Question about HP Pavilion zd8000 Notebook
I have windows vista ultimate and there is supposedly no drivers for it.
when i play team fortress 2, i get these bog downs from time to time where my FPS will drop to about 9. im running the game in the lowest video settings with 3ghz and 2 gigs of ram. over time it seems like this problem is getting worse and occurring in greater intervals.
should i downgrade back to XP?
is there something wrong with my video hardware (i.e. overheating)?
The ZD8000 is a very nice machine, but if there are no Vista drivers released for it, you're going to be very frustrated by it's performance.
It came loaded with XP right? If it was a factory Vista load, and drivers are missing, the recovery partition should be able to repair the installation. If there's no video driver, I don't know how it's playing the game at all.
In any case, if it came with XP, and you can find no drivers for Vista, your only choice seems to be to return to XP. It's not as visually stimulating, but much faster in general, especialy for this machine.
Hope this helps
