Re: rolling back to xp from vista

Hey, I found all the drivers. I used Belarc advisor to identify each of the various hardware items requiring a driver (video, audio, LAN, etc..) and then went right to the Mfg's site to download them individually (i.e. realtek audio). For video, to improve graphics, I actually just went with a mid-level PCI-E card (nVidiaa 8600 GT) and it is a pretty darn good gaming computer now. I also bumped up the RAM to 3GB. Since the AMD 64x2 5000+ is a 64 bit processor I installed XP 64 PRO instead of the 32 bit XP Pro . . . XP64 can take advantage of the 64 bit capabilities. I think it made a big difference but I never ran 3Dmark to validate that. Hope this helps. Feel free to shoot me a note if you have any questions. Good luck!

I have no sound. My audio controller,"this device cannot start.[code 10]"

Hi Empressandi. Have you recently updated your audio driver? If so try rolling back your driver. If your operating system is Windows XP goto start menu, control panel, system, device manager, locate your audio controller and click on roll back driver Likewise under Vista goto start menu, control panel and in the search box, top left, type device manager.
If this audio controller has never worked try searching for an updated driver.
Hope this helps.

Ethernet problems

I had the same problem. How I got all the drivers I needed I got ahold of an older LAN card like a Realtek 8139 or a 3Com and Windows XP automatically picked it up. I go online and paid the $30 to for a year subscription and scanned for drivers. It picked ALL of them up and I downloaded them there until I was 100%.

You don't have to use Vista. I certainly don't. I hope this helps you.

I just changed my windows xp for vista! and i can't put new system on !! says my ethernet adaptor will not work with vista

You're either going to have to change some or all your hardware to Vista compatible, or uninstall vista and re-install XP. One of the bigger drawbacks to vista is its incompatiblity with a majority of older hardware. It's always a god idea to check to make sure if the new OS is going to be happy with your existing hardware.
Good Luck
