Why did you install XP? HP doesn't list any XP drivers so I suspect it originally came with Vista.

That means you'll have to identify all the onboard devices (motherboard chipset, graphics, audio, network, etc) then hunt down the drivers from the individual chip manufacturers. Here's the specs:

You'll need the NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE graphics drivers, the NVIDIA nForce 430 legacy chipset drivers, the Realtek ALC888S HD audio drivers, & Realtek RTL8201N network driver. If you're lucky, the audio & network drivers will be contained in the legacy drivers package.

Here's the graphics & chipset drivers, install the chipset drivers 1st:

You can also try the ECS website. This board is close, the audio & network drivers should be compatible:
