HP S3123W Vista to XP Pro Drivers

Posted on 2007-10-03
Last Modified: 2008-01-09
Our small private school had a donation of a new HP S3123W.  The computer had Vista Premium Home installed on it so we could not put in on our domain.  All of the other computers on our domain run on XP Pro so I reformatted the hard drive and installed XP Pro not considering that I would not be able to find xp drivers for this computer.  I know that the ethernet port, usb drives, and the sound will not work and HP does not show any XP drivers for this computer.  The device manager shows the following ?Other PCI Bridge Device ?PCI Device ?PCI Simple Communications Controller, ?SM Bus Controller ?USB Controller.  Can anyone help me find the correct drivers for these or otherwise help me?  The Motherboard Specification table for this computer is linked here
Thanks in advance for your time.

    One possible way would be to look at System Information (msinfo32) and check out the hardware's PNP Device ID's - then you can use the vendor id's to match to manufacturer's - then take a look at their websites for help.
    Another idea is to have a search around on

    The chipset of this pc - Nvidia 6150 is one reserved for third-party manufacturers. If they can't provide you with an XP driver - then your PC will be supremely unstable - i.e. SM Bus Controller etc.
