How to HP DC7900 MINITOWER WINDOWS VISTA DOWNGRADE TO WINDOWS XP?


Are you having problems? If you are, I am not surprised. You will have driver issues.
Contact www.hp.com for drivers. If there are no drivers for XP then it won't work properly.

How to downgrade from windows 7 to xp on emachine laptop


If it is a new emachine, then it proberly will not let you. There is a problem with drivers. certain pieces of the hardware might no have any drivers that are supported by XP.. The best thing you can do is check the emachine website to see if any drivers XP. If so then follow this basic guide to format and re-install XP on your PC.

do not downgrade, if you don't have WIndows XP software.
you can not dowgrade Vista to Windows XP.
copy all the data from your computer and store it on a DVD or CD.
inssert the WIndows XP, reformat and install, (just following the instruction on screen).
you can upgrade from WIndows XP to Vista, not the other way around.

I want a driver for my dell optiplex gx260 vga i am using a vista operating sestem


As the person above said, that video card will not work with Windows Vista. You are basically left with 2 options:

1. Downgrade the computer to Windows XP, in which the video card will work with

2. Purchase a new video card like this one

Really the choice is yours, but I would downgrade and save the $!

Downgrade Acer M1641 from Vista home premium to Windows XP


Its a driver incompatibility issue. Many hardware components designed for Vista are incompatible with XP. This means that the Realtek audio driver may be the Vista version. Also, some hardware has of yet no XP drivers, so your audio components were designed for Vista only.
While it may be possible to "force" the driver to work, it may involve a number of hacks to the Windows registry and other files.

Vista downgrade to XP


Good day

If you have all the Windows XP drivers for your PC, then it is not a problem to downgrade to Vista, although i will not advise downgrading, as Microsoft mentioned that they are only going to release the last Service Pack for XP, then there will be no more Service Packs for XP, and only Support for Vista.

Hope this helps you to make up your mind

Regards

Sorry to inform you but you cant downgrade from vista to xp on this model I have found most systems that are designed to run vista lose several drivers when downgraded to xp.

the only solution that will restore drivers would be to reload vista by purchasing an upgrade version of vista (this allows an upgrade from xp to vista and will restore drivers only catch is your xp operating system must be xp home with sp2(service pack 2).

When you removed vista from your machine you actually downgraded by replacing the vista operating system with XP.

Only OEM editions of Windows Vista Business and Vista Ultimate can be downgraded to Windows XP Professional. Microsoft offers no downgrade rights for Vista Home Basic or Home Premium.
