Guys i FOUND it. It's the standard intel driver(82562GT)we all tried so far. The O/S doesn't handle the resources it allocates to it correctly and that cannot be changed.So I did a new windows XP installation and removed the ACPI at startup. After that windows handles the NIC correctly. Here is the link http://support.microsoft.com/kb/216251/. You need to choose standard pc.
After that I installed the network card first and it WORKS.

My BIOS was obsolete, HP drivers are ok but would be nice if i didn't have to find that out by my self.
No point of contacting HP support, after you buy it you can hang your self, they don't care.

A BIOS does not become obsolete. Sometimes there may be a problem with one and an update is quickly issued to correct a specific problem, but they don't just become obsolete. Yours may be perfectly fine.
