Hi, I got a new laptop for my birthday not too long ago, and it originally had Windows Vista, but today I decided to put Windows XP on it instead. And of course, none of my drivers are installed.. And on my taskbar, it doesn't show a battery showing how much battery life I have left.. So I won't know when to plug in the charger.. How could I get all my drivers, and get the battery on the taskbar?

Also, my laptop is a HP Pavilion dv6809wm Entertainment Notebook PC.

Then, take a couple of days of vacation, and look for XP compatible drivers for every single piece of your computer hardware.
