This system uses an nVidia MCP61 chipset and the nVidia site has the drivers for it. I needed to download the motherboard set to get the ethernet adapter to work. After I installed the motherboard set, Windows update was able to locate and install the rest of the drivers needed for XP on this beast.

    Thanks so much. I used a usb thumb drive and got the nvidia drivers from another pc and then I ran it on the hp. I was able to get onto the internet and then continue ot get the windows updates.

HP Pavilion a705w PC Desktop\Ethernet Controller driver


obtain the driver from cd/dvd that was included as you purchased your desktop and try to check if the driver supports with the operating system you are using now. for example the driver available in your cd/dvd is only for windows xp and your operating system you are using now is windows vista of course driver not installed. try to download from internet the driver that are suite to your unit model and current operating system this can fixed your problem or else downgrade your os tha can support the driver that are available from your cd/dvd.

Hp pavilion a6300f downgrade to xp where can i download the drivers


You have to find the XP drivers for each individual component since HP doesn't want you to downgrade to XP. Your specs can be found at:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01287561&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=3644689#

The chipset drivers can be found here:
http://driverscollection.com/?H=GeForce 7100 / NVIDIA nForce 630i&By=NVidia&SS=Windows XP
I can't get that link to copy over, so typ everything from http until =Windows XP in your address bar.
The HP site doesn't seem to be component-specific on any others, but If you know what Win XP is trying to install, but can't find the drivers for, google those, and a few more dowloads later you should be golden.

is your keyboard usb? If so it may be that your keyboard is not recognised until windows boots, in which case plug in an old ps/2 type keyboard and see if you can change the options then

Sorry to inform you but you cant downgrade from vista to xp on this model I have found most systems that are designed to run vista lose several drivers when downgraded to xp.

the only solution that will restore drivers would be to reload vista by purchasing an upgrade version of vista (this allows an upgrade from xp to vista and will restore drivers only catch is your xp operating system must be xp home with sp2(service pack 2).

When you removed vista from your machine you actually downgraded by replacing the vista operating system with XP.
