Usually it is possible to go back to windows xp without too many troubles, as majority of drivers are still distributed for XP as well.
You need to ensure that drivers for your devices are available for XP.
You also need to order a copy of windows XP licence and disk from your retailer, it should be around $ 100.

My God can someone HELP me I need a driver that will support the (video 208pci-128twin) for windows 7

This graphics card is too old. It is not supported by Microsoft and Nvidia for use on Vista or Windows 7. You will only find Linux, Windows 9x, XP and Server 2003 drivers for it.

Help required installing OS (Changing OS ) myself on my HP dv9507

There are two procedures, [1]Reformat your hard disk and start a clean installation (this is the easiest thing to do, however not the most convinient) and [2] Using a genuine retail version [NOT a recovery disk] you could do some kind of downgrade [not as easy as it sounds]
I'll go back to solution number 1 (reformating the hard disk). Idearly, you'll want to back up your vista installation just in case things get messed up, then secondly you'll want to create a backup of all your files [dont worry about application data, you'll have to reinstall it all anyway]. After you're done, Insert your Windows XP disk, [it should ask you to press a key to boot from CD, if not you'll have to go into your BIOS and change the boot order], when you're into the setup, the guidelines are pretty simple, you'll have to run one of the formatting options in order to install XP [remember that formatting will erase everything from your hard disk, So I hope you did aBACK UP of all your DATA]...
As for procedure 2, Installing XP without reformating, well, let me know if you're up for the procedure and if you have an XP recovery disc

Vista to xp so want drivers for xp for cq-45 106au

how many drivers you need really depends what hardware is included on your XP install disc. The link to your laptop's drivers is here:〈=en&
you may need to download all the drivers in XP section.
The safest way to approach this is to change the HDD with a spare one to test if you have any. From the specs on hp site, it's safe to skip this and go ahead to reformat the laptop and install XP. Good luck!

Ethernet controller driver on vgn-cr116e running xp

if your system is new and it was made for vista your probably not going to get it to work
try the download again if still does'nt work then i'm sorry to tell you but vista will need to be installed.There are ways around it but your ethernet will not work properly so if you really want xp you'll need to have the ethernet changed and possibly other things depending on the pc
it would'nt be worth it for you to change things in your system to be compatible with xp
please don't forget to rate me

I'll give a whack at this problem. I think the previous person meant blank drive NOT black drive (that doesn't make sense to me).
I would follow the previous persons in going to BIOS and making sure the first boot device is CDROM. My question to you is whether you've already done this or whether you need assistance with this process. If so, please tell me what computer model you have.

Free drivers for compaq presario SG3133IL (OS :win xp)

If you've gone back from Vista to XP, you might have a little problem. Laptops going from Vista to XP usually work about 50% of the time (due to driver issues). Desktops, I'd say probably about 80% of the time. I have the web address for drivers for your computer, but it only shows they're for Vista. You can still try though. Click here. Hope this helps!

Drivers for use with Vista 64bit

Thank God that I don't have Vista! Everyone I know who has it has had it taken out and XP put back on. Vista has an agenda all of its own. I know a computer repair man who has at least six customers a day who want it taken out! It may be an idea to do the same. I have never had any problems with XP. It's not really an answer, but maybe you should try it? John.

How to install XP in toshiba Satellite L45-S7423 laptop

You cannot uninstall Windows Vista, but you can reinstall your previous operating system, which then replaces Windows Vista. To reinstall your old operating system, you must have the original installation disc. Back up your programs and files, insert the installation disc into your computer, and then reinstall the old operating system. To regain the hard disk space used by Windows Vista, reformat the disk during the reinstallation process. After reinstalling your previous operating system, reinstall your programs and files.
