If your laptop is still under warranty, installing WinXP will void the warranty. It's very tricky. I'd suggest getting another PC with Internet connection and search and download drivers as needed for your 1525. Good luck.
It depends a lot of the rest of your hardware acctually, audio card, video card, etc.
Download everest, that software will tell you what hardwre you exactly have, and then you can look for each driver.
To save time, first install windows xp, and then install everest to discover which drivers are missing, if you are lucky only 1 or 2
As you mentioned that you have downgraded to windows xp, did you change the sata operations to ATA mode from AHCI mode in bios before installing XP? If you have done this then try and reinstall webcam driver and also the audio driver. If possible get into device manager to check if all drivers are working fine.
If U want to change ur pc's os to WinXp the go to dell.com and choose Ur country after that go click on the support link or support and driver link then choose ur laptop after that choose the operating combo box to winxp(sp2) and if there is driver's are available or not in most cases Every Dell laptop has xp(sp2) drivers............ Shubham.................
The reason why xp does not see the hard drive durin setup is the ahci option enabled in the bios. you need to change the option to ata. to do that power on the system and tap f2 at the dell logo. in the bios change the stat operations to ata. the option most likely is listed under drivers. you may also have to disble flash cache from the bios. once the option is disabled hit esc and save and exit. boot from the XP cd and run the setup. at the partations screen delete the c drive and partation it according to the size you need for xp and leave the rest for vista. install XP and the drivers from support.dell.com. After XP is ready to use put in the Vista DVD once in XP and install Vista on the unpartationed space left from the c drive.
