I just got a new laptop for Christmas that had Vista on it.
It crashed right out of the box while it was installing the virus updates.

I hadn't loaded a single program on it yet, only the initial set up.

My "patch" was to dump the OS re-format the hard drive and load XP.

I'm still searching for all of the drivers I need for the hardware. But at least it runs.

My next machine will be a Mac.

Sorry for the troubles brother. You should contact the manufacterer and ask for a fix. They may have given you some non compatible software- I have seen it happen before.

Just one more reason to use obsolete Operating Systems... no one targets them and by the time they are obsolete, all the 'bugs' are gone. [Windows 98SE...my "favorite".]

Let's all give a big raspberry cheer for Microsoft... :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Yeah! There was nothing wrong with 98! I loved it! Bring it back! He he he...was my favorite, too...

...I had a heck of a time graduating to XP. I was so set in my ways. Then one day, I said Okay! I installed it, didn't like it, but stuck with it. Now I'm a pro.

Now everybody's talking about Vista. I'm like: Oooooh, no! I've heard more bad than good, so I'm gonna wait for a while.

The only reason I had to leave 98 was because some software wasn't compatible.:(
