Slight problem with your link..... (link not broken).... that problem is that ... Do you know exactly the model of laptop the poster has???? Is it a AMD or Intel based laptop??? The link you provided is for a DV6000 type that is AMD based.... what happens if his laptop is a Intel based..... ummmmm not gonna work...

He needs to find out what exact model his DV6000 series laptop and go to and search for those specific drivers for his exact model. (hint to poster: look at the bottom of the laptop on the label containing type, model and s/n information)

Very true G.G. shot in the dark. But if people would just Google a little bit, or check the manufacturers websites they can pretty much answer their own questions for situations just like this.

Google does not provide the Network Controller drivers, neither does the HP website ... they are very hard to find for the 6208nr. When you say "Google for the drivers?" have you actually tried it for that product and really found them?

I had the same problem with my new dv6000. I did wanted to buy the laptop with Vista because I wanted to see by myself the enw system. WRONG! The minute I finished to activate the Vista first time use I noticed that the equipment was so slow in performance that i could not believe it! My laptop came with 1GB RAM, 120GB Hard Drive, DVD Writter, etc.. Thank god I had the Windows XP in hand so I decided to change my OS (since I am a computer technician) so, I went into some trouble. Fisrt I have to deactivate the SATA support (from the BIOS), then I could install windows Xp, BANG! No network card, (at least my wireless was working).

Looking in the net I found a website with a lot of people with this same problem. the solution was very simple. Download all the drivers of the dv6000 for windows xp, second: download all the drivers for the dv9000. This second download will give you the drivers of the dv9000 model. For a reason that I don't know it seems that the dv9000 have saome or maybe all the same peripherals. So I decided to test the dv9000 driver (of the network card) and for my surprise it worked fine!! so I'm giving you the url so you did not go into the same i went.;lang=en

This is the dv9000 drivers page, download the "Intel PRO 100 Network Adapter Driver" and you will see you problems will go away.

Now, I NEED TO TELL YOU that after my xp installation I will NEVER go back to Windows Vista. This computer FLY with windows XP. I will recommend you to install the XP, it worth the try.

Good luck!

Thanks for the feedback. You clearly have "walked the walk"

Actually, the number of people that have said "just go to" has been infuriating, since the idea is you must not have tried the obvious; well, HP provides SO LITTLE SUPPORT I returned the laptop and there was no questions asked. Of course I locked in on a specific model number and there is very little out there. There is no way to get into the help account without that information.

HP claims that they provide the drivers, yet for the "nr" version you have to be as creative as you've suggested. Though I was told that as of Saturday HP has started releasing the files needed.

Too late ...I've ordered a Dell, now, actually.....

My company picked up a dv6243cl that comes preloaded with Vista and HP's support site is remarkably unhelpful. They not only don't provide XP drivers for it, but they also aren't helpful at determining the model numbers of the equipment installed.

What ended up working for me is that they DO provide XP drivers for the 6143, and they've all worked so far - the only one I'm missing is the SM bus driver

I have got the problem tod owngrade my HP pvilion dv6000 from VISTA to WindowsXP i really wonder that why on HP web site there are no drivers for the windowsxp . all the drivers which they are online they are not even suitable for windowsXP sp-2/3 . so how a person can buy that kind of products if there is no backup service there and even in Qatar there is no any help desk or even in HP company here theyd ont provide the drivers at all why the HP company dont provide the Backup CD's with the products for VISTA and WindowsXP .

There is no SATA driver even on HP web site for downgrading the VISTA to WindowsXP because it dont take opreating system at all asking for SATA hard disc driver. even there is no Ethernet driver or Graphic driver . most of the drivers are not working as HP has given there on thier website
Please if anyone have all these drivers so e-mail me . But be sure u r not giving me the URL address for the HP website because i have tried all of them and they are useless

This is to save anyone some trouble... If you have an HP Pavilion M7790e, Here is a link to a Zip file that contains most all of the drivers you will need. This includes video, audio, ethernet, etc.. There is still some problem with the ethernet drivers, although they install and all seems ok, the nic card never obtains an ip... just fyi

Well done Mr Delgado.

Your post may be old but after spending almost 1 day following HP notes, forums, other web sites and with the determination not download freepopupware programs your suggestion worked 1st time.
I have a pavillion dv6355ea and this 'Base system' thing was impossible.
I downloaded the DV9000 5-1 card reader driver as suggested and HELLO SD card.
Now I just need to figure the SM Bus controller.

Thanks for the info on installing the base system device. I now have all my drivers installed.

For getting the SM Bus drivers I used a program called "CPUZ" It will read the chipset information on your laptop. For instance, my dv6000 has an Intel 945pm chipset. All I had to do was go to Intel's site and download that driver to get the SM Bus installed. You can download it from the link below. Hope this helps people find all the drivers they need

Hello. I have a HP Pavilion s3660a Slimline desktop computer and am having trouble finding drivers for Windows XP. On the HP site it says they do not support going back to XP since the computer originally had Vista. I cannot connect to the net via wireless or ethernet cause both drivers are required. I have tried many divers for the wireless and ethernet but not one is being recognised and will not correct the problem I have.If anyone is able to help out that would be much appreciated. Thanks
