Answers :

Hi dorys_brian,

you may go to your device manager first, right click on the first item (saying: computer) then click on the option that says "detect hardware changes". once this is done and you are online, your computer will ask for drivers which can be found in the internet. this is strongly effective for vista. but please note that if you change OS from XP to Vista, some hardware that worked for xp may not run on vista because of drivers not made for the said hardware to work on vista.

hope this helps, lemme know if you need more info.

regards,

voodoo
