    Justin,

    Just out of curiosity, do you need the XP drivers because you wiped Vista off and you are reloading with XP? The reason I ask is because that is what I was planning on doing with a new HP DV6205. All the research I have done tells me that this thing is a dog with Vista and I already have a copy of XP. If thats what you are doing or you've had to reload XP from scratch, any info would be appreciated! Thanks.

    Andrew,
    Yes I wiped Vista off because it was doggin. I loaded XP on and it runs beautiful. I cant believe they sell this laptop with Vista and 512MB of memory ( It runs like S*ht). Anyway's I was able to find all the drivers after about an hours worth of work. Deathhawk, thanks for your reply but I think i've wrapped this dog up................Andrew, if you need help I can pass along the driver info to you..Let me know.

    Sounds great! I've been doing some more reading on the board and looks like everyone that has made the switch found it to work great. I haven't bought the computer yet (I was out shopping today) but knowing that I can get XP to work, I may just go ahead and get the HP. I found another thread with a lot of info on the drivers, but will let you know if I encounter any problems. Thanks!

    Hey, I loaded up WinXP on my 6205 also, however, I cannot get rid of the SM device error. Also, I cannot get sound on at all. What drivers did you use? I have looked for a while now, and still cannot locate anything. Thanks!

    Hi Nomiq

    Ethernet drivers are Intel Pro/1000 PL Network Connection (from Intel site) for wired,
    Intel Pro/Wireless 3945ABG, (also from Intel site) for...er....wireless (the clue's in the title)

    GeForce 7400 are standard nVidia 'ForceWare' drivers (from nVidia site)

    Audio is Connexant High Definition Audio.

    Hope this helps.

    PS I'd LOVE to get my SM Bus controller working....
