samo4fun, Thank you for the post but these are not the drivers I am looking for...
What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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:


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:


These hardware diagnostics are free:

If you have problems downloading, use the System Indformation proceedure in my post above to find out the manufacturer of the driverless chips...

The Hp site contains virtually no driver downloads for XP.

You will have to post the Device ID as outlined above. "...a Vendor number and a Device number (VEN. . . . DEV. . . .)
