It might...which one do i download though...when i got to the site it said

 

Download not found

 

an error has occurred

 

please select product

 

Expert:  Adam Wright replied 4 years ago.

Go to this page and look through until you find the one for XP. Intel's site kinda makes you jump through hoops. It has sent me in circles before (kinda like it did this time). If you can't find it let me know and I'll try to locate it from somewhere else.
