Re: i need windows vista
Hi there. Vista is better suited for laptops at the moment, the OS should run fine but its always a good idea to max out the memory if you want Vista because its a memory hungry operating system and also the data transfer rate is much slower than XP.

Ok this is kind of common with Windows 7. Although everyone thinks its new its really not just a fairly bug free OS. The HP models running Win7 actually are using the Vista or XP driver for audio. I just ran into that issue a few months ago when upgrading a Pavillian model.
Hi there , have had the same type of display problems with the same model , goes into sleep mode or something similar in the end i downloaded a bois update from hp & installed it , seems
to have helped the problem settle down .
I would suggest first trying to make it a dual boot to make sure you can get all the drivers working. Vista has a resize function for the drive size, and you can install XP in a second partition (probably about half the drive would be nice) There are directions for that elsewhere. You can make a folder on the partition after you install the XP Windows system (Vista should see the XP partition with no problem) and download drivers as you find them in the Vista, which will still have connectivity software running, while XP might not connect until you find the ethernet and wireless drivers. I looked in Google, and found several sites with people looking for and finding the XP drivers that worked. You will need a working copy of the version of XP you want to install, with COA/install numbers for the XP, of course. Good Luck.
