Windows XP drivers for laptops

As I wrote before I've got HP dv6700 which I've installed win2003 on. Few days ago I've finished the project for which I needed that OS, and I've started to install WinXP on this machine. As I found out HP doesn't really says which drivers I should use for Windows XP. I've tried installing drivers similar to the ones they say for Vista (only WinXP version of them) and they didn't realy want to install...

Anyway, I started to get somewhere only after installing SiSoftware Sandra. An amazing piece of software that just finds out exactly what kind of hardware you got. With this software I found out in minutes which drivers I should use.
