HP/Compaq :: Downgrade From Vista To Xp On HPDV 9646 Em

Apr 13, 2009

to successfully downgrade from Vista to XP on this machine?

If so can you supply a posotive web link where to find the right drivers,so all devices in the device driver section are activated & don't have any exclamation marks present.

I know there is a thread on HP's website & its not very instructive,it seems a bit hit & miss.

If you get it right ,you get it right!

I managed a couple of tries,but always ended up without a network controller &

some device called unibrian pc 1394 missing!

Amongst other devices not working - no sound .

HP/Compaq :: HP Envy 15 CPU "downgrade"

Mar 30, 2010

my questions can be summarized as follows:

(1) Would it theoretically be possible to put a PGA 988 version of i7-640LM into an Envy 15, and

(2) Is it easy to upgrade the HDD's for a couple standard 2.5" SSD's?)

From I understand, most people's complaints and bad reviews about the Envy 15's battery life and heat are about the older version with the HD4830, and the new version is a bit improved. That said, I can't say that I approve of a 1++ lb extra battery pack for a laptop to really be mobile, and I bet it still does get noticeably warm... Right?

So, I started thinking - the main benefits of this laptop for me would be the graphics card and USB 3.0... Maybe I can sacrifice some other factors to increase battery life and decrease heat.

I took a look at a list of i7 mobile CPU's and found the i7-640LM... And while this model is mainly available in BGA form, I correctly figured that Chinese eBay sellers might have an ES version in PGA 988. That's a 25W TDP, low voltage, dual-core CPU that would surely eat up a lot less power than a quad-core, 45W i7. I'm not sure if that CPU's memory controller would allow using four memory sticks, but I don't mind 2x4Gb... It's just another way of lowering the power usage, heat, and weight. So, question number 1: Would such a "downgrade" theoretically work? Would anything with hardware and/or BIOS prevent me from doing this? Considering that I'd want USB3, I guess I'd have to buy an i7 model from which to do the downgrade.

And secondly, are the HDD slots just standard 2.5" trays (and ~9mm thick or even thicker) and easily upgradeable? I haven't done the research, but I figured I might get a couple of SSD's that are especially low power... Though I bet just about any SSD's would be a better than HDD's.

About to purchase a new E6400 and still deciding which operating system.

I noticed that I have a choice to downgrade to windows XP which I am extremely familiar and happy with. Im not familiar that much with Vista and I am concerned with all the complaints I hear.

Im just not sure which operating system i should go with now until then.
Did anyone else have this delemna?

Sony :: Vista 64-bit To 32-bit Downgrade

Jul 12, 2009

what Sony's policy (Sony USA) is on providing a 32-bit version of Vista with the laptops that now only include the 64-bit version (such as the Sony VAIO Z7xx series)?

From the information I have come across, apparently it is at your laptop manufacturer's discretion to provide you with a 32-bit OEM copy (which would also need a different product key than the one provided with the laptop for the 64-bit version, since it is OEM and not retail) or leave you to purchase your own copy. Does anyone have experience with Sony in this regard?

if the Windows 7 upgrade kit will also be 64-bit only?

Sony :: 'Downgrade' From Vista To XP

May 20, 2009

trying to "Downgrade" my Laptop from Vista to XP, I have a legal copy of XP and when I boot from disk it wont install it just says that it cannot find a HD to install to. I downloaded a copy of XP to see if my disc was just broken or something and it let me format my HD and install XP, the only problem i have with that is i wont be able to perform updates and i only have a small screen in the middle of my display (i assume this is because some drivers are missing) also i cant connect to the internet because there are drivers missing. I have been on the sony website and downloaded some but they dont work, i think its because there designed for Vista.

So my question is this, does anyone know how I can get my LEGAL copy of XP to install and also does anyone know where I can get compatible drivers for it? My Laptop is VGN-NR38E/S.

Sony :: VGN TZ330E XP Downgrade

May 28, 2010

I have spent many hours trying to downgrade my TZ330E from Vista to XP. I need to load a couple of programs that will not work under Vista. I have all the XP files from Sony esupport ready to go and a valid XP installation cd. However, when the XP installer finally runs I get an abort message "A problem has been detected and Windows..." with the error message:
STOP: 7B-F78DA63C-C0000034-0-0. The disk is partitioned: C=20G, D=74G. The machine works fine under Vista.

I assume it is something to do with the disk, but I have tried downloading a variety of Sony drivers for Raid and SATA disks and using the F6 and S options but to no avail. Sony says the TZ330E disk drive is "ultra ATA" which I thought the XP installer should know about.

I am hoping to avoid Vista all together and jump straight from XP to 9. I am sure I have read in some reviews that the Z comes with a downgrade disk but I now can't find mention of it! does it?

Also if you do downgrade do all the features like speed/stamina mode etc... work as they do under Vista?

Sony :: Z540Window XP Pro Downgrade

Feb 19, 2009

My z540 seem to have an great deal of unwillingness to install window xp pro.

1. Blue screened right after it boot into the installation disk

2. Blue screened right before where you would go partition the drive

3. Black screen right after restart from copying files to hardrive - does not want to boot

What is going on? is my z540 curses? Or is there others?

I had the laptop warranty once already for other reason (keyboard and screen problem) cough. and they also ran a diagnostic check on hardware and it passed everything.

I am so tired of vista kept bugging out on me - half the time , my fn keys and stamina/speed switch does not even work after i used for a couple of days -.- and other reasons

Sony :: SZ71 XP Downgrade

Mar 3, 2009

I needed to downgrade one of my SZ's to XP, and all went fine until the network driver install - but the automated driver install for the rest of the components seems not to have 'taken'. I followed the instructions to the letter and every time I boot Windows it asks me for the drivers fo the video, fingerprint reader, sound, etc etc.

What did I do wrong, and how do I get around it? It was for a piece of software which is XP only that I'm required to run, but if I can't solve this easily I'm just going to say to the guy I only run Vista and let him worry about it.

Dell Inspiron 17R SE :: Downgrade USB 3.0 To 2.0?

Oct 24, 2012

I recently bought a Inspiron 17R SE. Nice machine with 4 USB 3.0 ports. That sounds great but that is also my problem. I am used to work with VMWare on Windows 7 as host OS and XP as guest OS. That is fine as long as there are USB 2.0 ports available since VMWare can only handle USB 3.0 under Windows 7 if it is based on a NEC chipset. I would not have a problem if the machine had USB 2.0 ports.

Is there a way to downgrade to USB 2.0?

Dell :: D830 Display Downgrade

I run it at 1280 x 768 for best size and aspect, but it's then a bit fuzzy, too. Is it a reasonable change to go to a 1280 x 800 high-gloss display to get crisp text and wide viewing angle?

Dell :: Microsoft Vista Downgrade

Sep 25, 2007


Seems MS has caved in,

Hate Vista? If your PC is running Microsoft Windows Vista Business or Windows Ultimate and you're fed up with the OS you may be able to ditch Vista for XP Pro. Microsoft is quietly allowing you to downgrade to Windows XP Pro.

Dell, Hewlett-Packard, and Lenovo are just a few of the system manufacturers offering downgrades. Each of these PC makers offer an XP Pro recovery disc to those who request one that can be used to revert a Vista machine to XP Pro.

Dell, HP, and Lenovo customers can request a Windows XP Pro recovery disc to be included with their purchase of a Vista machine - should they want to revert in the future. Customers who already have purchased a Vista-PC can request an XP Pro recovery CD for between $15 to $20 by calling technical support.
