What was the original OS on it? Some laptops only came with the ability to use 1 OS.

is that an Asus? you could try to install manually Intel Wireless driver, the Realtek audio driver, and the Asus hotkey driver.
it probably would be at the Asus site and fairly hard to navigate but if there are drivers for it they should be there.

note XP is dead no support from MS

Drivers come from the hardware vendors... they may have gone out of business or discontinued support... try old version or some repo that holds old drivers
