Sounds like you'll need to go and get the drivers from HP support pages, however I've noticed a lot of people with this model with same issues suggesting XP support on HP doesnt have the XP drivers for certain laptops that are sold as Vista ones.

I don't honestly know why everyone deletes Vista, it is not the hardware hog people are told, and it's networking features are mile better as is the driver support and stability. Personally I'd put Vista back on if thats what it came with, and simply apply the performance tweaks that are plentyful on google.

If you really must have nasty OLD XP, then you may well run into issues as microsoft has abandoned XP for updates etc as of last month, all XP will get now is security patches no more service packs etc.
