    I need to reformat a netbook for a friend of mine and pop windows 7 on there, but I'm not sure what drivers I need for it (the bluetooth, built in camera etc) or where I can even find them.

    Here's what I know about it:

    Brand: Compaq
    Model: Compaq mini (don't know model #)


    Specs:

    CPU: intel atom N230 @ 1.60GHz
    RAM: 1GB DDR2 @ 533MHz 4-4-4-12
    HDD: 60GB
    GPU: intel i945
    Chipset: i945GSE
    Mobo: HP 361A

    Any ideas?

    Thanks guys :cool:

    Are you 100% that the HDD is 60gb?

    This is a fun game! :roll:

    A picture would be awesome. Many guesses but I can't be 100%.

    Have you tried to use Everest for any clues?

    No stickers for the model on the bottom? (its irrelevant anyway; I'm assuming you looked there :D )

    What is the screen size? What was the version of windows that came installed on it (Version, bit, Service pack; please)

    In my experience windows 7 should get everything up and running by default drivers. Usually what I lack when I get in is the wireless driver.

    When I put Win7 on my netbook the only driver it needed for me to DL myself was the webcam I think.
