Chipset and video drivers:

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I recommend you use SIW rather than Everest Home which was discontinued 3 years ago and is out of date.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

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.

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...
