I've had a look at the Mackie website :-

http://www.mackie.com/spike_update/index.html

It shows support up to Win XP.

It also shows support for MAC but not which version of O/S.

You could do worse than ask them :- techmail@loudtechinc.com

Finally, you could load a linux operating system (UBUNTU) as a dual boot or trial on your current PC and see if that has compatible drivers.

If you install the Windows 7 disk it should install generic drivers, then run ALL the Windows Updates.

YEs, you need the install disc for Win7 that corresponds to the key on the outside of laptop. Then just install Win7 with that key that is on the laptop.

I have an old Princeton VL 173 that I had been using with an old computer running Windows XP Pro. It works fine. Got a computer with an Asus MB and a Intel Core 2 Quad running Windows 7 Home Premium...


It sounds like a driver/software issue. When you ran the Princeton VL173 on XP you probably had all the correct software for your video card and the correct drivers to support your video output. When you changes OS to Windows 7, the XP drivers are no longer in place. My best guess is that you need to find and install the correct drivers for your system video and for your video card that are Windows 7 compatible. The old XP drivers will not work in Windows 7.

I am running XP with a Princeton VL173. It works great. I identified the correct video drivers for my system and installed them. My video card is nVidia 8800GT. I downloaded and installed the latest software from nVidia and installed it. It runs like a champ.

Several months ago my display died. It was just blank -- black. I tried using a power supply (AC adapter) from an old HP printer that died, and it worked! The plugs were identical, and the power output profiles were very nearly identical. It has been rinnung great for many months now.

I hope this helps.

Can i install windows-xp on my laptop which is currently working on windows-7 and use both of them.


Hi,
Yes you can install windows xp in windows 7.
Windows XP Mode is a virtual PC image of Windows XP Service Pack 3 that could be run on Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise or Ultimate versions. Applications installed into Windows XP Mode could be run in Desktop Mode or Seamless Mode. In Seamless Mode, applications appear to run natively within Windows 7, but they are actually running inside the Windows XP virtual machine. Windows XP Mode might also provide additional integration that traditional Virtual PC images might not be giving. Applications installed on the Windows XP image could be exposed to the Windows 7 Start menu. Applications run in seamless mode is having automatic access to the Windows 7 known folders like Documents, Pictures, Desktop, Music, etc. Also the Cut-and-paste is enabled between native Windows 7 applications and those running in Windows XP Mode. Applications running in Windows XP Mode might also access your Windows 7 network connection and USB devices.

Installing windows xp, will only slow down your computer, as windows xp use much more resources than 98.

Windows 7 Audio Not working


I had the same problem i was under the impression I had a realtek audio system in my laptop but it turned out to be Conexant High Def sd2 i found it by accident but on the HP website ..so try your comps manufacturer web site and and search the driver section and u might get lucky, also right click on the driver select trouble shoot and click troubleshoot then select the program worked in an earlier version , then select your old OS (XP) then click start program and it should start to install, when it does and if it works select save settings for this device within the same trouble shoot window, u will have to do a lot of this seeing as how its an RC and not fully equipped with all drivers

Can you upgrade a vgn sz480 to windows 7 professional


Your laptop would be a wonderful candidate for Windows 7. Sony is doing a great job with driver updates and most things should work 100% right out of the box. If you have Vista, you can choose the upgrade version. If you have XP, you will need to do a clean install, Windows 7 will save your personal files and old windows installation on the "C" drive and will list it as windows.old, I would suggest though that you back up every file you want on an external drive before you start.
