When I first switched to Vista I hated it but it has grown on me now.I use XP at work and find it quite dull.I have a theory that the reason most people dont like it is that it is diffrent and people dont like change.I also think it also has a lot do with what you use you PC for. smile

cheers bud, too be honest i think i'll stay xp, thanks to abit of help off mark my jolting screen has stopped but i am still left with 2 major problems, no sound and the picture is too big for the screen, I have spent the past hour messing around with resolution sizes and the wide screen button on my tv but it still wont work, It misses half the tab bar off the bottom and top and from side to side, which is really annoying as i cant see what im doing frown I need matt lfc !

ok, i sorted that, its just the sound now i need, also is there any downloads you can do for xp that vista has, ie the tool bar at the bottom, being able to go straight to the desk top was really handy, and my toolbar at the top when on the net seems to be massive, any way of shrinking that ? I downloaded internet explorer 8 if this helps peeps.

With regards the taskbar and going straight to your desktop, simply right click on the taskbar, and select properties. Then go to the "Toolbars" tab and enable "Quick Launch".

How do you mean the toolbar is massive mate? Get a screenshot of it, then we can tell you how to fix.

Is it as custom built PC or a branded PC? If its branded, what is the manufacturer and model number?

where do your speakers plug in to the pc,you will be able to tell from that whether it is a separate sound card on onboard the motherboard.either way ,open up the pc and check motherboard model or name of sound card and then go to the manufacturers website or google the model number if there is no name.

sound card drivers are usually AC'97, but there are a few out there that aren't.

hopefully you are using genuine windows software, if you are, use windows update as this tends to pick the correct drivers for your pc

AC97 isnt a sound card/driver, its a digital to analog conversion codec chipset made by Intel, you still need to obtain the correct driver for the soundcard, as there tonnes of manufacturers who make use of the chipset.

Obtaining an incorrect driver can cause various problems.
