chipset drivers and these, if they exist for XP, will come from the manufacturer. Sometimes one can get lucky if it's an Intel chipset you can scratch around on their web site and maybe come up them. But, without the chipset drivers, you're not going to get much else to work.
Today I reformatted my C: drive and installed Windows XP (to replace Vista). I had to disable "SATA HDD" in BIOS in order to do this without errors. After a few reboots, I was finally at my new XP desktop. I'm sure this is a common problem, but practically every driver imaginable was missing. I've tried for several hours to hunt down any drivers that will get my audio, video, network, usb ports, and whatever else working again. Because XP is outdated, I can't find even one working driver download.
I'm on a Compaq Presario C714nr Notebook and neither the HP nor Intel websites can help whatsoever. If nothing else, I need to get my USB ports working again so I can at least replace my new, empty C: drive with the full one on my external HD (which probably contains all of the other drivers).
I've been at this for 5 hours now and am going insane. Please help!
