I have a Dell Vostro 1450 a year old laptop with a 2nd GEN Intel Corei3 processor, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD. Earlier I had Windows 7 and it was working fine without any problems. Due to some reasons I had to install Windows 2003 Server R2. After so many attempts I could install this OS on the laptop.
HERE STARTS THE PROBLEMS:
--> 1. I could only install the ethernet driver(searched in google) but cant find any other drivers for the laptop (most of them have yellow! marks)
--> 2. Whenever I try to open the task manager the task bar freezes. Also the control panel freezes when I try to access it.(Both of them work fine in safe mode with networking)
--> 3. When I connect the external Hard drive, it doesnot even show the pop up stating something is connected.(Cant even see it in the MY COMPUTER either)
Any help in these matters will be greatly appreciated. Thank U very much for being so patient in reading all the above problems.
