You must not have tried very hard. It really helps to get the correct model number...did you forget the "F"? as in SR5710F?

If HP doesn't have XP drivers, you're going to have to identify your hardware, then hunt them down individually. This list mentions the motherboard model number:

So searching further turns up the motherboard specs:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/...

Which in turn tells you which hardware is used:

motherboard chipset = nForce 430
onboard graphics = GeForce 6150SE
sound = Realtek ALC888
network = Realtek RTL8201N
firewire = VIA VT6307

Now all you have to do is find the drivers. The places to look are nVidia.com, Realtek.com, VIAarena.com

Or you could do a search "windows driver packs"on Goggle.

Burn them to cd...you will need at least 3 as the packs contain drivers for about 3200 pieces of hardware.

You could also get them doing a search under driver packs torrents.

I realize having all the drivers for all the hardware new and old is overkill, But having the packs saves time should you ever need another driver.
