Before you start, make sure you have the recovery DVD's or CD's so you can restore your system back to the factory state. Most PC's today don't come with installation media, but they usually have a utility included so you can make a set of such media yourself. It is very important to do this, as you may want to sell the PC at a later time, and the new owner will want it with the same software as it was originally delivered with.

Once you have made your recovery media, run SIW and print it's results, or save them as files. With that it'll be easier to find drivers from non HP sites if something doesn't work after the XP installation. Only after having done that install XP and get your drivers from the links posted above.

if you have problems installing a fresh copy look in the bios for native boot option.  turn it off.  Hp and compaq use this feature to lock the os in place.

But no webcam driver, I'm afraid.

I think you are out of luck.

Thanks guys and gals, I think this may be a bust.  Some of the information was helpful, some not.  Looks like I may have to do this one piece of hardware at a time.
