Is there any wat I can fix this or do I need to install OS XP PRO?

You are probably lacking the chipset drivers.  Since it's a notebook, controllers like the Ethernet controller, the modem, the sound card, etc. are integrated on the motherboard.  Each manufacturer needs drivers specific to the motherboard.  Use a different PC to connect with HP's support web site and look for your devices specific drivers for the motherboard/chipset.  Download them to a USB memory stick and install them to the notebook from the memory stick.

I downloaded the chipset driver to a USM memory stick from my other computer and tried to download it into the notebook but none of the four USB ports seem to be working. I'll try burning it to a disc and installing it that way. It didn't work I got an error executing the specified program. "c:\swsetup\SP41388\Setup.exe"
