Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC
I have purchased a laptop (HP Pavilion DV 6516 tx ). I want to install windows xp in that. May i know wether i can get necessary drivers for installing windows XP. If not tell me a solution. Right now the OS is vista. I have to work on a couple of S/W which are not compatible in vista. Thus i should install windows xp. I request you to give me suggestions regarding drivers for installing XP.
I'm not sure solution #1 is very explanatory, so....
IF you want to install XP on your computer, Windows XP will load most of the drivers you need automatically.
For the drivers that are specific to your HP pavilion
you will be able to download device drivers from HP website
or, request a driver CD
When XP is installed [assuming you or someone can do that]
Go to the 'My Computer' icon [right-click]
If you have any drivers that need to be installed, there should be
a yellow (?) question mark by the name of the hardware
Most devices/hardware will be handled by XP SP2
The default drivers will be loaded automatically
For example, your keyboard:
Above you see the window that opens if I double-click on
the 'Keyboard' icon.
For XP to function, you only have to worry about the ones
with the yellow (?) question mark
Or, if you want to add a specific driver, like a Video or Sound driver, but you don't see a yellow (?) question mark
you can still install/update the driver at the 'driver' tab
[second tab in the picture above]
If you need more specific help I can do that too
