You bought it today and it has XP? Was it a refurb? You're going to run into this issue with about every peripheral you add. I'd ask the retailer why XP, can they install 7 or 8, or just buy 7 or 8 and save yourself a ton of headaches.

No way did this come new with XP, they all come with W8 as standard, smells like a dodgy deal by retailer selling your a refurbished or returned product and most likely the XP licence could be illegal. Take it back !!

ohh, sorry I didn't mention it. I don't like Windows 7 and Windows 8, so I installed XP myself. Originally there was linux on it.

Easiest way, reinstall Windows 8 and then go through the device manager for all your major components like wifi/lan, video card, memory card reader and the use google to find the XP driver.

You can do the same from within Linux by looking in the hardware manager.

If you really like XP that much you'll save a lot time just running it as a VM within 7 or 8.

And, why do you like XP more than 7? I can understand different opinions about 8 but 7 is just basically a better XP.

There are many reasons why XP is better in my opinion, but one of the biggest is that this laptop has only one memory slot and it contains 2GB DDR3 RAM, and about 600MB of it is used on graphic card, so there is only about 1.4GB left for operating system and all applications. This is really stupid to use Windows 8 or 7 on system with such small amount of RAM. And that's why we can also forget about Virtual Machine...

In the same time 2GB is perfect size for XP. It runs fast and smooth if all drivers are okay.

Oh, ok. I disagree, but too each their own. 4GB DDR3 SoDimms are <$40 BTW. I put 8 on a netbook I gave to my niece with an Atom single core & 2GB of ram. 8 was just as fast or faster than XP.

Windows 7 drivers are far better than XP and will give a performance boost.

If Windows 8 has drivers, your almost guaranteed to find Windows 7 drivers, a lot of Win8 drivers are already Win7 compatible.

I don't believe das_stig was suggesting using the 7 drivers in XP. It was, 7 drivers used by 7 are superior therefore you will experience increased performance over XP.

SoWhat - Like I said previously, no judgement just curiosity. What aspects of XP vs 7/8 are superior in your opinion?

The way 7/8 handles file/memory requests are superior, so that alone will give a performance boost.

If you have nothing constructive to offer, then may I suggest you tape your mouth shut and talk out out of your backside, it will be more productive !

SoWhat - I installed windows XP on my Packard Bell EN TE69BM (I know yours is TE69KB but read on) and most drivers from the Packard Bell website did not work but I went to the intel.com & realtek.com and downloaded needed drivers so you can do the same,
go to packardbell.com,
go to download centre,
enter your notebooks full name,
download needed drivers for pb en te69kb,
try installing all drivers
AND
download the drivers that did not work from eg: amd (http://www.amd.com/en-us) & realtek(http://www.realtek.com.tw)
easy as that! Good Luck with installing your drivers! :)
