Or if you can't afford a more expensive PC, you can always just turn off features like Aero (which is a huge memory hog) and several other services. From what I've read, it really depends on use and what you're running.  Just make sure any applications you want to run are approved to run on Vista beforehand.

That depends on your opinion. Vista does require more powerful computer specifications to its improved visual and performance features. With any new release you can run into hardware compatibility issues, but normally if the computer comes from the manufacturer with Vista installed then it should run just fine. There are several specific reasons why someone would stay away from Vista but if the machine comes with it you might as well use it.

I upgraded my computer from Windows XP to 64bit Vista. I have a PIXMA MX310 and I can print but the scan and fax will not load. Do you have a fix for this for a 64bit Vista? Thanks


Dude, upgrading to Vista was a bad decision. XP has been the best rated windows OS ever, so far. Vista is known for its issues and bugs. Today my high school teacher said that whenever he tries to access his hotmail account the computer freezes. First thing I asked, is it vista? guess what he said: yes. So I asked him if he was using Internet explorer, he said: yes. I said to download firefox and Safari and give those a shot, and if it doesn't work, buy an XP install disc and install that. Computers need lots of RAM and HD and a good Processor to run vista, so if its a vista bought machine, putting XP on it will make it like a super computer. If your buying a computer buy one thats running vista and head back to XP

Issues with Vista


If it is not compatible, you mean there are no drivers for it?
The only thing you could try is to install the XP drivers in Vista in the compatibility mode (assuming you have XP drivers).

Hello, normally the best way would be to go to the manufacturer's website, which I did but they do not address drivers support for Vista OS, might want to do a search for the camera's drivers and chek to see if there are any compatible 3rd party drivers available, hope this little info helps.

Windows XP verses Vista


Windows XP is much more stable than Vista. You will also have to purchase more memory if you decide to go with Vista. So many people as for XP over Vista that Dell and HP have started offering it as a default option. As far as upgrading goes, it is pretty much inevitable that at some point you will have to upgrade your Operating System. Windows 7 is the next one coming out.

Hope this helps. If you have further questions feel free to reply.

Sharing a printer between a Vista Home Premium and XP Media Center Computer


Hi cavman6

(01) Is the Vista computer able to access ANY shared resources at all on the XP machine?

(02) Are you running any firewall software (other than the firewall built into the operating system) on either computer?

(03) If you are, please, let us know which firewall software it is and, for now, please, disable it.

(04) Do both these computers have Internet access? (I'm assuming they do but I do need to ask.)

(05) Is the printer currently ONLINE and working properly w/ the XP machine?

IF YOU HAVEN'T DONE SO ALREADY, PLEASE, DO THE FOLLOWING:

(06) Assign *both* computers to the same network WORKGROUP.

(07) Ensure that file and print sharing are enabled on the XP machine. If you'd like, do so on the Vista system, too.
(A) How to on Windows XP
(B) How to on Windows Vista

(08) "Share" the printer on the XP machine (in printer properties).

(09) Can each computer now see itself AND the other computer on the network?

(10) Have you added your user name and password that you're using on the Vista system to the users list on the XP system?

(11) If you haven't done so already, please, do this. The user name should have a password associated w/ it. So, if you aren't using a password on your Vista system profile, assign one then add that user's credentials to the users list on the XP system.

Please, post back here w/ what you've tried and the results, your observations and any other comments or questions.

Thank you
BJ @:)

Windows Vista Business vs XP


Vista is a huge change for you then. I understand your frustration.


It really just depends on what your used to, your PC specs,etcs..

You do not need to buy a new computer just to have XP.

What you can do is erase Vista off the new sony, and install XP. I can help guild you if you like, on the phone it's almost a 1-3 hour talk. Depending on your experience etc..


It's an easy process downgrading to XP, all you need is:
1.A XP Disk.(The Windows XP Operating System Disk)

That's it, you get that and we can down grade your Sony to XP.

I recommend people get vista for a secondary PC like have a desktop that you do your work on, and if you have a laptop get vista on it as your personal computer. But on the desktop being your work keep it as is.


Let us know what you decide,

Thanks and I hope this helps,

-Cameron
