You will need to go to the manufacturers website for each component and download the XP drivers for each one. In other words, if video device is a Radeon Mobility - go to the ATI website and download and install the XP driver for the Radeon Mobility card. Do this for each peripheral you need a driver for. I suggest saving all the driver files and burning them to a CD for safekeeping should you ever need them again.

It is not always advisable to downgrade from Vista to XP, especially on a laptop. The reason being that most of the installed components on the laptop, are specifically chosen for their compatibility with Vista.
However, you can try the following driver, which is more or less a universal basic driver that should work with your machine.

Should that not work, you will have to find the make and model of your sound card and do a Google search for the drivers..

Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions,please feel free to post them here.

P.S. - If you find that the solution/answerI provided led you to, or resulted in a fix, please close the ticket with a FixYa!rating. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.

Thank you for using FIXYA!
