Check for updates for your particular laptop on the manufacturers website for Vista. Hopefully that will get you fixed up.

^ well along the same lines, go back to XP lol... I put vista on my desktop for about a month, but had constant crashing due to the graphics card drivers. I had Ati's vista drivers installed and even went back and forth with ati's service trying to fix it...

In the end I said fuck it and went back to XP Not only is my problem solved, my frame rates in games went up by 10-15fps lol!!

To the OP....manually download and install all the drivers you can think of. Otherwise revert back to XP. I'm not aware of any real advantages to Vista right now.

Take care,

Vista sucks. I compare it to the horrible Windows ME that came out right before 2000 Pro.

FUCK Canada

vista has been great for me so far. Only issue I have had is with some of the video and picture direct links on this site not working and that was resolved by using Mozilla. Other than that I actually like the setup I have but there really aren't too many advantages over XP...just a few little gadgets that you don't use every day.



Looking for sponsorships for 2010 on the car above... PM for details and schedule.

I'm a mod motor GOD! LOL!

I've had pretty good luck with Vista's so far. Using it both at home and at work on two different Desktops. Only thing is you need a minimum of 1GB of RAM for it to work half way good. Friend has it on her laptop with only 512MB of RAM and it's fucking slow.
