When I first got my HP Pavilion DV6753ca computer, it had Vista installed on it! This was back in 2008.
I felt like downgrading to XP, because I liked the experience on XP better, and one of my favorite applications wouldn’t run on Vista, but would only work on XP. So I downgraded, but I soon realized that HP, the manufacturer, didn’t really provide any XP drivers for this laptop! I was really thrown for a loop!
After HOURS and HOURS of endless searching, I’ve managed to compile an almost complete list of all the drivers you need, and I’ve included downloads also, so you can get them all of this one page! BOOKMARK IT! Some of these drivers are out of date, like the nVidia drivers, but they work just fine, and I don’t think there are any newer version available for XP, so if you really want XP you’ll have to put up with that.
Otherwise, you could go with Windows 7 . What’s handy about installing Windows 7 on this particular laptop is that you don’t have to really manually install any drivers at all! Once you’ve installed windows, it automatically installs all the drivers for you, including your video drivers!
I hope that all of your driver installations run smoothly! Please comment here if this works for you, or comment if you have a problem.
