Installing drivers for a Compaq Presario v2000

My girlfriend has a Compaq Presario v2000. It's an OK system, I guess.
Her laptop was totally overwrought with malware, and she does not have the original CDs anymore. I bought Windows XP Pro SP2 and installed it without any problems. I'm on the HP/Compaq website looking for the myriad of drivers, and none of them will work. I download them, and try to install, but they all fail upon installation and quit out of the installer.
I install stuff like this all the time on my home-built PC, I don;t know what the problem is here.
I'd like to go to the ATI website to download the video drivers manually, but I cannot find the specs for the video on this PC ANYWHERE. Not at the HP site, not at Cnet, not anywhere. In fact, some sites list it as having ATI, some as having onboard Intel video hardware.
What can I do here? I feel totally screwed!
