View Full Version : Windows Vista System Issues?

Ok, so i downloaded the upgrade adviser to check i can have vista. Under 'System Issues', it groans on about my HD Audio Driver, TV Output, TV Tuner Card and Graphics adapter. Does this mean unless i do something about these Vista won't work? Or could it even mess my computer up completely?

It means you need better drivers and need to buy better hardware to get a nicer experience with that operating system :p Yes, buy :p It'll still work without doing that though, just you won't get the fanciest stuff on it :p

I'm pretty sure you'll get the Aero effects with an IG solution.

If it supports the latest DirectX or whatnot, yeah :p Otherwise you get a watered down version without all the fancy fades and transparencies, like I got when trying it on a machine with some crappy 16 BM graphics card that doesn't support DirectX whatsoever :p The funniest bit is it doesn't let me play Minesweeper because the graphics card isn't "powerful" enough anymore to play a basic game like that :p Yay MS Bloat :p
