    I just got a IBM Think Pad from a friend and they had windows 98, but I need to put a wireless internet card on it but 98 is not compatible they said I need XP or higher. They charge 155 to put it on but I don't have an extra 155 dollars to spend. Can't figure out how to download it to CD from my home computer. Any Suggestions????

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]
you can:
Go to the 'My Computer' icon [right-click]
Choose:

  • 'Properties'
  • Then Choose 'Hardware'
  • Finally, choose 'Device Manager'
Here you will have a list of all your hardware
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

    Alternate *Free Solution

    There is another solution you may consider if you only need XP
    to run a few applications that are not compatible with Vista

    There is something offered by Microsoft called ' Virtual PC 2007 '

    This will allow you to install a second version of Windows on your
    computer without having to lose Vista

    You will basically be able to run Vista and you can switch to XP
    to use the applications that are not compatible with Vista

    You can download the program for free from Microsoft
    and install it on your Vista system.
    Once you do that, you have options of how much space you want to use, how much memory you need, depending on which OS you want to install
    Here is a shot of the menu so you get an idea:



    Above in the picture Windows XP is being chosen and the default
    DRIVERS will be loaded automatically

Problem for HP Pavilion dv 6000


download utorrent.exe and install it on your machine. then do a google search for the following torrent (actual text to do a google search with):

xp 25,000 drivers + torrent

I am not sure if this is a legal file to download, but it will have all the xp drivers for all computers just about. Furthermore, the download is about 368 MB, so have a high speed internet connection to download it.
