QUICKPLAY DIRECT - What's Wrong with COMPAQ PRESARIO V3000 Series?Many thanks to all the contributors in this forum.
But I'm pleading if there is anyone who can help us to succeed in configuring the Quickplay for COMPAQ PRESARIO V3000 Series pls. do it urgently.
Previously, i'v read a thread about SATA drives, after a lot of struggle I reach the stage where quickplay partition will begin to log into windows, but a second after it will just crashed into the the Blue Screen. The thread I read where someone propose setting some SATA settings in the system BIOS, however, this is not the case in my COMPAQ PRESARIO V3000 Series because BIOS does'nt indicate any Device Configuration where u can set the SATA native mode. I also noticed that SATA native mode activation requires use of Intel Chipset Drivers for the IDE/ATAPI whatever, Compaq Presario V3000 uses AMD Processor with NVidia chipset. In short all my effort ended there with nothing more to doo.........
Pls could any one help?
I have a Compaq V3000 Series and it has Quickplay hotkey. However it does not come with Quickplay Direct and Quick Play for windows. I managed to download those files from Asifism website.
This is what I have done so far to install QuickPlay
1. I did a fresh Windows Vista Home Premium Installation.
2. I created a new partition 1028Mb in size for QuickPlay. I didnt format it and leave it raw.
3. After Windows Installation, I changed the 1028Mb drive name to X:\ drive as suggested.
4. I copy HPQPDP folders which I downloaded earlier from Asifism website to C:\swsetup\
5. Now I try to run setup.exe in HPQPDP but an error message came out saying that my computer doesn't have QuickPlay hotkey.
I believe this is the similar problem to Stimey. Someone in this thread mentioned that the Compaq comouter could not install because it is not purchased north America. But it can overcome by creating a regedit to trick the computer to install HPQPDP. I think Stimey mentioned in the thread that I should create a Regedit file using the following codes:
But the downside is it will ruined your hard drive as claimed by a couple of users (somewhere in pg 35-36). Something about SATA error which I have no idea as it is too technical.
I am affraid to go thorugh those installation as it will ruin my hard drive. I am wondering are there any Compaq V3000 Series owners successfully install QuickPlay Direct. I have through 56 pages of this thread and didn't see anyone claim to install HPQPDP successfully.
I would be much appreicated if someone could guide me how to install the HPQPDP. I really want it to work.
Massive thanks to all the contributer.
