XP drivers for Studio 1537?

This question has suggested answer(s)

I'm looking for some help in tracking down Windows XP drivers for all of the components in my Studio 1537.

It shipped with Vista, which I don't like. So, I copied the image from my old laptop to the hard drive, did a Windows XP repair install, and now it boots fine. However, the Dell driver download area, in the drop-box where you select your operating system, only lets you select flavors of Vista.

So, I've had to search around the net for the vendor/device ID's of the various installed components. However, I'm still unable to find XP drivers for the AuthenTec fingerprint reader and, although I found drivers for the Intel WiFi 5100 card, the wireless just stops working altogether after about an hour. Trying to go to standby yields the message "The device driver for the 'Intel(R) Wireless WiFi Link 5100' device is preventing the system from entering standby".

So, I may need different drivers for that, too.

Any leads?
