you need to load all the Matching HP drivers.
XP is dead OS now, and a virus magnet,
all that is HP drivers for HP hardware,
if the HP drivers are missing all that fails and more.
if the DVD drive works, forget the MS generalities...(names)
works right matters 100%
the first chip that need to work right is the Intel south bridge.
if its driver is missing USB2 fails. as will blutooth and finger reader
the reader only works with the HP security app loaded
and if was loaded shows up in the task bar, if not its wrong app.
only the correct HP apps work here, and drivers.
here is your support page at HP.
get them will still there, after 10 years they all go byebye.
get 32bit or 64bit right too, that too must match.
all the above, are options, you stated
the device must be there and the cable inside connected to it
and the south bridge must be loaded ,its matching driver
and warning #1
XP is now offically dead.
that means if you are connected to the internet
the MS, driver server pages are now gone,
updates are there but the drivers were deleted.
so that means all drivers must come from HP or there will be none, that is beyond your LOCAL driver cache , present now in C:/windows.
whats in your cache now , no man on earth knows.
but SP3 must be loaded or vast drivers are NOW missing
for sure things like USB. AND dvd DRIVES.
Why mess with XP?>?>>>
no person needs this pain, ever.
it has over 700 exploits.
