Try doing windows update. Look for the +Hardware tab when you go to the update website. That usually gets 99% of the drivers.

web site, and get it, thaehard why , but HP still show it in link above.
or LAST, re-install XP

the same with the keyboard dead buttons. (missing HP drivers again) THOSE BUTTONS ARE HP AND NO ONE ELSE'S.
that means fore example DELL drivers are useless..
the HP driver is missing get it at ap or , (buy the HP media kit?)

I have just bought a second hand compaq nc 4010 i have read that i can make it wireless using a pcmcia wifi card how do i install it as i have no disc drive on the nc4010?thank you

pcmcia is a card slightly smaller than the antique floppy disc that usually fits in a slot on the side of your laptop your model does have this slot, but personally I would go for a usb hsdpa modem as this provides faster broadband internet.
good luck

what operating system did you replace XP 32bit, XP 64bit? Was the version of Vista you used the 32bit or the 64bit. You may need to go to HP.Com and look for replacement drivers for the DVD. You can also use the windows update to obtain correct drivers for the DVD if they have tested them already. Another option is to go to the manufacturer of the DVD device and see what they list for the driver. Just remember there is a big differance between the 32bit and 64bit drivers. Read on the Vista system you installed and see what level was installed in your system. Regards, rcampsr
