ATI Mobility Radeon 7500 Drivers For Windows 7

I got a request from a user asking drivers for ATI Mobility Radeon 7500 for his Compaq Evo Notebook Running Windows 7. Most notebook form 200-2005 (such as compaq Evo Series and Lenovo Thinkpad T42) have this type of graphic card which didn't past the Windows 7 upgrade advisor. So, after windows 7 installation you will notice that it only listed as Standard VGA with limited graphic capability.

Actually you can install the Mobility Radeon 7500 in Windows 7 using the original Windows XP driver. In this tutorial I will show how to install it in EVO N800c.

1. First download the SP27665 (original Windows XP driver for EVO N800c) and run the driver. You will get an error, ignore it, because we just want to extract the driver file.
 (for other model, obtain the windows xp driver from your manufacture download site, if you want to use this driver for different model such as Acer and Toshiba, please contact HP for permission to use their software).

2.Now you will have C:\swsetup\SP27665 folder. We will use it later.

3. A device manager will open, right click on standard VGA and select update driver.

4. Select Browse my computer for driver Software.

5. Select Let me pick from a list of device driver from my computer.

 6. Now select have disk - browse and point to C:\swsetup\SP27665\Driver\2KXP_INF. Select the Inf file. (if you have more than one choice, choose the first one)

Click OK, next and continue with on screen instruction, it will flash a few second while installing the drivers. Reboot after finish.

Models of Compaq Evo that compatible with this intallation:

Compaq Evo n160
Compaq Evo n180
Compaq Evo n410c
Compaq Evo n600c
Compaq Evo n610c
Compaq Evo n620c
Compaq Evo n800c
Compaq Evo n800V
Compaq Evo n1000c
Compaq Evo n1000v
Compaq Evo n1005v

Intel 82852/82855 Graphic Driver for Vista

Officially there are no drivers for intel 82852/82855 released for windows vista and windows 7. They are only available in windows XP. The trick that i always do with upgrading old models is install the XP driver in wndows vista using compatibility mode. Not only driver but this trick also work with windows 7.

1. Download the XP Driver form the manufacture (There are lower chance for the drievr to work if you download it from Intel).
example : Compaq V2000 Driver
(for compressed files, extract it first)

2. Right click on the driver select properties.


4. Select run this program...'Windows XP'.

5. Right click again and select run as admin.

SATA Driver and Slipstreaming Guide

This guide is a follow up to the slipstream guide, which will describe how to locate and download the right sata drivers for slipstream process. (back to slipstream guide)

This Guide for notebook with Intel processor.
Search for f6flpy3286 using search engine (Google) download the files. I cannot give the download link from Intel Since it always removed/change over time so resulting in broken link. So here is an example:

On the picture above, I select the first from the result and extract the downloaded file using winrar. Here is the content in the folder:

For ION or ION LE chipset (HP Mini 311 and Compaq Mini 311c series models) and other Nvidia chipsets. Normally model with Nvidia chipset does not require slipstream to install windows XP. In case you need it here is the download link:
Download sata driver: Download

Remember, everything is license nowadays so in case the link expired/broken just search for:  serial ata

For any AMD model use the same sata driverwhich is:
Complete name: AMD Serial ATA (SATA) Advanced Host Controller Interface (AHCI) Controller Driver

Simple name: AMD SATA AHCI Controller
Version:  3.10.1540.64

HP User you can download it from HP Server: Download 
Extract or Install, ignore if error. If you install it you will get a folder c:\Swsetup\SP39719. In the folder what we need for the slipstream is the RAID7xx folder.

Conextant Audio Driver For Windows 7 64-bit

This guide made generally for all model, but the drivers made mostly for HP/compaq model. So if you ask me will this work for other model, the answer is YES but you need to get permission from HP so that your action is LEGAL. I do not hold any responsibility if you do it illegally, this post intend to help people who upgrading to Windows 7 64 bit and for tutorial purpose.


Normally, in my post i just give a driver, or a simple tutorial to solve the problems. But there are lots of email i received asking how did i understand and know the solution. So i think it is important to describe the way to understand how to solve this problem. I normally didn't want to write a post in details because i know my English not really good so i always keep it short to avoid grammatical error. But i don't want to disappoint those who asked me. So I apologize in advance for my poor English.

