    It looks like HP only provides drivers for Vista....
    Use the drivers listed in the "Original Drivers" section. I didn't see a chipset driver listed, and I think that's what the 'PCI Bridge' device is part of... According to your motherboard specs (here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/...&cc=us&dlc=en&os=2093&product=3377275&lang=en) you have an NVidia chipset, and the board is made by ECS. You can try using the nForce chipset drivers from here: http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us Be sure to select nForce 6150SE/nForce 430. The XP drivers from nVidia should work (the key word is "should").
    Good luck!

    I'm having the same problem with the drivers for an HP Pavillion that I am downgrading to XP from Vista. I'm running the same ECS mobo# MCP61pm-hm rev:1.08. It appears to have the NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE NForce 430 chipset. I have downloaded two drivers from NVIDIA's site and I am still showing the yellow question mark in the hardware manager for the SM Bus Controller and the Other PCI Bridge Device. I am running XP Pro. I also have not been able to get the onboard Realtek network connection to work so I put a PCI Linksys Network Card in and it worked. I would rather use the onboard card but I can live with a PCI card. Any thoughts on how to get the two issues taken care of?
