I cannot format vista to install xp

If your vista is active it will not let you format the drive to install windows XP you have to shut down the computer , put the XP CD in the cd drive and start FROM THE CD, at this point you will follow the Xp installation Instruction and come to a page where you will have the possibility to format the partition where vista is installed,
Note, you should look for ALL rhe XP driver of you computer model BEFORE you do this sometimes a computer sold wit Windows Vista do not have any XP driver for all the peripheral installed in that computer

My logitech quickcam 9.0.2 Will not downlood on vista computer help please

Sounds like a driver problem. Have you switched from an XP computer to a Vista computer? If so, you must go out to the Logitech web site and hit Support, then Downloads, put your QuickCam model it and select the driver for Vista. Install the driver by double-clicking on it after the download.

Hope this helps.

I downgraded my vista to xp 32bit and now im figuring out that my gateway m-7351u doesnt suppport xp and I dont really want to go back to vista. What should I do? How can I get my sound working on xp.

Hi There,

Go to this thread. Alot of people worked hard to put it together. I believe the Audio Driver a ways down the page highlighted in red will work on your machine.

I spent a long time tracking this down for you so NO "unhelpful" marks, please.

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.

Could be due to the fact that vista has drivers to support the hardware and XP may not have.

Please try checking the laptop manufacturers website for XP drivers for the specific hardware.
