Hi and welcome to the forum :wave:

Did you install XP over Vista...? If so you are screwed and there are no drivers that can help you...As far as my searching goes the machine was built as a Vista machine....

There is always the option of going back to Vista, or trying Windows 7 RC or even better trying one of the many Linux distro's

Does that mean that you have given up the search and were unable to find anything :( I was really hoping that that you might find something :(

Regarding your suggestions: Vista - Never. I simply don't like it. Have no clue about Windows 7 RC and what it is and since how long has it been out??? Linux: Have only heard of it but for some reason the old text based UNIX O/S comes to mind and i assume that very few software are available for LINUX and especially when I have been using nothing but Windows since I recall....

Modern Linux's are every bit as good if not better in some ways than Windows. Have a look at some of the walkthroughs in the Linux section.
