If you are looking for the XP drivers, then I am sorry You will have to find out who made the devices you need, and go to there site and hope they have XP drivers.

Compaq/HP only supports Vista for this model.  They dont prefer to downgrade to XP, so they have not provided any drivers for the same.

Chipset and video drivers:
chipset ----- http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&ProductID=2842&DwnldID=16023&strOSs=44&OSFullName=Windows*%20XP%20Professional&lang=eng
video ----- http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&ProductID=2842&DwnldID=16944&strOSs=44&OSFullName=Windows*%20XP%20Professional&lang=eng

I'll check back later and see if you need additional drivers. You will need the MS UAA drivers and Realtek audio codec for sound. Realtek NIC is listed on mobo specs.

I recommend you use SIW rather than Everest Home which was discontinued 3 years ago and is out of date.   http://www.gtopala.com/

Try this:
Start-Programs-Accessories-System Tools-System Information. Click on "components" and highlight "problem devices". Any hardware device with a driver problem will be listed here. Make a note of the PNP Device ID line of the entry. It will contain a Vendor number and a Device number (VEN. . . . DEV. . . .)
both four digits long.
Look up those numbers here:

http://www.pcidatabase.com/index.php

This will tell you the manufacturer and the chip number.  First try the manufacturer's website.  If no joy there, try a driver database like Driverguide:

http://www.driverguide.com/

If Everest didn't work for you, try one of these:

Belarc:
http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html
Siw:
http://www.gtopala.com/siw-download.html
If you have problems downloading, use the System Indformation proceedure in my post above to find out the manufacturer of the driverless chips...
