I need XP drivers for the Pavilion a6000 desktop PC. Can't find them anywhere.

I am trying to fix my sister's desktop. I want to downgrade from Vista to XP. I have installed Windows XP but now I need drivers for everything. The machine only says a6000 on it so I don't know what version of the a6000 it is. Where can I get these drivers?

Do you have AMD or Intel processor? If it is AMD use the drivers below>>

 

Nvidia Chipset(install & reboot before other drivers):

I have an intel processor. I tried that same link you posted last night and it said that the computer doesn't have the minimum stuff to run that program, so I guess it is the wrong one. Please help. I am desperate!

1- We need more specifics of machine if Intel and Nvidia Chipset both fail to install. Locating Model Number "Ctr alt s" won't work since you have changed OS_but there should be a label somewhere on the machine.

 

2- What error message did you get with Intel Chipset? DL the Intel Chipset ID Utity HERE copy to flash drive & run on A6000.

 

3- Better still, get HWiNFO32 and run it ,should id most hardware HERE

 

4- Do you have SP2 installed? Most current drivers require SP2.If not get the full dl HERE on another machine and transfer via cd or usb flash drive to the A6000.
