  1. Update your drivers.
  2. That would be my guess update your drivers although I can't see any reason what so ever to ever downgrade to a 10 year old obsolete completely outdated OS as XP. Even Vista would have been better than degrading your laptop by installing XP!

  17. As far as I know you cannot downgrade from vista to xp without a clean install. Can't you just revert back to vista with system restore?

    he was running vista downloaded a pirated copy of 7 then he did a full format and try'd to install win 7 but if failed errors according to him kept coming up then his old man wiped the drive and loaded xp
