Re: I have the same computer and want to do the same
It is a bit unfair and unrealistic to expect Microsoft to supply all the various device drivers from all the manufacturers in the world.
If your laptop is a Toshiba then :- You can download any/all the Windows XP device drivers for your model laptop from the Toshiba WEB site from their download page. Make sure you enter the model of your laptop so you can get the correct drivers. Use this link :- http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/home.jsp

XP Pro does not come with video drivers. So here's how you find them.
1. Go to the Support site for your Brand of computer
2. Using Serial#, Model# or Service Tag# or a combination of those (whatever the particular computer maker requests) you locate the site for Drivers and Downloads and make sure you've checked or chosen XP as your Operating System.
3. Go down their list of Drivers till you find the video driver for your computer.
4. Download that file to your Desktop using the SAVE feature of the download window.
5. Double click on the file on your desktop and follow the prompts as XP Pro installs the video driver.
You need to download the drivers for your particular hardware. Go to gateway's web site, look in the support section and in particular under downloads/drivers (or perhaps software). There will be a facility of entering your machine's model number and operating system to download the correct drivers. if you have difficulty finding them, then re-post here listing your computer's model number for assistance.
If you find this solution to be helpful, then please take a moment to rate this post. - Thanks.
This is the Canadian site for driver downloads but it seems to work better than it's .com equivalent but you just type in your model number, 2575 and it will bring you to a list of downloads, you want the setup and driver downloads.
This should get you off the ground, if you're still having trouble with it, let me know!
Hope this helps!
With hundreds of operating system installs under my belt, I have yet to encounter a modern computer (under ten years old) that I couldn't install XP with sp2 onto. Is there any reason why you are concerned? As long as you have enough hard drive space and enough ram you should be fine. What you must remember is that you need to install the Sony drivers for your computer after the install of XP. Sony has a great support site, and if you do not have them on disk, they are easy to download from their site. They even have a tool that will scan your computer and provide you with a list of the drivers you need for your particular model. Just go to this page (copy the link into your browser's address bar if this link isn't active): http://esupport.sony.com/perl/select-system.pl?DIRECTOR=DRIVER&SR=nav:service_support:electronics:drivers_software:esup&ref=http%3A//www.sony.com/index.php
Just enter the model number and get yoru drivers. I would do this before you do your fresh install of XP. Of course, you will need to save the drivers on something other than your hard drive. It sounds like an obvious thing to do, but I just want to be thorough. OK then. Take care.
Your computer must have come with Windows Vista installed. You will have a very difficult time locating drivers for that computer. Since HP doesn't list them another thing you can try is to go to the manufacturer's site of each component that require drivers. You can put in your service number on the HP site and perhaps there is a list that came with your particular computer. If you can't find the drivers you need, you are back to VISTA. (and I know how you feel)
copy and paste the above address into search bar press enter when on the site scroll down list for your particular model which will be on bottom of case on small label have checked a few out and they listed driver for xp