There are many type of conextant audio. The way to distingush between them is by the HARDWARE ID(if you dont know what the hardware ID is, don't worry you'll get to it later). By names there are many of it;
-conextant smart audio 221
-Conextant Ac-link Audio
-Conextant High definition Audio
-Conextant AC97 Audio
-Conextant venice Audio
-conexant cx20671 Audio
-conexant cx20561Audio
and there is lot more, i just make the list of the popular names around the net. (i think there are no need for you to know all the list unless you are in this field, just pm me).

So the conclusion is there are many names, but the one differentiate between them is the hardware ID. So lets continue with the Installation for your driver.


1. First, to get the right drivers, you need the hardware ID. to get the hardware id you can refer to my tutorial here:

2. After you get the hardware ID you will get the result like this(the numbers different base on your device):


3. Ok, from that list, pay attention to the line that i highlight, that is the important line to determine the hardware ID.  Note first line just added the &REV_02 , this addition &REV_02 added because you are using windows 7. So this is the reason why if you install using the windows XP or windows Vista driver directly it will failed, if you install manually from device manager some may success some may not because both xp and vista file doesn't contain &REV_02.
 variation may exist such as &REV_03 etc.The last line 3 and 4, the important line here to note is the number 1002 and 4370, this number show that this is audio type and it is conextant.

How to know the number in hardware ID represent what?
well just google it, many website contain information and database for this driver. That is why sometime realtek AC97 driver can be use to install driver for conextant ac link97 because both share the same ID. Some driver may have one or two ID, but some drivers may contain 100's compatible ID.


Ok, after you get the hardware ID, compare with the ID i gave below. Download and install the driver. Note that to install it you need to extract the driver (make sure winrar installed).
After that open the extracted folder. Right click at the setup file (exe: UIU.exe etc; name varies) and select run as admin and restart after installation finish.

1. Conextant 64 bit driver 1

2. Conextant 64 bit driver 2

3.Conextant 64 bit driver 3

4. Conextant 64 bit driver 4

There are a lot of ID to cover but i list the most popular driver.
So if you didn't find your driver here just get the hardware ID for your audio and post in the comment section below. Ill help to find the appropriate driver.


1. Ok if you try the driver above and failed do this:
-Open device manager (click start and type DEVMGMGT.MSC to open device manager).
-Right click on the audio with yellow and select update driver.
- Select browse my computer for drivers
- Select let me pick from a list of device drivers from my computer
-Point to the extracted driver folder
-and select the INF file

For those who have try many step in many website may read that SP38885 reported worked. but many not know that there are 2 version of SP38885, and the driver for the old one very hard to found.

Once again if you didn't find your driver here just get the hardware ID for your audio and post in the comment section below. Ill help to find the appropriate driver. To get the hardware ID refer nmy tutorial here:

For a those who new to the driver stuff, it maybe hard for you to undrstand, but if you need my assistant to get the right drivers (because you don't understand well the method i post) i willing to do so. Just leave your comments.

First download and install MS-UAA:
Download (sp33867) size 53MB

The above MS-UAA tested work, but the size to download is big, so you may also use this driver (i didn't test it yet but it also contain the 888111 article for MS-UAA)

UAA drivers (Must be installed before installing the audio driver):
it strongly recomend to use win xp , or win xp sp2, but in case you use sp3;
MS-UAA for Windows XP SP3: Download (KB835221)

Restart after installation.


1. Download this driver:
Download (sp34386.exe)

2. Double click to run the installation, ignore if fail. The reason is to extract the driver file located at c:\SWsetup\SP34386

3. Open device manager by click start and select RUN. Type DEVMGMT.MSC and press enter.
(you can also press Windows button + R at the same time to open the RUN windows)

9. select next - HAVE DISK.(uncheck the show compatible hardware button)

10. Select Browse, the point to C:\SWsetup\SP34386 and select the WIS30B5a.inf.

11. Click ok - next and continue with on screen instruction. Ignore if it complaints.



So for modem download this driver:
Donwload (SP34777)double click to run the installation. ignore if it fail.

repeat the process like the audio driver except for the step 5 and 10.

STEP 5: Right click on MODEM with YELLOW mark . Select UPDATE DRIVER.
STEP 10:Select Browse, the point to C:\SWsetup\SP34777 and select the inf file.



