Check are your usb driver is properly installed or they are enabled... I happed with me also... It took some time to locate and install the usb by windows but it can also be the cable problem... Check these things and if nothing is wrong within these then try to reinstall the windows and i am sure that this will solve your problem!

My vista laptop will not allow me to play a game as I do not have the latest OS????


Ah - its not Vista at fault here but the game - it does not recognise Vista properly. Re-install the game by righ clicking on the installer and choosing Troubleshoot Compatibility - then trouble shoot - say it worked on previous version of Windows

Vista will then Emulate XP and it should then work fine.

If this helped please vote kindly

Downgrade to XP


Looks like they do not have very many drivers listed for XP on their site, but all of them (obviously) for Vista. I would recommend you not downgrade to XP with that particular laptop. Sorry!

It is possible to downgrade my OS vista to XP


First and foremost before you do, you need to check to see if drivers are available for your computer for windows xp. Or, if you are more adventurous, find the .inf files that go with your current drivers, find the hardware ID"s in them and then install drivers either directly from manufacturer of component, or download XP drivers from other models with same hardware ID's. It is possible, just make sure you do your research for the drivers first.

A quick search indicates that it has been done, but the HD audio is a bit tricky. Good luck!

Oh, and one more thing, please take a moment to rate this solution with a fixya rating. Thanks! :c)

Windows vista


Windows Vista is the new operative system distributed from Microsoft, following the previous release of Windows XP.

An operative system is the interface between the user (you ) and the computer, that allows you to manage computer hardware resources and peripheral, and manage processes (software) running on your computer.

From the user point of view The operative syste is the environment where you run applications, manage connected devices, storing files and starting and stopping programs.

Vista is the latest OS released from Microsoft. It has a powerful interface, but it can be slow running on old computers. On vista you can also have some compatibility problem when you try to install old devices built for XP, such as printers, scanners etc.

Windows vista sp1 will not install


Goto Microsoft update webpage and check for updates. There is probably an update needed to correct a problem with vista. It's too new yet and still has many issues. Once it works it works good, but it has issues. I've reverted my system to XP pro due to these other issues with hardware compatibility.

CHECK WITH YOUR SYSTEM MANUFACTURER WHETHER OR NOT YOUR WARRANTY IS VOIDED IF YOU INSTALL AND DUAL BOOT WITH WINDOWS XP. MANY OF THE NEWER SYSTEMS ARE DESIGNED AND CONFIGURED TO ONLY RUN WINDOWS VISTA. HARDWARE ON YOUR SYSTEM MAY NOT BE DESIGNED TO RUN WINDOWS XP.
