Make a fresh install with a cd containing at least sp2.

Then try updating drivers via windows update online and download the missing drivers from here:

If XP is already installed, 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:

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...

Is it actually a "dv6500" or is it part of that series; but its real, actual model number is something like "dv6604nr" or "dv6605us" or something like that?  What is its true and actual model number?

And are you saying that it came with Vista pre-installed?  If so, did it come with the XP downgrade option (or was said option ever available for it)?  And, if so, are you using that option method as the means by which you're downgrading to XP?  Or are you simply trying to downgrade it to XP regardless whether the machine was ever really intended to run XP?
