No XP drivers for firewire and audio device in Dell Studio 1537
I recently downgraded my Vista machine to Windows XP Pro. Dell does not support XP on all their Studios, but I was able to find most of the drivers online. There is two that I have been unsucessful: the drivers for the 1394 Net Adapter and one Unknown Device on "Microsoft ACPI-Compliant System" (which I think might be audio related?).

try this first. download the latest webcam driver from the support site. uninstall the old driver then install the latest one. if fails, then download the system bios then install the latest bios to your laptop.
Hi, I was searching for this driver on the Internet and it seems to be your lucky day, here I found the IDT drivers for Audio, http://rapidshare.com/files/190141494/PIDT001.zip for Windows XP for the Studio XPS 1640, now because this computer was designed for Windows Vista, Dell will not be responsible for the use of this driver, nor any future damage that it might cause, not that I've seen the case, but Online forums state that this driver is 100% working with no issues, if you happen to have one, please let me know, the link is a rapidshare download server, just follow the instruction on the free user and go ahead.
P.S. Here are the Dell Drivers for Vista, in case when Windows 7 comes out you want to just do the upgrade option with vista, and it should solve everyones issues. http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=STUDIOXPS16&os=WLH&osl=en&catid=&impid=
you will not be able to put os in the same hdd on a computer.also if vista is installed on one hdd & the other partition is on the same hdd so please try not to install 2 windows on same hdd,its not possible...
You can download the drivers from Dell WEB site, the support download page. Make sure you select your model laptop, better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop. This will open the page where the specific drivers for your model laptop are located. Also make sure you select the Windows XP or Vista version of the driver for your Windows operating system.

For windows xp to be compatabe with laptops or desktops with sata drives you will need a driver that is written to a floppy disk and inserted during the windows install it will prompt you to hit F6 during the install early on for additional drivers.
I looked on dells' site's support page for your laptop and unfortunately they do not support XP for your model. Even if you installed it none of your video, chipset, webcam, or audio would run correclty. you only have vista and 64 bit vista as an option.
Now this isnt to say you cant their is ways to find and make srivers work, but thats a very hard and time consuming process.
