    Don't know, I'm not into marketing and sales policies. Nor do we know if he
    bought retail off the shelf, OEM from a distributor, or from his former best
    friend.

    or how long ago he bought it. Microsoft is usually limited to 30 days on
    Retail purchases.

    i thank you guys for the help
    i have had this os for a few months now..i think
    i never thought they would make something this bad
    sure you have problems with the other ones,but it never took much to get
    something going again
    in vista its like.its fixes it self where you cant ,strighten the problem out
    i dont know if i can do the registry file thing or not.i think the od
    should fix problems not start problems..i just cant stand working on my
    computer every other day
    because of a defective os system..this is crazy..i want to use my computer
    not work on it..constantly fixing problems.if i ever get it totally right
    im going to do a restore point.that may help.with future problems.
    but i cant get to that point..

    Well, you can always try moving up to a real operating system. Find it
    here ...

    http://www.ubuntu.com

    Won't cost you a cent so at least you won't feel that you're out any money.

    Cheers.

  10. if only ubantu worked on the virtual pc, only one that works on my system is
    linux xp, which is ok but it's kinda cheap as linux standards goes, you can
    tell they tried to incorporate windows xp in linux.

    what i did was ,a full reinstall..im thinking everything is working
    i did a restore point
    i hope if this defective os
    decides later to stop something from working
    like it did my dvd burner and cd burner
    i can go to system restore and get it back
    i reregisterd my copy of vista
    hopefully in a week or a 120 days i want
    get shut down,like i did a couple of weeks ago
    i bought this off the shelf
    at compusa
    i wish i had my money back
    and didnt have this going to kill me os

    they said i could get my money back
    if it was within 45 days of pechase

    thats for sure..

  13. Did you install the drivers for your motherboard?
    Did you install the drivers for you sound card, or is it, gasp.. onboard
    sound?
    How old are you parts?

    A lot of vista problems have to do with manufacturers support
    not Microsoft.

    Look at from a hardware manufactures point.

    Microsoft Releases a new O/S.
    Lets don't bother making all of our old products work with Vista.
    Everyone will have to buy new ones.
    We make more money and everyone will blame Microsoft because
    things don't work in Vista.

    Getting this to work in vista isn't any harder
    than when we went from Win 98 to XP. It's just
    that it was 5 years ago and everyone forgets the headaches
    XP caused when it was released.

    You are aware of the fact that 3rd party software broke your CD/DVD
    upper/lower filters, right? Proly Nero or some such app.
    That's not Vista or MS's fault.

  15. In your eyes nothing is ever Microsoft's fault which makes you
    Microsoft's number one pimp.

    Just the 240 something he paid.
    If he fixes it then he won't be out any money.

    Vista will not be recalled and will be the standard in the not too distant future, so you
    either bite the bullet now or bite it later because support for XP will go away!
