There may not be xp compatible drivers for this product.  I'd recommend upgrade to Windows 7 and not downgrading to xp.

I had the same problem with my hp desktop, it came with vista and no way did I want that crap OS.  I have it running with with xp, though, there were no xp drivers for my sound chipset nor networking adapter.  So, I have no sound and network connectivity through a PCI netowrk card.

With Windows 7, you shouldn't have this problem - it has a robust set of drivers.

tjdabomb: I do not want win 7. I paid for XP.

sharpting: this option is fail because I cannot connect to internet ( no network drivers ) this software uses internet to check for drivers.

What do you mean "you paid for xp??"  This laptop didn't come with xp, so, what you paid for wasn't for this laptop.

This laptop probably has 5.1/7.1 sound, web cam, remote control etc., that you will probably not find xp drivers.

tjdabomb: I paid for retail copy of XP Pro SP3. Its a fully licensed copy with non activated code. Purchasing Win 7 upgrade / full version is not the answer I was looking for. Thanks anyways.

these are the only drivers being offered by hp, maybe google the model of your network adapter for starters and get on the internet with it.  you can then try that tool i posted or google the models of your other devices

You should have considered interoperability before you purchased any software.  Maybe you can return XP and get 7?

Attached is a report; Does this help find the drivers?

Yes, if you download the drivers for the particular motherboard, it "should" contain the drivers for all the devices that reside on the motherboard.

This question should be closed by accepting edbedb:'s answer http:#32965500 with an assist to souseran's answer http:#32988405.

sharpting's answers go to Driver - Keyboard, Mouse and Input Devices which are not necessary for the operation of the laptop, Software - Solutions, and Utility - Tools which is simply a battery check application, not a driver.

The asker specifically requested "video, network, sound, chipset drivers."

The answers referred to by number in this message provide specifically what the asker requested.
