I have a hp pavillion dv 1000 which was running XP pro. It had a 80 gig hard drive and everything worked great. I got a 320 gig hd from a friend and vista was password protected, so I just reinstalled vista ultimate on it. I'm using it now, and everything works great except the audio.
The error message used to say that there is no audio device installed, and now it just won't work. I've tried to get support at hp but they evidently don't have anything for this notebook if it is running vista. I've tried a few different drivers, but still no sound. The one thing that does work is the windows sounds. No speakers, no headphones, no mic or any input recoginition. I know its not the hardware since everything works fine if I put my old hd back in.

256 mb of memory is not very much. It's the bare minimum you can get by with running Windows XP. Adding more would certainly be an improvement. Only 1 gig of free space left on an 80 gig hard drive is not much room for Windows to work with. I would definitely try to get rid of or back up some files to make more room. You should also run a system clean up and do a defragmentation of the hard drive.
You should keep your anti virus software up to date if you have one installed. If not you can go HERE and run Trend Micro's Houscall on your PC. Viruses and Spyware will bog down a system and cause it to run extremely slow.
check first the sample rate maybe its to high like instead of 44k. its in 48 96 or something like that so the buffering isnt catching with the recoding . alogn with your lattency configuration must devices are ok in 512 latency.
and also be shure not to be recording directly to tyour external hard drive
in case of plugin overload issue it would not stop recording suddenly it would slow down first with some crackles and then stop or must shure freeze.
so impretty shure its somethin else.
hope it works
you might want to downgrade to xp because vista uses alot of ram to run it. you could also get more ram. you need about 1gb and a half to 2 gigs to run most recording softwares and interfaces. i personally use vista cause i lost my xp disk and i got 2 gbs of ram and everything runs great, but if you really want to get into recording do what im doing and save up and buy a mac.
