  2. Don't you think one topic would have been more than enough? If you arent using SP1 then you can use this app to patch your UXTheme: http://www.download.com/VistaGlazz/3000-23...j=dl&tag=button
  3. Actually, its impossible. RC1 has a time limit on it, which ended last year in July I believe. Maybe he meant RC1 of SP1?

  5. ATi's drivers are far more superior than nVidias. The only time i've heard that nVidia's drivers are..... "somewhat ok" are when using an 8 series card. I haven't tried their drivers in awile as i'm using ATi now, but a friend of mine described every single bug with the nVidia display drivers that I had 5 months ago..... :X But yeah, a videocard that doesn't steal from system ram should be mandatory.
  6. If you had a damaged motherboard it could have damaged your cpu, and by putting that cpu into a new mobo you may have killed that as well. I've done it a few times >_> Chances are if it worked after you installed the mobo that isn't the case.... It could be your PSU. Try putting in a new PSU and seeing if thats the issue.

    For once you are wrong about Vista. xD It's a pre RC1 build. http://blogs.msdn.com/stevecla01/archive/2.../01/735827.aspx RC1 is now available on Connect and will be made available more widely next week. Jim Allchin has released a statement about RC1's completion. A momentous Friday then - Vista is getting closer and if it's better than the 5708 build I've been using for a week, we're in for a treat.
  8. I had this issue in the beta of Vista with my old 19" moniter, if you are using DVI switch to VGA. And yes, that was with nVidia.
  9. First off, have you updated to the latest beta of nVidia's drivers? BTW: Latest Beta 32 Bit: http://www.nvidia.com/object/winvista_x86_163.44.html Latest Beta 64 Bit: http://www.nvidia.com/object/winvista_x64_163.44.html
  10. I just got a pc upgrade with a Realtek HD Audio Sound Card, full 7.1 support and all. The drivers are very well done. I think that if anyone where to take on Creative it would be them.
  11. I don't think you understand that the kernal Vista uses and the kernal Windows NT 4.0 used are completely different. Just because Vista's kernal is based off of the NT kernal does not mean its the exact same thing, actually far from it. Buggy...? Uhhhm..... no not really? Where are you getting your facts from? An article on Windows Me? I have a strong feeling you get your information from blogging. If thats the case then your being mislead. Blogs only consist of mainly one thing: That person's opinion. I'm sure you know that opinions don't exactly mean anything when compared with facts, becau
  12. Theres your problem, that hardware is OLD. I can't imagine how you still have a 4,200RPM hard disk that is actually working and hasn't died. Lets not even go into the fact your using an AMD Athlon XP processor and more than likely the memory isnt even ddr200. This whole IT DEMANDS TOO MUCH! deal happened with XP when it came out too, how easily people forget. I highly doubt that. It's so unlikely it shouldn't even be considered, let alone speculated. I hate it when people talk about Windows Seven/Vienna/NotEvenMadeYetSoDontBotherSpeculatingAboutSomethingThatJustBarelyStartedToBeWork edOn, no
  13. Well, judging from your well put and very descriptive arguement I'm going to go out on a limb and say that you are using older hardware? Atleast a couple years old? Look, if you run a next gen OS with hardware that was produced around the time Windows XP was launched you are asking for performance issues. Ok, I see where you're going with that arguement. It's all Microsoft's fault that your crappy Pentium 3 (i'm really gonna laugh if it is a p3) wont run their new OS well for you? The same way of thinking can be applied to a drunk wrapping his car around a tree and blaming the tree for the ac
  14. Hah, yeah right. Don't get your hopes up on that one.
  15. I'm sorry but I fail to see your arguement there. If it was also Microsoft's fault why does ATi have such great drivers? It has nothing to do with Microsoft, just pure laziness on nVidia's behalf. Vista (according to Microsoft) has sold more copies in the first 6 months than XP did on it's initial release. On a side note, I agree with what was said above. It's the users that bought Vista Basic that hate it, it has absolutely nothing in it.. I'd be pissed off too. Maybe next time those people will take into consideration the old saying You get what you pay for.
  16. Haha, yea I heard about this. Serves them right for bashing Microsoft all the time about security and whatnot. What goes around comes around, big time. But honestly now, is it really that surprising? Levi don't even get me started on what you said... bah I'll have at 1 bit for fun.
