Hello and welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums.

On the base of your laptop is a printed label with the Service Tag reference. Go to or to your country's local Dell website and under Support and Drivers, input that reference. You'll then see a page of the drivers for the equipment installed in your specific laptop and that's the safest way to find them. The files you download will be seven or eight digit filenames starting with R and followed by a strong of numbers. It's an executable file so just click ion it and let it do it's stuff. Restart the computer after each installation and they should work properly.

If Dell doesn't offer XP drivers for your model, you should have left the original system on it. Post back for more suggestions if that is the case.
