Hi Chincy

If you want to install the drivers without going to each driver one by one you can subscribe to driver genius and they will install all your drivers with a cost though.
But you do have an option of finding out from HP the ftp url where you can get all the drivers but going one by one this time and tell them you downgraded from VISTA to XP.

For some hardware there are no drivers for vwin xp..so you should check before the downgrade.
Chech on the hp site for drivers for your notebook.

    I had to do the same thing...the best (and really the only) solution was to go to the HP support site and download everything for XP for my specific system. Simply google "HP your_model_number drivers" and that should point you in the right direction.
