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.

    XP drivers are on the installation CD. Your system's chipset drivers (system/driver/utilities CD) contain the MB's specific LAN drivers. HP website product page should update your systems's drivers as new versions become available. If you paid for your system by credit card, you certainly have 30 days to return it HP.
  2. The answer to all the troubles is updating the BIOS.

    SP number: sp37643.exe

    And works !