So as i mention earlier, this model use the following driver:
Conextant Venice High Definition Audio Device (5045)

I failed, you need to repeat the whole audio installation process (no need to install ms-uaa again) try with any of this driver:

Download (SP34200)
Download (SP40762)

report back which work and if still failed. Get me the hardware ID for your model and post in the comments section below. Also remember t add any details, error that you think is important to let me know. For those who try, report which driver work for you and what is your model.

Install Windows XP in Compaq CQ60 Guide

To Install Windows XP On this model, It is base on you CQ60 chipset. For model with Nvidia chipset you can directly install windows XP in this model. For Intel and AMD model you need to perform slipstream method to install windows XP.

What is Slipstream method?
It is a method to create a custom bootable windows XP installation CD. This method is alternative for using floppy disk (which most laptop didn't have this device) to install windows XP.

Basically to install windows XP in most model which design for windows vista requires SATA driver. During Installation it will ask "Press F6 to install sata...." , so if you have floppy disk you can press F6 to install proper sata driver.So, there is another way to install without floppy is by integrate your sata driver into your windows XP installation disk.

What happen if install with no sata driver?
You will end up with the following error:
1. No Hard Disk Drive Found
2. BSOD (Blue Screen Error).

How to do it?
Simply refer to my guide here: Slipstream method to Install windows XP

Installing Conexant CX20468-31 AC97 Audio Driver in windows 7

Last Update July 25 2014.

Here is the driver you will need to install, but please remember sometimes direct installation will failed. So you either need to tweak the drivers or install it manually via device manager.
1. Conexant CX20468-31 AC97 Audio Driver and Audio Driver EQ
Download SP34789 (32-bit)
Download SP35558 (64-bit)

2. To save your time, here is the drivers (modified) which I already tested and worked.
SP30399 (mod) (32-bit)
SP35558 (Mod) (64-bit)

3. You can use your original windows XP or Vista drivers, but you need to tweak the drivers or install it manually. You can read on how to do that below. (Note: If you have DELL notebook, you can simply install the drivers by using compatibility mode)

If the drivers failed to install, there are 2 method we can us to install the drivers.

1. Edit the drivers Hardware ID
2. Manually install the drivers via device manager

1. Edit the driver Hardware ID

1. First download your original windows XP drivers, you can use this driver instead:

Conexant CX20468-31 AC97 Audio Driver and Audio Driver EQ
Download SP30399

2. Right click and select run as administrator,(This method does not intend to install the drivers but we just want to extract the driver file.)

3. Then proceed the installation until the installation windows appear.

4. install it and ignore the error, now we already extract the driver file to C:\swsetup\SP30339. Note that if you are using different drivers set or you want to extract this driver in other location, you can extract the drivers using winrar or 7zip software).

5. Now we need to find our audio hardware ID first.

Follow Guide here to find your hardware ID, when you get it remember to paste the hardware ID in notepad (for further reference). The result should be like this, the ID is mine realtek audio and not conextant so your ID may differ from mine:

6. Now open c:\swsetup\sp30399

7. Now in the sp30399 folder find the qta3091.inf and open the files.

8. Now find the values i highlight in the picture below.

9. Then paste your hardware ID below the line %*WDM_AMCAUD.DeviceDesc%=WDM_AMCAUD,PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_4370&SUBSYS_3091103C with your hardware ID  in STEP 4.

so the line may look like this:


The method above use the SP30399 which is XP drivers, you may also test with SP37489 using the same method.

2. Manual Installation

Before we start, please install the audio drivers first, I recommend to install yopur original windows xp drivers. If you does not have it just download and install the drivers I provided above. Ignore if installation resulting in error we  just want to extract the driver files.

1.First open device manager by click start and select run type "devmgmt.msc" as shown in the pictures below.

 2. Then on the audio with yellow mark right click and select update driver.

 3. Then select browse my computer for the Driver software

4.Then select let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer.

5. Then select have disk and select browse

6. Browse to SP34789 and select the Qta3091.inf.
7. Proceed with on screen instruction. Ignore if it complaint.

You can repeat this process by using different drivers to get the best results. (In certain case mic does not work so you need to use different driver version).
