I have a compaq presario f500 and it has windows vista home basic installed on it. I found vista to be slow and some programs not working with vista. I would like to know if the drivers are compatible with xp. Should a run everest and cpu-z now or should i do it after the install of xp. Also ive downgraded and acer laptop to xp and when i went on the internet and scrolled down the page it was very sluggish and laggy. Any help is appreciated.

That sounds like you don't have the graphics/display drivers installed. Do you have a utility/drivers cd-rom which came with the acer laptop? If so, the drivers will be on that disc, and should auto-install when you follow instructions after inserting the cd. If not, you'd need to identify your model first. Click start, and then run, and type msinfo32 into the window. System Summary should now appear, and under System Model, you'll see the name of your machine. Then, follow this link and navigate to your model, and download and install the drivers for XP - they'll most likely be listed as VGA drivers.
