Need some assitance finding these drivers, HP wants me to send in my laptop but I know one of you can fix it!

I reinstalled vista home premium on my HP using a dell install disc.  I'm missing a few drivers and could really use some help finding them as HP will only help me if I send in my notebook.  I don't have time for that!  They just want my money and I know someone out there can point me in the right direction.

It is entirely possible that dell has stripped some standard drivers out of the vista install. I would download and install every driver off the page starting with the most obvious ones.

I've already installed the chipset drivers as well as installed all of the drivers from the HP page.  Yet it still shows them as other devices with the yellow exclamation point...

10DE refers to NVIDIA, the other codes are unknown
i'm starting to think that your problem comes from here :

Yes the problem is that I have installed with a DELL install disc.  However I do believe that the drivers are out there.  I've installed the chipset drivers 3 times and still get the unkown devices.  I've already installed the link posted above for the ethernet driver and only the wireless adapter is working not the ethernet controller.  I'm thinking I should just downgrade to XP...again.

Well it appears that willcomp had the correct solution!  Even though I installed them 3 times before, downloading and reinstalling the chipset drivers for a fourth time has solved my problem!  Perhaps they weren't complete downloads before or they were installed in the wrong order.  Thank you so much for all of your help!

i mean that the dell install disk ties your system to certain hardware; can you try another XP disk ?

Since others can't see grading comments --- He downloaded and installed chipset drivers --> problem fixed!
