1. All the driver tested and worked except intel matrix storage manager, webcam and lightscribe. So these 3 driver i added base on the current official driver listed for vista in Hp website. The driver version for XP choose base on the driver that often work with most HP/Compaq model.

2. This A900 series almost similar with f700 series so that the other if the are one or more driver i suggested here base on the f700 series.

3, The main problem with this model is to get the AUDIO and WIRELESS.
-For audio i give you 3 drivers above. So if not work we must install it manually.
- For the wireless there are 3 applicable wireless, note that the driver for atheros is for vista but reported work with XP. There are the official XP driver for this but you need to install it manually. Try it first and if failed leave a comment and ill will write a post how to manually install the atheros drivers.For those who use the broadcom and Intel, both drivers were tested and worked.
