Re: Windows Vista Ultimate on Compaq nx9010



I recommend you to use Windows XP for time being since, Windows Vista is new released  and make softwares might not work with vista as they are not compitable to vista.


However, if you wish use the Windows Vista then I suggest you to make a note of softwares that are not working in Vista  and then look forward for assistance of Particular software Manufacturer for patch of Vista driver or software to work with application.


So it is clearly an issue with softwares and not with Windows Vista.  My personal advice  you to start using Vista after 2-3 months as many software vendors started to release and work to  develope their application software with Vista.


hmm, let me tell you further . You can visit and check out  website of software vendor for any updates on Vista. This would help you. If you see any updates available, then please go ahead and try to download and install it.  This would work !!!1


I am sure that this should resolve the issue for you.


 if you need any further assistance you can mail me at I'll be glad to help you.

I need a driver firewire ieee 1394 for HP Compaq 8710w Mobile Workstation working with Windows 7 Ultimate?

Maybe the Vista driver will work. Most times if there is not one for Windows 7 the previous version will work.
