You'll have to see if the component manufacturers (Intel, ATI, Broadcom, etc.) have XP drivers.
Very few new notebooks have XP support -- there may be drivers but you'll have to find them from the component manufacturers.

I have the same problem as yours. Need XP driver for my Inspiron 5010
Searching through net, I came across websites like these:
I need to be a member so that I can download the files. Problem is i don't have online account to pay for membership. Is anyone here a member of these sites who can help me?
Or does anyone have any direct link for XP drivers on Dell inspiron N5010?
You aren't going to find one-stop driver downloads for your system -- nor need you pay. Make a list of the hardware in the system BEFORE you install XP and visit the component makers' websites - Intel, ATI, nVidia, Broadcom, ALPS, Synaptics, etc. and download the drivers you need. You may in fact need to settle for partial functionality - some drivers may not be available, since you're talking about installing a 2001-vintage OS on an 2010 model notebook.
