Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
Got an HP Pavilion a6440a series Desktop with no back up discs and no vista discs. Basically I got it cheap and there was no operating system on the hard drive. Had a Windows XP full install disc with SP2 so installed it. Windows XP up and running. Problem is I have no drivers and the drivers on HP site want you to have vista so won't install with XP. Therefor I got no internet connection on the new PC and no sound and video in VGA mode. I transferred all my settings from my existing PC. What I see is I am using an Iconnect Modem 622 modem to which I have the install disc. When setting up the modem it fails to detect the yellow ethernet cable which I know works because I am using it on this old computer. The modem itself was supplied to me by Primus not more than 6 months ago so is fairly new. I'd like to be able to get an internet connection on the new computer, can you give me any drivers to help it detect the ethernet cable and the internet. Also I have no sound drivers at all so no codecs are installed in the audio section of the control panel. I am using Logitech R-20 speakers and subwooofer which I know work as I have tested them ( have no disc for that either). Then I have no driver for the new sound card Nvdia because the driver on the HP web site won't work with windows XP. I'm spending to much time trying to get the new computer and operating system up and running. Any help with drivers or quick solutions to get the new computer up and on the net plus with sound and video would be great appreciated.

Please find the model number of the motherboard and the chipset. Once you know this, you can easily find the required chipset drivers by doing a Google. Also, if there are any additional cards, you can google an XP driver for that particular model. If you have difficulty with any particular driver, please post back with the make and model, and i will be happy to find the drivers for you online, if need be.
The easiest option, of course, would be as Ginko suggested, and that is upgrade to Vista, as the system was really designed with Vista in mind..
