    Thanks! I have already gotten a remedy for my laptop. I installed Vista instead. It worked! I just need to familiarize myself with Vista. It seems that everything's moving in Vista.

First of all, this Notebook is installed with SATA Hard Drive and the drivers for the SATA Hard Drive will not be available with retail versions of Windows XP by default.
I recommend you to try using different OEM versions of XP to install in your Notebook which should work.
Since the Notebook is preinstalled with Windows Vista, the XP Drivers for this Notebook are not directly available from HP.
I had searched some for you which should work.
Download the Drivers one after the other and save them with the name along with the Softpaq Number like the example given below :
Microsoft UAA_33566.exe
So that it will be easier for you to save them and identify.
Save the drivers in one location in the Notebook and double click them once the download is completed.
Make sure that you install the Microsoft UAA Drivers before installing the Audio or Modem Drivers.
Make sure that you install them in the same order I had provided them below :
You need to download the Intel Chipset Drivers for your Notebook from the link below :
http://downloadmirror.intel.com/16023/a08/infinst_autol.exe


Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture(UAA) drivers for High Definition audio :
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp33501-34000/sp33566.exe

Conexant High Definition(HD) audio :
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp34001-34500/sp34200.exe

As the Notebook is installed with Intel graphic Card, you need to download the Drivers for the same from the link below :
http://downloadmirror.intel.com/16944/a08/win2k_xp14363.exe


Download the Ricoh 5-in-one Card Reader Driver from the link below :
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp37501-38000/sp37712.exe


Download Intel PRO/Wireless Drivers from the below weblink:
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp34001-34500/sp34489.exe

As I am not sure whether your Notebook is installed with Intel or Realtek Ethernet card, I am providing both the drivers:
Intel Ethernet Drivers :
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp33501-34000/sp33574.exe
Realtek Ethernet Drivers :
http://drivers.softpedia.com/progDownload/Realtek-RTLRTLRTLRTL-Driver--WHQL-Download-33009.html

You can also try downloading the Marvel Youcon Ethernet Drivers if any of the above provided drivers did not work :
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib/software10/COL24713/gs-63707-1/Marvell_Yukon_LAN_Driver_6.36.0.0.exe


Downlaod Conexant HDAUDIO Soft Data Fax Modem drivers from the below weblink :
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp33501-34000/sp33890.exe

Download the HP Quick Launch Buttons drives from the below weblink:
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp38501-39000/sp38688.exe

Download the HP Pavilion Webcam Driver from the below weblink:
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp33501-34000/sp33544.exe

Download the Alps Touchpad driver from the below weblink:
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp33501-34000/sp33751.exe

Finger Print Reader Driver :
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp32501-33000/sp32869.exe

Hope these helps...

I had a similar problem and I had to "Delete Volume" when in DIsk Management. I then had a choice to "Create Simple Volume" which I did, and then a wizard created the correct partitions and assigned a drive letter to my external drive. Everything was them OK.

Burning movies on the computer , playback fine on two computeers , will not play on ONN portable player used DVD-R


Burning dvd\'s is always a crapshoot when you have multiple machines. Computer drives are more tolerant on playback - the problem lies with your other, independent playback units. That is why in your main viewing area it is important that you have a few units so that if disk does not play in one machine, it will play on another. Has to do with the individual differences and calibrations of the machines involved. Store bought dvd\'s have less problems because their laser reflectivity is always higher than disks you burn, and therefore, easier to read properly. Price of the unit has no reflection on ability to properly read the disk. Sometimes and often, a cheaper machine will work better with copies - you never know.
