Well, win xp is absolutly more fun as OS then win 2000:)
To upgrade to win xp will be no problem since Toshiba have drivers for ir. To upgrade to VISTA will...or can give you problem since there arent any drivers for that Tecra S1.
You could, drivers are based on manufacture. Like Realtek is a common maker of audio chips, and sometimes distributors use a popular motherboard. You may have plateaued at Vista, by try the Troubleshooting Compatibility with Vista 64 drivers before you roll it back.
This is another tough one. Since GW does not have Win XP drivers available for your system, it will be difficult to find a sound driver that will work. You could try to use the Vista driver, but I would be skeptical that it will work to use that driver because of the way that sounds are processed in Vista/Win 7. You didn't mention why you did the downgrade, but if it was performance related, Win 7 should work fine with your system. If there was a certain program etc., that you need, there is another option. There are many USB soundcards that will will work well with Win XP, and they should not have the XP problem since their hardware is designed to work with XP. Note: If you go this route, make sure you choose one that is Win XP compatible. One other thing on this option, though. Your internal speakers may not route sound through the USB soundcard, which would mean then that you would need external speakers to get sound. I understand that may be a deal-breaker, which is why I would (unless you specifically need XP) either go back to Vista or upgrade to Win 7. Some version of Win 7 feature "XP mode" which allows you to run programs in a virtual Win XP environment. I have not had perfect luck getting XP programs to work, but it's worth a try.
Upgrade is not suggested,
I would prefer you to install a fresh copy of Win7 on another partition on your PC's harddrive using a Win7 install CD or from a medium (Harddisk, USB device etc)
Why, because your Vista is in perfect working conditon I guess so, so why spoil it.
Many of the hardwares you use in your PC currently (like printer, webcam etc) work fine now.
But when you install Win7 they will need new drivers for it to function perfeclty and I am sure you'll have diffculty locating them.
So i suggest you keep your exisiting Vista and keep using it for your day to day work.
Install Win7 on a new partition and try to get used to it while installing all required drivers and softwares for them to function.
Once your Win7 is perfect then you can slowly SUNSET Win Vista.
One word DRIVERS. This is ya whole problem... simply Win 7 doesn't have the correct drivers for your PC. Unless ya have the correct drivers ya gonna always have problems. Find suitable drivers for everyone of your devices and store in a Directory, when you install, then, ya will have the correct drivers and hopefully Win 7 will install fine. Remember also Drivers can be installed in "Computability Mode" for XP SP2. Otherwise stick with Vista?
Was it all working OK before you upgraded from VISTA? If yes this sounds like a driver problem. Visit the cannon site and download their latest drivers for Win 7 - that is if there are any yet. As an early adoptor of Win 7 you can expect to have issues with hardware drivers where manufacturers have not yet developed them for Win 7. Once Win 7 has been out and about for 12 to 18 months most manufactures will have caught up and issued new drivers.
Restart the computer is Safe Mode (press F8 when booting to get a menu of options). This will start the computer with the minimum number of drivers and "extras" being loaded. From here you can press Win+R to bring up the Run command and enter 'msconfig' and press Enter. From this tool, you can allow your normal startup programs and device drivers to load. You will want to keep anything related to your DSL drivers disabled for the time being. Then restart the computer normally. If everything loads as it should, you can keep going back to the MS Configuration utility to add other drivers and programs one-by-one and retest (reboot again) to make sure everything is working properly. Once you know what the culprit is, you can uninstall that program and reinstall the Vista version if required. (If it is just software for your DSL modem, it probably is not required under Vista.)
