    Hi. Thanks loads for getting back to me. I'm really rubbish with computers and I've tried to look for all this myself but am at a loss!



    It's an iStart 2380. I've had a look on the packard bell website and it only gives help for Vista (becasue that's what it came with) but my "friend" nuked it and put on XP. I am really beginning to wish I hadn't listened to him!!!!!



    Thanks so much for your help.

    The iStart models are usually 4 digits, such as 1369, 1296, 2086, etc.

    The correct model number may be right on the front of the tower, or on the back on a label.

Heres the driver for the audio, and the others you may need:

Click on the "driver" tab, and you will see the XP drivers listed along with the Vista drivers.

    Also, install the 'chipset' (at the bottom) drivers for XP BEFORE the others..

    You may also have to install the XP specific bios files prior to the others.

Which drivers used when install vista in compaq Sg2044il


Don't upgrade unless you are planning on installing a new graphics board (VGA). The specs on this PC show that it has an Intel 865G graphics solution. There are no Vista drivers for this chip-set. It is possible that the XP drivers will work but I wouldn't count on it. Probably the same goes for the sound board. Not worth it. Besides that XP is better than Vista anyway. If you want to upgrade, wait for Windows 7 to be released, then take the money you would have spent on this PC and put it towards a new core2 duo or core2 quad. According to the beta testing, Windows 7 will be MUCH better than Vista. I think the release date supposed to be sometime around the middle of 2009? Don't quote me on that. Hope this helped. If so, please remember to rate me. Thanks.

IBM Think Pad A21M Sound Drivers For Vista


This appears to have what you are looking for. IBM had no drivers for vista supported on your computer that i could find. However Lenovo does, the steps are pretty self explained. Just after you type in what model and all that stuff and click next be sure to click refine search and select your drivers otherwise you could be looking for awhile. The lan card will fall under network.

Vista to xp downgrade system


Hi,

Often, yes most if not all of the drivers are available from the net. To be safe, pls post back brand/model of your PC, the devices such as video card, NIC, WiFi, Sound, etc. All of these may be found in your Hardware/Device Manager.

Hope this be of some initial help/idea. Post back details as requested and will work from thereon.

Good luck and kind regards.
