Hi all,
I have just visited HP's website, and to my astonishment found the next few lines:

HP Compaq nx6115 Notebook PCs and HP Compaq nx6125 Notebook PCs - Availability of 64-Bit Drivers

ISSUE:
HP has received inquiries about the availability of 64-Bit drivers for these units.

SOLUTION:
We do not have 64-Bit drivers available for these units. At this time, we do not have plans to provide 64-Bit drivers for these platforms.

Well, I bought a Turion64 based laptop (HP Compaq nx 6125) and I just wanted to try out XP 64-bit edition. Why do they offer this CPU if they force you to use 32-bit systems? Just to pay more? Are there any 64-bit drivers for my system, or do I have to search the entire net for each and every device driver?

What do you think of this issue?

P. S. The link to HP:

You can not find the drivers on HP's website doesn't mean you can't find them on the Internet!!

I think that you should have did your homework before buying a laptop with expectations/assumptions of 64 bit driver availability...
