Guys,

Where will I find ALL the drivers for Windows XP for my HP TX1000 series laptop ?

I am fed up of Vista now (even after I upgraded to 2GB RAM) and am planning to install Windows XP.

Thanks

I think even I had downloaded the SP1 but couldn't feel much difference than the IE not hanging as frequently as before, also update a few other patches too, I have Home Premium

Guys a friend of mine is having this problem with Vista on his hp tablet notebook. After working with it for an hour or so explorer windows keep randomly popping up. He has formatted his drives a couple of times, reinstalled vista, even has tried a pirated copy but the problem continues. Diagnosis anyone?

I recently saw a forum where somebody had diagnosed explorer launching iexplore.exe randomly, and had fixed it. can't seem to find the link now. google and you may be able to get to it. could be something related.

Reached home and tried to boot up the laptop - it simply refused to boot up.

So booted up with the last good configuration. Will check what is wrong tomorrow.

From the Microsoft site obviously.

ps - Serious question - If I downgrade to XP, will it work flawlessly ? Answer this as seriously as possible guys. I am seriously thinking of going back to XP now. btw what does a official licensed version of XP cost ?

Yes you will get all the drivers. If you can give the exact model number I can give you the link.

PS: I am using the same series and my system's model number is TX1301au. You can find the model number on the sticker beneath the laptop.
