You are going to have to be more specific. We need to know what kind of drivers you are looking for. Most of the time they can be downloaded from the manufacturers support site. Unfortunately and i think this is a big downfall of the computer industry i cannot find updates from the man. Website so im not sure you will be able to install xp. Nice isn't it :-)

Here is the link so you can see what i was talking about.
