Try going back to vista. I know your probably one of those die hard love xp hate vista people, but vista has gotten a lot better. it looks like your laptop was made for vista and sorry to say it but i doubt that a lot of your hardware is supported by xp. and hp/Compaq's are actually pretty decent while i cannot say that i have experience with your notebook i have had a pretty decent experience with hp/compaq in general. but overall it sounds like your notebook is fairly new and microsoft mandated that vista be on all new comps. so hp probably didn't see a need to put out drivers for xp seeing as how it was meant for vista anyways.

Changing OS from windows vista to xp


You can install xp on a vista laptop, you will need an xp install cd and you will need to backup your data (it will be erased in the downgrade process). As for the drivers, go to your laptops manufactures site. They will have a support section for your laptop model where you can see if there are drivers for xp. If you have the hardware that will support windows 7, I would go with that. Xp is slow and no longer supported by Microsoft as of April 2014, which poses a security risk. Windows 7 will be supported for a while and is faster and more stable than xp or vista.

Downgraded Vista to XP from Presario c700


A lot of times, when downgrading from factory installed operating systems, you run into driver issues because they arent written for any other operating system than what they offer. My best recommendation is to google the component name and desired operating system into google (like AC97 xp driver or ATI Radeon 1300m xp driver). This will take you to a lot of 3rd party sites that have drivers to work for those specific devices. Same thing happened to me with my dell xps 1530. Came with vista, but i wanted xp. Had to scour the dell site to find drivers, but eventually found them. Once you find them, burn them to a disk for later reference.
