    I've learned that it takes years to build up trust,
    and it only takes suspicion, not proof, to destroy it.

    Install Bellarc Advisor or Lavalys Everest and they'll give you specific hardware infiormation so you can find drivers at the manufacturer's site.
    There isn't a bargepole long enough for me to work on [a Sony Viao] - clocker 2008

    I had to do this recently for a friend.. I got everything working with XP using a similar model on the Compaq website. I deleted the restore partition as I had no idea how to use it but yeah what a pain in the arse this is for Compaq owners.

    I found Driver Magician a great help , if you can get on the net that is .

    @yevgeny is right I had to search for Asus XP drivers for a buddie and found using similar models you can get it running .

    Found a guide here ( Asus Support Forum ) that gives you an idea of the hoops you'll have to go thru .

    demonoid has a great torrent with thousands of windows xp drivers. Just burn it pop in the cd and it will do all the work for you without you having to spend hours looking for them yourself. I've used it on different computers and found drivers for all of them no problem.
