Downgrading to XP I take it? A Microsoft/Windows update should pick up the device if you manually initiate the update and choose "Custom" for type of update. You will see Hardware and Software updates in addition to the Critical/Security updates that are automatically installed and XP SP2 should/could pick up the device in question. You'll be provided the chance to add these additional updates before reviewing and installing them.
Good luck.

Open Device Manager from Control Panel and check there are no yellow exclamation marks on any drivers. If there are then you need a new driver.


You need to goto the manufacturers website, find their support section and there should be a list of drivers for your specific machine. Installing these should resolve your problem. I have a list of links to most manufacturers drivers on my website.
Hope this helps,

Downgraded Vista to XP from Presario c700


A lot of times, when downgrading from factory installed operating systems, you run into driver issues because they arent written for any other operating system than what they offer. My best recommendation is to google the component name and desired operating system into google (like AC97 xp driver or ATI Radeon 1300m xp driver). This will take you to a lot of 3rd party sites that have drivers to work for those specific devices. Same thing happened to me with my dell xps 1530. Came with vista, but i wanted xp. Had to scour the dell site to find drivers, but eventually found them. Once you find them, burn them to a disk for later reference.

I also upgraded a new Compaq C751NR from Vista to XP, and the last yellow tag in device manager was-acpiHPQ0006

I used the driver from ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp38001-38500/sp38171.exe

and used the 'setup.exe' in the folder. Worked perfectly.
