I have a Compaq Presario V6000 (RD865AV#ABA) that I can't seem to locate the correct drivers for Windows XP. Can anyone please point me in the right direction. Specifically, I need the NIC, video, and wireless drivers. So far, I have downloaded a bunch of drivers from the HP driver site but none of them are working with this laptop.
