Vostro A860 that I has been changed to Win XP.

by mcscomp12 / May 19, 2009 10:49 AM PDT

Vostro A860 that I has been changed to Win XP. The drivers that came with it are Vista drivers. Can anybody tell me where to get the drivers for; base system device, modem device on Hi Dev Audio bus, usb device, video controller, and vga compatible. These are the only ones that I can not get the correct drivers for them in XP. Any one have them?
