Hi microwin95,

When I check the Manufacturer's website:

(http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?os=2093&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&sw_lang=&product=3866411#N259)

This website shows that Compaq Presario CQ50-209WM Notebook PC has Intel Chipset ICH9m.

Locate and download the SATA Controller driver by using a search engine to find a file named "f6flpy3286.zip". You can check below mentioned link for more details:

Please revert for clarification.
