XP drivers for HP Pavillion dv7-1157cl

  1. I have a friend who would like his laptop (currently with Vista) reloaded with XP. I have been unable to find XP drivers for this laptop. If anyone knows of any, I would appreciate the help.

    Thanks

    Try updating XP to Service Pack 3, and see if the drivers correct themselves. I am going to do the opposite to an older HP laptop soon. Going from XP to Vista Home Premium SP1

    Only problem is they only have 2 XP drivers, wireless and quick launch buttons. I was trying to find video, chipset, network, etc.

    Please contact HP on my above link
    Those drivers should have been picked up by Windows (if not listed at HP, as they aren't)
    Explain through live chat with HP that Windows cannot find the other drivers

    Please also reply back here on what they said, ie links they provided
