Vista is supposed to find the apppropiate driver when you plug in the camera, if it did not work, you can then use applications like Picasa, from google to download and transfer images from your camera.

Hello: I hope the following information is helpful.
If you are trying to install the driver for the Broadcom ethernet NIC that was pre-installed (NOT an ethernet card that you purchased and installed yourself), there is a softpack (updated driver installation) download available from HP/Compaq. It will install the driver automatically for you, just download it from the link below and run the ".exe" file.
IMPORTANT: Check to be sure that your current Operating System, and model of the network device you are trying to install, are BOTH listed below BEFORE you download!

I want to do a restore to factory default


That disc is the OS disc. The anytime upgrade is offered by the manufacturer but is a Microsoft Windows issue. There were two types of upgrades. One let you roll back a Vista machine to XP; the other lets you switch to a higher version of the OS (Vista comes in several flavors - Home Basic, Home Premium, Business, and Ultimate). Look at microsoft.com for details.

I'm not surprise that they wanted money to help you. The company makes money on support.

If you want to, you can use the OS disc to do a clean (custom) reinstall. Boot from the OS disc and then reformat the hard disc during the installation. Get the drivers from http://www.emachines.com/support/drivers.html and fill in the drop downs. Have these handy because you will need them.

I hope this helps.

Camera works on Windows XP but i have Vista


You would need to download and install the Windows Vista driver from the webcam manufacturers website. You should be able to find it by clicking on the support link and looking up your specific model #. Hope this helps.

How to put xp home edition on an acer aspire 17" laptop which currently has vista home basic on


First and foremost before you try to downgrade your OS from Vista to XP make sure that you can find a working device driver for your laptop, if you check your manufacturer's website(Acer) see if they have XP drivers for your device because I had some clients that are having problem trying to make some of their device work(built in webcam, ethernet, wi-fi, sound) when they downgraded to XP for faster processing.
