Go to the Gigabyte website and check for Vista drivers based on the motherboard model #. If not available there use a program like aida32 or fresh diagnostics to identify the ethernet make and model and go to that manufacturer's site for the Vista driver. You may also be able to just explore the cd that came with the motherboard to find the ethernet driver folder and see if a Vista driver is there and manually install it without using the normal gui install interface like in XP.

Will windows xp supported in amd sempron 145?


No it should not.

However your post does have one confusing detail - XP when installed does not reside on the motherboard but on a Hard Disk Drive. Parts of it will be loaded into memory when you boot up the PC.

If you mean that you are also installing a new Gigabyte MB under an existing installation of XP, you will probably still need the XP system disk for a reinstall of XP as it may not recognise the new MB.

If you are newly installing XP in an existing PC with the specs you mention, it should be ideal. It is best to have enough memory on board, at least 1 Gb.

Maybe IBM have some drivers but as XP is obsolete, they may not.

Operating Systems as supplied from new.
Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit
Microsoft Windows Vista Business 32-bit and 64-bit
Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit
Microsoft Windows XP Tablet Edition 2005

Are you using XP Tablet Edition as that edition has the drivers for the features?

I cant install audio device for mb gigabyte 945gcmx i have such cd to install it what can i do to install it


though itz unclear to me of wat os u r using..
assuming that u r using win xp pro sp2..n directx installed..
howevr, download microsoft kb888111 update n install it..u need to re-install or update the device driver (may b manually)..logon to internet n seek the package/audio driver..along wid the company, there will b a list of such site n driver download links if u search by the model name on a search engine like google..
download them onto a location; if the driver is in a zip format, unzip it,if itz in .exe form, just run it; if done manually it'll ask for the correct driver and location; relocate the path and a .inf file (wat it'll ask for)....goto the device manager n verify, if installed properly..!!
also download n install k-lite mega codec pack....

if not fixed try using a standby pci snd card..
but always better to consult ur system admin/vendor..!!

Gigabyte Ga-K8N Pro Windows XP Installation


Download "MEMTEST86+" from the Internet.
One version boots from a diskette;
another version boots from a CD-R (that you have created).

Either way, make MEMTEST do a "full" test of the RAM in your computer -- bad RAM can cause "unpredictable" crashes.

Error loading operating system


You have to re-install your Operating System. You have significantly changed the controllers of the mainboard (from ASUS to GIGABYTE) and therefore all of the device drivers and controllers etc that are loaded into your OS are for the ASUS board.

You can get away with no OS reinstall only if you change the same brand of mainbaord, even then its not always 100% compatible.

No tv signal on wake up


I recently dealt with the same problem. Client had upgraded to Vista on a Gigabyte M-board equipped desktop, and sound was absent until reboot, whenever PC was aroused. Client wanted me to reinstall Vista. Installed with all peripherals connected and loaded all unrecognized drivers after install. Still same problem, and nmoticed many other features disappeared after wake-up as well (extra/dedicated keyboard functions, scroll wheel on mouse, PCI-based PCMCIA card and the modem!). Sound was all my client cared about, so I wrote mfg. and got this response: Our driver is OK, follows all Vista uniform specs and addresses S1/S3 properly, but Vista does not have all its wake up from suspend/hibernate resolved, for many of our components/drivers. This is a Vista problem that MS assures us is being addressed". Client was not happy with "waiting for MS to address the envelope, please" so we reinstalled XP 64b and all works fine now. This is also your choice: wait till MS-hell freezes over, -or go back to XP. (or install Linux). Sorry. Apparently, some Vista problems just can't be "addressed yet".

No 3d acceleration in Vista on ATI 7500


Well, I'm amazed a C640 runs Vista at all. There's no reason to buy a new hard drive, except for the novenlty of having one loaded with Vista on a C640. It's a great laptop, and runs Windows XP PRo perfectly well. If you have one od the Dell XP install disks, just boot from it, and whenever it finds the vista install, hit excape, then at the next screen hit "D" to delete the partition, then choose "quick format", and load the Operation system. If you need an install disk,let me know. Good luck
