Ok sorry I am new to this, what does that mean? I am still trying to figure out how to find the responses to my post! Sorry I am a newby!
Nothing to apologize for. I moved your thread to a forum that is more geared to notebooks-that's all. We have had a lot of threads recently about changing over from Vista to XP on laptops. If you have not looked through the Mobile Tech forum regarding what you are doing, you ought to-lots of good information there.
there was a post with a link to a similar problem.
Hope you get your machine staightened out. Be patient, make sure you know what hardware you have before formating and installing XP. Once your up and running you'll be really happy with the preformance of your machine!
