Compaq Presario CQ42-359TU Drivers

 Hp officially release windows XP and Windows 7 drivers for this model. Here is the re-compose that i make adjustment to the drivers list:

1. Drivers that listed in windows 7 but not in windows XP:
- Broadcom bluetooth
- Broadcom Wireless
-Quick Launch Button

2. No webcam driver@software available so i added from the HP sources.

3. I did not list the BIOS because it is not for end user but for advance user. This step is to make sure end user safety.

4. GRAPHIC - in windows XP you have only 2 driver which izcs AMD and Intel graphic, while in windows 7 you have 3 including Intel 4 series chipset graphic drivers. To my understanding, there are m,model which use dual graphic, but sometimes for some models the dual graphic only enable in windows 7 and not in windows xp. In this case I'm not certain so i didn't add the Intel 4 series graphic on the list. The driver however available on intel download and support center.

5. Windows XP - Intel matrix storage technology replaced in windows 7 with intel rapic storage technology.

So, i edit the driver entry for both to have similar drivers list for both windows xp and windows 7.

Additional Notes:

Why there are no official driver release for windows 7 for this model?
It is become the HP/Compaq way to tell user what OS you should use with the model you have, so if there are only driver officially for Xp release mean your laptop only can be use with windows XP. However they not directly prohibit you to use other OS, but you will need to contatct them for technical issues such as compatible driver and other setting.

Compatibility: Windows 7 32-bit (x86) , Windows 7 64-bit (x64)

You don't need to install according to order. There are no chip[set driver for AMD base model, to check weather you need it or not, after open the device manager you will found there are SMBUS controller marked with yellow which indicate you need to install chipset driver. Base on my experience only few HP/Compaq with AMD processor need chipset driver.
If you have problems leave your comments in the question section below.
