    (It worked for me)

    to all compaq v3617tu users, here's what worked for me:

    1. download this SATA AHCI controller from HP:

    2. run the installer. you should see the inf files extracted under c:swsetupsp37005files

    3. follow the instructions:

    4. in step 7, go to c:swsetupsp37005files

    5. now the IMPORTANT part, in step 8, choose: "Intel(R) 82801HEM/HBM SATA AHCI Controller (Mobile ICH8M-E/M)"

    6. follow the rest of the instructions.

    One of the worst electronic product in the universe. My issue didn't resolve yet Compaq Presatio 3225 AU. No display. Boot from main power only. Bad luck.

    Files are supported only by the RAR archive format…
    Download all these splited files in the same folder…
    when ever you extract any one of these…
    all the files belonging to that will be extracted…
    automatically…!!! and write it in to cd…
    Good luck.
