    First extract the ATI Catalyst 10.6 Drivers then enter Device Manager and use the "Have Disk" method to update the display driver. Have disk method is a way to install a driver that does not have any setup program to install itself automatically. In principle what you are doing is showing Windows where drivers are located. Driver installation scripts are written in *.inf files so a driver must have these files, and this file is located inside:

    Drivers\Display\XP_INF\​

    of the extracted directory.

    To access the driver update follow the steps below:
    1)Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.

    2)The System Properties window will open. Click the Hardware tab, and then click Device Manager.

    3)The Device Manager window will open. Double-click Display adapters.

    4)Right-click on whatever display adapter it shown and click "Update Driver"

    5)Select the following option when the Hardware Update Wizard asks to connect to Windows Update: No, not this time. Click Next.

    6)Select the following option: Install from a list or specific location (Advanced), and then click Next.

    7)Select the Don’t search, I will choose the driver to install option, and then Next

    7.1) UNCheck "Show compatible hardware"

    8)Click on the Have Disk... button, and then click the Browse button.

    9)Browse to the directory where you extracted the driver above i.e. the Drivers\Display\XP_INF subdirectory.

    10)Locate and highlight the the CX100944.inf file then Click the Open button

    11)Click the OK button. A window listing all of the available display types should open. Select the "ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470", and then click the Next button.

    12)The operating system will install the driver. Click the Finish button when done.

    As I know most of the N4010 drivers works with N5010 so you can try to download my most up-to-date set of N4010 drivers from the above links. Since I don't own an N5010 so you have to tell me which drivers doesn't works and tell me what particular hardware is used and I can try locate the missing for you and work out a complete set of XP drivers for the N5010.

    To install the AHCI driver you need to enable AHCI in BIOS during the XP installation - in order to avoid BSOD upon the XP installation you have to:

    1) Splitstream the AHCI driver into the XP installation CD
    or ​
    2) Copy the AHCI drivers into a floppy disk and press F6 when you see a message in the status line that says in the very beginning of the XP install process.

    If you don't have a floppy drive you have to use method 1) and most people use nLite to splitstream additional drivers into the original XP installation CD.

    For use in a laptop I would say ATA and AHCI mode doesn't make any performance different so you can just ignore it if you think the procedures to enable AHCI under XP are too complicated.

    Battery cannot be recognize under XP, this is an unresolved issue, you also need to disable "Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery" from Device Manager or else your CPU will keep a 20 - 25% loading at all time. No XP Quickset driver for any HM55/57 chipset laptop from Dell. Only AHCI driver needed slipstream, others can install after the OS installation.
