    The USA link wasn't working so tried the UK link:
    this one:
    nothing there so clicked here:

    Looks like they only have Vista drivers for that model.

    One person was able to download the drivers for another similar model, and get them to work:

    Here is a very good thread you should read to solve the problem:
    Look at post #10, it's very very detailed.
    For the future, please pay attention to what you buy and how you use it. As days go by, computer integrators stop offering support for XP, so the only way to go is to go straight to manufacturer sites.
    Problem is that you need to know exactly what you have in your machine, which might require to check the chipset on each component (this is a problem because you might void the warraty by opening the machine) or get a very good hardware inventory software (one that reads device information, not windows registry :P).
    So, buy wise to avoid problems later. If you don't want to use Vista, ask the supplier to provide you with XP drivers. If he can't, better buy another machine or check another supplier.

    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...

    When installing XP Pro on a PC that was originally a Vista operating system nothing is fully complete. You have to get drivers from different sites. All in all the guys did what I needed and that was to get the PC loaded with no errors in device manager.
    Thanks to all,
