I need to replace drivers on a 4520s laptop.. I work for a school district and we are still using XP Pro.. when I imaged the laptop I lost several drivers.. got some back still missing 5. I have th ID numbers.. can someone help me find the appropriate drivers? I have gone to web site and downloaded several drivers which do not work.. help!

Please click on each missing device in the device manager. Then click on the details tab.
Post the top string of characters you see for each missing device.
Those should ID the type and model of the uninstalled hardware and I will send you the links to the XP drivers for them.

First install the chipset driver and reboot.
Then install the Intel graphics driver (PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_0046).
This should be the audio driver: (HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_8086&DEV_2804)
If you have audio, then it may be the HD audio modem driver that is missing...
This driver should install the ACPI\HPQ0004:
This should be the driver for the PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_3B64
The WD SES DEvice USB Device appears to be an external hard drive you have connected?
Please read this link below. You won't find drivers for that device on HP's support and driver page.

They all work for me with no problem. These drivers are all on your notebook's support and driver page.
What I will do is copy and paste the titles of the drivers, and you can go to your notebook's support and driver page and find them.
If you can't get to your notebook's support and driver page, I suggest there is some kind of browser issue on your end.
Intel Chipset Installation Utility
Intel High-Definition (HD) Graphics Driver with Turbo Boost Technology
IDT High-Definition (HD) Audio Driver
If you have audio, then it is probably the modem driver...
LSI High-Definition Audio (HDA) Modem Driver for Microsoft Windows
HP 3D DriveGuard for Microsoft Windows XP
Intel Management Engine Components Driver
As I posted above, the The WD SES DEvice USB Device is not part of your notebook's missing drivers. Google WD SES DEvice USB Device, and you will find some references to it.

I'm sorry, I neglected to post the info for that yesterday.
You need this driver for your wireless card:
