  1. XP driver will be needed for the network adapter.
  2. If I download a driver from a free downloading site such as cnet download.com there are so many to choose from should I get the same one I have on my puter? and Thank You so much for your help. do you know what the 1394 number is on the network driver in the device manager. Thanks again.
  3. Go to the computer or MB online product page and download the XP system drivers and install them. List the system specs.
  4. I dont mean to sound like a complete illiterate but what is an MB online product page. I went to the hp website but they dont have drivers for an xp os.
  5. List your computer's specfications. List the motherbaord, CPU, Video card, PSU etc. Or. Please give us the Computers model number if it is a factory built machine.

    A motherboard or prebuilt system will have an online product page decicated specifically for the user of the product. The system drivers like ethernet, etc will be listed there for download. It's an online user support page for people like you who own the product. And what product is that?

    This statement says, "I have a computer with Vista installed. I installed XP. Some of the hardware doesn't work."

    My question is what computer are you referring to? If I knew the Model or the MB in question, perhaps I could direct you the online product page driver download page.
  7. hp pavillion slimline s3700y. Im sorry I thought I siad that in my first post.
  8. The HP online product page does not provide Windows XP drivers for your system. You should have check that before uninstalling Vista and installing XP on a system
    with no XP driver support.
