Hey all! I was wondering if anybody had some suggestions for me in terms of switching from Vista back to XP. My mom just got a laptop that has Vista installed on it.. However, she's already running into all sorts of problems, such as software not being compatible, etc.. So, does anybody know of a simple way for her to go out and find the drivers that she needs, in order to switch to XP? Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks! :huh:

The simplest way would be to check with the manufacturer of the PC for their downgrade program. If they don't have one, or it's not offered for your model - then it's going to be difficult (but not usually impossible) to find drivers for it.

LynnKnows2, have you tried downloading all the updates including Service Pack 1? That has fixed a lot of program incompatibility problems.

Just a thought before you go to XP. :huh:
If I am helping you and I do not respond within 24 hours, please send me a PM. :)
