OK so I have a Vista Computer

Recommended Posts

Thats there fault for tring to install the latest and greatest (yeah right) software on 5 year old hardware.


Sure people will try it...theres no doubt but its easier to tell them to upgrade there hardware then fight them about WHY their shiny new software doesnt work.


YOU HAVE TO UPGRADE YOUR PACKARD BELL 2600 LADY!!!!!!!! :surrender::pullhair:

2. Vista has enormous requirements, so if they don't have the resources to purchase new hardware, then they have no business using Vista in the first place.

I agree with this....leave XP alone if it's working good for you.


No one needs the 'Vista Experience' if you don't plan to continue testing it with outdated hardware and drivers :geezer:

What exactly is "outdated" hardware?


One year, two years, three years.................?


I only ask because I have tested it on all kinds of hardware, and it ran on everything I have.


There are people who would consider my stuff outdated, and those who would consider it great stuff.

Bruce... I don't know that answer, but apparently my one year old Laptop is outdated as far as hardware goes. I Can't get the drivers needed from HP because they aren't updating them....??


Now with that said, I am running Vista Business on my laptop with no problems (yet). That's all I really need or want, but it would be nice if ...well never mind. Expecting too much from a one year old laptop that had XP pro on it was a long shot.

Have you checked HP's website recently, they have been adding drivers like crazy, yesterday they a had a couple for my laptop, as the day progressed today, every driver for it was available and software updates...........


Everything on my laptop was pretty much working also, but there were a couple items like the quick launch buttons that I was waiting for. This laptop was also made last year.

Why should people have to throw away their hardware? I wouldn't want my laptop rendered useless before the warranty is out.


Won't we get budget systems anymore? Will Dell only sell their 'gaming' style PCs?


The worst part is all of this "old" hardware will run Beryl (A far more complex 3d desktop) with no trouble at all.
