The Vostro A860 was supplied for Windows Vista; I prefer and have installed Windows XP but now find that there are no XP drivers listed on the website for this laptop - does anyone know which drivers may be compatible?
Go into the control panel and make a list of the hardware - video, network, etc. Then go to Intel, ATI, Broadcom, nVidia, etc. and see if there are drivers.
Hi Moriarty Holmes
Although there is limited support for this system when it comes to Windows XP, here is the list to drivers which are compatible with Windows XP for your computer.
Intel Mobile Chipset
Ricoh CardReader R5C847
USI Bluetooth 360
Any other drivers apart from the ones above are not supported, the Video driver can be downloaded directly from the Intel Website.
Also go through the following article on proper driver installation.
