Hi guys,
I have an hp pavillion a6140a and can't find any XP drivers for it!
there are only vista drivers on the hp website! tried google but can't find any? any suggestions? I've tried using a couple of the vista drivers but they fail to install on xp.

Cheers

Not all of the new laptops have XP drivers as MS want you to go to Vista so you might be out of luck

Usually if HP dont supply drivers, not all is lost.

If you look at the Vista drivers they tell you what they are, Audio = Realtek, Graphic's = Intel etc, so go to the appropriate vendors site and download XP drivers, they may or may not work.
