of the laptop apart from a few 'rare' instances...

Thanks for the reply, I actually managed to get it working last night by installing the drivers in compatibility mode. I am unable to play and games but I can watch movies and play music and that fine for me. I also did a windows update which sorted out a few other issues and all is now working fine thanks.
