You'll need to download the files to the computer your accessing this forum with and then copy them across to your laptop.

When you link to drivers, it's helpful to check that what you're offering matches what's needed. Other than various software solutions, both the HP pages you linked provided *only* Wireless drivers -- no Chipset, Audio, Video or Ethernet. This is typical when the manufacturer doesn't offer support for XP on the device in question. For a successful downgrade, the chipset, audio, video, and ethernet are required.

You need to identify the driverless chips:
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/

Good luck!!!

Audio is Conexant High-Definition Audio

You'll need all of these and they need to be installed in the order listed. Also, you should install these before you install the modem:

Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) Bus Driver for High Definition Audio (sp31994)

If these devices are showing up in Device Manager, please try phototropic's suggestion and list the Device Instance Ids for them.

souseranCommented:
Sorry. I copied the same link twice. Install this one first:

Then install the one from my link above.

It worked for the UAA Modem. now just  the High Def audio it's missing.
I should try one of the earlier drivers like sp 32823.exe or sp 34204??
0
 
souseranCommented:
Since the 34204 went without problems try this one again first.

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp34001-34500/sp34204.exe

If it fails, try the other one.

Conexant High-Definition Audio

Try one of these:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=ob-45570-1&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=1842155

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/genericSoftwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=ob-40639-1&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&dlc=en&lang=en

If neither of those work, some have had luck with this non-HP driver:

http://cdgenp01.csd.toshiba.com/content/support/downloads/conexant_audio_os2006203a.exe

You'll need to make a change to the .INF file to include this:

[Conexant]
%HdAudioFunctionDriver.Waikiki5047.DeviceDesc% = HdAudModel,HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_14F1&DEV_5047&SUBSYS_1179FF31

You said, "I'm wondering,could be the problem the huge amount of drivers what I allready instaled,and they getting incompatible,with each other.!"

YES! I've seen cases where the very first driver was correct, but because of all the other trials, it wasn't seen as right until the system was wiped, the OS reinstalled and the drivers reinstalled in the proper order. I'm beginning to think that's exactly what's happening here.

In its Critical Driver Installation Order document, Intel stresses that this sequence be followed:
 
1       Fresh Operating System Installation
2       Latest Service Pack or Patch
3       IntelĀ® Chipset Software Installation Utility (INF Utility)
4       All other device drivers

This document goes further:

Proper Driver Installation Order

http://www.geocities.com/extremetech_linksmaster/driverorder.htm

All that to say that if you haven't followed this order, you may continue to have problems installing even the correct driver, and need to start again with a drive wipe and fresh install of the OS.
