You will find the drivers you need (except for the modem driver) for xp here: http://forums11.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/bizsupport/questionanswer.do?threadId=1226016

There is also a modem driver but I have not looked for it hard enough cause I don't use the modem anymore. I connect to the internet via DSL, however some people still use the modem to connect to the internet or to send and receive faxes on their PC's. Hope this helps.

Most computers that are preloaded with Vista, unfortunately, are not compatable with XP. The only thing I can help you with is to buy a PCI expansion card for your ethernet port and a soundcard for your sound. This should get you going basic and be able to check for drivers for your other hardware at windows update or the factory website.

The best place to get these is either at HP.com or Microsoft.com both have download areas where you can find and download the drivers you need. I'd recommend going to HP first.

Presario f700 drivers


You have to download XP drivers from the manufacturer's website. This normally happens because your harware was designed for the new OS(Vista).

Just go to hp.com and search for the model of your Laptop.

Win vista uninstall


Put your window XP disk into the Disk drive. Start up your computer. When it asks you what Drive you want to install it on select C:\ (where Vista is) Say yes to deleting the current Operating System and follow the instructions from there.

You did say you wanted to Uninstall Vista!

If you mean Dual Boot Vista and XP, then you will need to create a Logical Partition of about 10 Gb to install XP on and when asked where to install select this partition. But note that XP will wipe the Boot sector clean of all other Operating Systems which means that if you want to Dual boot then you will have to reinstall Vista again to get Dual Boot functionality.
