I have an HP a6112n that I bought a month ago. I hate it!
I emailed HP for an XP recovery disk or a list of drivers to go back but I haven't heard from them.
I give up. I am going to buy another computer with XP. I will wrap this one up and put it away until Microsoft and HP can find a way to make thier customers happy. If they even care?
I am forced to accept my new computer with Vista as just a loss. Good luck to the rest of you.
I know there are many posts on just this subject and I have read and tried to follow suggestions but I am coming up empty on finding drivers for this device through Gateway and searching via Google, etc. Gateway only shows Vista related drivers for the modem, motherboard, sound, touchpad, and video when I look for XP drivers for my device (detailed below). I am not tech savy enough to know if other drivers are compatiable or not. I do have my computer guru coming over at a later date to help with the (clean) installation of XP but I am trying to save some time and money by downloading the drivers that will enable me to load my newly bought Windows XP HE onto this computer. Any suggestions on where (websites, etc.) to find these drivers, what to look for, or anything else of relevance will be very helpfull. The Vista was already installed and did not come with a CD. Thanks!
