Alright, its an ancient laptop, but with a bit of luck (and pleasantly to my surprise), Vista actually installed on it. However, after getting around the initial celebration, I noticed that there were a couple of MASSIVE problems :'( 1. For some reason, I can't increase or decrease the screen brightness. I know that this problem is attributed to the driver (or lack of them!) for the Intel 830MG chipset! The XP driver just won't install onto Vista, saying that "This operating system is not supported". 2. Internal wifi. Atheros AR5BMB-44 chip also lacks a .exe driver, and I have no idea how to install the driver for it, for it is a .INF file. It won't install by right-clicking it and clicking install. Stuck with PC wifi card. Now, if I reinstall XP, install the drivers, then upgrade to Vista, will the drivers work? That's my main question here. One thing is for sure though. I am not going back to XP, it is an ancient operating system!
