Hello experts,

 I installed Windows XP Pro on this laptop. When getting the drivers on the HP website, none of them works. I have no idea what is going on, after installing nothing happens, no NIC, Chipset, Audio would work. Can you guys help me find this?

Do you have the restore disk for the laptop? What OS did it come with? What is the exact model number and product number?

The user did not have a restore disk. This laptop came with Windows XP Media Center.

Or you can request a restore disc from HP. They will probably charge though.

Flashing the BIOS will do nothing except maybe offer you more BIOS options.  That won't solve your driver issue.
