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.

Specifications are in this document:

You must also install a chipset driver - that, you can get from Intel.

Re: problem XP driver Inspiron n5010

I have the same problem as yours. Need XP driver for my Inspiron 5010

Searching through net, I came across websites like these:
http://www.downloadhq.org/servers.php?q=dell%20inspiron%20n5010%20drivers%20for%20xp
or
http://www.freshdl.com/wn/windows+xp+drivers+dell+inspiron++n5010.html

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?

Re: problem XP driver 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.
