I would honestly, with all my heart, suggest not using windows vista. Roll back to XP, and save yourself months of trouble with very faulty software (I say months because your computer will not last for longer with vista)... read the reviews online, they are very disappointing.

I would suggest not using Windows at all, but I'm guilty of using windows and am too lazy to learn to operate another system, so I will not say stop using the windows, but try to stay away from new Microsoft products.

take a hammer to it and then wear the keys that spill out of the keyboard as row of beads around your neck - that would be cool !

then buy a less haunted computer

Forget microsoft, try Linux, much much more stable, more versatile, free, open source, and your not supporting another corporate bully.

Try Ubuntu or Debian.

How about going back to XP?

I'd suggest sticking with XP until a service pack comes out for Vista to fix all the bugs.

not likely. deffinately not a "cpu bios" problem. no such thing. Vista should not have an incompatibility with the "normal" BIOS either. there is no such thing as a released "beta video driver" for windows although it is likely that the final video driver may cause a problem in Vista. it is also likely that the soundcard driver can cause a crash in Vista. to be honest, this new Vista system seems to cause an awful lot of trouble for a lot of ppl. its not worth the trouble to fool with and i can see already there will be a LOT LOT LOT of security vulnerabilities in it. more than XP had in its lifetime. i dont mean virus/trojans.

just rollback to XP or get a different OS.

the OS should control how the computer performs, not the video driver. :)

Hello! I wasn’t sure if you were joking - does your computer really say in words, “help me” If so maybe you should teach it manors and ask it to say please first. Cheers!

I don't understand why Microsnot would push a whole new system on the market when XP works so well- at least on my machine.... no wait- I do understand... by manufacturing obsolescence they can make more money as computer junkies pursue fleeting compatibility when the next "best thing" supplants the previous product that was working far too well to be truly profitable.

there are many games for Linux too, like:
Sauerbraten
Nexuiz
Battle for Wesnoth
OpenArena
Glest
MegaMech
BZFlag
... etc.

there are also proprietary games that have a Linux version but still require an original CD-Rom. that is understandable because they dont want ppl copying their work.

there is also Wine, but i dont really like Wine or anything that enables my computer to run Windows binaries, so i dont really promote Wine.

Hey relax up - it isnt a ghost or nothing - this is a true story now:

For about two years I used to think I could hear this baby crying at the next-door-neighbours house (we lived in an attatched terraced housing with fairly thin walls ) sometimes I could hear this woman rowing with her husband while the baby was crying

then I honestly thought about calling social services and complaining that while they're screaming at each other they just leave this baby crying - anyway I'm glad I didnt cuz some time later later we moved out of that place and one night I hear what I think is this muffled baby crying sound again- turns out its just a noisy hard-drive that from time to time sort of makes sounds like a baby about to start really crying loud. I still got the drive - it just made the sound then about a minute ago.

lol, real nice sentient. that would drive me crazy.

i also had a funky sound coming from my computer not too long ago. one night while i was trying to sleep i thought i heard the sound of a large animal breathing. i managed to ignore it for a while but it kept coming back every night. i thought maybe it was outside because i leave my window open but eventually it would get louder. it sounded real too. i actually got frightened by it one night.

then one day the noise started up again... ehhhhhh.... hhhhhhh.... (just like a huge animal breathing). so i looked out my windows and around my room. then for some reason i touched my computer and it stopped for a second. *sigh* OMG ITS IN MY COMPUTER! ahhh!

turns out it was a cooling fan i added that was making the noise. i have no idea why it would produce the same frequency of noise that a large. scary animal would, but it stopped now. :)

apart from some tough annoyances, like VBscript, Linuz is way superior. think about your computer experience without viruses and antiviruses. another pain in the ass is when you have a real old install (like mine, installed in 1999? 2000 ? i have to check, dont remember) and you come at the point that your core libraries like glibc are outdated . kernel upgrading is trivial but reinstalling THAT is a daunting task. another thing, if your distro dies you wont find binary packages, so in order to install stuff you have to use source tarballs and compile them. a pleasant exception: the OpenOffice suite, a quality replacement of MS office. the installer still works on old systems.

Times like this I'm glad I'm deaf. LOL This thread has cracked me up. Sorry you're having problems though. Ummm... I'm gonna have to go with too many trips possibly being the cause though. :)

I've heard Vista sucks. I'm a Mac user myself... and due to the words of a very knowledgable friend, when XP is no longer viable I might be changing my desktop (other computer currently using XP) over to Linux.

mandrake 8.1 , messed up with a lot of kernel upgrades... and stuff.

anyway, here the exact date , i exaggerated a bit: 17/9/2001, but right before, 2000 i think i had mandrake 8 (I installed the 8.1 onto it) and before that ... corel linux, my very first distro. definitely not a prestigious one, but, with mdk i've spent my "linux childhood" . on an old machine downstairs , a P200, not-MMX , I use slackware 9.

jagerhans, where did you come from? :)

you should try Fedora Core 6 if you ever want to get rid of any libs that may be annoying. if you need to install anything at all its a simple 'yum install programname', and 'yum update' keeps everything in check.

its great to have another linux user here. that is amazing that you still have mandrake 8.1 after so long. to be honest, i still have a pentium 133 sitting in my basement with redhat 7 on it. i dont use it though. the 2.4.xx kernels are really fast on old machines. i use 2.6.19 on my 2.3Ghz machine though. just wondering, do you have a wireless card with your 2.4 kernel?

Actually I keep coming back to the fact - sorry to Linux Fans everywhere - that I cannot for the life of me see why anyone would run a linux desktop - I think Linux is a fantastic server operating system but just a bit too hobbyist as a desktop environment - its like youre really talking to people in the big wide world who havent got a clue how to switch a computer on and yet they have been in the home environment for the better part of 25 years. Youre talking about people who go to work and operate microsoft desktops so they wanna go home and operate the same thing - Linux people just have to accept they will never NEVER win the desktop market but they probably will win the entire server market. Microsoft is dumb for dumb people thats why they make great desktops - Linux is for tech-heads - thats why its a great server

I would say linux for the desktops and freebsd/openbsd for servers many companies are going to switch to redhat, or suse in the near future
instead of upgrading to vista....
