HP should begin selling XP versions of the Mini-Note any day now, but some of us eager beavers couldn't deal with Vista any longer and "downgraded" to Windows XP ourselves. If you have been following my Mini-Note tales, you know that installing XP is simple, however the issues begin after XP is up and running and you discover all the missing drivers.
HP has finally updated its Web site with the needed drivers for XP (opens in new tab), including the all-important Broadcom Wireless LAN Driver (opens in new tab). My Mini-Note was without any wireless access for a few days and I have been tethered to an Ethernet cord. Not anymore. I simply downloaded the driver to the notebook from this site and the wireless network tool popped up in my system tray.
Missing from the drivers available, however, is one for audio or sound. Has anyone found a driver to enable sound on the Mini-Note running XP?
